    Hi all,
    We are having a huge AHR a little over 1 month after we get back. The initial guess is somewhere between 100-200 people for AHR. Of those people only 20 will be invited to the wedding.

    I am doing boarding pass STD's for those attending the wedding. Should I also do a second set of STD's for those we are only inviting to the AHR? Or do I only send out the AHR invite to them? Also does the AHR only invite need to be sent out after we are married and be worded as an announcement also? I am not exactly sure when those need to be sent out.

    Thanks ladies, you are the best!! Carla

      I would only send out AHRs if the event is really far away, like 6 months or more. I don't think there is much point if you are only sending them out like 2 months before the invites, people might find that silly.

      Personally, I just sent a mass email to warn people about the date and stuff in advance and told them a formal invite would follow. But people in our families and friends don't do STDs, I actually never heard of them before joining the forums!

        Thanks for the input. We have a good number of family that are not.... well computer savvy. Which is why I have to mail something, even if it is just an invite.

          I did boarding pass STDs and the last page was about my AHR. I sent these out to all of my guests, those I knew were attending the wedding and those that couldn't travel.

          Your AHR invites need to go our 6-8 weeks before the event.

          Since ours went out before the wedding the wording was:

          Erin and Mike will be married in JA on June 21.

          Please join us in celebration upon our return July 26.

            DOH! I just noticed I put this in the wrong forum. Mod could you please move this to the STD & Invite forum? Thanks, Carla

              I do not think AHR STDs are necessary. Between word of mouth and the actual invite, I think you'll be just fine. I plan on sending out the AHR invites in April, probably the weekend before we leave for the wedding or when we get back. Our AHR is June 20.

                I don't think you need AHR STDs either. I've never received one for a local wedding before.
