SunBride's AHR reviews and advice (UPDATED with link to our dance)

Recommended Posts

Everything turned out beautifully, and your review reassured me that everything with our own AHR will be a-okay. So I thank you!

Oddly enough, the plans for ours closely resembles your second reception. :)

I didnt even see this other thread you started Steph!

So we are needing a AHR after our March wedding at DT for around $100 people. But because we are already paying $15000 for our DW (paying for our siblings and two closest friends) we need it to be ummm, well "economical." Oh and did I mention that 120 people will be invited?

We are thinking around May when the weather is nicer and to give adequate time for our photos to arrive (so 8 weeks after our wedding) do you think thats too long?

 

Any thoughts/suggestions would be welcomed!

Thanks ladies

Well I would just reiterate some of what I already said and suggest that you suggest a casual get-together, either backyard style or I guess rent a room if you have to (since it may not be warm enough to be outdoors) and do a hors-d'oeuvres reception (find a place that will let you bring your own alcohol so that you can save a lot of money, something like a community hall). For us one big concern was people thinking that we were having a reception only so that we would get gifts, and I did feel like if people were going to be generous with cash (which I knew my family would) that they should get a good party out of it with dinner and liquor and everything. But like I mentioned before if that is a concern for you with having a cheap party than maybe just write something like "your presence is your gift" on your invitation. Some people will provide gifts anyways but at least there will be no pressure for those who are overly negative and always assume the worst.
