Our AHR is going to be a VERY simple backyard BBQ - BYOB, family playing music, pot luck - just a big party really!
I agree with Kelly that there are no rules/proper etiquette for DWs. Go with the flow!!!

That being said, traditional etiquette states that the brides family pays for the wedding (incl reception) and the groom's family pays for the rehearsal dinner.
We are paying everything ourselves since our families are paying $$ just to come to the wedding.
IMO, if you are unsure, you should sit down with FH's family and your own to discuss finances. That way everyone is clear and in agreement with who is paying for what...

but if you're from the traditional "bride's family pays for the wedding" mindset, i would say sit down with your your parents and ask them what they are willing to cover. normally, the reception is the part that has the big price tag, and is therefore what the bride's parents pay for, but in this case it's not the actual wedding, so i don't know. i would think they'd pay for the dreams wedding and reception there, but not the AHR.
personally, i have never heard of the groom's family being financially responsible for anything, except the rehearsal dinner.

Keep a smile on your face and the rest will take care of itself.
