AHR questions and queries...
Posted 06 November 2008 - 02:08 PM
We are starting to think about our AHR (we won't be holding it till next July, but we realize we have NO IDEA where to start with all this). I contacted a catering company to ask some pricing questions and they had a bunch of questions for me that had me realizing I really don't know how to plan this!!!
Sooo ... our AHR is not going to be anything massive. We're expecting 50-80 people, we're not having an informal ceremony and I am NOT wearing my wedding dress again (despite my mother's hopes and dreams).
For those of you holding an AHR what time are you holding it? Is it just a cocktail (what we want to do) with hors d'oeurves ... if so did you do it from 2-6, noon-4 something like that? I'm so confused ...
Also should there be speeches? Acitivities? We want to have pictures from the wedding on a projector for everyone to see and we're going to have a cake as well ...
I feel so lost. Any and all advice would be much appreciated ladies.

We are going to have a blessing done at 2pm-ish until 5 and then tapas (Spanish hors douves), sangria and desserts. HUGE money savings this way.
We plan on having a pinata for the kids and maybe a couple other fun things for them. We want it to feel more like a family get together than a reception.

We may do a first dance at the AHR, but no garter toss, etc.
We are only taking a small group (20-30 people, 22 confirmed so far) to Jamaica, so the reception will be nice to celebrate with the rest of our family and friends.
