AHR question

Recommended Posts

How long after the wedding does everyone wait to have an AHR? I want it to be long enough for FI family to travel again, but I live in NE and dont want it to be in winter, so the 1 year anniversary wouldnt work as our date is Nov 7. Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

Im in the same situation. We are trying to decide when to have our AHR. We are getting married 4/16/9. 5/22/9 is available at the place we would like to have our reception. My mom thinks we should have it within a week or 2 of returning from our wedding. But photos/video will take over a month to receive from the photographer. We really want to have our wedding video and photos played at the reception, so I think we are going to have it about a month after returning. But I think really its what will work best for you.:)

We are planning on a summer vacation to Newfoundland - that is when we will have our AHR aka Backyard BBQ Celebration!! We typically go "home" every summer, so it was kind of a no-brainer!!

If you want it to be warm, then why not the summer after your wedding?? It is a new year...so people's vacation days from work should not be a problem. And it's still 8 or 9 months from your DW.

Hey that is a great date! Mine too! I am thinking we are waiting till the spring our first date was April 7th a long time ago now so we are maybe thinking then or around that time.. Haven't really decided on that part yet... maybe do it on a special day that has meaning to you both sometime warm perhaps....

It doesn't really matter when you decide on having your AHR... some do it right away once they get back and others wait a few months or more til the weather is better in your region to have something relaxed and outdoors. I was married on Nov 8th this year and our AHR is scheduled in a few weeks on Jan 17, 09. No way did we want to compete with people and the holidays... trying to fit everything in ones schedule this time of year is just nuts.... Jan we picked because it is the time of big let down (I guess) Christmas is now gone... and people don't have much to do in Jan... slow month for everyone. Living up here in the Northeast... Winter plays a huge part in how people schedule things.. we opted for an afternoon reception (No one likes to drive at night... nevermind if it's snowing) at a resturant that has a ballroom. Since it's Jan super cheap.. and this year we helped them decide on a Beach Party for New Years Eve... sooo I get to use all the decorations for my reception free.

I personally think a month to two months is a good time. You dont want to be married for to long before you have your ahr because most of the excitement would have worn off. We are planning ours a month after the wedding and were doing a backyard fiesta. Hope this helps.

    • Hello everyone. Who have a destination wedding in 2020? Do you postpone it or celebrate? Please share with you experience.
    • Now we can say life is divided into before and after. And only now I understand our life was so good when there were no restrictions and quarantine. Thank you for sharing this beautiful wedding story. We also got married before the pandemic, and we had a beautiful wedding and a wonderful honeymoon. And during the quarantine, my husband lost his job and was depressed, we had big family problems that could lead to a divorce. Fortunately, I found a blog with marriage advice on how to avoid divorce and we passed this test.
