At home reception?????
Posted 29 December 2008 - 05:56 PM
We keep going back and forth on the whole AHR thing. I feel we should have it..my finance on the other hand isn't really feeling it. I know a lot of people will not be able to make our wedding, so I feel obligated to have a little something back home.
Just wanted to know who is actually doing this themselves and what the planning process is. We are getting married May 8, 2009, so I was thinking on having it in June, the first or second Sat.
Also, if we do go through with it, what should we do for the bridal shower then? Should I send out invitations for the AHR at the end of March so that I can have a bridal shower in April for all the guests(for Mexico and here??) Or should I not invite the guests from the AHR to the shower I'm confused!
Any tips/help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Right now I am in panic.. we leave in just over a month.. gone Jan 31st to Feb 15th (marrying on the 6th :-) ) and then reception back in our home town March 7th.
The exciting thing.. is getting to wear the dress twice... and having a BIG BASH when we get home.. no pressure no jitters.. just a great big party with friends...
Our wedding will only be about 8 people in Mexico.. back home we are doing an evening reception... We are catholic so we are getting our marriage 'blessed' at 6:30pm and then having a reception (toasts and a slide show of the mexico wedding) at 7:30 - 8.. then party starts right after with a late lunch to be served about 10-10:30.
I can't wait, but the planning is driving me mad... One hint.. we are having all the rsvp's to be back BEFORE we leave to Mexico (Jan 29th) so we don't have to worry about it while we are in paradise..

What do you mean by having your marriage "blessed?" we are catholic too and it is pretty important that we are eventually married by the catholic church for his parents. Could you give me more details on that?
Also, did you guys send out separate invitations for the AHR?? Did you guys have a bridal shower for both receptions before your Destination one? Sorry if that sounds confusing!

Sorry I can't help you out in that department, for us it was an automatic that we were going to be paying for everything. I've been saving for over a year for this!

Some people broadcast their wedding via the web for guests to watch and enjoy that can not make it or afford to go.
Now this does not really affect having an at home reception... and you will get to wear your dress again! But, it is something to consider if you concerned about sharing your day with guests that can't make it.
