    WOW thank you for all the feedback! It really helped.

    Last night I talked it over with my mom and FMIL and we are going to have it! Yay! They are both paying for it (So how can we refuse?) Its going to my at my in laws house, a backyard luau/bbq! We have a lot of family and friends who are not attending the wedding that we want to share with. I am very happy with our decision!

    As for the bridal shower, I was only going to have my sister invite those going to the wedding (didn’t really know the etiquette on this) but now that we are having the AHR she is going to invite everyone she would with a traditional wedding (if that makes sense). She didn’t send out invite yet but she is going to say something along the lines of AHR to follow...

      well, it looks like i'm not the norm on this forum! We're absolutely having a reception at home. we have approx. 40-50 people going to jamaica, then at a home party we're having 250-350 (still have a few months to plan that) I will admit i've had to give and take, due to budget restrictions, mainly no live band in jamaica just steal drums for the walk down the aisle and a dj for the rest of the night. But we are planning on having a live band at home since more people will get the satisfaction from it.

      We're getting married at Moon Dance and then having AHR at my parents house. The AHR will have a cigar roller, food, booze, etc. Ya know just me and 200 of my parents closest friends, hell they're paying for it!!!!
