At Home Reception - Suggestions
Posted 07 January 2009 - 03:40 AM
I'm new at this and am wondering what most people do for thier AHR?? We are going away in November for the wedding and I thought a Backyard BBQ would be nice....but DEFINATELY not in Nov!!
I don't even know what is expected at an AHR...obviously we are going away for the wedding to save money, so we don't want to spend a lot on this when we get home, but would love to do something to get everyone that couldn't come out for the wedding together to celebrate. Any ideas and suggestions would be most welcome.
We aren't looking for a big deal but just something to see all those who couldn't make it...

I am getting married in Mexico June 11th. We are going to have our AHR the end of July or beginning of August (I want to have our professional photos back prior to the AHR).
We are having our at my FI's sisters house. She has a really nice house with multiple areas (a sunroom, backyard, large family-living room area, and a open finished basement). We are planning on having appetizers (some will be made some will be purchased) and will have alcohol (might be wine and beer or we may also have hard liquor). I plan on having a slideshow of pictures running in the basement on a big TV and then having some pictures and decorations around the house. We are planning on making it more of an open-house type event. People can come and go as they wish for several hours.
We hosted an event that was similar as a shower for my FI's brother and it was around $700-1000. That included renting some tables and heavy appetizers and drinks.
*I have thought about getting a professional photographer for it but am not sure.
Hope this helps

I will definately have to do it indoors somewhere because YES Candadian winters aren't good for an outdoor bbq!
But gives me some good ideas to work with. Thanks again!
