At first, we thought of having what I called a "pre-ception" - I envisioned a Jack and Jill shower prior to the wedding, inviting only those who could not make it. We thought of having it at a museum or small restaurant...we pick a set menu and pick up the tab.
Then we started getting our RSVPs back...and realized that those who weren't coming to the wedding were really courtesy invites....we realized that the majority of those we invited to the wedding period were courtesy invites! A destinaton wedding is a hard sell...so we invited many people out of respect, knowing that they would not make it.
At the end of the day, those closest were coming...so we decided not to incur the added expense.
So no AHR...and I am quite happy about it!

However, after the honeymoon, we will probably host a casual BBQ at our home for those who couldn't make it (grandparents, etc.) and show them pictures from the wedding.

So for the Maui fam who can't make it(flights are $1500.00 alone and it is farming season for them), FI and I decided to travel there for a few days of the honeymoon (about 6 mo after wedding) have a family BBQ. We will then island hop for some alone time.
Nothing for an AHR acutally back at home in Colorado.

I just hope no one hates me for life! I'm going to my friend's wedding this summer (in my home town) and I feel terrible because she wasn't invited to my DW (and we've been friends since grade 3). I didn't invite any friends except my BMs, but it still feels awkward :S

we'll probably have a BBQ/ pool party at the house over the summer.
