We've been debating back and forth about having an AHR. I think we've finally come to a decision to have one.
My question is, how many months after you get married (or come back from the wedding) is appropriate for an AHR? Is 6 months afterwards too late? Will people wonder why the heck you waited so long or what is the point of having a party so long afterwards?
Anyone have any input on this? I would appreciate any help.
Thanks a bunch!

I wouldn't wait longer than 6-8 weeks, but that's just me...

We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!
We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

Are you having it 6 months later due to weather? You can always have it indoors. We are calling ours a Mr & Mrs. Party, so we won't be doing all the traditional RECEPTION things. I think no more than 6-8 weeks is a good time for AHR. Goood luck with whatever you decide to do.

I agree with the girls, 6 months is quite long unless there is a specific reason.

I think you can have a AHR any time -- even 6 months later!
(Maybe waiting a YEAR is TOO long though, lol:-))
I think people understand the expense of throwing such a party and understand you may want/need to wait a bit...or have to wait b/c of the weather:-)
Whatever the reasons are...I think people are just happy to be invited to a party with free food and booze!

We've actually decided not to have an AHR now. It's too expensive (for us) plus we don't really want to bother. If I had wanted to do major planning, we would have gotten married here.
Thanks for all the great tips!
