Our AHR isn't going to be very traditional, just a big celebration with friends.

At out AHR, we had over 100. We had it on the rooftop deck of DH's restaurant/bar ... and it was casual. Beer, wine and low-country boil ... plus my Mom and girlfriends helped me make cupcakes and we had a cupcake tower. That was it. I bought decorations that we could re-use and kept the cost to about $2K probably, total.
The joy of having a DW and/or AHR is that it is what you make it - and that can mean simple or extravagant.

A formal AHR would just cancel all that out. We had a casual AHR, but just because my MIL put one together. It was very nice & I really enjoyed it.
Several brides have said they regret having a big AHR and wish they just scrapped the plans for that. I know a lot of us felt guilt like we had to have an AHR to make it OK to have a destination wedding. I wish I never wasted time & energy feeling like I HAD to put one together, even though I wasn't into it at all.
