How long is/did your AHR last?

Recommended Posts

I am trying to come up with how many hours I need to book my AHR venue for. I was thinking a total of 5 hours which includes setup/break down.

 

Do you guys think that 3 hours would be a sufficient amount of time?

Or should I be looking at 4 hours? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

I think it depends on what type of AHR you want to have...we rented out a room at one of our favorite places and then we will have an open bar and hor'derves for 3 hours but the place will be open for people to stick around as long as they want. If you are doing a sit down dinner and dancing you probably want 5 if you are just doig cake 2 would be perfectly acceptable

 

What kind of AHR are you planning?

Ummm... We want to serve Hor'de Vours (Sp?) and have a cake. We wanted to basically show our wedding video, then have a DJ. So basically we want just a party, nothing formal, although we will wear our attire and have a first dance before the dancing begins...

 

Is this possible in 3 hours?

I think I'll call the venue and see if set up/break down time is free. That would be awesome, and would save me some money!

We were actually deciding between 4 or 5 hours and couldn't decide so I decided on 4 and 1/2..haha! we are doing appetizers, cocktails, and some food. We are also showing our DVD slideshow from the wedding! :)

We rented a picnic area for $200 for the entire day (until sunset) so we plan to start our AHR at 1:00 with us getting there at around 12:00 to set up and we plan to go until the last person leaves and then just clean up and go. So it could go as long as 7-8 hours.

We are basically having a party. We're going to have a buffet, cake, bar, and a DJ so we got ours for 4 hours, from 6-10. The banquet hall we are having it at gives us one hour for free prior to the start of our event for our vendors to set up but that doesn't include the time we need to decorate so we will be paying for an extra hour for that.

Ours was a flat rate from 6:00 to 1am, so we spent 1.5hrs setting up and then the party started at 7:30pm and went right till 1am. Ours was cocktail syle with dancing.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
