How long is/did your AHR last?

Recommended Posts

Ours is this Saturday! I am excited for it but also ready for it to be done!

 

We can get it at 10 AM to set up (it's the Eagles club so they aren't so formal in their rules)

 

We went with 5 hours:

5:00-5:45 apps and people arrive

6:00-7:00 Buffet dinner with our pic slideshow and ceremony video

7:-7:15 first dance and cake cutting

7:15-7:30 thank yous to family/friends

7:30-10:00 dancing!

Ours went from 6:30-11. We had a cocktail hour from 6:30-8, then moved to the dinner/dancing room, where we did our introductions, had dinner, ate our cupcakes, and had a great time!

We're having a very traditional AHR, with hors d'ouevres, drinks, DJ, etc. We have the hall for 24 hours (midnight to midnight which isn't exactly handy for clean up so we're paying them to do that, and I can't say I'm terribly sorry about that situation), but I scheduled the reception for 4 hours, mostly to keep costs on food and drinks down to something manageable. :-)

Well, we are having it at my Dad's art gallery that he owns so we are not limited on time. However, the invites that were just sent out do say "6:30-8:30". We are just doing beer/wine + hourdeurves (however the HECK you spell that!!! LOL), but we're also trying to squeeze in our legal ceremony. Personally I don't think 6:30-8:30 is enough time (my Grandma planned it tho - lol)... I'm thinking we'll stay and dance and stuff til at least 10... I think 4 hrs is plenty of time.

We are doing ours from 8-12 at a local Cuban restaurant. It is semi-formal. I am not even sure that I want to wear my wedding gown so I am thinking of getting a short, more casual one. We are having a buffet, beer, wine and Sangria, and the restaurant has a bar right outside the hall so if anybody wants to drink something else, it's right there. I have not ask about the set up time but since ours is the only one that day I don't think we'll have a problem with that the manager is so nice but I'll ask anyways. We are also planning on getting a dj and showing a slideshow of our pics.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
