How long can you wait?

Recommended Posts

How long can you wait for an AHR? We are getting married in Nov. and would really want a casual out door BBQ. My Mom thinks it needs to be at most a few weeks after but not to close to Christmas. We live in Canada so an out door BBQ in Nov/Dec. is out of the question, any advise?

We are having ours before our wedding so we're calling it a pre-wedding celebration/send-off party. We also wanted an outdoor bbq/picnic style AHR and our wedding is in Sept. By the time we get back and host everything, it will be late Sept and might be a bit chilly to have anything outdoorsy and still be comfortable. So, we opted to have ours in August.

 

But you can do whatever you want and have it whenever you want. If you want to wait until the following spring/summer, go ahead! There really aren't any rules on when/where you can have an AHR! G'luck!

Quick question, how are you doing your invites for a sendoff? We are planning to have maybe 5-6 couples from our hometown, but didn't know if we were better off including others early with someting like your sendoff, or sending save the dates for the AHR at the same time we do wedding invites? And do something a month or so later?

 

I don't want to do any showers because we are not having that many folks from here, but our friends that are invited from here don't seem to get why it may be rude to include those who aren't coming to the wedding. Advice??

My wedding is in June and my AHR is in September. So thats a three month lag for me!

We're also getting married in Nov. and don't plan on having AHR until the nice weather arrives...probably not until June. We just think it will be nice to have a fun bbq --and winter in Toronto is definitely no time for a bbq!

 

Happy planning!

We are also getting married in November, and planning a casual summer BBQ. I realize that it's a long time in between (living in Saskatchewan, it could be June or July) but that's fine with us. We want to keep it as a fun casual event, so if it turns out more like a party and less like a 'reception', even better!

We're getting married in November also and probably won't have our AHR until January or February. I don't want to compete with the holidays since people are always so busy that time of year.

I'm doing my AHR 6months after the ceremony. People can easily figure out that you delayed the AHR, so that it can be outdoors.

I was wondering the same thing! We met in February '06, officially got together in February '08 and got engaged in February '09. I'm a teacher, and we want to do a cruise wedding, so it has to be in the summer while I'm off. We're getting married in August '10, and I was thinking of doing the AHR in February '11...six months later. I'm glad I'm not the only one waiting so long!

We are going to do our wedding in January, and likely will wait until May or June for the AHR... of which I think we are having 2!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
