I feel like maybe I shouldn't have said anything until later, but like other girls have said, they probably weren't reliable anyway and weren't going to come to Jamaica. My aunt had the nerve to ask my mom, I'm glad she's having an AHR, do you think she'll do a mock wedding so we can see everything? Lol! Come to Jamaica then. But, we are planning to have my pastor dedicate our marriage and we will be in our wedding attire and will show the video but we are not reinacting our vows or anything.

I agree that if people use the AHR as an "easy out" they couldn't be counted on to come to the wedding. We are including both in our STD but not providing any details about the AHR. Whatever you decide will be the right one.

I sent out invitations for my Destination Wedding and I did informal Postcard invitations. They had the wording of a formal invite and then also had the link to our website to get the information for the travel etc. I did say that I would love to have everyone join us in Mexico, but that I understand that not anyone would be able to make it. I gave the AHR date on there and told people to Save the Date.
My family (aunts) are not going to be able to make it and want to throw my bridal shower. I have never been married and have been in 13 weddings (MOH 8 times) so I would really like a traditional shower. They want to throw this for me about 6 weeks before I get married. I'm getting married on Nov. 11, 2010 and my AHR we put in January so we could get thru the holidays. Because I have guests being invited to my shower that are NOT on my Destination invites but ARE invited to the AHR I am sending out SAVE the Date cards now for my AHR. I just feel like I need to do that and then I will send out Formal Invitations after we are married for the January date. This was a lot to think about, but at 39 I decided I'm not going to worry so much about what is right and do what I feel is appropriate. Hope this helps someone!

I sent out message in a bottle invitations to DW, just to immediate family members and friends. I was kind of just spreading by word of mouth about the AHR. Well we recently went to FI's sisters wedding and saw alot of his family and friends we haven't seen in awhile. A couple of them came up to us and said we will be with you in spirit on your wedding day, and we mentioned the AHR and they had no idea and were so excited.
So FI the next day decided he wants to send STD for the AHR. So I'm sending them out next week, since we are still 6 months until the AHR in February I didnt think it would be to awkward and wanted to get them out before my shower invites went!
The wording for my STD is
Nicole Plante & Scott Yakuboski
will be married on December 2, 2010
Riviera Maya, Mexico
Please kindly save the date
February 12, 2011
to celebrate our marriage with us.
Invitation to follow

Great suggestions ladies. We decided to send out post card STD's. On the backside we have said the following:
Join us for our wedding in paradise!
Bride and Groom say "I Do."
New York City
Formal invitation to follow.
For more information please visit our website.
I thought this way everyone knows upfront they can come to either, neither or both. I'm not worried about those that use the AHR as an excuse to not come to Mexico. Frankly, I'm glad their saving me the time it takes to make the extra OOT bag
