invites to ahr

Recommended Posts

whats the etiquette on this? Do I invite the same people that are going to the wedding? What if most people I invite to the wedding go- then the AHR celebration would be small. If I invite the same people to the AHR that are invited to the DW will they think I am just double dipping on the gift?

My FI and I had a meeting with our parents and completely switched everything up for our AHR - I think I'm going to post a thread about it, but we are going to end up being a little more selective on our invites.
What is happening is we were up to about inviting 150 ppl, then my mother in law forgot a list to give me, and etc etc, and now we are up to 200 ppl.
I think we are telling everyone that our AHR is going to just be for family - close family, and we are just going to do appetizers/cocktails and show our photos and video etc. It wasn't even about money that made us take the guest list down, it was because we were getting so stressed thinking about 200 pppl party and we didn't want to focus on our AHR, we want to focus on our actual wedding in PV.

I hope this helps....

We are inviting a total of around 100 people. This includes the people that are invited to the wedding, although most family that will come to the wedding won't be at the AHR due to distance, besides our immediate family. our AHR is mainly for our friends.

We have 30 ppl coming to our DW and will be inviting around 100-150 to the AHR. All those coming to the DW are invited to the AHR. We originally invitied about 50 to the DW (we used evite.com) to see who is coming...30 are able to come.

 

Based on the evites and all those who booked through our TA, We sent Boarding pass invites to the 30 that are coming to Mexico. And for the AHR, we are doing annoucements and a invite to the AHR combined.

 

Our AHR is for all those CLOSE friends and fam that can't make it to Mexico and all those who did make it too. I plan to have an A and B list...those we really want there will be A's, then we will see who all is coming and maybe invite more on the B list. :)

 

 

We look at the AHR as a party to celebrate...we even call the wording a celebration and leave off the word reception. We are doing super casual Mexican buffet, cake and an awesome fun band. Basically just a party. Just for fun! :)

 

Hope this helps!

We are having a ceremony with just the two of us. We wanted it like that because it was so romantic and besides we didn't want to deal with all the stress. We then decided to have a very simple get-together for family and friends back home. Well, to make a long story short, we went from a simple BBQ at my sister's backyard to a small party at a hall to now a more si-formal wedding at a very nice local restaurant. We are inviting 100 people (I do not want to go over that number). Even though it's not what we were planning at all, or the budget we said we'd stick to, I am happy now with my decisions. we are having our closest friends and family. It is a very nice restaurant and the food there is delicious. So now, I just have to do all the planning and prep...

We are having 30 in Mexico and about 200 at the AHR. We sent save the dates to everyone with a link to our website--they also had both dates on them. Everyone was welcome to go to Mexico with us, but we knew only close friends and family would be able to go. Our AHR is about a month after the wedding. I'm just not sure what I'm doing for invitations yet though.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
