I agree whole-heartedly!!!! We had a rather big DW (86 guests) and prior to leaving had a stag and doe (hosted by our wedding party) -- which I like to consider our 'local dance/drunk party' -- I never even considered an AHR, especially since so many see it as a gift grab.

Don't do it, and don't feel guilty!

I agree!! DONT DO IT! I just got back from my amazing DW last week, and have my AHR in August. I totally want to cancel it, I already had my perfect wedding day, i don't need to do it all over again for people who didn't come to my wedding... I am DREADING it and already tried to cancel it, but we would lose our deposit...

I am not having an AHR because I can't afford to and as someone previously mentioned, if we really wanted to celebrate at home we would have just gotten married at home. Also, I am not obligated to buy everyone food and drink just because I am getting married. My life with my FH comes first and unless I can still have the lifestyle I want after I am married, an AHR really is not high on the priority list.

it is you wedding so do what you feel is right - You will have enough to do with the move let alone organising a AHR in the short time you will be home before the big move (plus it is a long enough flight to get "down here" to Australia without being stressed out)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
