Looking for some advice for my AHR. We're having a really small wedding and then having a party when we get home to the UK for everyone who we didn't invite to Australia.
The trouble I'm having at the minute is I'm undecided on how formal I want the evening to be. We've already booked a really nice hotel for the evening and mum and dad have said they want to have a ceilidh band, so they're paying for that and a disco for us.
Food wise, I'd love to have a carvery - with some nut roast or something for the veggies! That way we can have a really nice evening without the formality of a proper sit down meal.
I don't know whether to get a photographer? I know there will be lots of people with cameras, and we'll be able to get these in one area, but I don't know if it's worth while getting someone 'professional' in to do some shots.
I don't know if I should have a cake as well. We'll have something sweet, but I don't know if a cake would seem more appropriate.
Decisions decisions... If anyone can help, I'd love any advice you've got!

Cake? We did not do a cake. In part becuase we are not big cake eaters and I did not want to have to cut it. We figured if it was there - people would want us to cut it. We did a selecton of desserts (gelato, cookies, chocolate fountain, and parfaits), which people seemed to really enjoy.
Photographer? Pictures are extremely important to me. Yet, I opted not to hire a photographer. I put disposible cameras on the tables and figured I could get copies of people's digital prints. A month later and I haven't been able to get digital copies from anyone. And, for the cost of purchasing and printing a lot of okay pictures from the disposible cameras, I wish I had looked into how much a photographer would have cost.

We are not getting a photog because we have done e-pics, I did BD pics and we are paying for an outside photog to come to Mexico. My friends think they are the paparazzi so we set up a photo share site on picasaweb for everyone to upload their pics.

I like the idea of cupcakes - I could even do those myself I guess!
I'm sorry your photos didn't work out Jamaica0169 - I'd hate for that to happen. Maybe it would be worthwhile having a look around and seeing what I could get for the evening...
What other traditions are you girls wanting to tie into your AHR Anything really different that you're glad you're going to do/did do
