    Hi east coast gals,
    I am from Newfoundland, living in Newmarket On.. Go figure I had to stick with a comfortable name.
    We are getting married feb 2/10 and planning our AHR for June, we have a pool so we're looking to do a pool side party with friends and family. I am not to sure about wearing the dress again, we'll see.

      I'm in Toronto and we will be having an AHR but we have no idea where to hold it. It will be fun to party with everyone and we are hoping to have it 2 weeks after we get back.

          We are also having a AHR but haven't really started planning it yet..my parents belong to a Clublinks course and suggested having it at the golf course but not too sure....I sorta like the outdoorsy bbq idea myself..but like almost into the evening with torches and a big white tent. I sorta want a pig roast..is that just wrong?

                  We're having our AHR in Burnaby at the Executive Inn Hotel....one week after we get back from Mexico!! It's gonna be a evening Cocktail Reception from 6-10. I think for decorations the hotel has center pieces and I'm just gonna get some balloons in our colours :-) I'll probably check out Micheals as well for some shells, marbles, rocks or something like that. And I ordered some cute fridge magnets with a tropical background and our names and date, for favors. Super cute and cheap from Vista Print.

                  Hope this helps a lil! Have great AHR!

                      We are having the destination wedding on April 15, 2010 in Punta Cana and then the AHR on May 1, 2010.
                      The AHR location at Glen Eagle in Bolton Ontario was actually booked four months before the destination wedding location. We knew the location we wanted for the AHR (great bar) and needed to book it straight away as the date we really wanted (one week later) had already been booked.
                      We are planning on having about 150 people for the AHR so to keep the costs down, we are not having a dinner but rather just the dance. So it will start with a cocktail hour followed by a slide show of the destination wedding and then on to the dancing.
                      For the centerpieces, we are doing the DIY but have bought the candle holders at Liquidation King. Pretty good deal. There were three candle holders in each box for $ 12.00. We did buy slightly larger candle holders for the head table for a little more $$.
                      Still haven't decided on what we will do for a guest book.
                      Not sure about what all needs to be done.
