AHR... in 2 places...how do we do this?
Posted 07 September 2009 - 09:46 PM
We told our parents and they had a different opinion. They both wanted to do something.... To make it worse they lives in separate states so that means 2, yes 2 AHR to avoid the family having to travel to separate states.
How am I going to do this?
Do we include this information in our main wedding invites?
or do I send out separate AHR invites to each of the groups?
I do not think that either even will be very fancy, more of a casual get together... but still there are 2!
So any advice from brides that have been in this situation? Or anyone that has some great planning advice on this?
Thanks for all your help!

i have a situation where my fmil wants to invite alot of friends that she knows from her building and the neighborhood but doesnt feel that close to invite them to the wedding since my fi doesnt know them..so we are having a seperate at home party, when we come back so we can show them pics of the actual wedding and just have a casual celebration his mom can feel like she didnt miss out either..maybe something in her house and we are only going to mention it to her friends.

So we did an "almost married" themed reception last weekend back home in CT for all the people who cant come to our DW this January, and even for people who can.
Then when we get back we are having an AHR here in Utah for everyone else.
It will all work out! keep us posted!

I was thinking about taking one of the pictures from the wedding and put it on a photo announcement card then include a separate stationary card with the AHR information on it. What do you guys think about that?

I know some people say its rude to invite people to the receptions who weren't invited to the wedding but I don't see a problem with this. I've been invited to a reception before where the they had a tiny intimate wedding with just family and I didn't mind not being invited to the real thing. Besides, the receptions are more for your parents so they should get to invite whoever they want (assuming they're paying). I just can't justify inviting 200 people (spending so much money on invites and postage) knowing full well they won't come to Jamaica just so they can "rightfully" be invited to the AHR.
I do know a lot of brides include an option for the AHR on their wedding RSVP so that might work too. Just have an option for both so they can indicate which one they'll be attending. This would certainly be cheaper as far as the cost of invites and postage. IF it's informal you could always send out e-invites for the AHRs.... You really have lots of options and it's totally up to you.
On a side note - ALL guests invited to the wedding were invited to the AHR.
