where to have AHR

Recommended Posts

So I am originally from St. Louis and almost all of my family still lives there. My FI is from Chicago and all of his family live there. We will both be done with grad school in May and don't know where we will get jobs or will be living. So I'm not really sure where we would have the AHR.

He's not very close with about half of his extended family, but I don't want to exclude anyone. I'm toying with not even having an AHR. Any thoughts?

I dont know either area well, but it seems you could do cheaper in St Louis. I suppose if you found somewhere 1/2 way you could do a luncheon and ppl would not have to get hotel rooms?

My FI and I have lived in LA for nearly 20 years, parents in different states on the east coast. We thought we had a great idea of having a destination wedding, and then the AHR came up. Mom wants it on the east coast, but thinks we should have a second in LA for our friends here. Anyone else doing 2 receptions.

Hi! Just a quick question, are you having a big destination wedding? Or keeping it small and then having a big at home reception afterward?  My fiance and I are sending out the save the dates this week for our April wedding.  We expect approx 75-100 friends and family to attend our wedding in the Dominican Republic but still want an AHR in NJ in June for close family and friends who aren't able to attend (obviously we don't know who they are yet because we're sending save the dates out this week).  Just curious if you all are doing something similar.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
