    I just met with our coordinator for our AHR Tuesday night to confirm menu selection.  We're doing a 2 piece AHR we're doing an afternoon cocktail reception with just hor'dourves for everyone and then whoever wants to is invited back to our house afterwards.  The AHR is mostly informal, it's just mingling a chance for people to see us, watch our wedding video, and see the pics....which I still don't have yet!!! EEK I hope I get them soon so I can actually do everything I was planning with them since they are the main focal point of the AHR.  I also need to build our DIY photobooth this weekend.

      I bet it's a whole lot cheaper and less stress which seems nice to me! It was our parents who really wanted a formal reception however since it was only us two for the DW. It is there wedding gift to us. i really am looking forward to seeing all my family and friends to celebrate, but phew it's a lot of work! Just my luck, my photog sent a sneak peek last night and we should have all our photos by tonight! :)

        A DIY photobooth sounds so fun! I bet your guests will love that! Are you showing the video back at your house?

          You will have so much fun seeing family.  We are looking forward as well seeing family and friends who were unable to make it.  Our guests who were able to come to Mexico are excited to share stories with those who were unable to come :) Are you doing a slideshow or how are you going to show your pictures?

                  Has anyone ran into people making comments about "isn't your wedding over??? Why are you having another reception" I had no bad comments about having a wedding in Mexico but now that people have received our invitation to our bbq AHR they are making snid remarks.  Makes me second guess having a AHR

                    Hey deanna,

                    Just wondering when are you planning to show your slideshow. I am finalizing the timeline and trying to determine when is the best time to do this.

                    Thanks!

                    J
