    hello!! Anyone else doing an at-home-reception? my wedding is in Mexico in January 2011, and it is just immediate family and friends that are attending (around 10-12 people). Upon our return, we are having a reception to invite basically everyone else (about 140 invites).

    Should I just send an invitation out that is typical of a regular wedding?? Should it be sent out earlier than the normal invitation, and sort of state we're getting married in mexico? At this point it seems STDs are just going to be silly- since I am 8 months away.

    Any suggestions are welcome :)

      There is an entire subforum dedicated to "at home receptions" - AHR. You can probably find all the answers to your questions if you search within that subforum.

        I used formal wedding invitations for my AHR and used the following wording:

        "Mr. & Mrs. _________ are pleased to announce the marriage of their daughter ________ to _______ on the second of July two thousand and ten in Cancun, Mexico.

        The pleasure of your company is requested at a reception celebrating their marriage on the _________ of July two thousand and ten at seven o'clock in the evening
        Houston, Texas"

          we are doing the exact same thing. Small wedding in Antigua and huge reception back at home, when we return. Great idea combining on the invitation.
