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"

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
