If we were doing an AHR, I'd have some sort of guest book or something - it's part of the wedding/celebration, and you can do one very easily. You can do a shutterfly photo book of pics from the mexico wedding, and have space for folks to sign, or get one of your fave photos from Mexico matted, and have folks sign the mat.

We are doing a very informal picnic/BBQ at a park - renting a shelter, etc......just not sure what to do.....besides this.....
mstigger- I went through this twice my MIL wanted a reception in my husband's home state of NJ and My parents wanted one in MO. I was totally hands off and they kept trying to drag me in... So I feel your pain. And I know with being you MIL it is the tread lightly situation.
As far as "registering" for Lowes or another hardware store, I had put on our wedding website that we have tons of Honey To Do projects going on and asked for money or Home Depot gift cards if they wanted to get us something. Also you can register on Amazon.com for those things too.
For invites we took the photos from the actual wedding and made postcard to send people and had them RSVP by email or phone. We also let people know on the post card that it was informal. If you want you can shoot me a PM and I will look for the PDF to show you the post card for our reception.
Last but not least Good Luck!
