A fruit palm tree is a really cute idea for a reception following a beach destination wedding. you can buy a kit that has a stand and directions, just add fruit!
www.smartyhadaparty.com has really nice inexpensive plates, napkins, cups, and lots more and it's cute stuff too.
www.save-on-crafts.com has great decorating ideas.
www.quickcandles.com has bulk candles for a good price
www.dollartree.com has nice vases for $1 of course
Our splurge was on a steel drum band to bring the island feel to our reception.

I would definately like to do a backyard sort of BBQ idea. Unforunately our yard is quite small, and our families don't live here. We might end up moving it to a park where there is more room.
Same idea though! I like the idea of the slide show.

We are DEFINITELY sending out an Evite for our AHR. Its free, quick and easy! Everybody has an email address these days so why waste time asking everyone for their home address and spend hours doing mail out invitations and spend money on stamps! Plus, most people wont rsvp on time anyways and you will still have to ask them if they're coming or not.
Why go through that?! Evite will send out reminders for those who haven't responded and you literally wont have to touch the invitations again since it will send you a count of those who have rsvp'ed or not. AWESOME!! You would have had your wedding already so why waste money on invitations

Great ideas! I am actually lucky enough to have 2 AHR's! One in PA where I grew up (my fiance's family is in VA so they will go to the PA AHR) and one in CT where we live. The one in PA is going to be in my mom's backyard with tents and tables/chairs. We will have a beach theme to incorporate our wedding that will take place in St. Thomas. The one in CT will probably be at one of the beaches, possibly renting a pavilion or a beach house for the weekend. So excited!!
