    As I am planning my AHR (really early days of it) I was wondering how you all have done it/are doing it.

    New colors or same ones? My wedding is at the Sun Valley Resort in Idaho (kind of like Aspen-type town) in December, and then my AHR will be back in Seattle in January.

    My colors are dark purple and silver...

      Same, that way you can reuse the things you buy for the wedding at the AHR.

        I vote for the same colors...at least that's what we are doing. I think the theme of everything kind of matching just ties in together nicely and like Cindy said, you can re-use stuff form the DW then as well.

          Same colors. It makes the AHR seem like a continuation of the wedding and you can re-use your decorations.

            Personally, I'm doing different colors. Here's why...
            I'm getting married in DR so my colors are tropical (turquoise and fuschia)
            My AHR will be in my parents back yard in September and I just feel like the new colors I choose would look better in that setting (lime green, black, and white)
            I really think it all depends on the setting. Just my 2 cents. Good luck deciding.

              I'm going to do different colors too. Tropical colors (orange and fuchsia) in Mexico for the wedding and I don't know what yet for the AHR. It will be in my parents backyard so I don't think they have to be the same.

                I would do the same. It is always good to be able to re-use what you have and save money. good luck!

                  There are pros' and cons of both.
                  Pro- you probably love these colors so why not reuse them. You can use the stuff over gain and save money.

                  Con's pictures will all be with the same colors, your colors aren't really tropical like.. very pretty, but not really summer like... what you could do is use a lighter purple along with a darker purple .. That could make it more summer like : ).. Then you could reuse some things.

                    I am undecided on this also. We are getting married in Turks & Caicos and I had thought about bringing the caribbean theme to the AHR. I guess we need to figure out a place for the AHR before I can decide.

                      Same. Re-use decorations and save $
