Inviting DW guests to AHR???

Recommended Posts

We are going to have our AHR almost 4 months later.  We are getting married on 11/11/11 in Jamaica, but want to wait until after the holidays and snow (we live in MN)... We are going to have our sand ceremony at the reception too!  We are inviting EVERYONE!  We have a big family with a lot of nieces, nephews and younger cousins that can't go so it will be a big party!

Hey Ladies,

My fiance and I are also planning on doing an AHR about a month and half after our wedding on May 5, 2011; and we were planning on inviting all of the same people to the wedding to the AHR. Right now, the only thing we know is that it will be an informal brunch, but we haven't finalized the venue and date.

 

Currently we are finalizing the invitations and I was wondering whether it was necessary to include the details on the AHR? With the event details still TBD I was wondering whether it would be okay to send out the regular invitations and then to send out the invites to the AHR after we've gotten married?

 

Have any of you been in the same situation?

I wouldn't bother with all the details for the AHR on the invite unless they were all nailed down at this point. I think it would be fine to maybe just say that you'll be hosting a reception back home, with details to come. If you have a month or specific date set, or even just the town name, that would be helpful -- kind of like a STD for the AHR on the invite.

 

I don't know if I would wait until after you get married to send the actual AHR invite -- a month and a half is a little on the short side. Maybe a few weeks before you leave you can send those out? That would give you time after you get back to count RSVP's, set numbers with vendors if needed, and follow up with people who didn't reply. Just a thought!

I'm definitely inviting everyone - I'll put the AHR reception info on one of the cards for our pocketfold invites for those coming on the cruise, and then just mail out a simple AHR invite for those who are not coming to the wedding (we aren't sending out any invites until after the cruise has to be paid in full, which is 2.5 months before the cruise) I'm going to do it cocktail style as well, but I want to wear my dress again and have the bridal party wear their outfits!

I like the idea of inviting everyone, but one of the reasons we are doing a destination is because our family and friends are all over the country. We'll definitely have to invite all of the people close to out AHR.

We will be inviting everyone! Since everyone that is attending our wedding is close friends (wedding party) and family! :o)  So of course they have to be at our AHR.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
