    This is the experience we had with ours.  Everyone got along so well in the Bahamas - many of them never having met each other - and they were thrilled to see each other again two weeks after the ceremony.

Our friends and family that didn't know each other before the wedding became great friends while spending several days together at the DW. I think they would really like a chance to meet up again and rekindle the new friendships.

      I would definitely invite everyone you invited to the DW.  At the end of the day, if they attended the DW, they can choose not to attend the AHR!

        I'm going to have an open house BBQ and invite everyone - I'm hoping for a "reunion" type feel!

          Thanks for this great post!!!.. It answered a lot of questions I had!!..

           

          Did anyone include on their DW invitation that they would have an AHR?  Or should you keep them totally seperate?

           

          I live in AL, FI lives in GA and since I will be moving to GA once we are married I am thinking we should do an AHR in GA no more than 1 month after we return. Possible our 1 month anniversary since it will be on a Saturday (inviting everyone) and doing dancing, appetizers, drinks, have photos out from the wedding, thumb print tree for everyone to sign and a wedding cake for everyone.

            We are included everything in one mailing the invitation will be for the DW and reception enclosure card will have the AHR info and the reply card will list both events.  I don't want to hurt anyone feeling so we thought that this would be the best way to do it.  that way no one feels excluded.

               Ahh.. that's a good idea!!.. I don't want to make over 200 passport invited though... lol..  We are just inviting our close family and friends to the DW to keep it more personal and simple.. And then invited everyone to the AHR so that they feel included. Because of course we want to able able to see everyone at the AHR.

                Hi ladies!  This is a really helpful thread.  My FI and I are getting married in DR in April 2013. This is causing major stress in my family because it's a lot of money to fly down for some members.  So, we'll be holding a AHR in June 2013 and hoping this appeases everyone. 

                 

                Is the general consensus that you invite everyone on the DW invite to the AHR party??  I was originally thinking we'd do something small and intimate back home but the more I think about it I wonder if we should make this AHR really big?  Did some of you wait to decide how big/small until after you got your DW RSVP's??

                Thanks!

                  Well I caved, I made over 100 passport invitations.. So that no one would feel left out. But I'm sure only close friends and family will actually attend the DW.
