Has anyone ever done the AHR before the destination wedding??

I have never heard of the reception before you get married. That doesn't mean you can't do if its your wedding and you can celebrate it how you want. If you want to have it before so when you get back you can relax then do be it lol. I am having something very casual when I get back. It's going to be a BBQ and no speaches or sit down meal, just a time to share what our day was like with ppl that couldn't be there. So just showing pics video and having a good time. I don't have money for two receptions lol!!!

    Well there are a variety of reasons we would like to do the AHR before, mostly because our parents will not be there. So would like to do a small AHR for our parents and families first, and also give guests who can't attend the option of coming. It won't be a big thing, maybe just a banquet and small ceremony. However I'm not sure what we will say on invitations.. might just do 2

    Put something along the lines of " join us for our AHR on ( date) to help celebrate out upcoming marriage" list details below where it's at, time etc

    We've decided to have ours before so there is nothing left to plan/do after the wedding. It will be a few weeks before we leave and we are calling it a Bon Voyage party. Invites will go out to those who are unable to go on our wedding cruise.

    Forgot to add...we don't know the exact date/location yet, so on the RSVP card under the "unable to attend" option we added a note stating that they can still help us celebrate at our bon voyage party and that invites will be sent in February.

      Thanks kay2015, will definitely think about that. I should probably decide what kind of reception I'm having soon. That's a great idea, bon voyage party is cute!
