Do you Send AHR info with the STD?

Recommended Posts

Hello All!

 

I am just curious, and I am not sure if it has been covered under the AHR... But if I am sending out save the dates to everyone, even to the people who will not probably attend... Is it proper etiquette to include info about the AHR with the STD so they don't feel like they are inclined to come?  Then this way they know they can still celebrate with me a couple of months after i return, and then they won't feel so bad declining??

My fiance and I plan to have the STD mention the wedding place (resort and location), wedding date, the AHR date, and the website.  The website will be update with AHR info as it becomes available (venue, times...) 

 

I too wanted people to know there would be a way to celebrate with us back home in case that influenced their decision to spend the extra money to travel to Mexico.

 

I don't know if there is a protocol to how this should be done, but this makes the most sense to my fiance and myself.

I agree completely. I'm having a hard time even wanting to invite everyone to the DW, we want it small which is why we switched(we were up over 225 for @ home wedding). Darn etiquette!

I am thinking ours will say something like "At home celebration to follow, date to be determined"

because we want to send the info to guests asap so they can start saving and making travel plans.

I like this idea, and wording :)  I like the thought of using celebration over reception, since mine will be very casual.

 

Thank you so much for the imput ladies

I"m not mentioning our AHR. I would rather people attend the DW. The AHR will only be cocktails and cake. Some people know we will also be having an AHR, but I figure for most it won't be any easier to attend the AHR.

clgriffi7 , I agree with your response as that is what we did.  We sent the STD magnet with the wedding date as well as the AHR date so they could save both of them.  We sent one to everyone who will receive an invitation also and don't expect many to travel to Jamaica for the wedding which is fine with me.  This way though, they don't feel left out and are still being asked to save the date for our reception which is only one week after we return from Jamaica.  The magnet directed them to the website with all of the wedding as well as AHR information on it.

Dear Beloved Friends and Family,

 

Please join us in celebrating our big day at the Aventura Cove and Spa, in Riviera Maya, Mexico on Friday, February 18th, 2011. We have reserved a block of rooms and have negotiated a group rate. The resort has provided us with a special website where our guests can book their stay. You can find this link on the "book your trip" page located on our website, www.DrewKadow.com. For those attending our Mexican Ceremony, all of the information you could ever want to know about us and our wedding is available for you on the website.

 

For those of you who will not be able to make it to our wedding in Mexico, we hope you can celebrate with us after our return. We will be hosting a lovely summer reception party back home in mid June, 2011. A formal invite will follow.

 

You may RSVP on our website at your convenience.

We sent our STDs 2 years in advance as Australia is a really long flight from the UK and guests will need time to save up. When we sent them out, we didn't yet have a date or venue for our AHR, but we put a silly poem on the STD saying that there was no obligation to come because we'd be having a party on our return. I think we'll put invitations to the AHR in with our full inviations around 6 months before the DW and then send AHR invitations to those who have declined the DW and those who would only ever have been invited to the AHR (work colleagues etc) a couple of months before the AHR.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
