    Our at home reception is going to be very casual at our home, we have a huge pool and thought sinces its going to be in the middle of summer our guest can just bring thier swim suits and relax.  However, i would like to know how many people would be coming to know how much food, drinks, tables, chairs, etc to have.  Do you usually have them RSVP for an at home reception?  If so would i have to make different invitaions for that or have that info somewhere on our invitaions and have them RSVP then?

      I think its always good to get a head count for any event you may plan, just so you have a general idea of who's coming... You want to make sure you can accomodate all of the guests. Maybe since its like a casual get together/pool party type thing....You can send out a Evite? What can be more casual than that? or you can make a fun and INEXPENISIVE invitation ( not sure how crafty you are). I think it should be seperate from the Wedding invites...

        I sent out STD for the wedding and just casually mentioned about the AHR for those that could not attend. I plan on sending out a different invite for the AHR and are asking they phone me with their RSVP.  I will be making my AHR invites thru Vista Print, so I would be only paying for the shipping!

          Sm8022,

           

          I agree with MysTea, you definitely need some type of head count. Do you have a wedding website? They can RSVP there for the AHR as well. Evite sounds good too!

            I sent out email invites to our AHR and asked people to email or call to RSVP.   Worked well for us!

              My plan is to order postcards (pre-printed with my address) and envelopes from Vistaprint where the back has a place to enter RSVP info.  So I would mail the postcard in the envelope and have postage on the postcard already. (Postcards will be free from Vistaprint with $4.99 for white envelopes but will have to pay S/H, postcard postage is $0.28 and the envelope mailing will be $0.44 = so ~$0.80-$1.00 per household)
