How long after the DW should the AHR be?

Recommended Posts

man oh man i read this thread too late! We will get home from Jamaica on the 16th and our AHR is the 19th. It is catered so they do alot and the venue does not need much decoration at all. My only concern is the pics for the slideshow. I hope we can get them together in time!

We are coming home from Mexico June 30th and having our AHR July 27th. I think a month is a good amount of time. You don't want to drag it out too long.

We got married in May and I was going to plan a reception when I came home, but it was the summertime and everyone would be away. Plus, I felt very overwhelemed after I came home. My mother passed while I was engaged( I think that's why I was overhwlemed).  Now my mother-in-law(who is visiting from greece) just found out she has cancer. She will be staying in the states for treament.  I was thinking of having it in december(when treatment will be completed) so she could attend(she didnt go to mexcio).  After reading how people had theirs about 2-3 months after, I feel weird having it. Everyone who will be invited knows all about the both mom's situations.  My husband doesnt want to have one, thinking it's too late. My maid of honor said I should, a bridesmaid said I should have had it when we came back.  I seriously could not plan another event when I returned.  I really want to have one(and wear my dress again!).  Just wondering what people thought....

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
