    There is a great thread on here about websites. I'll look for it. I'll also PM you mine. My FI doesn't want me to post it online. I used weddingannouncer.com. It's free & was just what I needed. I didn't want flash animation, because we have a lot of guest still using dialup. There are fancier websites with more background choices, but I was happy to save the money. The RSVP function isn't as great because you have to issue guest a PIN number. I am not planning to use the website to RSVP.

    We are taking our engagement pictures sunday. I plan on using them to make the STD & send them out sometime in the next month or so. I'm trying to keep everything really low pressure so it won't say "save the date." Instead it will be something like "we are getting married in mexico. If you'd like to join us we'd love to have you there blah blah blah here's the website." I need to work on the wording obviously. I haven't decided on invites. We might send a wedding invite out. Or maybe just the AHR invite. This is just what we are doing though. I think most people on the forum sent out cards that said save the date. I'm probably a bit ridiculous to be uncomfortable using those words. That's just me. I have to use 6 sentences to say something that could be said in 3 words to avoid feeling bossy or something.

    Yes, we have having an AHR. Two actually. I grew up in texas & all my family & a bunch of friends are there. We are going to have some sort of party in texas. I want to keep it fun and casual, like maybe a BBQ. But I'd like to show the video, so I haven't planned that yet. I've lived in North Carolina for 3 years now for grad school & have some great friends here too. So we are having a NC party. A couple we are friends with offered to have it at their house (our place is too small). We are going to show the video on their TV. I'm buying a keg, making salsa, etc. It's going to be a fiesta. We'll probably get a pinata too. I'm really excited about that party because it will be just like any other laid back party with friends.

    OK I'm searching for that website thread.
