    Having a destination wedding is your choice, however, you are aware when making this decision that most people will be unable to attend. Knowing this, you should never expect or accept a gift from anyone.

    Having a reception when you get home is just saying, " We really didn't care that you couldn't make it to our wedding, but give us a gift anyway!" 

       You should have a destination wedding if that is what you want and enjoy every minute of your beautiful day. But do not go asking for gifts, which is what you will be doing by having a reception. That is cheap, rude and selfish.

      Hmm, is someone a little bitter today?  If you feel this way don't go to any more receptions.

        Wow.  We actually specified no gifts on our AHR invitation and no one is planning on getting us anything - just a get together to celebrate with everyone in my SIL's backyard.  Loving the random rage though....I suggest you direct it to the appropriate person instead of at the thousands of people you do not know on this forum?

                K so here is my question if your not into the whole DW thing why are you on this site????!!!!!!! and please keep in mind that all of us brides are on here to get ideas and help from other brides who actually like talking to one another, and no where on here are ppl grabbing for money or gifts.


                The whole idea os an AHR is to party it up with fam and friends who cant make it to the actual wedding...and who are you to make any opinions on us or who we are and what we want??!! youve been on here for what 5 posts! SERIOUSLY NEXT TIME TAKE YOUR PILL LOOK IN THE MIRROR AND SAY TO YOUR SELF STOP BEING A B**CH


                for all the other future brides out here that i have talked to and have come to count on....pay no attention to those who are ignorant and have no clue


                   JUST TO LET YOU KNOW WERE TOTALLY ROCKING THE AHR...im wearing my dress and WE ARE GIVING GIFTS not asking for them so..u dont know anything so stay off this site if all your going to do is be nasty.

                Two hands will join together on their special day and look at each other and say I DO on April 14 2012 in Montego Bay Jamaica

                  me thinks that perhaps they (etiquette) are disgruntled guest trying to send a message to a particular bride?  etiquette schmetiquette. seriously. whatever you want to do for your wedding, however you want to word the invitation is up to the couple. GAWD.....rules are so STIFLING
