I know there are alot of threads about formal AHRs but they seem to be from a year or two ago. I wanted to get a fresh idea on what everyone thought of formal AHRs??
Im from the UK and we are travelling to Mexico for our DW (which is an 11 hour flight from here) 37 have booked and im over the moon with that as its such a long journey (and costly!!)
So because the bulk of the people coming are mostly friends, we want to hold a formal AHR for family and other close friends that couldnt come..
We were thinking a sit down meal in the day with family that couldnt come and everyone who could come.. Approx 80 people and then a night party for everyone else with a buffet.. We will also be having welcome drinks and wine on the tables..
Also I wont be having a cake in Mexico as I feel it will get wasted as we will be having dessert in our reception.. So I would prefer to spend the money on one for our home party..
How does everyone feel about formal AHRs? Im wondering how to get introduced as we will already be married and dont just wanna show up in my dress and walk in casually?? (we will all be in wedding attire).. Also are you having a first dance at home?
Any opinions would be greatly appreciated xxx
