    I would love to have your template for the itinerary you made! I am thinking about making something similar to hang on the doors of each guest to welcome them and keep them in the loop :)

      We are doing an AHR for 125 people. We are traveling from 5/16-5/23 and our AHR is 6/15 which is way too close. Big mistake on my part as I feel a bit stressed thinking we have such little time to finish last minute things up for the CT celebration. 90% needs to be done before we leave for DR. Biggest piece of advice....give yourself enough time from the time you return until the AHR!

          Just send me your email, you'd have to have 150 posts to open it on here. I can send the PDF and publisher version.

            We are having an AHR, but I use that term loosley. We are only inviting siblings and parents to the wedding (he has 6 siblings, I have 4...) so we're keeping it very small. That being said, we each have large extended family and friends that want to celebrate. So two months after our DW, we're going to have something here. We found a restaurant (John Barleycorn) that had a really reasonable brunch option - $16 per person. So it's not a real "reception" in that we won't have dancing and whatnot, it will be a lot more casual. More a celebration of the wedding. We'll have our pictures by then, so we'll use their AV equipment to have these going throughout the even for everyone that wasn't there.

              We are doing an At Home Reception aka Party at my parents house in June.   My parents are paying for our wedding in Mexico and my Fiance and I are paying for our AHR.  Ours will also be more casual and a celebration of the wedding.  We will have a taco and nacho bar with other munchies and lots of Mexican drinks.  A good baker friend of mine will be making our wedding cake and other desserts.  I think it would be fun to have a pinata for the kids and I would love to have a photo booth.  We will display some of our wedding photos, but mostly we just want to celebrate with our friends and family.

                  I did see that. I'm not doing that at my wedding, but I'm sure other brides might also be interested though!

                    I just bought mine from justartifacts.com They were $1.68 each for the 100% biodegradable wire free ones. Which I think is cheaper than the groupon deal
