Time limit of AHR

Recommended Posts

Hello Fellow DW brides, My fiance and I are having a destination wedding in Key West, FL in March of 2013. Its going to be closest family and friends. We are planning to have an AHR when we return to Michigan. We have heard to do it sooner rather than later but my FI parents live in Florida and Tennessee so we would like to give them a rest between traveling for the ceremony and traveling for the reception. How long is too long to wait for the reception. Would July still be ok?

We got married on May 8 and our AHR was May 26 (Memorial Day weekend). Pros to this, we got all wedding events finished by the end of the month and it was a huge relief to be finished. But we were also making sure final deposits were in as we were traveling to our honeymoon and when we got back. We did a cookout reception. They wore casual clothes and we wore our wedding clothes the whole time (wasn't planned that way) but people had a great time.

 

I say have it closer rather than farther away from the time. By that time you will just want to be married and enjoy your life and not want to worry about accomadating others.

Sooner rather then later is probably best. We will be having two (one in his hometown and one in mine...they are 8 hours apart, and that was a big reason we choose to have a destination wedding), both will be very casual. I'd say 4-6 months out would be the maximum wait period, anything longer and it would seem a little off...but I don't know what the etiquete actually is.

Does anyone have an idea of how long it takes to get back wedding pictures? We were hoping to have the AHR far enough after to be able to display our pictures for those who didn't make the trip.

It depends on your photographer, our photographer said our photos would be ready before we leave the Dominican republic.

We had our AHR a week after our wedding. We didn't have any of our pro pictures to show at the reception, but we made a slideshow of some non pro pictures to show our guests during dinner. I'd say have the AHR sooner rather than later. I can't tell you how relieved we were that we were finally back to normal and don't have to deal with our wedding anymore!

    • Hello, I am getting married after 2 months. I and my fiancee were searching for a beautiful spot for our pre-wedding photoshoot. And finally, we have selected Algonquin Park. We have decided to do some adventurous activities there. In the video, we would like to show our moments of trying adventures together. Especially, hiking and canoeing. It would be really fun. We have found a suitable trail for hiking in Algonquin Park. Had anyone tried hiking there? What would be the estimated amount for it? Please do share it here. Thanks!
    • Anybody getting married at the fives beach hotel in playa del carmen in 2020? I'd like to connect with others as we are experiencing some issues and misinformation with the karisma transition. Hoping we can all help each other!
    • Pronovias Pria Wedding Dress. Sweetheart neckline with beautiful soft lace detailing throughout. Low lace back with button detailing. This dress falls beautifully on your silhouette and is so comfortable to wear. Bought a size 16 for my big hips, but tailored it to fit more like a 12-14 (in street clothes I'm a size 10). If you're looking for a destination wedding dress that won't make you sweat all night, this one is for you! I absolutely loved this dress and will miss never wearing it again.  Alterations: Ribbon empire bow on belt at waist was removed and replaced with a sparkly applique. Train was removed. More pictures are available. Paid $1400 Cdn, asking for $500 - it's in good shape (looks like new with no markings!) and has already been professionally cleaned. 
    • My daughter is getting married in Punta Cana on May 23rd, 2020. The hotel is charging a fortune for centerpieces that I can make it easily. I need a contact of wholesale florist please. To buy directly. If anyone could help I appreciate
