We held our At Home Reception about 6 weeks after our Destination Wedding. From the beginning we knew that we would host an At Home Reception as we had several family members that were unable to attend our Destination Wedding. We sent out the AHR invites with the DW invites using a pocket fold invitation, both events were included on an RSVP card. We sent out 90 invites.
We used HDC as our photographer in Punta Cana, so we had all our wedding photos on a disc before we left the Dominican republic. So upon our arrival home we sent out reminder cards about our AHR using our wedding photos.
We had a Champagne Brunch on a Saturday at a local Reception Hall. We purchased our own chair covers and sashes. And I had family members set-up 3 hours before.
We also made our own centerpieces made up with shells and floating candles
We had many traditional elements as you would have at an wedding reception, Wedding cake, grooms cake, Bouquet toss, photographer, DJ and First Dances.
We opted for a limited bar: Champagne, Wine, Beer, Blushing Bride Mimosa and Mama-Juana. We brought the Mama Juana Back with us for the DR. We ordered free business cards from vista print to inform guest about the mamajuana
For our favors we gave out 4X6 photos from the DW, we had 7 different options for our guests to choose from
We played the ceremony video, which was about 30 minutes during the AHR
And here are some other fun shots from the AHR
