I love this idea and it sounds like it will be a lot of fun. I think some people have called them "Bon Voyage" parties

I agree- Bon Voyage party is perfect.

Interesting. I also had a negative experience with the knot's forum. Ladies on there were very harsh and judgmental. I thought it was just me (although I knew better).

    We still called it a reception and just stated it was a celebration for those who couldn't join us in Jamaica. We decided on a food truck and photo booth and make it more casual-- and FUN!


    Sounds great

    This all sounds great! I am actually doing this too and wasn't sure how people would take it! 

     

    @seka21 @1BeachBride - Did you send STD's out to people only invited to your AHR and not your DW? When did you do that?


    me and the fiance + 61 guests + 1 week in Cabo while getting married = 1 happy girl B)

    @cassie06 I haven't gotten married yet or to this point quite yet. I was planning to do an AHR but we have about 50 people traveling for the wedding (more than we expected). Most of our close friends, parents, and a few family members will be there. So we are debating about doing the big AHR we initially planned.

    We will probably just do a family BBQ in our yard so our families can celebrate and mesh after we return. We will not do STDs but will send announcements with a invite to the BBQ celebration. They will only be sent to family (even the ones who attended).

    This is a GREAT idea, I'm going to talking to my SO about this.
