At Home Reception - Decorating Ideas

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies,

 

Have any of you had an at home reception or are planning one?

 

We have rented a hall for a couple of months after our wedding (it will be the dead of winter in February in Northern Alberta when we get back from Jamaica, so it's better to wait until April for a party! Trust me... wink.gif ) Anyway, we want to show the DVD of our wedding, do a photo slide show, have a DJ and dance the night away!! We'll have a cold buffet, a chocolate fountain, and favours for the guests as well. I anticipate about 100 people.

 

Does anyone have any ideas for decorating with the beach theme? I would love to see pics of your AHR or any ideas you have! Thanks so much!

we are getting married in Mexico. so our AHR venue said they could do a signature drink such as a margarita and stock mexican beer. Also, doing mexican style food. As for decorating, doing something like this...

Hi Janelle, I'm just down in Edmonton... we're practically neighbours!

 

I googled "Jamaican themed party" and lots of cool stuff came up. I think the music will be your biggest bonus, the live music scene seems to be pretty amazing up there in GP, you might even find a band to play! The food would be pretty doable too, coconut shrimp and jerk chicken...

 

For decorations, you could just get tons of those big palm-type leaves that florist use for greenery, that would look cool. You could do lots with the bright carribean colours too.

 

I think it would be super cool to extend the whole Jamaica trip into the AHR, especially in the middle of a Northern Alberta winter. Perfect!

 

Happy planning,

 

Nancy

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
