@tygrrlily Yes we are having an AHR nothing big i am in the process of looking for places to have that right now. I want it to be extremely cost effective so i am in the process of trying to fine a nice cheap place outside! On our wedding website it talks about how we will be having an AHR but have no details i never really thought of leaving it out because maybe people would just choose the cheaper route...but now i am wondering if i should of. I would never miss any of my friends/close families weddings but sometimes you forget not everyone feels the same way you do!

 

I also read a post on here about AHR Guest favors....are you planning on doing this? This thought never crossed my mind until i read about it on this site. Of course who ever comes to the DW are getting favors!


@ASAtobe We are getting married Feb 25, 2015 so our deposits are due by June 19th! so its getting close! Everyone is starting to book now but at the same time a lot are dropping out now. I think we will probably have around 20 people most of which are my FI friends and family, I am just thankful my MOH which is also my cousin her and her bf and son are coming.


@BusyBee280 I wish we could afford to pay for everyone to come! i have been debating even just paying for my 1 friend who i know can't afford it...but really we can'y afford it either especially with having an AHR as well. I never thought of people booking there own tickets through there own travel agent...i did wonder though if people would wait to get like "last min deals" but then i need to know how many people are coming so i can make sure we have enough favors and enough places for dinner ext ext..

 

 

We certainly can't afford to just pay for everyone- we just offered them deals like taking care of the flight in exchage for labor for wedding stuff. The friend that is having the most trouble now will be taking care of setuping up the AHR, and video taping our trip to Mexico to show at the AHR. Most of our guests have the reservations taken care of (parents and such) but we have 2 friends we knew before chosing a DW would have troubles coming up with so much money. Win some, lose some I guess

@ SamanthaC OMG, that price is amazing!! I bought mine for $1250 (includes shoes and belt) from Davids Bridal in Buffalo. Does "Pop up wedding shop" sell bridesmaid dresses?

I want to keep costs down for bridesmaid dresses as well, been researching and it's hard to find something I love under $100

@keezy I am not 100% sure i am thinking pretty close to the wedding i am a very short person 5'1 so i need quite a bit off the bottom since i wont have heels or anything either. So i want to make sure there is enough time to get all that done!

@ SamanthaC I'm a little worried as to how much my alterations will be with David`s Bridal. My wedding ceremony will be held in the Garden Gazebo so will be wearing heels
