    Hi everyone I need help with wording some invitations, we're going to have an AHR before we go on our DW, but now here's where I'm lost. I wont be having a bridal shower because I don't want people to think I just want gifts and gifts when they are already spending money to go to our DW. One of my bridesmaids said this AHR should be called a couples shower but not everyone invited to the AHR was invited to the DW so I don't think it should be called a shower. Because we are doing this before our DW, how can I word the invitations?? Any suggestions would be appreciated. thank you!

    Hello!

    This has come up before but it's been awhile. I personally wouldn't call it a shower as I agree I wouldn't invite people to a shower I didn't invite to the wedding.

    I'm also not sure id call it a reception as it's before the wedding.

    I remember people calling it a 'send off' to Mexico or whatever destination.

    I'll try to search the thread. Stay tuned. Hopefully someone who remembers the thread will jump in.

    Congrats on your upcoming wedding!

     

    I don't remember the thread that @calgarybride2015 was speaking about but if anyone can help with it, she definitely can!

     

    We had an AHR but it was 2 weeks after we arrived home so not the same situation. We just worded ours as a "reception to celebrate their marriage" but again that won't work in your case. I like the idea of a "send off" for your wedding, or you could word it as a "reception to celebrate their upcoming wedding". What about calling it a Jack & Jill rather than a shower? Definitely a tough one. I don't know if any of these will work for you.

     

    Good luck!

    I can't find the thread now, but if you search 'AHR before wedding' you will find a lot of threads.

     

    From a quick glance I found these terms used

    - send off party

    - bon voyage party

    - kick off party
