What to do at AHR?

Recommended Posts

I am sure there are other threads on this but I am meeting with my DJ on tuesday and have to tell him kinda what I want... and I have NO idea! I was jus trying to get an idea of what you girls have done or think is best. I know I am supposed to do what I want and on and on haha. But I wanted to see what you all think

-Anyone do cutting the cake again?

-Or how about the first dance?

-Throwing the garter

-Catching the bouquet

Am I missing anything?

Thanks a bunch, Im just clueless and have no idea what Im doing haha!

Ours was really informal. We had a 3rd ceremony at a chapel and the AHR followed. There was just music, food, and drinks. No special events....hopefully someone else here can help!

I got married Nov 1 in Cancun and my AHR was this past weekend Dec 1st. We had a traditional reception (dj, catering, cake etc.) We did the bride/groom intro, a slideshow of baby and wedding pics. We did cake cutting. No bouquet (because why buy flowers again), or garter toss. We did do traditional first dances. I pretty much treated mine like a wedding reception with no wedding. It turned out great- out AHR was not beachy but we incorporated small things like our last song being kenny Chesney - No shirt no shoes no problems and beer in mexico. Good luck!

I am doing the same thing, kinda. Our AHR will be 2 months after our wedding and we are treating it as a regular reception. We will do the cake cutting, first dance, etc. We will not be doing the bouquet toss or garter toss, just cuz as a personal thing, I don't care for them. Matt does, so we may try to figure out a way to do it w/o making going the traditional route. I dont have any details figured out yet, but I know we will treat it as a regular reception.

We are doing the entire thing, ceremony and all, at our AHR. The biggest reason for this is most people do not know that it is not the Real wedding, but there are SO many of them that wouldn't be able to go to our DW for financial and other reasons that we thought we would just have a Fake one and go all out.

Thanks for all your ideas, you have been really helpful. I am meeting with the DJ in a couple hours so I am hoping that he will have an idea also.

    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.
