Reception party back home?

Recommended Posts

We are having an AHR as well. I am actually looking forward to it. It will basically be a big party. I didnt want to deal with details, so the only planning I had to do was decide on buffet menu, choose flowers and a DJ. We will also have a slideshow of our wedding pics in Cabo. It will be 1 month after my wedding in Cabo

yes, my parents...more my mom insisted on it and i said okay b/c she wouldn't have bought into the DW without having an AHR. We live in Chicago and my parents live in St. Louis, so it's going to be there. I said that's fine but they have to plan it and do all of the coordinating. I'm thinking I'll use it as an excuse to wear my wedding dress again! :)

We're doing one too....

Like most of you, I'm really not looking forward to it....I feel like a jerk because its important to my parents and Fiance, but our wedding is in November in Mexico, and right now, I'm worrying about the menu choices, guest lists and invites for this AHR in February. I feel like I'd just like to have one thing (our wedding!!!) to focus on : )


We're planning for around 150-200 (of mostly my parents friends and family). We are planning on a DJ and are going to have it on 2/16, so we're making it a valentine's theme to try and keep it informal.


I like the idea of the slide show (did you all feel as though your guests enjoyed this and didn't feel "left out"). Also, I'm still kicking around the idea of whether a photographer is necessary. Did you have one at your event?


And, lastly, how many of you wore your dress again--at least some of the time?

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
