We're planning for our AHR now and its coming up in Feb. and well, my mom is driving me crazy with questions and details, and so I'm looking for some info on what others have done to either answer her questions or calm her down... can someone point me in the right direction, or....give me details on how yours was--like--
Did you wear your dress the entire time/at all, etc?
Did you have your wedding party dress a certain way, sit in a special place (like all together)
Did you do any of the first dances (again)
Did anyone make any toasts, or read any passages, etc.?
Did you have a DJ, photographer, anything else?
I was kind of thinking that it would just be a dinner for everyone with music and fun, but I'm finding out that my mom thinks it should be just as nice as our actual wedding....and she's really putting on the pressure. I'll appreciate any info and feedback that you can provide!!! Seriously, I'd love to hear the details from yours or what you are planning.

So, are you doing first dances, and announcements?
How about seating arrangements--anything special to keep the wedding party together?
Thanks for the help : )

hee hee, that being said, I am planning along the more traditional lines for ours, but it will still be casual and fun. We've booked a small hall, and we're doing just a cold buffet. I am thinking it will start around 7 PM, people will arrive and we will greet them with Champagne and/or Red Stripe beer. The whole thing will be themed Jamaican with beachy favours on the tables, tropical flowers and decorations. I will wear my dress because I want to! The bridesmaids can wear their dresses if they want to, I will ask them and see what they prefer. We rented DJ equipment and will have a friend run it, and the plan is to just dance and have fun. Oh yeah, we will show a DVD of the wedding and a wedding slideshow of photos at some point in the evening as well. Still going to work out all the "whens" and "hows".
But seriously, do whatever YOU want!!
