    I reaaaaally want to have some sort of an after-party but it will just depend on whether or not we can find a good place close by to do it and if I can talk Fiance into it, lol

    Nah… we’re going to go enjoy being married. And sleep! We’re only having a 5 month engagement so it’ll be whirlwind!

    We didn’t have a lot of younger people at our wedding but honestly, we were pretty worn out and just wanted to go home after a while.  I couldn’t imagine staying out all night and partying after my wedding.

    I’m having an afternoon reception that ends at 5pm.. after which we are going out to do all our portraits on the Vegas strip with our bridal party. Then about 10pm everyone is getting back together at a club to party till dawn!

    It would be fun-but I’ve never heard about them until I was on here. I think it would be too much work & there’s nowhere we could really go after- I mean, we could stay at the reception site, or go over to the bar, but I’m sure I’ll be exhausted!

    Fiance and I don’t have sex.. so, after the reception, only one thing will be on my mind 😉

    No after party for us. Our reception is going until 12, and I know im going to be exhausted! Plus i really want to have alone time with my new husband to relax. Im actually really looking forward to our time after the reception.

    I’m thinking we’re going to skip the after-party but then again, we’re planning on having a morning-after brunch so to me that will be the after-party.

    We didn’t want to, because we wanted to be together and talk about the night and stuff, but even if we had planned to, we couldn’t have. We were both SO exhausted, my feet hurt, my dress was heavy, I wanted to take all of those pins out of my hair, we were starving…. I could go on and on. Kuddos to those that can stay standing that long, but there is no way we could have!

    Our reception is finishing at 11pm and we are expecting to leave about 10.45. I’m anticipating that I will be absolutely exhausted and ready to just be with my new husband. I’m sure other people will continue the party back in their hotel rooms, which is great – it can feel like an anticlimax to just go home after a wedding. I’ll see everyone at breakfast the next day!

    We probably will go upstairs and b ask in our newlywed-ness for a little while then head back downstairs for a little nightcap with the guests!

    Fiance already put in his 2 cents with regards to this….he wants us to be alone that night and I couldn’t agree more.  We head off to Canada the next day for a mini honeymoon but that night we are looking forward to room service (every bride I know has said that she was starving after the reception), talking about the wedding, and of course having some much needed alone time together.

    We didn’t but we did end up extending the reception an hour until 1am.  We were exhausted at the end and it was nice to have some time to be alone and rehash our favorite parts of the day.

    Our wedding will go on for quite a while I’d bet..but not all night.  No need for us to have a separate after party.
