@Costa Rica Bride: I hope it’s not against the rules to link you to http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/f/ It’s also a forum and there is a section for planning AHRs!  

We are also thinking of doing a SMALL AHR after our destination wedding to Cancun.  We won’t be doing any of the things that we’ve done at the destination (eg. garter toss, first dance etc).  Others may, sorry I don’t have more information for you!!

In my mind you can do whatever you want! 

We had an AHR two months after the wedding. My parents rented out a clubhouse of a beach community (have a family member who lives there). Her friend is a caterer so she made all the food (my mom bought it). Another of her friends is a pastry chef so she made our cake. My brother is a sommelier so he got all the alcohol for cheap. My mom wanted to hire a DJ but I said no so we just hooked an iPod up to some speakers for music. 

The only weddingy thing we did was cut the cake. Basically we just wanted a low-key party, not really a reception. And it was perfect!

i am with the PPs and also was about to recommend that website http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com for its AHR section!  I got a lot of help there in planning mine. We did a backyard BBQ style of AHR and it turned out great.  We also did a slide show of our wedding pics from Jamaica and showed our wedding ceremony video on a big screen we set up in the backyard.  As for the other stuff, its really up to you and what you can afford. i had the BBQ, other people go all out with renting a venure, DJ and wearing their wedding attire again.
