I’d give people at least 4 weeks notice about the dinner reservation.  You probably won’t have to send out real invites since it’s informal and it would cost more… you might send e-mails or some type of online invite. 

It’s really up to you when you should have your AHR.  My Fiance and I are having our AHR the 1st Saturday after we return from the honeymoon, but i know some people don’t have theirs till months later.  But since it’s an informal dinner with everyone picking up their own dinner, I would try to have it at least within a month of the wedding.  :o)

We had friends that did a post “reception” after their destination wedding in Jamaica… if you really want to call it that

It was small, maybe 50 people, in some little venue (in dwntwn austin) although I think someone’s backyard would even work, they cooked the food (them and their families) an all Jamaican Cuisine, like 4/5 different things.. more like finger foods or better yet a spread (which they said didn’t cost much)… jerk meatballs and stuff like that. Infact it was almost 10 years ago and I still remember how good those meatballs were.

They had a friend “dj” but now ipod is the “way” to go… did the “first dance” and had a small 1 tier cake for cutting (my and my Fiance are doing the 1 tier and it’s literally costing us 20 bucks! well my friend that’s gifting us)

Other than that we all mingled and enjoyed them and their time together.

I think you could totally do some WAY reasonable, enjoy your friends & loved ones, and bring a little of jamaica to them! 😉
