Starting to plan Hawaii Destination Wedding - few questions!
Hello all! This forum has been so helpful reading through everyone's thoughts and suggestions. I had a handful of questions if you all don't mind sharing your thoughts!
We are looking to keep our wedding low on budget, paying for our guests hotel rooms so that will take a big chunk. We plan on having 20-25 total (including us). I'd like to have the ceremony and reception (including food) to be around $5k.
1) Where did you all have your ceremony/reception/accommodations (rooms)? I am realizing it is pretty hard to find a venue that can host all 3, unless you want a hefty price tag. Right now I am looking at staying at Hotel Anew, ceremony still TBD, and dinner at Tiki's (casual, private dining, no need for a big reception).
2) Wedding planner recommendations? I'm looking for someone who won't charge an arm and a leg for their services. Ideally, I'd love to tell someone "I have $5k to spend on ceremony & reception, what can you do"
3) Also looking at Paradise Cove ... do they offer discounts to the Lu'au for groups or if you have your wedding there?
This is just the surface of all the questions I have, but I thought I'd start here. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!
