Some planning help...referrals, suggestions please

Hi ladies!  I really, really, wanted to get some big checks done before my 6 month mark so I wouldn't start stressing, but I was way too swamped at work. I would still like to cram in as much as possible this weekend so I can feel a little better about everything. Here is what I'm looking for.  I know you guys are the best and thought you might help get me back on track :)

-  Entertainment - I'd love someone to play the ukulele when I'm walking down the aisle.  Also, I would like a live band with a few hula dancers.  I will probably do a hula and maybe my bro's & friends since we used to dance.
-  Videographer - not looking for the full package, and don't really have the budget for it.  Mainly for the ceremony since we want to show it at our reception in Connecticut.  There are a lot of older relatives that aren't able to make the trip.

-  Reception activities - I'd love to hear some budget friendly ideas.  I've heard photo booths and lei making.  I'd like to have a little something going on while we're taking our pics.  I'm having shaved ice as well :).

Thanks so much Smile

    Hi Congrats on your engagement!
    Lanikuhonua is so beautiful you'll love it!
    Hmm for activities we did a photobooth and people loved loved loved it! We also had a book for people to place a picture of themselves from the photobooth into and write a message we loved reading it after the wedding and seeing all the funny pics! The shaved ice idea sounds great too! I think your idea of lei making is also really cool too. Honestly I think that's more than enough activities especially if you're gonna have appetizers and drinks as well the guests will be fine while you take pics.
    Best of luck !
