Long time lurker here, but I finally decided to post because I need help! I have stretched out my wedding planning as long as I possibly can, so it's time to get moving. We are having a small destination wedding (less than 20 people - we are still waiting for the final numbers from the RSVPs, no bridal party, no reception) in Honolulu on New Year's Eve. We currently have our wedding ceremony scheduled at Halekulani and dinner at La Mer. However, we just recently discovered that our $400/PER PERSON! meal at La Mer does not include drinks of any kind. We are looking to schedule the dinner elsewhere, but I have no idea where to start. I'd love to give our guests a view of the water, but it's not a deal breaker if I can't. Any suggestions?
Also, since we're not having a traditional reception following the ceremony, we're planning to purchase NYE tickets to one of the local hotels' celebration. Any suggestions for the best NYE party on Oahu? I realize it's going to be more of a bar type setting, but I'm honestly okay with that. I'd like some really good, fun music so I can celebrate and dance with my closest friends.
Thanks in adavnce for any suggestions! I really appreciate it!
