I'm from Kailua and now live on the mainland . . . My fiance and I want to get married on O'ahu but are on a pretty tight budget (since parents are not contributing). I'm about to lock in Mid-Pac Country club in Lanikai at $31-$34/per guest (for buffet only, drinks are separate), but I figured I'd get some feedback first. Is it really cheaper to get a venue that doesn't serve food and bring in your own caterer? We'd prefer an outdoor reception, but with those frequent "windward & mauka showers," it might be safer indoors. Should I do more research into another venue & separate catering service or is Mid-Pac giving me a good deal?
