we have finally picked a venue! Paliku Gardens at Kualoa Ranch on Oahu, HI. this is somewhat of a destiniation wedding as most of us live in CA, however i was born and raised in HI and my parents still live there.
couple things - my mom has agreed to be my wedding planner, which i'm stoked on since she's retired and lives there and my parents are paying for everything. how do i keep her from taking over, especially with the guest list? also, any advice on vendors?
how do i get my friends to come?? i know most of them don't make a lot of money, which is why we are waiting so long, so we can all save $$ for the trip. i want my friends there, and i don't want this to turn into a party for my parents and their friends.... any advice?
also, when should i send the save the dates? invites? start looking for my dress? booking vendors? any and all advice appreciated!
thank you ladies and gents! 1<3
10-17-14 here we come!!!! so excited!
