    Where is everyone having their reception at? I hear alot of people have it at the Seawatch. I was wondering about Spago. I need some opinions on this matter. Please help.

      I haven't been to the Spago in Maui, so I don't have any insight for you.

      For our reception, we're taking everyone to Old Lahaina Luau. So, my reception is pretty easy.

        Azhuskergirl....Do you plan on covering the cost for everyone? That sounds like a really good idea. I have about 28 people coming but I dont want to spend the money on dinner for everyone like I had planned at the Pineapple Grill.

          We got a group rate (which is about $90 plus tax). We figured rather than the site fee, the entertainment, food & alcohol it'd probably come to about that per person anyway, so why not just do the luau. Plus, everyone goes to a luau when they are in Maui. The guests also get a flower lei when entering. It makes sense for us. We're bringing our photographer back to shoot a couple of hours at the reception (we're getting married in the am), so we have to pay for their entrance, too, but they get a local discount. I can get you my contact's name if you're interested.

          But to answer your question....yes, we're paying.

            Oh Ok..thanks! I talked it over with my WC and since our wedding starts at 4:30 and the luau begins at 5:30 we would be cutting it close so we decided to keep our reservation for the Pineapple Grill and the invite our guests to join us the next day at the Luau.

              that makes sense. We're getting married in the morning, so it worked out perfectly for us.

              I keep hearing about the Pineapple Grill.....now I want to check it out!

                Pineapple Grill sounds interesting.. we will have to check it out!

                We are having our reception at the Seawatch, and hosting a luau for our guests the next evening at the Old Lahaina Luau.. we wanted to do both for our guests but hopefully our numbers don't start to skyrocket otherwise it will be tres moolah!

                  Hi! We are planning on going with Mulligan's on the Blue which is real close to Seawatch. Our coordinator said you can actually see them from one another and Mulligan's also has a great view. Our current plans are to have the ceremony at Seawatch and then go over to Mulligan's. At Mulligan's you can go much later than the typical 10 pm. Only catch is that those under 21 must still vacate the property at 10 pm so I'm thinking of finding a nanny or sitter service for any children if us or our parents are staying at a condo (I have a bachelor's in child development and so my mind immediately went to how we need to provide something for the parents who want to stay later but brought their young kids!). I have the Maui Revealed book and Mulligan's received an Ono (or Recommended) stamp through them. The prices also look more affordable than Seawatch without sacrificing quality.

                    Ok Ladies I need your help...

                    Originally we were to have our reception the Pineapple Grill but we can't afford to pay for everyone (25 guests) so we decided to have it at the Old Lahaina Lu`au. Our WC was able to move the time of our wedding up 30 minutes early that we can all make it to the luau by 5:30. How do I tell my guests that they have to pay?

                      That's a tough one! If you are close with your guests I am sure they wouldn't mind. I'm gathering you should include this in the wedding info- invitation insert or wedding webpage. I would word it "if you would like to join us for our dinner reception...".
