help! Need a venue for 50 guests!

Recommended Posts

We're getting married on October 17, 2009 and expect to have around 50 guests for the ceremony and reception. My first choice was the Olowalu Estate but they are booked unfortunately.

 

Does anyone have any recommendations? We've never been to Maui so I'm completely relying on the internet and photos.

 

I know the resorts can accommodate that many people but theirs costs are soo high!

 

Thanks everyone!

I don't know if you are really attached to getting married on a Saturday but if not - did you try to see if they were available on the day before or after ?

so I take it you would like to get married on the beach and then have a reception to follow?

 

here is a website that will walk you through the permit process. Permit for Beach Wedding — Department of Land and Natural Resources

 

this might work... http://www.seawatchrestaurant.com/

 

if you use the search function on the top menu bar and enter maui wedding or maui reception you will find tons of info...

 

good luck

Um.....I wanted the Seawatch (Makena), but it wasn't avail for my date. I went to the Five Palms Grill (Kihei). It was amazing. They have a grassy knoll with the ocean within spittin distance which is available for the ceremony. The GM is Shawn (my hubby's namesake) and bended over backwards to accomodate.

 

I'd be happy to refer my WP Lisa with Enchanted Weddings of Maui. Enchanted Weddings of Maui - Welcome!

 

Good luck....and happy planning.

We had our reception at the Seawatch, and we were thrilled with it. We found their prices were more reasonable than a lot of the resorts too, but with very similar views. Here's a link to my review if you want any more info: http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t33306. Good luck! You can't really go wrong wherever you choose in Maui!

Congrats on your upcoming wedding! Maui will make for a beautiful backdrop for your wedding. We went there for our honeymoon 4yrs ago and loved every minute of it. We'll be there again in March and can harldy wait for a few days of vacation and to scout out new wedding photo locations! I'm sure you'll find lots of great ideas on the forum, but I'll try to think of a few places to help you out. I'll be in touch soon!

Hey! We are getting married in Mau October 14th, 2009! Only three days away from each other. Nice.

 

Orginally, we wanted a public beach, but now they have an ordinance where some beaches have restrictions on the number of people that can converge. We found a private estate called Kalaeokai'a which is a private estate on West Maui. The fee was $1000 for using the grounds. Our wedding coordinator, Lori (Scott) Lawrence with Tropical Maui Weddings, said that renting out part of their estate helps the family keep their ocean front land. It looks beautiful. You can find pictures of the estate here: http://tmaui.info/

 

The other private estates near Kihei were way out of our price range for a small wedding of 25 people ($2500 to $5000), so we were extremely happy with our find. Now, we can have a private beach for our photos, and we will be able to bring our own champagne for the guest, since it is not considered a private beach.

 

It is a 45 minute drive North of Kihei, but the drive was worth it to us!

My FI's cousin is getting married at the Plantation in June and the food cost is reasonable at just under $30 per person.

    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
