    Hello! My fiance and I are starting to plan our wedding and reception. We're not going to have a traditional reception since we're anticipating a small crowd. We're thinking of having a dinner after the ceremony at either the Plantation House or the Sea House. I've looked at both menus online and they look great. Has anyone been to either? My parents own property in Maui and have been to the Sea House many times and love it, but I'm looking for other opinions! Thanks so much for all of the great info and advice.

      Although we haven't had our wedding yet, we are having dinner and the reception at the Five Palms Restaurant in Kihei. They are supposed to have wonderful food, and the wedding coordinator there (Kathryn) is so helpful!

        Do you mean Seawatch? That is where we had our reception and the food was excellent! Can't recommend it enough :)

        You could always do a luau reception dinner instead if you wanted.. Old Lahaina Luau and Feast at Lele in Lahaina were really good too

          I think pretty much every restaurant in Maui will accommodate a wedding party! LOL When I was doing the research, they all seemed to have event planning available.

          Filby, we are having our reception dinner at Five Palms Also! Make sure you review them in a "Wedding Review" right when you get back!

          We were originally going to go to Sarento's, but the wedding party is getting bigger, and bigger, and I don't think their patio is going to be big enough.

          Here are a couple websites I used for research:

            I think we've decided on the Plantation House. We looked at the Five Palms but it was pretty far from where we're staying (30 min +) and thought transportation might be an issue for some of our guests. We're hoping to provide transportation for everyone and that can get pretty expensive!

            We're having a morning ceremony, brunch reception and then we're treating our guests to Old Lahaina Luau that evening. It's going to be a jam packed day but hopefully a great one.

            Thanks for the great advice!
