Unique reception venues in/near Honolulu

Recommended Posts

We're having our ceremony at the Hilton Hawaiian Village's Ocean Crystal Chapel at 4pm, and most of our 30 or so guests will be staying there as well. I'm looking for a reception venue nearby, or within an hour or so (I guess we could rent a big trolley or something for transportation, but ideally the location would be as close to the Hawaiian Village as possible).


I never felt I wanted one of those big ballroom receptions, but rather see myself in a really funky bar or lounge, cafe, restaurant, etc that's been set up with tables and dance floor and everything. I'm really open for any ideas, though not willing to spend an arm and a leg. Outside could work, but I'm worried it's rather chilly at night in March?


If anyone has seen or heard of something unique, or has or is planning to do so, please advise!!!

I can't think of anything off the top of my head. But I can tell you that you shouldn't shy away from outside...it won't be any cooler in March than it is in July. My parents live there so I frequent the island often. If a good spot comes to mind I'll let you know!

all my suggestions were taken from other Oahu brides from this forum but i'll say them anyway :P

* outdoor luau - paradise cove or the polynesian cultural centre

* tiki's grill & bar - you should look at their private events page. i like the coconut club one

Tiki's Grill & Bar

* i REALLY loved Aaron's Atop the Ala Moana but apparently it has closed down this past march! sad.gif im hoping someone will open it up again so we can have our reception there... here's their site: Aaron's Atop the Ala Moana Dining Menu

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • 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.
