    We're holding our reception at the Fest of Lele.. I'm excited and i think it will be a great time.. the thing is.. what about the first dance? I'm sure we couldnt have one at the Luau.. If any of you ladies held your reception at a Luau did you just not have a first dance? or had one later somewhere else?

    any thoughts??

      We are having our reception at a restaurant; therefore, for our first dance we are going to have it at the wedding site. It's a private estate and we will have a guitarist playing music, so our Wedding Coordinator suggested having it there. It should be lovely doing it outdoors. Maybe you could have yours right after the wedding ceremony also. Even if it's happening on a beach, it will be lovely.

          Right after the ceremony on the beach is a great idea! We only had about 20 people come so didn't do a first dance at all. Neither of us cared very much but if it's something you really want to do I say do it on the beach.. you'll probably get some great shots from your photographer :)

            We just got back from Maui yesterday & we had our reception at The Drums of Pacific Luau at the Hyatt Regency. We were just planning on doing our first dance at out AHR, but to our suprise, the luau emcee congratulated us at the closing of the show & played a song for us to dance to. The luau & the friendliness of the entire staff was amazing.

                I know, I was so absolutely amazed at how beautiful the Hyatt grounds were & how friendly & accommidating the entire staff was. It still amazes me that they did this for us with no asking or hinting on our part (especially since we didn't even book the luau until 2 days before :) I really do recommend anyone looking for a luau (either as a reception, rehersal dinner, or just a fun night, definately check out The Drums of Pacific.
