    I struggled with this forever and initally wanted it to be just me, fi, and our immediate families....because I KNEW that if I invited 1 close friend, I'd have to invite them all...in the end we invited everyone, but my parents are paying and that is why! I couldnt have afforded to do it myself and I think your idea of you and fi in Maui and an AHR is a beautiful idea. You could also have a symbolic ceremony in Maui and go to JOP with your family so they could witness the legal part? just a thought best wishes! I've found that if you stick to your gut you're usually the happiest!

      my situation is exactly the same.luckily enough neither of our families could afford it so it was,nt an option.however our best 2 friends are coming with us.i did want our own witnesses.don,t ask why one of those things that you worry about.i don,t want strangers on our photos crazy i know.and i wanted to do the night before apart thing and have someone to get ready with.but since we booked it and agreed on there being only us everytime we go out my fi has a few drinks and invites everyone saying more the merrier.but i put my foot down a little and said im really sorry but if our families can not come then i don,t want anyone else to come.

      we are having an ahr 2 weeks after we come back and we are making a big deal with that to our families so they feel involved.

      if you don,t want an ahr just arrange a family meal?try not to worry you need to do what you and your fi want.
