For my wedding dress, I am using an ivory evening gown. I figured it would be lighter than a full weddding dress! I love some of the light wedding wear from Watters/WToo.

We are getting married at Kalaeokai'a Estate in Kahana and then having our dinner reception at the 5 Palms on the patio. I love the idea of a private estate for the wedding, but it was definately cheaper to have a Reception at another venue... otherwise, I'd have a ton of rental fees. Whether to have the reception at the estate or elsewhere depends on your budget usually.

Are you using a wedding coordinator? It's a huge help.

Let me know if you have any questions.

I'm totally torn! I love the bohemian style, even tried on one of the Wtoo dresses that are flowy and light. But at the same time, it's my chance to wear a more classic gown...

I've heard lots about the Five Palms. What a beautiful spot! It just doesn't work for us because it's not quite where we want to be (south Maui).

We are using White Orchid Weddings and it's been helpful! Who are you working with?

When you say you think you made the wrong choice...do you mean in choosing your venue??

The wrong choice as in using Spago's as a reception, because I am still in love with the idea of an outdoor receptions under the stars. But I think budget wise, throwing an outdoor reception will be about $6000 more and it's just not worth it. Someone convince me that Spago's is better!!

We got married at our resort, Aston Kaanapali Shores, in a garden area that overlooked the beach. It was exactly what we wanted - quiet, private & we were able to have the beautiful scenary of the ocean & beach without having to deal with the sand.

As far as the heat, we got married at 3:00 & it was pretty damn hot that day (hottest day of the week - go figure :), but I don't think it was unbearable. My dress was a very elaborate, very heavy, beaded dress, so I'm sure had I gone with a lighter fabric, it would not have been so hot. All in all though, I would not have changed a thing. I think the weather was perfect for a beach wedding :) Good luck!!
