S. Maui Beach info..Help Please!
Posted 13 August 2009 - 06:30 PM
I was wondering if anyone knows of beaches in south maui that have this option available (fire pits, bbq), for something like this after the sun goes down? Our wedding is at 5pm and I think the coordinator says the sun sets around 6:30. This would be perfect - we could have a bbq dinner, and maybe a fire or something with dancing on the beach. I dont know if this is a crazy idea or doable, but if anyone knows or has advice please help!

Here's the website I was using:
I also wanted to make sure that you knew about a new ordinance that went into affect last year. You aren't allowed alcohol on any of the Hawaii beaches, so that could possibly affect your festivities.
Maybe you could have a simple dinner at a coast side restaurant.

My dad is in that area all the time so I'll see if I can find out some more info about it.

I, too, had a tight budget since my DH and I were footing the entire bill. We were able to keep wedding ceremony costs at $1000 and the reception under $4500. Our wedding reception for 25 guests was at the Five Palms Restaurant in Kihei which was right on the beach. There is a beautiful grassy knoll right beside the restaurant....that I heard I could have had the ceremony on with no additional cost. That would have saved me ~$500 and 20 mins of drive time between ceremony and reception.
In hindsight, I would have preferred to use that time to take more pics with the photographer. In fact, I would have preferred to get married on the grassy knoll (near the bar) as opposed to listening to my nephew complain about the heat on the beach while waiting for the ceremony to begin.
I guess we all have 20-20 hindsight.

We actually chose Mulligan's on the Blue for our reception and I can assure you, it was fantastic! They have a very laid-back feel to them but still keep a niceness to them that I loved for our reception. The building is very old but they do a good job of maintaining it...the age of the building just really gives it a welcoming feel IMO. Our guests couldn't stop raving about how much fun they had...we had a DJ, which unlike other places that close down by 10pm, played until nearly 1am. If you decide to go with Mulligan's I think you'll be very satisfied with your choice! Good Luck and Congratulations!
