Nick & I want to have a few things planned and we're going to invite anyone who wants to join us. But there's so much to do! It's so hard getting it down to just a couple of activities. We were considering ziplining, snorkeling at Black Rock, the Haleakala bike tour, Maui ocean center, etc! Too much to chose from

Everyone has their own agendas and I want them to feel free to do what they'd like while there. Even though I'd love to plan more for everyone, it's alot of work coordinating so many people! I put in our OOT Newsletter a list of activities that they can do while on the island and I will leave it up to them.
Not to add to the decisions but there is also kayaking/snorkel tours that look cool too!

For your Molokoni snorkel tour, who are you using?
I wanted to do a welcome BBQ too. I just couldn't figure out the timeline in my head b/c most people are probably flying in the day before the wedding and we couldn't decide whether to cook the food ourselves or have it catered. But it would be so much more convenient, money-wise.

We are having the BBQ on the day when most folks are flying in also. We are actually lucky because most of the flights coming in the from the West Coast into Maui arrive in the early afternoon, so anyone arriving that day will be able to attend.
Were were going to do the BBQ ourselves, but we decided to use Da Kitchen Hawaiian Cafe. The prices are reasonable and it will keep us from doing too much work! We'll get the main stuff, like Kalua Pork and Terriyaki, from them and supplement it with other things like Mac salad, veggies, chips, and fruit.
Here is their website: Parties/Functions

We threw a bbq for our guests as well as a luau. Some of us went on a helicopter tour and went up to the crater etc etc. There really is alot to do there!
We basically decided what me and hubby wanted to do, and then extended an invite to everyone if they wanted to join us or not.

Because my wedding is on a Saturday, I suspect most people will fly in Friday...which makes a welcome event a bit tough. But it is nice for people to get to know each other. What do you think? Should I do it anyway?

I thought the Welcome Party was a good way to get everyone together besides just the wedding day. Plus, I'm giving them their OOT bags at the party.
I'll totally review Maui Charters when I get back. LESS than a month until we leave. I can't wait for the vacation. LOL
