KAUAI WEDDING REVIEW! (w/ pics!!)

Recommended Posts

Your review was so detailed - thank you! It reminded me that I need to stay calm during the planning process and during the event b/c little things will come up that might be hard to deal with but in the end it's not about the little things its about marrying the one you love. I think your pictures are great, so colorful - GREAT flowers and yes the tent looked AMAZING! :) Just curious, was it a high number of your guests who didnt show up b/c of the trip/costs? Or was the number expected? I'm a little worried about this for my own wedding with the economy being bad. Also, did you have any guests who said they were coming and didn't?

Thanks! I was glad to share my thoughts- both good and bad- throughout this process. You know, since there aren't as many Hawaii/ Kauai brides, we really need to share our opinions and experiences...

weddinggirl, the issues with guests and invites were some of the most complicated, and made me want to just elope! More than half of the guests didn't RSVP (both yes and no's), I had more "maybes" until 2 weeks before the wedding than I could count, and 1 no-show. I felt bad because I didn't have a hotel or resort to block off rooms for group rates, which I think complicated things. We urged our guests to check out vacation rentals in our area, and provided them with contact information. We also offered several people the chance to stay in our rental for free, but either the timing or the airfare got in the way.

I definitely have to give the wc props for doing up the tent! I just told her I trusted her judgement, and that we wanted local flowers. She pulled off an amazing set up! All I picked out were the table cloths!!
