    Hi,

    We are looking at getting married at the Olowalu Plantation House and having both the ceremony and reception there. We were thinking of having the reception in a tent but are struggling as to what size we would need for how many.

    Also some vendors do packages for food, linen and such per person is this a good idea or does it work out cheaper to do it all seperate?! Any suggestions?

    Another problem we have encountered is the 10pm deadline anyone know of anywhere we could go after this as we dont want the night to end so early.

        Hey! We got married on Maui in June. About all I have in regards to Olowalu and the tent is that the companies who rent them out should be able to tell you what size for the number of people, whether or not you want dance floor under the tent, etc. If you have a wedding coordinator they can likely work this out with the rental companies as well.
        In Maui, we found it is very difficult to find a location that is open later than 10pm. We had our reception at Mulligan's on the Blue which is open until 1am. Only thing is, they're nearly 45 minutes from Olowalu. It's a great place though, we loved it!
        Congrats and happy planning!!

          Hi Bambi06,

          We are having our wedding at Olowalu. Since everything needs to be brought in individually I recommed using a wedding coordinator to help you. They will be able to share with you suggestions for keeping costs down. I feel that the investment you make in your WC is well worth it. We are using Lori from Tropical Maui weddings.

          In regards to the tent, we are considering renting a "just in case it rains" tent to be setup around the side of the house. A basic tent with room for approx. 50 to dine costs around $500.

          I hope that helps!

              Hello all!! I know this thread hasn't been active for a while but I am hoping to find some great advice from some ladies who have already done it! I am planning a Maui wedding and cannot quit thinking about Olowalu Plantation House. I got a proposal and it is sky high! I know that we have to have a wedding coordinator but I want to do a lot of things on my own to save money.  Did anyone use a WC just for the location? Any suggestions??

               

              Thank you!!
