Food for a small party

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone

Wonder if there is any locals who can help me.

I am getting married in June on Oahu. It is going to be a very small wedding, 10 guest MAX. Just trying to think of ways to feed my hungry family after the wedding ceremony. I think we'll probably go for a restuarant, but, to be a bit different I was looking at the Sunset Dinner Cruises?

Ill give you a bit about my background, my mum is from Hawaii and moved to England. We're going over this summer and want to get married. We go over as regualrly as we can, but would really appreciate some local knowledge.

I basically want to know if anyone has has a similar experience, or know about any really really good restuarants, or are there any dinner cruise that are any good and not just tourist traps.

Hi Caitlin,

I've been looking into something like that for a small dinner party too...don't know how these will help but

Star of Honolulu - they tend to do cruises for over 30 people, i don't know how willing they would be to accommodate less and they are also quite expensive even for the 3 star option

I have been looking into Tiki's Grill and Bar, its totally different and from reviews I have read of them they are really accommodating to requests.

 

You could also look into something in a hotel, I've looked at hiring the Rainbow patio at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, it isn't too expensive.

 

Have you also looked into having an outdoor luau?

Hey thanks for the suggestions!! My mum suggested one of the hotels, Moana Surer rider in Waikiki, and we could stay the night in the hotel (to get away from the familly apartment on our wedding night wink.gif ).

Check out Willow's. It's a buffet and the food is very good, and the place is very pretty. It's more of a "locals" place as not many tourists find their way over there. We visit every time I'm there. They do weddings right there on site too so they can accomodate a small party with your own private area of tables if you wanted. Welcome to The Willows Restaurant

I highly recommend Germaine's Luau as an option, esp. for such a small party. It was 72/adult which includes the bus ride to & from our hotel, 3 drink tickets and of course your buffet dinner. The atmosphere was just soooooooooo warm & friendly, we were all made to feel like 'ohana' there. Not only do you get a buffet dinner but a beautiful, one of a kind show. There were about 7 buses, and each bus had 1 group leader... our leader was amazing!! he was so funny, and helped us all become friends with one another. i went with a group of 11 (our family) with a full bus, and we had our own table. it was unforgettable!!!

 

my reception dinner was actually at Tiki's (Food was DELICIOUS!!!!) but after going to Germaine's i wish we had it there instead w/ all the fun stuff included!

    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
