Rehearsal Dinner or Reception
Posted 18 January 2010 - 06:00 PM
But I have around 40 guests, and several of these places either don't have room for that many (without a buy-out), or have very expensive menus when your party is that large.
Has anyone planned a dinner with this many guests? Any recommendations?

We are using the Old Lahaina Luau and have heard fabulous things abou it. They also include a lei for each guest. I hope this helps! If you want to find out more, here is their website: Maui Luaus, Old Lahaina Maui Luau | Official Website

Some people had mentioned Hula Grill for their rehearsal dinner. We are considering them because they can hold 40, and their menu isn't ridiculous. It also seems very casual and fun. We don't really want anything fancy. We just want to have a good time and not spend a fortune.
Same goes for Duke's restaurant, and we are looking into Kimo's as well.
We are also considering a dinner cruise. Does anyone know anything about any of them?!?!?! It looks like Maui Princess is the most popular one, but the price is a little high for us. We are considering the QuickSilver.. we talked to the owner/manager, and he was very nice and helpful. He even said he would let the kids go for free But our wedding planner doesn't know anything about it..
The last thing we are looking into is a reception at the Kaanapali Beach Hotel. Does anyone know much about this? They set you up outside (where you can still see all of their entertainment) - it sounds very nice. They have 3 hours of entertainment, including an hour hula dancing show. The menu looks amazing (not cheap, but you get a lot for what you pay). We are a little skeptical because the price is adding up quickly. You must pay per hour to have a private bar, there is a set up fee, and the meals aren't cheap.
And I think we're just going to have our rehearsal dinner at our timeshare - they are very flexible and have a room they can reserve for us. Sounds very casual and convenient for everyone since they are all staying in the same place.
Any opinions would be appreciated!

They are very accommodating and friendly here. We felt very taken care of and our guests were thanking us all night for inviting them!! If you want to hold a dance they have a stage for a live band or DJ to set up and have a decent sized dance floor. Stacy, you mentioned that you want casual and fun, I think you would see that you'll find that at Mulligan's!
The place was definitely perfect, at least for us!
I see you're from Des Moines!! Very cool! Congrats on your Hawaiian wedding! You'll love it!

Unfortunately, I need a location closer to Kaanapali Beach.
My wedding will be at Kapalua Bay, and several of my guests are not renting cars while staying in Maui...
Any other recommendations will definitely be appreciated! Thanks
