Just Starting out...

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! So it looks like it's a go for a destination wedding and we've narrowed it down to Oahu. We will be having a Catholic ceremony and a small restaurant reception at night. We are looking at about 25-35 people as of right now. We are definitely on a budget because we will be paying the airfare and stay for our grandparents and parents.

 

I've been looking at Roy's for the reception because of the great food reviews its gotten. (I a major foodie!) Has anyone had their reception there or have ate there? I know there are two Roy's in Oahu so I'm not sure which one is better. I wanted a nice intimate dinner for our reception so if anyone has any other suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.

 

Wedding planners? Did they help you tremendously? Was it worth the money? I wont be having a beach wedding so there's not a lot of set up except for the restaurant, but I'm hoping the restaurant will be able to help setup.

 

Not sure if anyone has visited any Catholic churches in Oahu. I've seen a couple...St.Augustines and St. Andrews. Any catholic brides have any feedback?

If you're looking for something a little more intimate, check out Ola at Turtle Bay Resort - Hawaii North Shore Oahu Restaurant It's my favorite restaurant on Oahu. They do a lot of wedding receptions there. It's an amazing venue- it's basically an outdoor space right on the beach. It is covered, but when the weather is nice, they take down the glass partitions so there's nothing obstructing the ocean breezes. It's perfect for a reception your size. The only thing to take into consideration is that it is on North Shore, so it is 45 minutes from Honolulu.

St Augustine's in beautiful. And right in the middle of Waikiki so if that's where you're all staying, it's easy for everyone to get to. The Roy's at the Waikiki Beach Walk is again, central to Waikiki and easy to get to. The other one is out at KoOlina so 30-45 min west (& if you hit traffic even longer). Both have small private rooms for parties.

Thanks Dina! I think Waikiki will be more accessable for everyone. The Roys in KoOlina should have a great view I would imagine but it is 30-40 mins out which I would have to provide transportation for.

 

I'm going to attempt to plan this myself since it's only gonna be 25-30 ppl. Catholic church and then a small nice dinner. Wish me luck!

Hi there...I'm also considering Oahu for my DW. I have narrowed down to a couple of locations, Oahu being one of them. I also want to get married at a church too, but I was thinking it might be a challenge since I'm from out of town and the church will not be my usual parish.

 

I will look into churches...preferable on the Ko Olina side since we are leaning towards having the reception around there too.

 

Happy planning...I will keep track of your posts for helpful information

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
