Iâ€™m getting my hair & makeup done at the Westin Spa.
We originally had chosen blue and orange as our colors (as in our STDâ€™s) but then changed them to blue, chocolate brown, and cream.
Save the Dates
I designed these and had them printed at Office Max (I hadnâ€™t heard of Vista Print yet!)
I bought everything from Cards and Pockets to make these. I bought the Metallic Tiffany Signature Pocketfolds, Bronze (Metallic) Cardstock, Cream Cardstock (for the inserts), and the Milk Chocolate European Flap Envelopes (5.25x7.25).
My wrap-around label:
I made these in Word, printed them out on a full sheet label and then cut them out myself. I forgot to take a picture of them on the envelopes!
Our Response back from the White House:
Not done yet!

We will be staying in an Ocean View room at the Westin Resort & Spa. We got a great deal for 8 nights and daily breakfast for two.
Weâ€™re getting married at Olowalu Plantation House. We just fell in love with the location.
Our set up will be similar to this:
Our wedding coordinatorâ€™s husband, Jamie Lawrence, was highly recommended by many. Weâ€™re excited!
Bridal Party Processional: A traditional Hawaiian song that we left to Jamieâ€™s discretion
Bridal Processional: Maunaleo
Song after ring exchange: Kawai Lehua Aâ€™ala Ka Honua
Recessional: Somewhere over the Rainbow (ukulele version)
Ring Bearer Shell:
Weâ€™re going to fill it up with sand but this is what it looks like:
My Bouquet: Agapanthis, Pink Stargazer Lilies, Bird of Paradise, Red & Pink Ginger & Orchids
My Lei (single lei of Tuberose flowers):
Groomâ€™s Maile Lei:
Mothersâ€™ Leis (Purple Orchids):
Fathersâ€™ Leis (Green Orchids)
Not done yet..

I bought some of the Metallic Tiffany cardstock from Cards & Pockets and the rest of the paper was left over from the invites. Weâ€™ll put these on the palm fans on everyoneâ€™s chairs.
This was how I had it set up in the Word document (screenshots with names taken out):
(I â€œborrowedâ€ that quote under In Remembrance I believe from someone on this boardâ€¦thank you)
Reserved Seat Signs:
I designed these in Microsoft Word, printed them on the Cream Cardstock and used glue dots to adhere it to leftover Bronze metallic cardstock. Then I just slid the ribbon in between so it would still be adjustable. Very easy!
Still more to come..

Guest Book (Amazon)
Guest Book Sign:
We wanted to have pictures of us as kids and now, our parentsâ€™ wedding and of the FIâ€™s grandfather who passed away.
Weâ€™re going to have a mini cake and champagne reception before the luau. Itâ€™s a vanilla cake with buttercream frosting and whipped cream custard and lilikoi for the filling. Our cake will be like this but with tiffany blue ribbon instead of pink:
Cake Topper (eBay):
Cake Serving Set (Michaels):
We ordered these from here:

Old Lahaina Luau for our Reception:
After our ceremony, we wanted a stress-free and fun reception. I know this wouldnâ€™t work for some people but the FI & I are just super casual and laid back so having a luau reception was perfect for us.
We bought the guest bags from Oriental Trading:
Bridesmaid bag (Target):
Man of Honor/Groomsmen/Ring Bearer: We found these drawstring bags at the Adidas Outlet in our wedding colors!
Most of the filler is going to come from local products in Maui. I also ordered stuff from Oriental Trading (Tropical Pocket Calendars, Hibiscus Chain Purse with Personalized Key Chain and Coconut Tree Pens)
Hereâ€™s a picture of the actual Hibiscus Chain Purse with our personalized Key Chain

Best Man: Flip Cam with Underwater case:
Groomsman & Man of Honor: Ceremony shirts, Redskins Beach Towel & Sandals
Ring Bearer: Heâ€™s a big NJ Devils Hockey Fan so we got a customized sweatshirt from the NHL shop online.
