Most resorts have so muh going on, that entertainment takes care of itself.

    We took time every evening to dine with different guests. It is too hard to cordinate a large dinner every night. This allowed us to have more intimate conversation and spend time with everyone.

    I love the sailing idea! Was that through the resort?

      I think the excursion idea is a great twist for a destination wedding. depending on where you are having it you can also book a night out for everyone after they have dinner one night!

            DOn't think there is a normal as such. We're just doing a welcome dinner, next day will prob be a girls day at spa with boys at golf or everyone on a cruise together and then the wedding the following day

              Most of our guests will be in Maui Monday through Sunday.  We are doing an informal welcome party the first or second (more likely) night.  The rest of the week, we will be doing non-hosted activities with guests that would like to participate.  I will give our itinerary on our website and encourage guests to make reservations for the things that they really want to do (i.e. snorkel cruise, zipline, horseback ride down the volcano, surf lessons).  


              At night we wanted to have more intimate dinners with select friends and family.  Our group will be 25-30.  


              No rehearsal dinner.  We are going to have dinner with just our parents that night, I think.


              Wedding Ceremony on Saturday at 3:00.


              Reception: Luau at Feast at Lele


              Possible Farewell Brunch on Sunday... undecided yet.


              We wanted the guests that really wanted to spend time with us to have the opportunity to, but also to have the freedom to take time and enjoy their vacation if they wanted as well.
