    Hi! Just starting our planning for our DW for May 2011. We were hoping to have our ceremony and reception on a lawn near a beach. We are envisioning a place where we could have a private luau for 60 people and would cost us under $10,000. Anyone have any ideas which wedding planners or places may be able to provide such services?

        So I am doing something similar for my wedding on 2/8/2011. I am planning it myself. Although if you read Tovaqt's past posts, she recommends a flat fee coordinator which sounds like a great option.

        As far as reception goes, you probably will pay about $70 per person everything included for the food. (no drinks) And to hire 3 hula dancers+musician+fire drummer for 2 hours entertainment will be around $1000 according to my research which put you a bit over $5000 for 60 people. If your budget is $10000 for the whole thing, that leave you less than $5000 for the rest, officiant, venue rental, rentals including tent, outdoor lighting (if venue doesn't provide it), floral, photography, musician/dj or you can opt to do ipod yourself, which might be doable depending on what you look for.

        Hope this helps.

            The problem is venue- most private estates that are ocean front with a nice lawn have a minimum night stay- which adds up FAST! Have you checked out the Olowalu Plantation House? I think it ranges from $2k to $4k. For the size of your group- you need something larger like that property.

            @nursebecky: you will LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Della!!!! I still keep up with her and she is AMAZING with what she does!!

              We are having our ceremony at Olowalu but going to the Feast at Lele for our reception. We looked at doing a luau in the garden there for 35 ppl, but once you add on all the costs it was coming up to like $20,000! Way too pricey.
