(I tried posting a thread before but it didn't seem to work so I am trying again)
My fiance and I have recently decided on a DW. After reading many forums I think Oahu seems to be the best choice for us because of the nightlife and cheaper cost. I am basically overwhelmed by the choices and websites out there.
We want a beach ceremony, on the sand or in a grassy area right near the water. I don't know if a resort is the way to go or a rental property. Or if we should stay at a hotel but have the ceremony totally seperate. I also don't know if I should hire a wedding planner or try to do it all myself to save money. We are also looking to go to a luau as our reception to cut costs.
We are looking at having about 40-50 people. I don't want to spend a ton. I think our total budget is 10-15k which will include hotel stay and flights.
Any suggestions on planners, places or anything I will appreciate it.
