What to do after reception?

Recommended Posts

We are having our wedding and reception in Wailea, Maui. However I've never been there so I'm hoping someone can suggest something to do after the reception. We are debating about having a dance floor, because we may only have 20-25 guests. We aren't sure we want to pay the set-up fees etc for dancing if no one is really going to dance! What else could we do after the reception instead? I have a feeling Maui closes down quite early compared to other Hawaiian places. Anyone have any suggestions? I just don't want to send our guests home after 8pm cause there isn't anything to do after the dinner/dessert portion.. Thanks ladies!

 

PS.. We will be hosting a luau the next evening.. so I need other ideas :)

Here is FH response. F* em and we can start the honeymoon. He would rather not even have a reception. He wants to use the cocktail hour to consumate the wedding. HE IS SOOOO NASTY That is why I love him.

Is the wedding at a resort?

Unfortunately, Maui does close down early...our hotel bar closed at 9 and we found a neat little local hangout down the road at a golf course...I wish I could remember the name of it! We also cabbed it into Kihei where there is a small shopping "village" with lots of restaurants, bars, etc. most of which with live music nightly.

Maui does shut down pretty early. I like the idea of the bonfire w/ music. It's intimate and it gives your guests a time to mingle and relax/party all together.

Thanks girls.. we will be staying in Kihei so I'm sure we will check out what's happening around there. My reception is at The Seawatch Restaurant (Wailea) and it's beside a golf course I think..

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
