      We are going to the Luau at Lele...we thought it would be a very 'island' thing to do...and why not leave the entertainment to someone else...fine food and the drinks are complimentary!!! BONUS!!! By the time it's over, everyone is spent....and still lots of time to do the 'horizontal hula' .....hahahah!!!
      We have a morning wedding, brunch at the Seawatch, but the evening wasn't filled...thus the luau..
      Best Wishes...

        Hmmm BeachBride5 that is exactly what we are doing.. except we are having a late afternoon/early evening wedding and dinner at the Seawatch! And the following night we are doing the Luau at Lele! Did you have a wedding planner? We are from BC too... that would be crazy if we had the same wedding planner too! :)

          Hey Chiquita.....that's cool...Our wedding is in Sept. 23...not that far ahead of yours....I fill you in how everything goes.....good or bad...
          I don't have a wedding planner...just all the girls at "the knot".

          We are eloping with our girls, 15, 12, and 4! We are going 'all out'...I have two dresses, one for the wedding, full length, spaghetti straps, beaded bodice, short train....then for the Luau at Lele, I'm changing into a tea length, chiffon, airy, sexy beaded dress...My colors are pink and soft green...What about you
          Wow, and your from BC too....wouldn't THIS be a nice time to go...Snow everywhere...I'm near Prince George...UGH!

          Who's your WP? Bigger wedding? Give me the low down...I would love to hear more... We have Sean Michael Hower for our photographer....he's personality actually comes though in his emails..he was recommended by a fellow Maui bride, Aimie.
          Anyway, I have to go to work for a few hours, I can't wait to hear about your wedding....
          Oh, we are getting married on the beach, Makena Cove...LOVE IT!
          Talk later,

            Hey Chiquita and BB5, I see it's been a little while since this thread was active, but just wanted to say that we're also Canadian (we live in Calgary) and are getting married on Maui having our reception at the Seawatch on October 4. What a small world. We're using A Dream Wedding: Maui Style for our wedding coordinators. A coworker of mine used them for her wedding, and she raves about them.

              Hey Sherrie...It HAS been a while....I see that your wedding is just a wee bit after mine...Where are you tying the knot.?..
              We just had my future parents in law come back from there,...I quess the Seawatch rest. was amazing...and they said Maui is THE most gorgeous place they've been too, and they've been around!

              Because we are 'eloping' (some people know) I didn't have a wedding planner.
              I do have Sean Michael Hower for my photographer, and I plan to pick my flowers there.... Same with the cake...
              Have you got your dress....Sorry(nosy) its been awhile, and I forgot how much I miss talking to fellow brides!!
              Congrads, by the way!!

                Thanks BB5. I'm so glad to hear that your future inlaws liked the Seawatch. It was kind of scary booking it without ever having been there, but all of the reviews were so good, that it made me feel a lot better.

                Ashley at A Dream Wedding has been great as our wedding coordinator. We had her book Mike Sidney as our photographer and Rev. Vance Ali'i Rosete as our officiant. A friend of mine used both of them for her wedding, and was so happy with them. Her pictures are gorgeous! I figure it would be pretty hard not to get gorgeous pictures in Maui! That said, it was nice to have the reference. 2 of my friends at work have actually been married by Vance, and they both say he is fabulous. He does either a non-religious or religious ceremony. We chose a non-religious traditional hawaiian ceremony, which we're going to do on the beach. Our wedding planner said we can go check out the beaches they recommend in the week we're there before the wedding. I was a little nervous about leaving that until then, but she assured me it will be fine!

                I just found my dress yesterday! There was another one that I was considering, but then I tried on the one yesterday, and I knew. I had thought I wanted something less traditional (I was thinking one of Nicole Miller's destination wedding dresses), and I actually did find one of those dresses that I really liked, but somehow it didn't feel quite right. I ended up getting a fairly traditional dress, but it's in a pretty light silk taffeta, so it's not too hot, and it actually felt like it would be so right on the beach with barefeet.

                Anyway, I'll end this novel of a post now. Congratulations to you too!

                Sherry

                  Heya! I have a local wedding planner in town here, who specializes in Hawaii weddings... I'm not sure but she might use A Dream Wedding as the contacts over there. Make sure you guys post up your reviews for the beach weddings and Seawatch restaurant when you come back! I'm also having a non-religious ceremony.. I wonder how many reverends/ministers are there to do that? I should ask who mine is to see if it's the same guy!

                    Oh, can you guys let me know if you are renting the dance floor at the Seawatch? We are probably only having 20 people are so, so we didn't think the price was worth it for dancing. If you aren't doing the dance thing, what are you doing after the dinner for a fun reception thing?

                      Sherry...LOVED the novel...heck you are getting me all fired up again!!

                      I love the sounds of your dress...I'm a little worried about mine...its satin and quite heavy....having said that...our wedding is at 8:30am....Can you imagine...!!! (Apparently the water looks amazing at this time of day and the beach is VERY popular...My make up artist will have her work cut out for her...heck, I can barley look good by noon....hahahha)

                      We are having the wedding celebration as an all day thing....so I have a beautiful white silk dress that I will change into after our brunch at the Seawatch....to wear to the Luau at Feast of Lele....and here's another thing,.; I actually have another dress for the 'trash the dress' pics...GOT to love ebay!!!!!!

                      As far as an officiant...we have one tentitively booked, but I'm leaning towards having the guy you have...I want to have a Hawaiian!

                      Chiquita No dance floor for us, we are only there for brunch...well, then again it depends how many pina coloda's we have...hahahah
                      Wouldn't that be cute....
                      Anyways girls...keep in touch..
