hmm well the traditionalist in me would say after. 🙂 that way its a pure celebration after and you can just focus on getting to hawaii and doing one thing at a time. 🙂

I would have the reception after you get married. As a guest, I would feel strange celebrating your marriage, without you really being married. Just my opinion.

I would do the reception after the wedding.

I would say after because then people can congratulate you! Plus it would seem more like a real “reception” to me if it took place after the wedding. Either way would work, but traditionally speaking I think most people do it after if they are having one back home after a destination wedding.

If you really want to have it before, you can call it  a “bon voyage” party and give it a Hawaiian theme. My sister did that right before heading out on a cruise with a small group of family and friends who attended the actual wedding on board.

I vote for after. That way you can share wedding pictures and other wedding details with your guests. And if you have a video, you can show it at the beginning.They’ll want to see that and it’s a fun way to celebrate.And your pictures and/or video will be the next best thing to being there.

In my opinion, I think you should do it after your Hawaii trip : )  Good luck!

I would wait until you guys get back. Think about being able to actually have the reception as a Mrs. rather than a still future Mrs.
