Hmmm…are there any excursions that are relatively cheap? If it’s 10 people total, would you consider doing one of the day trips with everyone and you and your FI cover the cost?

@heathie1:  Are you all leaving the same day? If so, you could host a farewell breakfast. That shouldn’t be too costly.

We’re paying for the rental house for all of the guests in Hawaii. We’re paying for all food and drink the day of the ceremony (20 adults including us).

We plan to host an event the day before the wedding and pay for that (there is a tourist attraction that has day passes for $69/person). Once everything else is paid for, we will determine if we have the budget to pay for that.

We are planning to supply a basic wet bar the day everyone arrives. One bottle of hard alcohol, 2 bottles of wine and a case of beer. When it’s gone, it’s gone. I’m also going to have welcome baskets for each group/couple that will be on the beds when they arrive.

We are having a very small beach wedding in Florida – 15 people in total.  I’m hosting a welcome dinner the night we and most others arrive which is the Thursday before the wedding. On the Friday my sister is hosting a little “girls night” sort of a mini bachelorette type thing. Then the wedding ceremony/dinner is on Saturday. I will also be giving my guests welcome bags.

@RedzyO:  If you don’t mind my asking, which island are you having your wedding on? I’m looking for ideas as well
