The luncheon sounds a bit long–it generally doesnt take people two hours to eat, and you dont want them to exhaust all their topics of conversation or else they will get bored at the reception.

personally, I’d start the ceremony at 3pm (or 4pm, your ceremony shouldn’t take an hour unless you really have a bunch of things being said and done right?), do your first flight thing, and then go straight into the reception. not sure if I would like being at someone’s wedding the entire day. that’s just me though.

I think its fine, I would be happy to take some time to do whatever, and change and NAP! giving yourself more time is better than trying to squeeze it all in.

I thought it sounded long until you said it was a destination wedding. Everyone who is there has set aside that entire day for YOU! I think it’s nice that you’re keeping them entertained all day (and giving them time to nap)!

I think if people are flying all the way to Hawaii to be at your wedding, they must be awfully close to you, and I think if they’re that close to you then they wouldnt mind spending that much time at your wedding. I personally wouldnt mind.

I think the gap is fine. The lunch probably isn’t necessary especially since you are having the full reception later. It would be different if people had no where to go but since everyone is staying close by the gap will be nice to go and enjoy Hawaii and get ready for the party. I think it all sounds like an amazing celebration but if you are worried about too much time and/or money I would just not do the lunch with everyone, maybe just the Bridal Party and parents before pictures.

@missysahib:  lol, No! We dont have a set date yet (we’re probably eloping) so I just picked a random far off day.
