    Hi Hi, I’m a florida girl as well and I’ve always dreamed of dancing in the sand on my wedding day too! If you go with the luau option, you might consider providing a bus back to a central location. That way people can sober up on the ride back or cab it on home from there. Alternatively, you could faciliate the rental of a massive beach house nearby where people can crash for the night.

    Whichever you decide it sounds like a fun wedding!

    I agree, if you have shuttle buses, then you eliminate that issue. Have pre set times and people can make the decision to be ready when the shuttle is leaving or get a hotel room.

    The luau sounds like an absolutely fantastic time. Also, if you don’t like being the center of attention, the luau will be a more social atmosphere thus you may feel much more comfortable.

    Laterns and white lights also would make the beach so romantic… Your lucky to have 2 great ideas to pick from but the beach wedding would be my pick (same age as you).

    Just curious what you ended up doing? I’m kind of in the same dilemma. Can’t decide between a beautiful historic hotel and a outdoor more casual historic farm.

    @kellylee:  It’s my humblest of opinions that casual is the way to go in Hawaii. It’s what Hawaii is all about!
