Both options are great options! I would love to do the same for my wedding (have a luau for a rehearsal) but like you we can not afford both options. The pros of a luau are that you are providing your guests with entertainment and an experience. I think a luau is a little too informal since it will not allow our guests to mingle much. We will be having a nice dinner at a restaurant for our ‘reception’. I don’t think you can go wrong with either option, it just depends on your group and your wants.

Have you looked into the Feast at Lele?  It’s a bit more expensive than a traditional luau, but it’s a sit down dinner with servers….so no long lines.  Also, you and your guests will have your own table and entertainment is included too.

I just replied to another of your posts as well! My florist/wedding planner just told me about his new idea of private luaus- so bummed this wasn’t available for my wedding. I saw you are a budget bride- it looks like this includes everything- private ocenfront luau, plated dinner, cocktails, entertainment, photography etc! Darren is amazing- you can email him and he replies so quickly and was the most helpful vendor we dealt with by far. The price on website is for 50 ppl, so should be less for your sized group? This will be the closest to all-inclusive package on Maui you can get:


Good luck- I would love to see pics if you go with this option- looks incredible! I got married at this location- Kukahiko Estate- was incredibly gorgeous, definitely one of the most breath-taking spots on Maui:)

I agree to do the dinner; a luau is quite informal, noisy and crowded and you would definitely not be the center of attention!
