I think the Luau is an awesome idea!!! I agree it should be more than just dinner but I dont think you need to go in the full blown reception route. Dinner and the entertainment at the Luau would be perfect 🙂 Have fun planning your DW!!

We had a destination wedding in Vegas, and we took everyone out to a really nice dinner afterwards! It was a blast. We rented out a private room at one of our favorite spots, and everyone drank nice wine and ate delicious food. It ended up being a pretty late night. Cocktail hour started at 7:30; dinner went until 10pm. Some people went out gambling afterwards (our favors were poker chips to the casino where the restaurant was); other people went out to lounges.

I think your idea of dinner and a luau sounds like a lot of fun.

Edited to add: We also hosted all of our guests to a dinner the night before as well, just as a thanks for making the trip.

The luau is totally not a bad idea!  That would be fun.  If you’re looking for something more though, I’m doing a reception at a hotel.  They do it outside on the lawn, with dinner options and then a lot of other options.  I’ve opted for a DJ with dancing, but everything ends by 10:00. They might have something like that in Florida too?  Like wedding packages?  Let me know if you’d like more info, even though mine’s in Hawaii.
