I am planning a small wedding on the island for sometime in August. I really want to stay on the North shore to avoid the more resorty atmosphere of the South, but I'm having a very hard time narrowing down my options. I love the idea of staying Hanalei, with everything (stores, food, beaches) at my doorstep, but I am also concerned about the rain. It seems to be the rainiest spot along the North shore. Also, the vacation rentals that I have found don't seem to be as nice as some other areas of the North, yet cost just as much if not more! I have also found homes on/near Anini Beach, Tunnels Beach, and Princeville. With the later, I know I will have a trip to the beach, but the home is really nice for the price. With Anini and Tunnels, the homes are fairly nice, although small, and right on the beach, but I am afraid of being too far away from other things, such as stores and restaurants. I am not as much concerned for myself as I am my family. My fiance and I will be taking our parents and siblings (total of 7 people) and I want everyone to have options since I certainly don't want to have to entertain them all on my honeymoon! Any advice that can be offered would be soooo appreciated! I am literally driving myself insane trying to make a decision this weekend!
