My Fiance and I are getting married 12-20-12 at the Sheraton Kauai Poipu Beach. We are trying to decide on a reception. We could have one at the hotel, but its really expensive. (Like $100 per person with no alcoholic beverages included in that price) We are not the sit down fancy style dinner kind of people. We are from Texas so we like to party, but in a casual Texas BBQ/cookout kind of way. I know the beaches are public so we could get a permit and have a reception at the Poipu Beach Park for free, and then figure out a way to get food, drinks, etc. I am wondering if anyone has had any experience with this or has any ideas for me. Please let me know.
