Now that we are engaged, we have come to realize that some serious wedding planning needs to go underway as soon as possible for our September wedding! It is March already, September is only 6 months away! That's scary! The good news is, the venue that we are interested in having our ceremony and reception at finally contacted me back today, and we are meeting with the planner this Sunday to discuss our wedding plans in details. We are so excited! I still cannot believe all of these are happening, and happening so fast!
This "Say I Do on O'ahu" event is an information session that offers people inspirations, ideas, and advice to those that want to either get married in Hawaii or have honeymoons there. Fiance and I are planning on getting married in the Bay Area since most of our friends and relatives are near here. But we have been considering going to Hawaii for honeymoon. So this event was perfect for us.
At the event we tasted yummy island themed wedding cakes (in coconut -- my favorite!, and passion fruit), drank bubbly champagne and Mai-Tai, watched makeup demonstrations, and ate yummy Hawaiian inspired hors d'œuvre. At the end of the event, there was even a prize drawing for hotel stays and airline tickets to O'ahu! Too bad we didn't win :p Congrats to the lucky couple who did!
They also gave us a ton of information brochures, coupons, and Hawaiian related souvenirs to take home! Along with the knot Northern California magazine, which was so timely because I was just browsing their website earlier today and thinking about purchasing! :)
