We choose to have our Wedding Reception at the Coconut Club. My guest's thoroughly enjoyed our event. Cocktail hour was 5-6. The Bride and Groom provided 3 cocktails per person and opted for buffet package, so we didn't have to pick between beef, chicken or fish. We had all three! Kahlua pork, Mahi-Mahi, teriyaki chicken breast and a Prime rib carving station (definitely worth the extra charge per person). We had ordered coconut shrimp and brushetta that was said to be "to die for". That did not go so well. I paid for 2 of each per person. I wish the staff served this to us because some of my hungry guests did not adhere to a appetizer portion serving and the bride and groom never saw it. Just as we finished apps and drinks the sun began to set. From the top of the Aston Waikiki it was spectacular! The staff was fabulous. We were assigned a host and a bartender. We hired the recommended DJ which was....just... ok for the price. I had to provide all my music on a CD and in turn he played it through Boze speakers. Months of arranging songs and minutes invested for that benefit. My Venue was a Friday night, so we enjoyed the Fireworks display by the Hilton Hawaiian Village ( I took credit for planning the show ;-0) lol.

So, what I did not like at all.... The rented Venue was pretty much a HUGE outdoor only patio with NO DANCE FLOOR and no inside AC to cool off from the toasting SUN. To have your first dance on the patio between tables was not to impressive or special. I would suggest a Coconut Club investment in a fold up wooden dance floor to lay down for weddings. There is enough room for a group to gather around inside for ( first dance, daddy-daughter dance, parents, bouquet and garter toss). That part was most disappointing as I had strategically choose the songs and times for all of these special dances. The view over Waikiki Beach was breathtaking! ALL of the food was very good. I would highly recommend Michael and his staff for your affordable, great food , fabulous view event!!

Mahalo for having your event at Tiki's and we hope that we help your create memories for a lifetime. In ten years of doing weddings in the Coconut Club, you're the first to suggest that an investment in a wooden dance floor. We think that's a wonderful idea and we'll look into it. Warm Aloha, Bill.
