3 Reasons to Host a Catered Day After Wedding Brunch for Maui Weddings

Maui wedding reception catering at Olowalu Plantation.Day after wedding brunches continue to be a popular trend for Maui weddings. After all, you and your wedding guests have travelled thousands of miles to celebrate your wedding so you may as well spend as much time together as possible. Though a few of your wedding guests may cringe at the thought of giving up a morning of golf on Maui to attend a day after wedding brunch, most will be more than happy for the opportunity to spend more time with the couple they traveled to see get married on Maui. After the usual hectic times of the wedding celebration itself, many couples opt to host a day after wedding brunch to spend more time with the guests who traveled to their destination wedding on Maui.

After you read through our 3 Reasons a Day after Wedding Brunch Makes Sense for Maui Weddings below, leave a comment sharing your own reasons for considering a post wedding brunch:

  1. More Time for the Bride and Groom to Spend with Guests – The biggest reason to get together for brunch the day after the wedding is to permit the just married couple to spend more time with their family and friends who traveled to their destination wedding on Maui. With digital wedding photography options, ask your wedding photographer if they are able to provide your wedding images in time for the day after wedding brunch. If so, a day after wedding brunch is a great way to relive the wedding day and share the wedding photos with your guests.
  2. More Casual than the Maui Wedding – Certainly many Maui beach weddings are indeed more casual than mainland weddings. Still, a day after wedding brunch provides a casual way to spend additional time with wedding guests without the formality of the wedding itself. Even if you visited everyone during the wedding Champagne on ice for a catered day after wedding brunch on Maui.reception, odds are there were a few guests who would like to spend more time with you after the wedding. A brunch on the day after the wedding provides both the couple who got married and their guests opportunity to reunite once more before the couple departs for their honeymoon or wedding guests depart to travel home. Everything will be less formal and more casual after the ceremony and wedding reception is finished. You and your guests will enjoy a casual day after wedding brunch on Maui!
  3. A Quick Way to Say Thank You – Since you may be traveling a few weeks before you get home and get around to sending out wedding thank you notes, hosting a Day After Wedding Brunch is one of the most thoughtful ways to express your gratitude and appreciation and say Thank You to the wedding guests who traveled to attend your wedding on Maui. Since your wedding guests are on vacation, consider a mid-morning brunch rather than an early morning breakfast.

CJ’s Kaanapali Diner Review

My daughter and I visited Maui a couple of weeks ago and came to your restaurant 3 times. I just wanted to thank you for your willingness to meet our gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free requirements. We loved being able to eat out safely and wish we had a CJ’s at home! I just wrote you a stellar review on Trip Advisor. Hope you have a wonderful rest of the summer!

CJ’s Maui Restaurant Review

Wonderful for a Sunday Brunch since you can order breakfast until 11:00am! Had a ‘custom’ 3 ingredient omelette (I chose mushrooms, feta and spinach) with nicely crunchy on the outside and soft inside home potatoes, yummy. Hubby had the pancakes with fresh fruit! These are light fluffy slightly sweet batter pancakes, not those heavy bland ones (OK I admit it, I had to have a few bites of his breakfast…) Service was fast and friendly :0). The menu is EXTENSIVE, we live here and love it!

CJ’s Deli and Diner Maui Restaurant Review

Fact: CJ’s Maui onion soup will melt your face off it’s so good. Best I’ve ever had. It gets 20 stars.
Alas, it’s not on the menu every day… But when my fiancee and I went this past summer and were lucky to meet Chef CJ in person and mentioned that we had been thinking about the onion soup since the last time we visited two years earlier, he was kind enough to put it on the next day’s menu. We went back the following day and ordered it, and it was amazing, just as we had remembered. Another fact: the onion soup at CJ’s is better than the onion soup at Mama’s Fish House (and at like 1/4th of the price). Really. It’s that good. Part of me wants to reverse engineer CJ’s onion soup recipe, quit my job, and make millions selling onion soup to the mainland masses! (or: CJ, wanna make a deal?)
I think that the loco moco gravy is made from the same goodness. So that’s great too. The potato salad is tasty as well.
The to-go lunch plate is respectable.

Maui Chef CJ Prepares Mushroom Soup for Kaanapali Restaurant Guest

On a previous visit to Maui, I had the most delicious mushroom soup at CJ’s Deli and Diner in Kaanapali. When I arrived in Maui this week, I emailed the restaurant and asked what day they might have the soup. The owner and chef, Christian Jorgensen (CJ), promptly replied even though he was on vacation in Vegas. He gave me a number to call to check on the soup of the day. Then when he returned to Maui on Friday, he emailed me to let me know he would have the soup for me on Saturday. When I got there, he was so friendly and the soup was even more scrumptious than I had remembered. I really appreciated how valued he made me feel as a customer.

Good Morning, My wife and I spent last week in Maui. Your early bird special was the best. After we found you, we ate breakfast there every morning. You had two regular coffees that we just loved.

CJ’s Maui Restaurant Customer Comments on CJ’s Private Luau in her Blog

Aloha, Just wanted to let you know that this post was up last Friday and it will be included (linked) with all of our Hawaii properties. Thank you both for excellent service. You made our trip to Maui very memorable! Feel free to comment on the post. It’s always good to have additional information and your input.

Aloha, We were in to see you many times during our stay last month in Ka’anapali, couple of things for you:
Need to order some more of your CJ’s roasted Kona Coffee. I see it’s not yet on your website, only the Maui Coffee Co. stuff. We ran out last weekend and are having withdrawls, please help!! Need 2 bags urgently!!
Secondly, your claim about having the best corned beef hash on the island. I think you’ve understated this because it’s the best I’ve had any where in the world! And that covers a lot of ground as I’ve been to every continent multiple times. Just the best anywhere, period!! Don’t suppose you would have that for delivery to Indiana would you? Maybe by the pound(s)?
Great people and even better food, Mahalo CJ’s. Seriously though, please let me know about that coffee. How do we get some ordered and shipped to Indiana?

​CJ’s Deli & Diner Rocks! Been here several times while visiting Maui – each time we tried different meals and each time we LOVED the food, service and atmosphere. Only suggestion would be to provide regular dinner napkins along with this paper type – because we’re messy!

Aloha and Mahalo from Detroit
