Maui Hawaii, is a dream destination for couples wanting to get married. Maui has perfect weather and exudes romance and natural beauty making it the perfect place to spend your honeymoon.
There are more than 20,000 marriages performed annually in Hawaii, and 50% of the marriages performed are couples who have traveled from another destination to get married. You can choose to manage all the details yourself or there are various services out there that provide assistance in planning their special day.
If you don’t to worry over the details than it’s easiest to allow someone to assist you with all the details. If your plan are to stay at a resort, you can inquire with the on-site wedding planner. This is the best way to handle it especially if your plans are to get married on the resort grounds. Please note, if you go this route, it will be pretty expensive. Make sure you discuss your budget with the coordinator and ask him or her to stay within your budgetary allotment. If your planning a mid size wedding, I might suggest using a local wedding coordinator. There are numerous wedding planners on Maui and I would suggest you do some research. If you need some referrals feel free to contact me for local recommendation. If your looking to keep your costs down and your looking to have a beautiful but simple ceremony please, give me a call and allow me to handle the details for you including the photography.
