The idea of a destination wedding might seem unattainable, but the reality is that these types of weddings actually have many advantages over planning a wedding near your home. There are many reasons why planning a Maui destination wedding can be one of the best decisions you ever make.
Your wedding day is undoubtedly one of the most significant days in your life, so you want it be as memorable as possible. What could be more memorable than exchanging your vows at sunset as the music of waves crashing on the shore serenade you and your partner? These will be memories that you truly will cherish forever.
There are few places on earth more beautiful than Maui, and with picture perfect beaches, spectacular resorts and lush private estates and plantations, your most difficult decision probably will be deciding on a location for your ceremony. Will you choose Kapalua Bay at sunset or the hidden lagoon of Makena Cove? Perhaps you would prefer the tranquil, tropical setting at the Kula Botanical Garden or the sweeping mountain views at the Maui Tropical Plantation. There are even many restaurants and resorts where you can hold both the ceremony and the reception that follows.
You might be worried about the cost, but a destination wedding can cost less than a typical at-home wedding simply because you tend to have fewer guests. The cost of the average American wedding is about $25,000 and many weddings are even more expensive. Much of this expense includes paying for the reception. Your Maui wedding probably will include only very close friends and immediate family, which makes it surprisingly affordable.
At Love Maui Weddings, we can take care of all of the details for you so that you can spend your time enjoying your special time with your partner as well as your wedding party. This is another big advantage of the destination wedding. You will need to hire a Maui wedding planner simply because we are the local experts and can secure the beach permit, contact the minister, arrange flower delivery and all the other details. All you have to do is enjoy yourself.
This is another reason why a destination is so wonderful. For a typical wedding, we are running around, attending to last minute details and it’s all a bit stressful and we spend little quality time with our wedding party. A Maui wedding is more like a vacation for you and your family and friends, and you can enjoy both your wedding and your honeymoon in the same idyllic location.
