At Love Maui Weddings, we’ve obviously planned thousands of weddings, ranging widely in size, budget and specifications. Over the years, we discovered a few helpful tips that can lessen the wedding planning mania and create a truly enjoyable experience. Here are a just a few of our helpful suggestions.
Start Planning Early:
Perhaps you can wait more than 24 hours after the proposal, but the sooner you start to think about the big event, the better. You don’t have to hammer out all the details right away, just discuss what you want. Also, be sure to have this conversation alone. While family and friends are certainly going to chime in with suggestions and advice, it’s best for the two of you to discuss your wishes first.
As Maui wedding coordinators, we know that the process moves much more smoothly when couples have a pretty good idea of what they want and when both are on the same page. If you aren’t really sure what Maui destination weddings are all about, take a look around our website and you will get some ideas about your location options, flowers, wedding packages and much more.
Make A List:
Obviously, as Maui wedding coordinators, we are going to handle most of the heavy lifting, but it pays to know what needs to be accomplished and by what date. Sometimes, just having it all organized and written down brings great peace of mind. The best part about a Maui destination wedding is that you won’t have to handle many of the tasks on the list yourself, lightening up your load significantly.
Your list should include tasks such as when to send out invitations, when to buy plane tickets, booking accommodations and planning out any excursions or special meals during your stay. We can offer some helpful suggestions when it comes to making travel plans and finding interesting activities.
Keep Your Sense Of Humor:
Everyone has a dream of their “perfect” wedding day, but the journey to that day and even the day itself can include a few bumps along the road. Often, the difficulties you face make for fantastic wedding stories in the years to come, so just keep it all in perspective. The most important part of the whole experience is the joining of two people in matrimony.
This can be another advantage of a Maui destination wedding. After all, destination weddings typically have fewer guests which usually means you end up with fewer problems and are surrounded by the most important people in your life. Plus, who could be unhappy in Maui? The whole experience will be like a vacation for your and your guests.
Live In The Moment:
Aside from having children, getting married is about the most significant moment of our lives. Don’t forget to take a deep breath and really look around and take in the scene. Smile at your friends and family, listen to the waves crashing on the shore, and take a moment to really listen as you are being serenaded by a traditional Hawaiian musician. These are the memories that matter, so take them all in.
If a Maui destination wedding sounds too good to be true, we can assure that this is an attainable dream. As expert Maui wedding coordinators, we can help you with all of the details, no matter what size budget or wedding party you have.
