Ideas for using a Maui Chuppa Rental
Or, for a simpler wedding some prefer to hang fresh flower lei over the wedding chuppah and then use the lei for the Hawaiian wedding lei exchange. Whether you decide on an elegant formal style or choose a casual wedding on Maui, one of the easiest ways to customize an island wedding is by renting a wedding chuppah or arch. Not only are wedding chuppah beautiful and easy to decorate, a wedding chuppah is one of the best ways to create an affordable Maui wedding package. Quickly Scan 3 of the best reasons to include a Maui chuppah rental in your wedding budget:
- Affordable Wedding Decoration Since most Maui weddings are outdoors, a bit of creative artistry is necessary to create intimate spaces for the various phases of a wedding. There are few better ways to create a wedding ceremony space than with a natural wedding chuppah adorned with fresh tropical flowers or linens matched to your wedding style and color. From formal to casual, a Chuppah adds a little tropical stylistic flair while serving the functional purpose of providing shade to keep direct sun off the couple getting married as they exchange their matrimonial vows under the watchful eye of a Hawaiian wedding officiate with their friends and honored wedding guests looking on. The tall vertical sections are ideal for adorning the arbor with the large tropical flowers of Hawaii. Pink and red torch ginger mixed with green Ti or tall blooming Heliconia artfully scattered among mixed palm leaves provide spectacular natural tropical floral additions for the vertical sections of a beautiful wedding chuppah. In addition to flower lei, some prefer to use colorful linen, shells or other decorations for the horizontal sections. Our advice is to request the professional florist to match flowers for the chuppah to the flowers used on wedding reception table centerpieces and other wedding flower arrangements. The flowers used on the Chuppah presented were arranged by Maui florist Terrie Fukushima of www.floristonmaui.com
- Customize to Match Natural Décor for Outdoor Beach Weddings on Maui A wedding chuppah easily fits with any wedding theme and blends with the natural beauty of Maui. Whether you select a natural wood chuppah for your wedding or choose a bamboo chuppa matching some of the popular chiavari chair rentals and utensils, youll be able to use fresh tropical flowers to customize the chuppah.

Though we love wedding chuppahs and believe any couple planning on getting married in Maui would be making a smart choice to include a chuppah rental in their wedding budget, keep in mind Maui beach weddings will not be able to place a wedding chuppah on a beach directly. The county regulates all Maui beach weddings requiring any wedding held on Maui beaches to agree to not use fixtures, chairs or arches while also limiting the number of guests and amount of time for the wedding ceremony as part of the beach wedding permit. Instead of a toes in the sand wedding, we recommend getting married a wedding location immediately adjacent to a beach. Or, arrange to get married on Maui at a private wedding estate with a sand beach for the wedding ceremony. The Outrigger El Dorado cabana is an excellent choice for a Maui beach wedding location in Kaanapali with a ceremony site immediately adjacent to the beach just north of Kaanapali Black Rock. You wont find a wedding reception location on Maui closer than the Eldorado cabana! The white house private estate is an excellent choice for a wedding in Lahaina with an oceanfront wedding site and plenty of room to accommodate wedding receptions up to 50 guests. Accommodations for wedding guests is available or when available arrangements to use the Lahaina estate for a wedding day rental or other private catered events may be made. For large weddings, you wont find a more Hawaiian wedding location than the Olowalu Plantation House in West Maui and just a few miles south of Lahaina. The images above are from a wedding at the location shot by MeewMeew Studios wedding photography and included a natural wedding chuppah with fresh flower lei and tropical flowers.
