You got engaged over the holidays and are planning your destination wedding in Hawaii? Congratulations! Now is the time to start planning a Maui wedding day to make all your destination wedding dreams come true!! Not sure where to begin? The first step to planning the perfect destination wedding is to select a wedding location on Maui. Discover the 3 primary reasons why choosing a wedding location is the most important decision youll make about a destination wedding on Maui!
- Choosing a Maui Wedding Location Saves Money Selecting a wedding location before other wedding decisions are made saves money and allows you to plan an affordable wedding on Maui. The biggest savings are realized when you select a wedding location able to accommodate multiple wedding events utilizing the same wedding location. Hosting a welcome barbecue for wedding guests, the wedding ceremony followed by a wedding reception at the same wedding venue allows reuse of wedding rental equipment such as seating, tables, lighting, bamboo chuppa coverings and other decorations. Delivery fees are reduced or eliminated; setup and tear down fees and other expenses are significantly less or eliminated altogether when equipment is reused for multiple functions over the course of a few days. Some Maui accommodations permit weddings on site when the wedding party or the wedding guests are housed in their guest accommodations. Utilizing the wedding location where you house your wedding guests can provide savings on separate wedding site fees while eliminating the hassle of finding a wedding venue in Hawaii. Transportation expenses are reduced by eliminating the need to transport guests back and forth between wedding and wedding reception locations or guest accommodations.
- Wedding Service Provider Options are Expanded Since many wedding venues on Maui insist on certain wedding service providers for weddings and events at their facility or place restrictions on outside wedding service providers, when you choose your wedding location first youll be able to select a location that permits the Maui chef you want to cater your wedding reception or the musician you want to play for the wedding ceremony. Youll have the option to utilize any wedding service provider on Maui! Purchase fresh flower lei or wedding flower arrangements from a Maui florist of your choice instead of from the hotels preferred wedding vendor. If you choose a wedding venue on Maui where you are limited to select only from their list of approved wedding service providers or to use the onsite wedding catering services you will at least be aware of the limited options. Perhaps youll want to arrange for an offsite welcome barbecue and then host your wedding reception at alternative location from the wedding ceremony. We often supply a welcome barbecue along with catered wedding reception package for considerably less than resorts charge. There are only a few wedding locations on Maui able to accommodate large groups and large wedding receptions. While most weddings on Maui average less than 75 guests, if you are planning a wedding with a large guest list youll need to select a venue suitable for the wedding guest count. We recommend making the Maui wedding location your first wedding planning decision! Download our FREE Maui Beach Wedding Locations eBook.

- The Most Wedding Planning Flexibility by Picking a Wedding Location First The rest of your wedding planning is easier and you have the most flexibility when you choose a wedding location first. Once you know where the wedding on Maui will be, youll be able to pick a wedding date knowing the venue is available. Then, youll be able to find wedding suppliers available on the day of the wedding and locate service providers who are best suited for the location and supplying everything you need for a perfect wedding in Hawaii.
