Do you think getting married on Maui or planning a destination wedding on a tropical island will be more difficult and costly than planning a wedding in your home town? We hear couples explaining the wedding planning process was smoother and solved several problems they were having before deciding getting married on Maui would be easier. If you are anxious about planning your wedding and trying to make everyone happy or unsure how to decide which guests to invite while staying within your wedding budget, read how getting married on Maui solves 3 common wedding planning problems:
- Too Many Guests Are you having difficulty pruning the guest list without risking annoying your lovable great aunt Mabel by not inviting her to your wedding or concerned that a friend from high school who stalked you on Facebook will show up at your wedding if you dont invite her? A destination wedding will invariably prune your guest list without you needing to make the hard decisions of who can or cant be invited. Since a destination wedding requires attendees to make the extra commitment of planning and time to attend and bear expenses of traveling to your destination wedding on Maui, some invitees will simply not be able attend. Therefore, your wedding guest list will be smaller. Many catered wedding reception services are attended by 25 to 60 guests.
- Reduce Wedding Costs and Expenses Since you were going to plan for and pay for a honeymoon anyway, a destination wedding may cut some costs when compared to the expenses of a large wedding in your hometown. This is especially true if you combine your wedding with your honeymoon. In addition to the possibility of saving on travel, destination weddings are usually smaller than a hometown wedding. Floral and décor costs are less costly when the natural scenery provides décor. Certainly no need to pay to recreate a theme for your wedding and wedding reception when you are getting married on Maui! Your wedding reception and rehearsal dinner will likely cost less as many skip the traditional sit down restaurant rehearsal dinner opting instead for a welcome barbecue on the beach where some weddding guests will meet each other for the first time. And dont worry, if you decide you need to rehearse the wedding, youll still have plenty of time and opportunity to ensure everything goes smoothly during your wedding ceremony on Maui.
- Too Many Traditions and Formality Are you getting badgered by your uncle Sylvestor’s wishes for you to incorporate your grandmas favorite heirloom into you wedding?
