4 Good Reasons for Getting Married in Maui

4 Good Reasons for Getting Married in Maui

A Maui wedding at the Olowalu Plantation House with blue umbrellas and a bamboo chuppah.Don’t put aside your dream of getting married on a tropical island because you think a local wedding will cost less or because of you believe planning a wedding in Hawaii would be too difficult. Those assumptions are myths! There are plenty of options to surprise even the most jaded future mother in law who doesn’t want you to get married in Maui. Take a look and then share your own reasons to get married on Maui or ask Maui wedding planning questions:  

  1. Who doesn’t want to get married on a romantic tropical island in paradise? Maui is one of the most beautiful wedding locations in the world! A Maui wedding fulfills every dream for anyone wanting a tropical wedding. Because so many couples get married on Maui, the local wedding industry is well established with plenty of experienced wedding professionals available and nearly every conceivable option available from simple affordable weddings to the grand and extravagant. From world class chefsMaui wedding table rentals with blue glasses and white table linens. to prepare the wedding reception dinner to Grammy winning musicians – Maui offers it all when it comes to weddings!
  2. Getting Married in Hawaii Costs Less. Not only will the guest list be shorter than a mainland wedding, plenty of opportunity exists to save money. Expensive wedding hall rental costs can be avoided or minimized by utilizing a wedding ceremony location with onsite accommodations for guests. Wedding decoration costs are reduced by hosting an outdoor wedding in Hawaii utilizing the natural beauty to incorporate natural elements. Tropical wedding flowers including ginger, orchids and heliconia create spectacular natural arrangements while the fragrant scent of tropical plumeria and tuberose are carried on light trade wind breezes. Imagine getting married beneath a linen draped bamboo chuppah adorned with fresh tropical flowers as the sun sets into the pacific just behind you and your loved one. After the ceremony and wedding photos, you and your guests move to the adjoining wedding reception area for a traditional Hawaiian Luau served under the stars with the soothing sounds of ocean gently lapping at the shoreline. Affordable Maui weddings are realized further when couples purchase their own alcohol along with our licensed bartender services. Here are a few more ways to save money on a Maui wedding.A wedding reception in West Maui.
  3. Hawaii weddings are usually more casual than traditional weddings. Everything from hosting a beach barbecue for a reception dinner to using local tropical flower arrangements can save money on Maui weddings. Skip the expensive bridal gowns and tuxes or limo rentals! A casual wedding on Maui makes destination weddings affordable. Though some still opt to wear a traditional wedding dress and tux, most couples getting married on Maui and their wedding guests prefer the island vibe and dress casually or semi-formal. A casual Maui beach wedding with everyone wearin white for the family photograph.Instead, brides often choose a less costly wedding dress and brides maids are able to spend less on their dresses. If you decide you do want to mix some of the formal wedding traditions with an island wedding, you’ll have no problem finding anything you want. Tux rentals on Maui are available for grooms and groomsmen and brides may ship their dresses to Hawaii or purchase locally.
  4. No Need to Worry about Aunt Mildred Interfering – Though they usually mean well, nearly every family has one of those relatives who want to unduly influence family functions or insist on planning details for family gatherings. Since a A Lahaina wedding reception with a catered reception dinner.wedding is more than a family gathering and includes the couples closest friends as well as family members, sometimes those well meaning relatives opinions just aren’t welcome or wanted. Getting married in Hawaii often eliminates this annoyance especially if Aunt Mildred hasn’t been to Hawaii, doesn’t know the islands as well as the couple getting married or can’t travel to attend a Maui wedding.

CJ’s Kaanapali Diner Review

My daughter and I visited Maui a couple of weeks ago and came to your restaurant 3 times. I just wanted to thank you for your willingness to meet our gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free requirements. We loved being able to eat out safely and wish we had a CJ’s at home! I just wrote you a stellar review on Trip Advisor. Hope you have a wonderful rest of the summer!

CJ’s Maui Restaurant Review

Wonderful for a Sunday Brunch since you can order breakfast until 11:00am! Had a ‘custom’ 3 ingredient omelette (I chose mushrooms, feta and spinach) with nicely crunchy on the outside and soft inside home potatoes, yummy. Hubby had the pancakes with fresh fruit! These are light fluffy slightly sweet batter pancakes, not those heavy bland ones (OK I admit it, I had to have a few bites of his breakfast…) Service was fast and friendly :0). The menu is EXTENSIVE, we live here and love it!

CJ’s Deli and Diner Maui Restaurant Review

Fact: CJ’s Maui onion soup will melt your face off it’s so good. Best I’ve ever had. It gets 20 stars.
Alas, it’s not on the menu every day… But when my fiancee and I went this past summer and were lucky to meet Chef CJ in person and mentioned that we had been thinking about the onion soup since the last time we visited two years earlier, he was kind enough to put it on the next day’s menu. We went back the following day and ordered it, and it was amazing, just as we had remembered. Another fact: the onion soup at CJ’s is better than the onion soup at Mama’s Fish House (and at like 1/4th of the price). Really. It’s that good. Part of me wants to reverse engineer CJ’s onion soup recipe, quit my job, and make millions selling onion soup to the mainland masses! (or: CJ, wanna make a deal?)
I think that the loco moco gravy is made from the same goodness. So that’s great too. The potato salad is tasty as well.
The to-go lunch plate is respectable.

Maui Chef CJ Prepares Mushroom Soup for Kaanapali Restaurant Guest

On a previous visit to Maui, I had the most delicious mushroom soup at CJ’s Deli and Diner in Kaanapali. When I arrived in Maui this week, I emailed the restaurant and asked what day they might have the soup. The owner and chef, Christian Jorgensen (CJ), promptly replied even though he was on vacation in Vegas. He gave me a number to call to check on the soup of the day. Then when he returned to Maui on Friday, he emailed me to let me know he would have the soup for me on Saturday. When I got there, he was so friendly and the soup was even more scrumptious than I had remembered. I really appreciated how valued he made me feel as a customer.

Good Morning, My wife and I spent last week in Maui. Your early bird special was the best. After we found you, we ate breakfast there every morning. You had two regular coffees that we just loved.

CJ’s Maui Restaurant Customer Comments on CJ’s Private Luau in her Blog

Aloha, Just wanted to let you know that this post was up last Friday and it will be included (linked) with all of our Hawaii properties. Thank you both for excellent service. You made our trip to Maui very memorable! Feel free to comment on the post. It’s always good to have additional information and your input.

Aloha, We were in to see you many times during our stay last month in Ka’anapali, couple of things for you:
Need to order some more of your CJ’s roasted Kona Coffee. I see it’s not yet on your website, only the Maui Coffee Co. stuff. We ran out last weekend and are having withdrawls, please help!! Need 2 bags urgently!!
Secondly, your claim about having the best corned beef hash on the island. I think you’ve understated this because it’s the best I’ve had any where in the world! And that covers a lot of ground as I’ve been to every continent multiple times. Just the best anywhere, period!! Don’t suppose you would have that for delivery to Indiana would you? Maybe by the pound(s)?
Great people and even better food, Mahalo CJ’s. Seriously though, please let me know about that coffee. How do we get some ordered and shipped to Indiana?

​CJ’s Deli & Diner Rocks! Been here several times while visiting Maui – each time we tried different meals and each time we LOVED the food, service and atmosphere. Only suggestion would be to provide regular dinner napkins along with this paper type – because we’re messy!

Aloha and Mahalo from Detroit
