In addition to requesting more information about the reception dinner menus from a recent catered Maui wedding, readers asked for more details about getting married in Maui. They wanted to know how to keep the wedding on time while providing dual roles as the wedding coordinator and chef catering the wedding reception dinner. Since most Maui wedding planning details are completed ahead of time, only the day of coordination and catering remains to be accomplished. A well-organized wedding timeline shared with all participants is essential to a successful wedding without unnecessary delays and waits. Keep reading for more Maui wedding planning details and the timeline from a West Maui wedding in Lahaina.
Regardless of catering a Maui wedding reception or providing full service wedding planning, we always utilize a detailed wedding timeline to ensure the various related events of the wedding ceremony and reception happen on time and without impacting the rest of the couples special celebration. When serving as the chef supplying catering for a wedding reception dinner arranged by a Maui wedding planner or a do it yourself wedding coordinator, I request the wedding timeline well in advance of the wedding date. If arrangements for tables, chairs, serving tables or lighting were overlooked, we note it or arrange for missing Maui wedding rentals. Ill offer advice or share thoughtful recommendations if timing issues are detected likely to impact other scheduled wedding events or to delay my Maui catering service. Dont let overzealous wedding photographers hijack your wedding because the Maui sunset makes an amazing background – nobody wants to eat cold food at a wedding reception dinner! Ask us or your wedding planner for recommendations on how to choose a Maui wedding photographer. The images from this wedding were captured by Meew Meew Studios.
When we plan or coordinate in addition to catering, we share the detailed wedding timeline with the wedding couple and each member of the wedding party to ensure everyone knows what will happen and when it happens. To avoid delays, each photographer, officiate, musician and member of the wait staff gets opportunity to ask questions about the timeline. Other wedding services are coordinated to deliver in advance of guest arrival and well before the wedding ceremony begins.
For this particular event in Lahaina, Maui wedding rentals included delivery of long farm style wedding dinner tables, bamboo chairs with matching utensils, color coordinated linen service, euro wedding lights, and a few other wedding accessories. Schedules were coordinated for the wedding flowers to be delivered. Our friends at Maui Wedding Cakes delivered a gorgeous wedding cake with tropical flowers and delicious cupcakes as well as set up a tantalizing cupcake tree before the wedding guests arrived.
