Hawaii Wedding and Vow Renewal

How to Plan a Wedding on Maui?

“How can I plan a wedding from so far away?”

In our extensive experience, we have heard brides ask this particular question once in a while. And that is always a good question!

You, the happy couple, will do very little of the planning because WE will do it all for you. Let your Hawaii Wedding be handled by professionals who have owned and operated Hawaii Wedding and Vow Renewal for years and know exactly what to do to plan the perfect wedding.

To start, we will help you select a package. See pricing of weddings here.

Hawaii Wedding: Why Have it here?

Your Hawaiian wedding, why have it here? As mentioned, we have been named as the best island worldwide by Expedia users and Travel and Leisure Magazine. In fact, Condé Nast Travel magazine named us the best island worldwide for 19 consecutive years!

Additionally, a Hawaii Wedding is a dream of many couples. However, it will be incredibly challenging if you’re not a local or don’t have a network to help you plan your wedding in the Maui area. It is, after all, an unknown location to have for one of the most important events in your life, so far away from home.

So, what can we actually do for you? Well, one of our services is to help you set up your marriage license appointment. We will send you directions and go over them with you. The license form is just one page long, no blood tests are required, just show your photo ID and pay the $70.00 fee (which you can also do online). Moreover, your appointment with the State License Agent is only 15 minutes long.

After the wedding, we will submit the paperwork to the State, and the Hawaii Department of Vital Records will mail you your marriage license about 3 to 4 weeks after your Maui Wedding.

What Does The Minister/Officiate Say At The Wedding?

All of the packages you select with us include everything you will need for your wedding. This includes a Minister/Officiant!

Your Officiant is experienced and likable and we have a variety of ceremonies you can select or even customize, and, of course, you can write your own vows too! You can have a Christian ceremony, a spiritual non-religious ceremony, a short and simple civil ceremony, or, the most popular of all, a Hawaiian wedding ceremony. Some couples like to have the Hawaiian ceremony and end it with a Christian prayer and we can also perform ceremonies from other faiths. Everything is entirely up to you!

After you select your wedding package, venue, and ceremony type, we will take care of the rest. All you need to do is show up and learn more about our wedding ceremonies here.

What are our wedding packages?

Overall, we offer 5 Maui wedding packages to our customers.

Our most budget-friendly package is our first package with $435 + 4% Tax cost in total. We will coordinate your State Licensing Appointment. Next, we’ll provide you with a romantic setting, either on the beach or at the seaside. We have a licensed officiant/minister for your wedding and a ceremony planner to assist you all throughout. There are also two Hawaiian wedding leis to be exchanged during the ceremony, a Hawaiian custom. You also have the choice of ceremony, either Christian, non-religious, or traditional Hawaiian.

While this is a very appealing package, please take note that a professional photographer is not included in this basic. Outside professional photographers are also not allowed, however you can depend on your family members’ cell phones if you prefer.

We’d also like to inform that the maximum guests allowed at your Maui beach wedding is 25 currently. Check out our other packages and what our other offers include here.

A Selection of Wedding Flowers and Bouquets

A wedding is simply not complete without flowers. But as a diverse island rich in various ecosystems, Southwest Maui offers countless wedding flowers and bouquets to all brides.

To help you choose, we will assist you in finding the perfect flower that symbolizes your love.

Other than the traditional bouquets, we also offer Flower Circles. These are made of tropical flowers and add an extra “pop” of color to your ceremony — and will look incredibly good in photos!

Where to Stay on Maui?

Southwest Maui is the best!

Maui is made up of many mini-ecosystems. In fact, Southwest Maui (Kihei, Wailea, Makena, Ma’a’laea) averages only 9” of rain a year. This means that, with the 600 weddings we perform every year, we only average about one rainout wedding a year, making bad weather a completely rare occurrence.

The beaches are also much nicer in Southwest Maui, and you are much closer here to all the attractions (Haleakala Crater, Hana Waterfalls, Airport, etc.)

On the other hand, Northwest Maui (Lahaina, Kaanapali, Napili) averages 18” of rain, and the few beaches are much more crowded, and you are farther from the attractions.

See our Maui hotel page for nearby hotels we like and recommend.

There are plenty of attractions here on Maui as well. You may know the island from its famous beaches, but Maui offers so much more than that. We have plenty of waterfalls that you can hike to get to and swim in some really cool pools. There are also numerous museums and art galleries that are also considered to be among the world’s best. Following that are concerts, where many local and international artists and musicians truly thrive.

Of course, there are also whale watching events to see the majesty of these marine mammals and diving and snorkeling activities you can take to explore our diverse underwater scenes. You can take your partner sightseeing, visit our historic wineries, Or, if you are an adventurous couple, you can also hike in our lush bamboo forests. Otherwise, if you’d like to relax and enjoy the moment, you can also enjoy a nice book, reading it on the beach, shaded by palm tree leaves.

So you see, a Hawaii Wedding is the best because it’s a destination wedding on the best island in the world. Moreover, after saying “I Do”, you can go straight into enjoying your honeymoon, exploring the island, its riches, and what it offers.

If you need any more convincing, you can read our verified reviews from past customers on Google and email or call us at 1-808-891-1200 or 1-800-891-1208.

Congratulations on your future Hawaii destination wedding! We will see you in paradise!
