Custom Maui Weddings & Personal Service with VOWS

A Maui Wedding. Your Dream Day Awaits. 

The island of Maui, Hawaii is a place like no other. It’s a wonderful sensory overload of beauty and nature’s wonders. The calming energy is palpable. The island also gifts Maui wedding planners, and their clients, with the most spectacular private estates, resorts, beaches, and landscapes in the world. These gems give us the perfect backdrop for once in a lifetime celebrations.

Planning Maui weddings in true paradise is a gift and a privilege. My favorite moment is at sunset on a wedding day. That time when the sky turns a spectacular combination of colors no one has ever seen before. Guests are in awe and toasting the best time of their lives. I always get a smile from my clients that says: “Thank you. This is the best decision we ever made.” I am honored to share this unforgettable celebration with couples in love, their families, and best friends.  (If this sounds like the dream experience you’re looking for, check out our wedding packages for getting your own custom, Maui wedding.)

The emotion that fuels this most precious time also inspires creativity. A Maui wedding planner can help you hire the best island vendors for:  quality local cuisine, delicious craft cocktails, stunning floral, decorative canopies & lighting, and other specialty décor that keeps up with the mainland trends. Most importantly, I want to include personal touches that reflect the uniqueness of you as a couple.

A Maui wedding planner can give you a celebration that is simple and elegant or totally glam. (Follow our design ideas and inspiration on my personal addiction: Pinterest. ) We also love to incorporate touches of the unique Hawaiian culture, but it’s up to you. It’s your day. I want to give you a wedding that matches your personality as a couple. Each wedding is a new and exciting challenge for me; truly a fresh canvas for painting a couples’ unique story.

Treat you and your guests to an unforgettable celebration/vacation with a destination wedding in Maui, Hawaii!

Sincerely, Katy Roberts “Malama Pono a Hui Ho”

 

Top 10 Things to Remember When Getting Married on Maui

Kiss at Sunset on Maui
  1. All Beaches are Public. No set up of chairs or other décor is allowed beyond flowers you wear or lay on the sand. Floral wedding circles are popular and pretty! Not to worry, many beach front, private venues and hotels have grass that borders the beach. Full wedding set-ups are allowed. You just won’t have your toes in the sand!
  2. There is a 10pm Noise Ordinance under Maui County Law. This means all music of any kind must end at this time. If you know your crew wants to dance til’ dawn, rent a ballroom with doors that shut for your after party!
  3. The Sun Sets Quickly Here! Like a brick! When thinking about sunset photos, make sure you include what we call the “golden hour” as well; the 45 minutes before actual darkness. The light is so rich and flattering and you won’t miss the stunning colors of the sunset that lasts literally only a few minutes.
  4. You Need to Meet with a Marriage License Agent Upon Arrival on Island. Plan ahead for this and arrive at least 3 days prior to your wedding day.
  5. It Does Rain Here, But Rarely. The South (Kihei/Wailea) and Westside (Lahaina/Kaanapali) of the island is the driest and your best bet for a rain-free wedding day. Northend and Upcountry are lush, green and gorgeous for a reason. Always have a Plan B location and/or tent lined up.
  6. It is Humid Here, but not unbearable except for a few days in August/September. We love it for our skin and there’s a true calming affect once you have a couple days to get used to it. Don’t plan to wear heavy fabrics on your wedding day, however. This isn’t the place for a ball gown or black suit.
  7.  You WILL Burn in 2.2 Seconds. Don’t take this lightly. Bring loads of sunscreen! Maui is very close to the equator and I’ve seen some incredibly painful and unsightly burns. Use at least a 30 spf if you are at the beach and more if you are on a boat. Don’t be a lobster and sore on your wedding day. You will regret it.
  8. Venues and Vendors are Limited. Don’t delay in signing your contracts. Dates book up fast at our limited number of venues and the best vendors go quickly. I advise you book everything at least 6 months in advance to get your first choices.
  9. Get Married on a Weekday. Don’t feel like you need to get married on a Saturday on Maui. Everyone is on vacation and here for several days anyway. If you choose a Monday-Thursday wedding date you are more likely to get your first choices and in some cases, save money.
  10. Embrace the Aloha! This is place where time slows from the frenetic pace of the city – why we live here. Things take a bit longer, people take a little more time to get back to you, cars drive slower. It’s the charm of the island. Embrace it or you will go crazy! It usually takes a couple days to get off your usual high, but you will love how it de-stresses and calms you and your guests.
