  1. We just got married at the Royal Lahaina on April 21st. Our party was on Maui for 8 days and spent a lot of time at the resort. Sometimes it was windy and other times it was more of a gentle breeze. On our wedding day, the wind kept picking up my cathedral veil, but honestly, it just added to the moment. We got married at 3:00 pm. The luau can be noisy, but most receptions are held on the lawn on the opposite side of the resort, which, if this is true for you, the noise can't be heard from. We didn't have our reception there but stayed in an oceanfront suite on the luau side a
  2. Discount Hawaii Car Rental is inexpensive and consistently gets great reviews. Because you do not pay until the day you pick up the car, we did this first and then played with Priceline's Name Your Own Price until we got the bid excepted at the rate we wanted. We are also getting married in April. I suggest you book your rental car as soon as possible, because Maui only has a limited fleet of vehicles and, depending when you are going since Easter and Spring Break are this month, prices will start to sky-rocket as they sell out. When I booked our wedding, the first thing we book
  3. We are paying for everything ourselves. Destination weddings are traditionally non-traditional:)

  8. Congratulations! We will be getting married on April 12th at the Royal Lahaina with our reception at the Feast at Lele:) I booked Dan and Jessica based on reviews. Our flowers will be through our coordinator. Sorry I can't be more of a help at this time since I am still in the planning process myself...
  9. I have not used your source, but can tell you that most vendors take your CC number to charge deposit and payment.
  10. I used to use it, but found that there were too many things that I eat that I had to guesstimate. Otherwise, it is a really great app!
  11. Oooohhh, and to all my Chicago ladies, I just had to say... "GO PACK, GO!"
  12. Welcome Natalie! Congrats on being a home owner! We have started looking, but I don't think we will purchase until after the wedding. Too much stress as it is... I agree with Beachbride. The first thing you need to do is apply all the research you have been doing to a budget. I actually started doing mine on Wedding Wire which has a great template that you can also view and modify on your iphone (if you have one) and then transferred it to an excel spreadsheet later.
