Newbie Maui Bride - Elopement next month -- need help fast!
Posted 07 February 2009 - 01:47 AM
I've narrowed it down to these four wedding planners:
White Orchid Wedding
A Paradise Dream Wedding
Aekai Beach Weddings
Precious Maui Weddings
(Of course, I am open to additional recommendations). I'm very drawn to Gordon Nash's photography (PDW) but I have a feeling that he personally would cover big-ticket weddings with a big budget and not a piddly little intimate one like mine.
Also, what would you recommend in terms of the length of a beach wedding dress? I initially was planning to go with a tea-length dress, but I have a scar on my ankle that I'd like to hide so now I'm going with a long dress, but without a train. Any thoughts?
Thanks for your two cents! I look forward to benefiting from your advice!

Susan on the forum used A Paradise Dream Wedding, I would check with her. I did hear great things about them.
I looked into WOW (White Orchid), they were great but alittle out of my price range.
I'm also getting married in Maui on the beach. I got a chiffon empire dress of the rack at David's Bridal. I would check there. The reason I picked this style was the dress is very light. No bustle and I'm having it altered so it will just hit the floor.

We used A Dream Wedding Maui Style - A Full Service Wedding Coordinator on the Island of Maui as our planners.. they did a great job

Depending on flight costs from Chicago, it may be cheaper to bring a local photographer along with you to Maui. We'll be in Maui March 3-14th and have a few dates still available. If you're interested, PM us and hopefully we can help you out.
Best of luck!

I didn't have Gordaon as my photographer (he was already booked when I reserved my photographer) however he does have some VERY talented photographers. I had both Arien & Eric shooting my wedding & I LOVE my pictures. I can send you a link to my proofs site if you want to take a look to see if you like his style.

When you get back, could you please post a review about the Maui Prince? We are considering staying there the night of the wedding (and one more night).
