Newbie to get Maui'd

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

congrats to everyone who's getting married and would like to introduce myself here. My fiance and I are getting married in about a year from now in Maui, Hawaii. We're in the beginning phase of the planning but already feel overwhelmed by the information received. I have so many questions I don't even know where to start but I do have a few questions top of my head.

 

All the resorts such as Four Seasons, Ritz, Hyatt, assign a wedding coordinator. Does it make sense to have another wedding planner of my own? What are their fees? Any recommendations of a wedding planner who resides in Maui is appreciated!

 

Thanks everyone!

Thanda

Congratulations Thanda! There are a lot of us who have used several different wedding planners in Maui. I think the majority of us were very pleased with their services. Several of us have review written, so I would suggest that you take a look around in those threads for some inspiration. :) We used A Paradise Dream Wedding & were so pleased, but there are so many other great options out there. If you come across one that interests you, just ask us (we may have some inside scoop for you). cheesy.gif

Welcome Thanda! I'm getting married in Maui this June. The coordinator I am using is Deanne of Precious Maui Weddings, Maui Weddings Hawaii Wedding Packages Hawaiian Weddings Planner

I am from a small town and got the recommendation from someone we know well. Thus far, Deanne has been awesome. She's taken care of so many things and even before we finalized using her services, she provided so much information, quotes, tips, etc. She's always gotten back to me in a timely manner with answers to questions and such. Actually, we originally had emailed 3 others as well as Deanne and she was the only one who responded!

I'm not sure if another planner would be necessary if you go through a resort. I imagine not, but again, I really don't know. We're getting married at the Seawatch Restaurant. They, too, have a coordinator on site, but I have found it much easier to work with Deanne as we are having the reception at a different location.

I, too, was very overwhelmed with all the different options, but I promise, it will get easier! It just takes time to figure things out. You'll find a lot of info and assistance on this forum!!

Congratulations and happy planning!

Welcome to the forum! Having a coordinator of your own is great! But, must fit your budget to make sense. You may want to discuss the role of the resort's coordinator and how much they will take care of for you - and how many of the services the resort is responsible for providing. Typically, your own coordinator will be in contact with all your vendors prior to the wedding to make sure everyone is on the same page - they'll also make sure the day flows well, and that the reception doesn't have any akward lulls.

 

Good luck with your planning!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
