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!

    • Let me know if it works. I'm really curious to know
    • I believe that it is absolutely not important what kind of gift, the main thing is that it was presented with all heart. For example, recently my friend had an anniversary and I gave him an original painting in word art style. He really liked it, as I found the right words. Hmm .. Finding out where their first kiss was will be a real problem, but I think it can be solved. Just arrange a walk with them and ask more about how they started dating, where they first met, etc. They themselves will reveal all the secrets to you. I hope you can make an amazing gift for them. Good luck !!
