How many people do you expect to attend your wedding? Are you looking for formal, quick, relaxed, convenient? All of these things played a huge part in our location choice, and we finally decided on the Olowalu Plantation (even though I fell in love with it when I first looked at it). Because we expect around 50 guests, it was hard to find a location to accommodate such a "large" party. We could have gone to one of the restaurants like Seawatch or resort like the Westin, but I figured people are travelling so far to come that we would rather have a ceremony and reception in one private location instead of a public one in multiple venues. Granted, it is a little more expensive, but the thought of people watching us that we didn't know was a bit difficult to fathom.
Also, we decided on a wedding planner, Blue Sky Weddings. Even though I like to do a lot of things myself, we figured it would be best to have someone local to arrange the necessities and keep everything in order.
Hope this helps!

You're really lucky to have found BDW. You will find a lot of ideas whether you are a DIY type or just need inspiration. Personally, I started working with the Four Seasons and really enjoyed my experience with their WC. In the end, I moved off hotel property due to budget and utilized a Lisa with Enchanted Weddings. She was referred to me by 3 Maui brides.
Enchanted Weddings of Maui - Welcome!
I gave her a long list of things I wanted and she came back with a few options for my every detail (i.e. flowers, cake, reception sites, music, centerpieces).
Have fun and good luck planning

One thing to keep in mind when you're getting married at a resort is to check with them to make sure they allow outside WC. Many of them do, but some may have restrictions or have a preferred vendor list that they want you to choose from. So just ask that question early on before hiring on outside cooridnator so that you don't get stuck in the end.
