Hello ladies - Help me please

I am new to this section of the board. I am basically starting all over again. I just got back from a site visit to Mexico and I wasn't pleased at all. So, I am now thinking about other locations.
I just did a search and prices were semi reasonable ($1200/person or less) to Maui in December. Does anyone know what the weather is like?
Also, are the resort as nice in person as they are on the picutures? This is the problem I had with Mexico, the pics look great but up close and personal...not so much.
Also, do you think that $1200/person is a lot to ask for people to attend a DW??

I have never been to Hawaii, but I know that it is one of the places that I need to go SOON! Good luck!

We have a few Hawaii brides, and even several TA's that should be able to assist with your questions.

I can't comment on December weather as I was there in February and the weather was perfect for 10 days.
We were actually married on South maui at Secret Cove in Makena. I would recommend that location because they rarely get rain and it was absolutely the most beautiful place I have ever seen.

Half of my guestlist hailed from the east coast. I don't think anyone paid more than $700 RT for airfare. Even though I negotiated a group rate at 2 hotels, most of my guests were able to find vacation rentals for $100/nt and they were really nice.
Also, we rented a convertible Jeep Wrangler for the 13 days we were on the island. We took the top down as soon as we got the car. We only put it up once whilst driving through Hana...and it sprinkled a little. Otherwise, we had perfect weather the whole trip.

For us, as far as the amount people are spending to go (which is right around what you found, for air and hotel), we're finding that most of the very important people in our lives are finding any way to make it. In fact, a lot of people found it a great excuse to see Hawaii when they may otherwise never get to.
Good luck in your new planning! I'm sure you'll find the place that is meant to be!!
