Hello ladies - Help me please

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies,

 

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??

 

Thanks ladies!!

Have you contacted your TA? (Or a TA?) They really would be the best people to talk to about which hotels are best and in your budget.

 

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

Where in Mexico where you looking? I was married in Cabo and it was beautiful.

 

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

I was married on Maui two months ago and it is actually more beautiful than the pictures. We stayed at Lahaina Shores Beach Resort and it was a wonderful condo to stay it our guests stayed at Aina Nalu condos and some of them shared a place so they actually ended up spending about $750.00 p/p for airfare and hotel. I don't think that 1200.00 is too much for them to spend as they will get to go on a great vacation as well as to your wedding.

 

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.

Soooo I got married in November in Maui....and it was amazing! In fact, I was a little scared, but pictures can never do justice to the beauty of the tropical wonderland. I flew in 3 days before the ceremony to deal with wedding details. I visited the ceremony site and reception restaurant. The pictures online were bland in comparison to the actual locations. I was afraid of rain, also. However, my WC vowed they call it sunny Kihei for a reason. I was married on Po'olenalena Beach with the wind whipping through my veil. My reception was on the outdoor patio of the Five Palms Restaurant.

 

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.

So sorry to hear that your site visit was disappointing! I can't help you with what Maui looks like up close and personal as I haven't been there. I am just trusting my gut that this is the place to get married! We will be there in a little over a month and when we return I promise pictures galore!

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!!

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
