    Hey fellow Maui brides:

    For those of you who are planning a wedding in Maui and those of you have had your wedding in Maui, what was the cost for you wedding (the ceremony and reception, not the travel costs)? And where was it?

    Thanks.

      We are planning on around 40 guests.

      For our ceremony (at a private location) the total cost ended up at about $1450. We still have to order chairs at $5.50 a piece when we have a final count. We are anticipating about $200 for that. This includes the basic things you would want at your wedding, but nothing over the top. It includes flowers, musician, photography, on site wedding coordinator...etc

      We are having our reception at a restaurant on the beach. We are anticipating that to be about $1500-$1600. This would be a 3 course dinner for everyone, only including coffee and tea for drinks.

      So we are guessing about $3200 for everything. We still might add in a couple rounds of drinks and dessert at the restaurant, but we haven't decided yet on those things. The drink prices in Maui seem to be pretty high so I'm not sure exactly how much that would cost.

        Oh I forgot location.

        We are getting married at Meriman's Kapalua. The site fee for that is $500. I included that in my total price above. It is a big enough area for a 40 person wedding.

        The reception is at Duke's. It's a restaurant on Kaanapali.

            Hi There,
            I'm getting married in Maui in October and I had the same question as you when I first started. Our ceremony is at Kula Botanical Gardens. You have to pay $8 per person for admission and chairs are $2.50 each. We got a package through Precious Maui Weddings and the total package came to about $1400. This includes the minister, 2 wedding leis, my bouquet, MOH Bouquet, 2 boutineirs, photographer & photos, hair and make up in room for me and MOH, entrance for 23 people, chairs and set up fee. Our reception is at Ruth's chris steakhouse. Wed have a set menu which is $69 per person. Its includes appetizer, salad, entree and desert. We're expecting about 23 people so with tax and tip the reception will cost about $1930. So total we're spending about $3330.

                I also used Precious Maui Weddings for my wedding package. I did the reception on my own. My price came out pretty similar to this one (sorry for so many posts! I guess I'm forgetfull and keep having things to add..)
