Feb or May?

Recommended Posts

Hello, all

 

We are from Seattle area, and have never been to Hawaii.

 

We originally were thinking of February 9, 2011, then I heard weather isn't the best around that time. The way I imagine my wedding day, it would have blue sky, and reception around sunset hour. As soon as I heard that it might be raining reason around that time which mean dark sky, we are thinking maybe we should postpone it to beginning of May. Anyone had wedding in Maui in February? How was the weather then? Any advice? Looking forward to hear from you ladies

I have been to Maui a few times and I have noticed there is a big differerence in amount of rain and sunshine in certain months. I found that January had much more rain and way less sunshine then April did. As well, I found that January tended to be a bit busier with more people then April. Do you know what area of Maui you are interested in getting married? We always stay in the Wailea area and that area tends to get a bit less rain then areas such as Lahaina. Another thing to consider is temperature. Temperature during February will be a bit cooler then in May.

Thank you Jay45 for your response. We are thinking of Wailea / Makena area. Although I haven't figure out the location yet. I really liked the White Orchid Beach House, however, their planner service is very pricy. I am looking to see if there are similar houses around that area with a beach front which I can rent for a wedding.

We were married in Maui this past February and the weather was beautiful - high 70s to low 80s each day. The only time we saw any precipitation was at the top of the inactive volcano (Haleakala National Park). I had the opposite experience as jay45. We found that West Maui (Lahaina, Kaanapali) was much sunnier and drier than the Wailea/Makena area. In particular, there is a long, narrow cloud that comes off of Haleakala and stretches over the Big Beach and Makena area extending over the ocean. We tried to snorkel twice in that area and it was cloudy and cold (high surf too). We turned around and headed back to West Maui to beautiful weather conditions. Our wedding planner was Deanne from Precious Maui Weddings and our reception was at Plantation House.

I should also add that our ceremony was at 4PM and reception at 6PM (sunset is around 6:30 that time of year). That schedule worked out perfectly and we had plenty of time for photos in several locations. Good luck!

I've been to Maui in late February, early March, April, May and June. The weather in Maui only varies a few degrees throughout the year. I actually found that I liked the weather better in Feb, March and April than in May and June. It didn't rain at all while I was there in Feb, March or April (and actually rained some this past May when I was there) and was less windy (when I went in June a year ago it was hot and really, really windy). I think it all depends on the week, though. If I had a choice I would have planned by wedding for March or April - since I thought the weather was so great those months. However, with school, etc, I'm having to plan it in August. It seems to be much more expensive to fly to Maui during the summer months.

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
