    Hi everyone!!!

    I just came across this site and think its fabulous!  Me and my fiance recently got engaged and are planning on getting married in Maui next January.  I got an awesome wedding planner-Kara from youralohaweddings.com  There are three places I'm considering, has anyone heard any positives or negatives about these, Wailea Marriott, Makena Beach and Golf Resort and Honua Kai.

      Congrats on your engagement!  Maui is a beautiful place!  The Marriott at Wailea is absolutely beautiful.  The grounds are beautiful and there are many different places to get married.  Makena Beach is also really nice, but can be super busy with weddings, and also there are no chairs or anything allowed on the beach, therefore, your guests all have to stand!  Good luck choosing, and happy planning:)

            HELLLO BRIDES!

            Looks like I finally joined the tribe of brides to be! Im super
            excited, nervous & already stressing as Im sure you are all as well,

            Since my fiance and I took our first vacation together to Mexico and
            were engaged in Mexico, we have decided to wed in Mexico as well! I
            had the opportunity to do one site vist while we were there during our
            engagement week last month and have been doing TONS of research on
            similar boutique hotels in the same region.

            Our site visit was at Ceiba Del Mar. We met with Diana and she gave us
            a tour of the resort and explained our options to us. I loved the
            authentic and intimate feel of the hotel and am considering it as one
            of my options. I have also researched a few other resorts that I would
            GREATLY appreciate your feedback on ladies:-)

            2. The Tides Riviera Maya
            3. Banyan Tree Mayokoba
            4. Le Reve Hotel & Spa

            Help! Help Help! & THANKS!
