Advice on my Maui wedding

Recommended Posts

Hi! I'm a newbie here and I am planning my Maui wedding in January 2013. I just started the planning last weekend since I was so busy with some exam...I feel that I am a little short of time but since I am not dreaming of a big wedding anyways, I want something simple and elegant. We just set the date yesterday and booked the plane ticket already. I consider myself as an easy bride as I only have two specific requirements about my wedding:


1. I need an arch with flowers. (this one should be very easy to meet)

2. Here is where I need some advice. Ideally I want a beach wedding but I heard that you can't set up arches and chairs on Maui public beaches. So I'm thinking about a private villa. It doesn't have to have a private beach but as long as it has a great view of the ocean and mountains I think I can have the wedding in the backyard. I am looking at some rental villas and they are sooooo pretty...However, most of them require minimum of 5 days of stay, and they ask for around 1000 to 1500 per night for a 3 bedroom. I'd rather have a really luxurious villa for one or two nights just for the wedding and then stay at some other places more affordable. Also, some villas even charge you for having the wedding there (around $2,000). If this is the case, I think I may just rent a place for the wedding. If you have any villa to recommend, that would be great!


It is going to be a very small wedding, around 16 people. I am not worried about catering but how about the music? I've no idea how much it would cost to hire someone to play live music or have some DJ to play the music?...


Any advice would help! Thank you!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
