    Hi Ladies!

     

    My fiance and I are thinking about having our wedding at the Haiku Mill with WC Stephanie Shepherd. It's a little pricey but absolutely gorgeous!

     

    I was originally wanting to plan everything myself (love the planning!) and was just going to hire a day-of wedding coordinator, but the only way I'm allowed to book the Haiku Mill is if I use their on-site coordinator Stephanie who's fee is 20% of all the vendor fees (which makes for a huge price jump :( ).

     

    Before jumping in I'd love to know if anyone has used the venue or is planning there? Or any other information I should know? 

     

    Thanks so much in advance!

        I am in the same boat! Myself and my fiancee are now trying to decide whether to book. 20 % on top of everything really does add up. It is so beautiful though. I just hope they don't work with only really $$$ vendors. I think floral will be ++ expensive too as they import their flowers. We were told to expect to spend a few thousand just on floral. Any advice from previous brides would be appreciated!

          Thanks for the reply Heather! It's great to see someone in the same boat - please let me know if you get any more info from them, have you been talking to Stephanie?

           

          Yeah it does get a lot more expensive this way but I would honestly prefer to pay them a few extra 1000's and handle the planning myself - I'm sure that sounds crazy but I really hate the idea of being limited to vendors. I think I need to call and ask for their vendor list before we decide. I wonder if they would be willing to be flexible at all - from what I've heard it isn't very likely *sigh*

            They sent me their estimated costs list, while most things seem kind of reasonable but what worries me is that all the costs say "starting at" not a range of price (ex. cakes starting at $350), we had been planning on have pretty much the most simple cake ever (no icing or decor) - will they still charge us $350? I wonder. 

             

            Also their policy about liquor really bothers me! If we order alcohol and it doesn't get opened it's still not allowed to be returned, but you need to take it with you. I mean what are we supposed to do with boxes of liquor when we're leaving the island the day after... hmm

              Yes. A valid concern. I think you would have to stay a few more days and have a party with it to get the value. I think the prices listed are the median of what people spend. We have a flowsheet and it looks like $1000 per person is a reasonable estimate as far as overall pricing goes. Re the cake- I think since they choose their vendor they might be pricey for the basic stuff too. Catering there is quite expensive. Im not sure though! Looks like we need some info from someone who has had a wedding there!
