TTD & boudoir should be fun!! :) We didn't do engagement photos either. The destination wedding was so last minute we had to just send the invitations asap. Haha.

    Have you finished your magazine? I wanna see!! :) I'm attempting so many DIY projects, I hope I'm not biting off more than I can chew. Haha. Here is my list: Invitations -- done Ring bearer pillow -- done To do: Garter Menus Fan programs Favor boxes Name tags Welcome bags What else are you planning to do? Oh, and how are you traveling with your dress?? Carry on? Or paying extra? I'm paranoid the airline will lose it. Haha.

      Hi there! My name is Emily and I just stumbled across this website (and your thread) and was so relieved to see real-life people planning weddings in Hawaii! My fiance and I are planning a May2014 Maui wedding and I've been a tad overwhelmed the last couple of months doing research- I feel like I have looked at the entire internet. At least twice. My plan is to have our ceremony and after return to a private house or resort to have a BBQ and just be with the people who have come to support us.

       

      So far I have basically narrowed down who our photographer will be (Anna Kim) and our ceremony location- Merriman's. It seems like so much but so little at the same time. Are either of you using a wedding planner?

       

      I loved your welcome bag idea- Have you figured out how you are going to get them there yet? Did either of you travel to your location before to speak to vendors and such or have you just done internet research?

        Hello! I felt like there wasn't any other curent brides for Maui either! I'll be happy to help you with whatever I can help you with. The bags, we're not sure how we're getting them there. It might be something that we ship out there because they are huge & so heavy & to bring them in our luggage just might be silly.

         

        I was looking at Merriman's for our wedding ceremony/reception, but I'm told that the West Side is not as lovely as the South Side. Just by looking at pictures from my photographer's site, I could see that myself, though it's more stressful to be staying on the West & having the wedding on the South, I know that it's going to be worth it! But we have eaten at Merriman's & we loved it! 

         

        My "wedding planner" isn't so much a planner as she is a coordinator who helps me with flowers, DJ, venue. but that's part of my package with my photographer. If you've read anything up top or my info, you might know that I have 2 photographers, one from NJ (*where I live*) & one in Hawaii. So the one in Hawaii is the one that is my coordinator!

         

        I have been to Hawaii 4 times, but none of those visits were for the wedding. In fact my last time there was 2 years ago, prior to my engagement & knowing that our wedding would be in Hawaii, so our last trip did not help us.

          Hey Amanda! No worries!! I've been EXTREMELY busy too. Just found out I got into nursing school!! I couldn't be more ecstatic. Everything is coming together this year for me :) I start June 17 (for Summer session) so I don't know how I'm going to get everything done! I need to go into overdrive this month and just get everything finished. Haha. Hope everything else is going well for you and I hope you feel better soon! <3 Can't wait to see how your magazine turns out :)

            CONGRATS! So happy for you about nursing school! One more thing on your plate, but I know you'll be about to juggle it all!

             

            I've been working hard on this magazine & other wedding day necessities but I know I'm missing things & just don't feel like doing them (especially the gym & getting my dressed hemmed oh & FLOWERS!) <~ I know what you're thinking! & You probably want to come through this computer screen & hit me over the head! haha.

            Thanks so much! It's so hard to get in these days so I'm sooo relieved. Omg, I'll choose the flowers for you!! Lol. You know how much I love flowers. Seriously though I feel so unmotivated by these DIY projects now. I know I have to do them... But I just look at the list of things to do and I end up doing something else. Hahaha.

              by all means, give me help with flowers. i'll tell my coordinator what "i want" ;)

              anything on the welcome bags yet? gonna do it?

              i agree with the lack of motivation for these DIY & stuff. I need some time off from work but I really need the money. the FI & I sat down last night & talked about it & it's really going to be tight with up coming weddings & showers we have & days off I need from the bar! & the fact that I don't get paid while away, like he does. I'm looking for a 3rd job! seriously, that's sick! haah

               

              i need to make a list & have someone on top of me with it & bug the crap out of me!
