Hello! My fiance & I have decided to get married in Maui next October because we just loved it there and think all of our guests will too. So, we are taking another trip there in a few weeks to check out some locations and meet with planner(s). What i'm debating is whether I should talk to planners before we go & select one, and then they could help us with our site visits/suggest places etc., or if we should check out the venues were interested in on our own and pick one, as well as physically meet with a few different planners, and select one while we're there. I'm torn because I feel like a planner would be helpful in knowing places they've worked with a lot and that have what we want, but i'm also worried they might try to sway us a certain way if it's someone they have a deal with or just their preferred location or something. So, i'd love to hear everyone's thoughts on what you did and/or what you'd recommend we do. 

 

Thanks!

    If Maui is anything like Cancun (lotssssss of resorts to choose from) I would choose the planner first to help you narrow things down.
