from the Consultants at
Romantic Maui Weddings
As wedding consultants here on Maui we have been helping couples plan
their weddings since 1988. When we first started there were only 3 wedding
companies. If you found our page on the internet you are well aware that
there are a few more now. we would venture to say that there are probably
200 if we count all the Ministers, Photographers, Activity Planners and
Hotel Convention people that arrange weddings as well.
If you are spending all that money to fly here and stay in a resort in
the most beautiful place in the world, we would like you to consider a few
things. Especially if this is a once in a lifetime trip. We believe that
the weddings we have here on Maui are the most incredible weddings in the
world. They are truly a spiritual experience! When we are on the beach at
sunset and we look out over the gorgeous blue water at other islands off
in the distance, we all agree that this must be heaven. If you have been
here before, you know exactly what we are talking about. We love what we
do (can you tell). We are very fortunate to live here and be able to help
people with the happiest day of their life.
We want everyone to go home from Maui with the best wedding experience
that is possible. Believe us when we say that it saddens us when we hear
stories (and we do hear them) about couples who did not go home with any
photos of their gorgeous wedding because they opted to go with a $100 photo
package. Or even worse, a wedding where the minister did not show up. Yes
folks, these are true stories. Our major concern is that these cheap, fly-by-night,
so called wedding companies will give Maui Weddings a bad reputation. That
would be very unfortunate, because they can be the best.
One more thing I have to add here is that we are very sorry but A Romantic Maui Wedding can not be held responsible for any natural disasters or disruptions in planning that are out of our control.If our vendors arrive at your wedding to do their jobs they have to be paid. We will always go out of our way to help you but if for some reason you do not arrive for your wedding you will still have to pay for it or any other services that we have arranged for. We actually had someone that could not get married because he was already married, just to give you an example. Traffic could make you late or sea sickness could be a problem if you have a wedding on a boat. We will always try to help you in every way that is possible. Sometimes we do advise against certain plans that our couples want because we know that there could be difficulties. Please try to understand why we are giving you our advice. After over 7000 weddings we have had just about every experience you can imagine. Always keep your cell phones accessable and check your room phones for messages, especially the day of the wedding. We do not tell you this to be mean but to help you understand that sometimes no matter what, things can go wrong. We always try to prevent the problem before it happens.
The Team at Romantic Maui Weddings
P.S. We are often asked by our weddings why we will not take chairs or arches out on the beach. Several have told us that they saw web sites that did offer this service. We have to explain that these things do interfere with the public's use of the beach. A few years ago we had to file a law suit against the State of Hawaii for the right to do weddings on the beach. It was settled out of court that the beaches were public and the weddings could continue but it has also been made clear that the weddings should not interfere with the rest of the public's use. We feel very strongly that this is the way it should be. The wedding coordinators that do this will eventually ruin it for all of us! It is because of these same wedding coordinators that we now have to get a permit every time we do a wedding on a beach and some beaches have been restricted from any weddings at all. If you want the traditional isle and an arch or chairs please consider a private location! There are many available and some are quite inexpensive.
