6 things to consider when planning your Maui wedding

6. Maui Wedding Reception: The most popular idea we've heard about receptions is a luau. Luau's are fun and they exude aloha to those that are lucky enough to attend one, but we recommend doing that another day. The reason to not choose a luau as your reception is timing. Luau's will start 1 or 2 hours before sunset. We like to perform our wedding ceremonies 1 or 1.5 hours before sunset, especially on the beach, because it starts to cool, people are leaving the beaches and the light softens. If you have to be at a luau at 4:30 and sunset is at 6, we are doing your wedding at 3:30 and it will be hot and there will be plenty of people on the beach. There's a reason everyone on the beach is half naked at 3pm! There is however an opportunity to do a Luau Reception without sweating through your wedding dress and that would be to have a morning wedding around 8am when its still cool and the beach goers haven't hit the beaches yet. If this doesn't work, there are plenty of fine restaurants on Maui and some of them have private rooms or cabanas you can rent for your party. Some of them are close to or on the beaches where your wedding can be held. So ask your Maui wedding professional about these venues and they can surely help you out.
