Maui Beach Weddings Question: What about the weather?
"What do we do in case of rain?" is something we hear very often. Marry Me Maui does about 200 weddings per year. Most of them are beach weddings at various locations around the island. We try to keep the locations near our clients' accommodations but sometimes that's not possible because either the beach is not suitable for a wedding, there's no parking or the beach might be off limits by law (Kaanapali Beach). We are required to pull permits from the state for every beach wedding and they allow us 2 locations. This is usually sufficient to avoid a rain-out in cases of inclement weather.
Maui is home to 10 of the 13 "life zones" on planet earth and also host various micro-climates. The weather in Kapalua can be vastly different than the weather in Lahaina only 7 miles away. Indeed, we have seen rain at DT Fleming and none at Kapalua Bay less than 1 mile away. With smartphones giving us constant updates on everything from our favorite cat videos to the weather, many clients get concerned when they see "rain" for their local Maui forecast. We suggest not looking at the weather. Rainfall totals in most of our passing showers usually total 1/10 inch which really isn't rain, we prefer to call it liquid sunshine. The secondary beach will generally not have rain unless we are in the middle of a winter Kona storm, when the tradewinds stop and the wind comes out of the south bringing moisture with it. Fortunately this happens very infrequently.
Lahaina Baby Beach
Most of Maui's resort areas like Kihei/Wailea or Lahaina/Kaanapali are situated in dry zones that receive only 1 to 10 inches of rain per year, roughly the equivalent of high desert areas in the southwest like Santa Fe NM. Many of us are used to associating Maui with the waterfalls and lush tropical rainforest featured on movies like Jurassic Park and while these areas do exist, they are not anywhere near the major resort areas and we will not be performing any wedding ceremonies there.
Aloha from Maui, home to the most pristine and scenic beaches on Earth. Couples flock from around the world to celebrate their commitment ceremonies to each other on the edge of the warm Pacific. There are so many details to consider when planning your wedding or elopement that choosing a professional wedding planner is an indispensable resource to making your vision real. In our 15 years of experience Marry Me Maui has compiled a list of some of the most important considerations you should discuss with your wedding planner to best experience your elopement or wedding ceremony.
Beach weddings, elopements and vow renewals are very popular with our clients for several reasons; the locations are beautiful, there is no additional fee involved in setting up on the beach except for the state permit which we provide, and a casual beach wedding with your toes in the sand is an experience that only a select few get to experience in their lifetimes. While all the beaches in Hawai…
Sabrina and Jesus enjoyed a beautiful late afternoon Maui wedding ceremony at Poolenalena beach in Makena with Marry Me Maui Wedding Plannes. Our good friend Charles Nahale officiated the event and played some chicken skin music on his ukulele. Poolenalena (Chang's beach) is a huge swath of sand and ocean in spectacular Makena, the "south side" of Maui. Some of the best wedding beaches in Maui are located here and we know them all! From White Rock, and Paipu, to Makena Cove, Marry Me Maui has performed hundreds of weddings at all of them. Some of these beaches are small and intimate, best for just the couple and maybe 3 guests and some are very large and wide with plenty of room for up to 30 people. As always, parking on Maui's pristine beaches is limited so please carpool!
Sabrina and Jesus had almost the entire beach to themselves on this cool and breezy Wednesday afternoon. We want to thank them for a beautiful afternoon doing what we love to do!
