You want your wedding day to be perfect, but the pressure often leads to procrastination and anxiety.
If the thought of piecing together an expensive, complicated event has you waking up in a cold sweat read our 7 favorite reasons all-inclusive wedding packages in Hawaii make complete sense.
1. The Perfect Maui Wedding Location
Nothing makes a better start to your dream wedding than a dream location. Maui is consistently ranked as one of the best islands in the world. With luxurious resorts, gorgeous sprawling beaches alongside aquamarine waters, and lush tropical jungles, it’s a vacationer’s paradise.
The beautiful weather of our tropical home makes it the perfect location to host gorgeous weddings outdoors year-round. For smaller groups (up to 30 guests) you can enjoy an ocean-side Maui beach wedding location on one of our famous beaches. Larger groups or for those who prefer a more private location, we recommend several amazing Maui wedding venues with gorgeous settings and amazing quality and service.
2. Getting Into Vacation Mode Early
One of the best features about an all-inclusive wedding package in Maui is it eliminates the stress of having to juggle the different vendors and aspects of putting together your perfect day.
Your wedding package will already include your minister, photography, floral, and location selections and of course your professional wedding planner. The timeline will be orchestrated by your seasoned Maui wedding coordinator, who will be in touch throughout the entire process.

3. Professionals in Control

4. All-Inclusive Maui Wedding Packages are Budget Friendly
One of the more surprising things to discover about a destination wedding is how relatively inexpensive it is compared to traditional options!
When envisioning a wedding in a luxurious tropical destination, it’s easy to imagine an equally fancy price tag. But according to the Knot’s destination wedding cost report in 2016, the average for a US domestic wedding was close to $35,000! The average cost for a destination wedding was $28,0000 according to the same report.
Hawaii weddings have great flexibility for price-points of packages. Locations options can be as extravagant as your own private venue, or as simple as public beach location with that amazing Hawaii beach look. When budgeting all-inclusive Maui wedding packages offer a great way to know upfront what the exact cost of your wedding will be.
Knowing your base wedding cost is important so you know if you have room for add-ons and customizations to make your ceremony truly yours.
5. An Intimate Wedding Event
Because of destination weddings lower than average guest count, it is possible to have a truly intimate ceremony with a destination wedding.
Technology makes it possible to still connect with the people who are unable to make it, spanning the ocean with live-streaming and shared photos of the beautiful ceremony and gorgeous surroundings.
The intimacy of a destination wedding in Hawaii opens up a great opportunity to spend quality time with guests and family. In the days leading up to the ceremony you can truly bond with the ones you love –exploring the island, catching sunsets together, and enjoying delicious meals at some of the islands best restaurants.

6. Trusted Wedding Vendor Connections
Having a coordinator ensures that not only are you dealing with trusted vendors with proven track-records of excellence, but you are getting the best price.
Because of wedding coordinators business volume, they’re often able to secure special rates and pass the savings on to you. Well, know wedding coordinators spend years handpicking the best musicians, videographers, florists, photographers, and ministers.
Wedding planners have professional relationships with vendors, and can help you find the perfect fit for everything from a minister’s ceremony style to the amount of photography time to book depending on the number of guests attending!
7. A Truly Memorable Wedding Experience for All
Vibrant aquamarine morning ocean colors and pastel-hued sunsets not only make for stunning wedding photos but enhance the memories you create with family and friends during your destination wedding.
Smaller guest counts of destination weddings lend themselves to real closeness and personal connection with the bride and groom, and ceremonies are often emotionally charged and engaging. A Maui Wedding is truly an experience you’ll never forget.
Getting married in Hawaii you will always give you a great excuse to return to Maui on a romantic getaway or wedding anniversary.
Why No Airfare Included?
Travel to Hawaii varies so much from all over the globe, it would be impossible to offer a one size fits all package that would include airfare. Also, most wedding professionals in Maui are small businesses and don’t have the pull that a major resort would to get special deals from airlines. Beyond the logistical aspects, there are also issues of quality to consider.
All-inclusive wedding packages in Hawaii that include airfare don’t really exist (or are few and far between). One of the major reasons for this is because of the difficulty of ensuring good customer experience.
You could have an amazing wedding, but a miserable flight experience, and it could lead to a bad review of the company just because the flight was part of the entire package. Because of the lack of control over the customer experience created by the airlines, this is one of the reasons that all-inclusive Maui wedding packages usually don’t include airfare. A small business can’t afford to risk its reputation with vendors they can’t guarantee the quality of.
Start Your Adventure in Paradise
With so many pros stacked up, it’s unsurprising that one in every five couples now choose a destination wedding over one at home (1in 5 weddings are now destination)!
All inclusive Maui wedding packages are the ultimate way to remove the guesswork and stress out of putting together the perfect island wedding of your dreams.
Why wait until your honeymoon to sink your toes in the sand and feel the sun on your face when you could start your life together in one of the most beautiful spots in the world?
Imagine waking up surrounded by the ocean and palm trees, knowing the details of your ceremony have all been taken care of and you just need to relax and enjoy your wedding day.
