Maui Destination Wedding Ideas – It’s all in the DETAILS!!

April 28, 2020


Having a Hawaii wedding offers endless beauty in itself, but adding a few personalized touches here and there can really highlight your unique love story on your Special Day. We cherish all the little additions our clients have brought to their ceremonies, so we’ve collected some of our favorite Maui destination wedding ideas to share on our blog!

If you’re looking for Hawaii wedding details, we’ve got plenty of ideas and a ton of inspiration from our clients that we LOVE!

Getting Ready

The moments before you say “I do” are destined to become sweet and special memories of your Big Day. Our sister company, Karma Hill Photography, specializes in capturing the details that showcase your personality. From custom bridal robes and t-shirts to personalized hangers, these items make for great photographs to add to your wedding collection!

Another piece that deserves some attention are all the details that shimmer and shine! Of course, the wedding rings are a must, but you put time and thought into earrings and necklaces and everything in between, so why shouldn’t they be memorialized?

Rings and Ring Boxes

You can also bring those gorgeous rings and personalized ring boxes to the beach!! You don’t have to have “getting-ready” coverage to get those sentimental items photographed! Soft white sand and dark rugged lava rocks make for a gorgeous textured background for your Hawaii wedding details!

Bouquet Charms

These one-of-a-kind trinkets are so personal and special, and we absolutely ADORE them! Bouquet charms frame and display the dearest things to your heart, sometimes remembering a loved one and sometimes just sharing your personal journey. Whatever they represent, we want you to know that we treasure them too. We can help you select a custom bouquet with colors and blooms that emphasize the story behind your charms, and the Karma Hill Photography team will take special care to capture every sweet frame, so you can forever cherish these lovely wedding day additions.

These words come straight from the heart!! We love to hear the special sentiments you share on your Big Day, sometimes we even shed a tear or two. Although reading from cellphones definitely does the trick, we adore these special little booklets for sharing your vows. These are perfect Hawaii wedding details to be kept forever and cherished for generations!

These mementos aren’t for everyone, especially if you’re eloping or just having a few guests. But if you do make them, bring them!! We were invited to your wedding, so we need to see all that loveliness that you put so much time and effort into creating! These will keep well in your memory box along with your vow booklets, and will make great additions to your photo collection.

Beach Decor

The beach is the most beautiful backdrop you could ask for, but adding a little decor never hurts! One of our favorite Maui destination wedding ideas is to bring fun little (State-approved) details to decorate the sand–or ask us how we can help spice things up a bit! We can add some flair to your beach wedding if you wish!! Ask us about our styled beach setup options!

Arch Decor

Another great way to add some color and style to your wedding is with a unique arch! Each of our beautiful venues has the option to add a custom arch, and with vivid floral decor or greenery, you’ll have an “I do” backdrop that really pops! While beach ceremonies are always stunning, you have much more flexibility with the decor at a Maui wedding venue!

These little items aren’t always in the cards because you don’t really need them on the beach. We do love them though!! Your kicks really show off your personality. Whether they’re extravagant Badgley Mischka’s or your good ole’ cowboy boots, we want to see them! And our sister company wants to photograph them, of course!

These hidden gems add fabulous flair and we love to get surprise glimpses of them! While pineapples and blue stripes are perfect for the beach, you can’t ignore that sweet little sloth pictured here! Is it just us, or does everyone want a baby sloth?? Having a special someone who’s not afraid to rock the sloth socks is the next best thing!

Groom Swag

This one is immensely important! We all know it! While of course, the bride will be looking her best, we think it’s key to let the guys shine a little too with stylish Hawaii groom wedding attire! Let them bring in some personality with prints, whether it’s all over the outside, tucked inside the jacket, or on a tie or napkin in the pocket adorned by a charm! No matter what your personality is like, we want to embrace it!

Another great way to personalize the Groom Swag is to have embroidery done! This moment is so special and so memorable, and having that stamp of personalization really makes it official. After all, this isn’t just another suit, it’s your wedding gear.

Just Maui’d Signs

I mean, you’re getting married in Hawaii right? So shout it from the rooftops! It might be overused, but that is never going to stop us from using it! You can bring your own personalized Just Maui’d sign with you OR, even better, you can rent our custom circular Just Maui’d sign (pictured in the top right corner here) and save some room in your luggage for memorabilia! Ask your coordinator for details!

Other signage is gorgeous and fitting! And remember, you don’t have to have a reception to have a sign! Just check out the brilliant ways signs were used in the weddings below! One was set up on the beach to welcome guests, and one was even used as a fabulous reminder to the Groom: the little guy in the bottom left holds a sign that reads, “Daddy, Are You Ready? Here Comes Mommy!” It doesn’t get much sweeter than that!

Cake Toppers

These classic add-ons are another great way to bring a personal touch to your wedding day. Whether you’re having a cake cutting at your reception, or adding our “cake-package” option on the beach, a cake topper or personalized cake slicer is always welcome!

Hawaii Destination Wedding Packages

From simple to luxurious, we have a plan for you.


These guest-favorites aren’t always something you’ll need to think about because you may be escaping the wedding planning at home and eloping!! If you do have guests though, a Hawaiian themed favor is fun and special! You could also give a sweet gift to your life partner. Who says only the guests get to indulge in the offerings? Surprising your special someone with personalized letters or sweet mementos will add a touch of spontaneity to your Big Day.

There are so many Maui destination wedding ideas! As long as you incorporate details that you love, the options are limitless.

Here are a few other great concepts that we’ve seen recently: a Pineapple themed guest frame, a beautiful flower girl basket, a book celebrating the life of a lost family member who is with you in spirit on your wedding day, a personal hankie for Dad (tear!), and a custom cake platter with a beautiful quote and your wedding date! The possibilities are endless!! What Hawaii wedding details will you weave into your Big Day?
