Here at Simple Maui Wedding, we specialize in ceremonies! We want to make your wedding day perfect, seamless, memorable, all while keeping it Simple! Now Simple doesn’t mean that you can’t go all out and have extras, it just means we aren’t going to let you stress about it! Whether you’re having a small beach elopement or a large venue ceremony with 75 of your closest family members and friends, there are always Maui wedding add-ons that can make your day extra special!!

We’ve put together a list of the most popular add-ons that we offer at Simple Maui Wedding! However, if you choose to forgo any of these that’s just fine because our packages include everything you will need to have a perfect wedding day! But everyone loves a little something extra — come take a look and see if any of these additions are something to consider for your Big Day!



All of our packages include a beautiful wedding bouquet! We have styles that range from classic white to rustic and colorful. You can take a look at our selection of bouquets here! Although sometimes having something more personalized might better suit you. So we offer custom bouquets starting at an additional $85 upgrade fee.

You send us a picture or tell us what you have in mind, and we’ll check with our fabulous florist and do our best to turn that fantasy into reality! Some specific varietals of flowers are seasonal, but we’ll always do our best to get the look and feel that you are going for. After all, your bouquet will be in just about every picture, so we want it to match you perfectly!!


Who says only the ladies can have gorgeous blooms! Boutonnieres are important Maui wedding add-ons that really tie the groom’s style in with the beautiful bride! We have them created to match the wedding bouquet, which also adds a nice touch to the attire. Boutonnieres start at $45 and bring a pop of color to any groom’s outfit: tux or button-up, these classic touches elevate the occasion to refined luxury.

Flower Crowns

Flower crowns are absolutely stunning, and we love how they look on our gorgeous brides! They can be tropical or soft, petite or large, or even just created with greenery if that’s more your style. Typically flower crowns are created to match your bouquet, but if you’d like something a little different, we can make that happen.

Flower crowns start at $125 and your coordinator will deliver them to the beach or venue along with your bouquet just before the ceremony begins. We will help you get it all situated and looking picture-perfect for your photos!


Flower petals are the perfect addition to any wedding, beach or venue!! We love to set up the perfect shot where your guests are surrounding you and throwing petals into the air in celebration! It’s a special moment and looks AMAZING in photos!! The cost for a bag of petals is $60 and depending on your guest count we sometimes recommend 2 or 3 bags. We always try to leave our beaches just the way we found them so our coordinators will do their best to pick up all the petals after the shot.

Petal Aisle

You can add a gorgeous petal aisle to a venue wedding and reuse those beautiful flowers for a petal toss afterward. Unfortunately, petal aisles don’t really work on the beach because the wind tends to blow them all away, but at venues it’s a perfect way to adorn the grassy aisle. For a full aisle we recommend 5-6 bags of petals.

Flower Circle

Flower circles are a stunning way to add style to your beach ceremony. We are limited by state regulations as to what we can put in the sand, but with flower circles, we’ve got the green light, and we highly recommend them! Check out these beautiful works of art below!

To add a flower circle (or half-circle) to your beach wedding, just let your coordinator know and we will give you a custom quote. It really depends on the thickness and types of flowers so they can range in price, but a good starting point is $500.

~Other Decor Options~

Beach Decor

As we mentioned, we are pretty limited on what we’re able to put into the sand for beach ceremonies. We aren’t allowed to bring chairs or have arches, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add other kinds of fun!

Check out these pineapple and lantern aisles that we’ve done! We can add a driftwood altar for you to stand between or even gorgeous flower arrangements. We have to stay in line with the state restrictions but there are lots of ways to add some personality to your Maui beach wedding. Check with us for custom pricing or let us know if you have any other fabulous ideas for beach decor!

We love to add arches to our venue ceremonies! With most of our venues, we’ve got full creative license to bring any gorgeous arch and floral you can imagine. And these days, the options are endless! A traditional 4 post arch with white fabric and floral is beautiful but we also offer stunning circle arches like the ones pictured below. Or maybe a rustic driftwood arch is more your style.

Whatever you prefer just let us know and we will give you a custom quote with and without floral arrangements. A little tip from us: if you are having a dinner reception after your ceremony those arch arrangements can be re-purposed to add decor to your dinner table. We’ll bring the scissors, and you assign your fabulous in-laws to get those to your restaurant and you’re good to go!

~Ceremony Extras~

Who says a wedding ceremony just means walking down the aisle and saying “I do”? This is your Big Day, don’t be afraid to spice it up a bit! Whether you have guests to entertain or not, we’ve put together some of our favorite ceremony add-on’s to cover all your Hawaiian wedding dreams!

Cake Cutting & Toast Package

We realize that sometimes those traditional elements such as cake cutting and toasts can be left out of Maui weddings on the beach and we wanted to give you the opportunity to bring that back! We offer a delicious white vanilla cake adorned in flowers to match your bouquet as well as an apple cider toast for the two of you to enjoy (We aren’t allowed to have alcohol on the beaches so apple cider will have to do).

Of course our photographers will capture this moment for you, so it also comes with an additional 1/2 hour of photography and 25 more images for just $550. These items are also offered a la carte if you don’t think you’d want both the cake and cider toast.

Musicians are very popular here in Hawaii! Everyone enjoys the music of the Hawaiian culture, and part of that love is sharing it with others. You can add a local ukulele or guitar player for just $350 for 1 hour. They will serenade your guests as they await your arrival, strum lightly during your ceremony, and bless you with a sweet song after you’re pronounced! Some couples even enjoy a first dance to their favorite song. Note: Harpists can be added as well but that pricing varies by location (can you imagine getting that thing down onto the beach?)

Hula Dancers

The perfect addition to that fabulous musician is a one of a kind hula show. These amazing dancers will entertain your guests with beautiful hula. They can even teach your Maui wedding guests the art of hula and have them join in the fun. The price of a hula dancer with a musician is just $525.

Mini Beach Reception Package

If all of these things are right up your alley, we’ve created an add-on for that too! Our Mini Beach Reception package includes a Hawaiian musician and 2 hula dancers for 1 hour, a 1-tier white wedding cake with flowers, an apple cider toast for two, and an extra 1/2 hour of photography. The cost for everything is just $1075.

~Just Maui’d Sign~

You’ve seen all kinds of Just Maui’d signs but never one like this! This beautiful wooden circle Just Maui’d Sign comes adorned in floral to match your bouquet. It’s light and easy to hold and perfect for that one of kind look. Of course, we offer it to all our couples but surely none of your friends will have this sign (unless they book with us too). The cost to rent this beauty is just $95.

~Extra Photography Time~

This is your special day!! You’ve spent time thinking, planning, but hopefully not stressing over this day and we want you to have everything you can to remember it! That’s why photography time is one of the best Maui wedding add-ons. We can document special moments like you getting ready, reception coverage, or even a Trash the Dress session the very next day. Extra photography time can be added for $350 for 30 minutes of coverage and that includes an additional 25 images, or $700 for 1 hour of coverage and that includes 50 additional edited images. Check out your options here for additional photography time:

Getting Ready Coverage

Those moments leading up to your “I Do’s” are so special and if you’re up for it we’d love to have our photographers document it for you. Many of our couples will book an extra 30-60 minutes of photography time to capture those final touches of makeup, you getting into your dress, or sharing a quick hug with family. These moments help pull together the full story of the wedding day and our photographers enjoy capturing them.

Reception Coverage

Sometimes adding on coverage at the tail end of your Maui wedding is more your style. Our photographers can stay past sunset if you would like and capture all the fun that you have planned for your guests. From table decor to first dances all the way to your father’s toast, you can add on photography time to ensure those moments are memorialized as well.

Trash the Dress Session

The day after the wedding tends to be much more relaxing than the wedding day. You can let your hair down, revel in the love you share, and usually the bouquet is still in great shape for photos. We offer a trash the dress session for just $599 on a different day of your wedding. You don’t actually have to “trash your dress” either. You can just add that session to get more pictures of the two of you.

Videography is a very popular Maui wedding add-on. Although we don’t do videography in-house, we do have some amazing vendors that we work with that can create a gorgeous memoir of your wedding day. We usually recommend having the videographer there as long as the photographer so they can work together to capture all the special moments as a team.

Then about 8-12 weeks after your wedding (3-4 for pictures), your video will arrive and you’ll be able to relive that day all over again. Videography starts at $1100 for 1 hour of coverage.

~Wedding Album & Custom Wooden USB~

Our custom designed 10×10 wedding album with thick, lay-flat pages is the perfect addition to your photography collection! You get to highlight all your favorite pictures from your big day and show them off on your coffee table for just $699. If the album isn’t your thing, another great option is our custom wooden USB. We print 2 of your favorite pictures on the outside of this gorgeous box and USB and then load it up with your selected pictures! It’s the perfect keepsake for your Oahu wedding!

We hope this article has helped you discover all the special Maui wedding add-ons you can use to turn your Big Day dreams into a reality! If you have any questions, we’d love to hear from you ~ contact us today!
