Choosing the perfect Maui wedding venue can be exciting, but there are many things to consider such as budget, location and so much more. From stunning oceanfront wedding venues to private Maui wedding venue choices, Maui offers a plethora of options for your special day.

Let’s go over several key factors that you need to consider to ensure that you choose the right venue that suits your style, meets your needs, and falls within your budget.

Maui Wedding Venue Wrap up...

1. Wedding Budget

The first point on our checklist, and possibly one of the most crucial, is your budget. Budget will essentially dictate all other aspects of your wedding, such as number of wedding guests, wedding vendors and which Maui wedding venues fall within your spending limit.

It's important to have a clear idea of how much you're willing to spend before you start looking at venues. Top wedding venues such as Four Seasons Resort Maui, Olowalu Plantation House, Wailea Beach Resort or King Kamehameha Golf Club can be quite expensive. Also, there are other venues not at a resort that can be a far less expensive option.

Finding wedding packages that include most things you want can be a great way to trim costs as well. 

Another vital factor is the guest count. The venue you choose should comfortably accommodate all your wedding guests. You don't want your guests to feel cramped, but you also don't want the venue to feel too large for your party. 

For smaller budgets, you can opt for a smaller guest count with just loved ones and closest family members in attendance. Also, there are other venues not at a resort that can be a far less expensive option for ceremonies with minimal guests. 

Decide if you want an oceanfront wedding with stunning views, a ceremony in a lush tropical garden with palm trees, or perhaps with panoramic ocean views with a cocktail hour and a champagne toast. Maui has it all!

Each Maui wedding venue will have different offerings that can look drastically different. Most Maui wedding venues will have a great deal of photos to view. This way you can see if the location with work with the style of ceremony look you are going for. Simple Maui wedding has hundreds of blog posts from each venue they work at so use these as a great reference for what your wedding day will look like. 

Check if your preferred venue is available on your chosen date. Top wedding venues in Maui can be booked out nearly 2 years in advance. The best wedding venues fill up fast so make sure and book as soon as you have your wedding date established.

It may be a good idea to make a list of your favorite wedding venue locations. That way your wedding planning company can reach out and check date availabilty right away. 

Does the venue provide chairs, tables, linens, and other essentials? Can you have a wedding cake delivered or made on-site. Is there separate outdoor event spaces for a reception area or bar services.

These are just a few of the questions you may need to know about the Maui wedding venue you choose. Other popular wedding questions are: does the venue allow a photo booth, what are the options for floral arrangements or are their additional services other couples often choose. Paying attention to each of the details that are important to you will ensure you get what you want for your wedding day. 

Consider how easy it will be for your guests to get to the venue. This can be very important if you have elderly or mobility challenged guests.

For example a beach wedding would not be ideal for guests in wheel chairs or those needing walkers. Thinking about parking facilities and proximity to accommodations are also important accessibility factors when considering different outdoor space options.

If you're planning an outdoor wedding, have a backup plan in case of rain. Some Hawaii wedding venues offer both indoor and outdoor areas. You may want to book in a location like Wailea, Maui where it rarely rains receiving only 15 inches of rain annually. This won't guarantee it doesn't rain on your outdoor wedding, but drastically decrease the chances of bad weather. 

It's also important to consider the catering options, or any restrictions the venue may have on outside food and beverage. Wedding venues at resorts like the Four Seasons will have full catering services and bartending services. Private estates like Olowalu Plantation can be more planning as catering and a bar service will need to be brought in if allowed at the wedding venue.

One aspect many clients should make sure and review is the venue rental contract. Most Maui wedding venues have a non-refundable deposit, so if you decide to cancel your destination wedding you will often not get a refund for your venue deposit. So check on the policies that go with each event space so you know what to expect. 

In conclusion, choosing wedding venues in Maui requires careful consideration of several factors. But if you utilize this list, you'll be well-equipped to make an informed decision. Remember, at the end of the day, the most important thing is that you and your partner are happy with the choice. After all, it's your special day, and it should be everything you've dreamt it would be.
