How to Obtain a Maui Wedding License and Certificate


Maui RingDetails, details, details. Planning a wedding is all about details — the dress, the flowers, the cake; we could go on forever. However, there are two details you definitely don't want to overlook — getting your marriage license and certificate. Many people don't realize that there is a difference between the two, so let's take a minute to clarify each.

Your License to Happiness

A marriage license allows your Maui wedding to take place. Once you receive the license you can get married at any time within 30 days (after which it becomes null and void, and you'll have to reapply). When working with us we will help you through the process otherwise, here are a few tips.

Luckily, a wedding planner could probably complete this process in his/her sleep, allowing you to focus on other things. If you're not working with a planner simply call the Maui Department of Health Office at (808) 984-8210 to find a marriage license agent.

Congrats — You Passed!

About 60 — 120 days after your "I Dos" you'll receive a certified copy of your marriage certificate, which is proof that your marriage is legal. Contact the Hawaii Department of Health if you need a copy sooner or for a replacement copy. Lots of newlyweds request an additional copy to include in a scrapbook or even to stick on the fridge! Expeditied copies require an aditional fee. Our wedding packages also include a decorative wedding certificate.

Ready to Take the Plunge?

There is nothing more magical than a Maui wedding. Contact us today for some planning tips and/or for more information on how to obtain a Maui wedding license. We love taking care of the details for our soon-to-be-newlyweds!

How to Obtain a Beach Permit for Your Maui Wedding


Getting Married On a Maui Beach? You'll Need a Permit For That.

Maui beach WeddingIf you have ever been to Maui then you know all about the beautiful beaches. In fact, Maui has more than 50 beaches - many of which have been recognized as some of the most stunning in the world. It's no surprise then why so many couples choose to say their "I Dos" on Maui's breathtaking beaches. However, don't forget about one crucial detail — obtaining a beach permit (also known as a Right-of-Entry Permit). This is different from a marriage license, which allows you to get married on Maui. Rather, a beach permit is a legal document that allows us to hold an event on unencumbered state beaches. Some beach areas such as the entire Kaanapali resort is off limits to beach weddings. All of our wedding packages include beach permits. Remember structures such as chairs, tables and arches are not permitted at the beach. Exceptions are made for guests with physical limitations. Posession or consumption of alcohol is strictly prohibited by the state at beach weddings.

Tips for the Do-It-Yourselfer

If you are solely planning your wedding, then here are some tips when obtaining a beach permit via Hawaii's Department of Land and Natural Resources.

For questions regarding the Right of Entry Beach Permitting Program, contact the Department of Land and Natural Resources at 808-587-0439, or Contact us and we will take care of everything.

Let Us Take Care of It

Working with a wedding planner? Then you can kick back and enjoy another mai tai because we do all of the legwork in obtaining a beach permit for your Maui wedding. The hardest part may just be deciding which of Maui's gorgeous beaches you want to get married on! This predicament is also a reason to consider working with a Maui wedding planner — We will listen to your requests, get to know your personalities, and suggest several beaches that would be perfect for your big day. Plus, we know where Maui's most popular beaches are and where the most secluded beaches are (oh and we probably know how to get to each and every one). Ready to say "I Do" to a wedding planner?

Lodging Options | Maui Beach Weddings and Events


Choosing Where to Stay During Your Maui Wedding

When traveling to Maui visitors have no difficulty finding a place to stay, as there are literally hundreds of options on the island. When planning your Maui wedding, however, consider the following.

Maui WeddingWhen you have most of the answers to these questions start to shop around. Depending on the date of your wedding, most resorts and hotels allow you to block off a certain number of rooms for guests. There are beachfront hotels as well as hotels a few miles from the beach (which are usually cheaper). You can even find hotels further away from the action located in a secluded rainforest such as in Hana or upcountry Maui. Alternatively, you can stay in a condo, which you can find availability for through a variety of online vacation rental websites such as Craigslist and VRBO (vacation rental by owner). Don't forget to mention your Maui wedding! Lots of hotels and rental owners offer discounts or can upgrade you due to your upcoming nuptials. We can connect you with an exprerienced travel consultant specializing in wedding parties and group discounts.

There are also some plantations and estates on Maui that make wonderful Maui wedding locations. Several of these locations also offer lodging which is not only convenient but also memorable, as many of the homes are historic.

Book Ahead

Whatever type of lodging you decide on, remember to book ahead since Maui is such a popular tourist destination. Obviously, the more flexible you are with dates the better deals you can obtain. Remember that nearly all lodging is less expensive on Maui during off-peak times — April, early May, October, early November and late January. If you're trying to save money then definitely consider traveling during these times. Last but not least, ask a hotel or rental owner if there are one or two weeks that they would like to get booked. Believe it or not, owners would rather give you a deal and know that the location is booked for an entire month as opposed to having three weeks booked in April and two in May. The lesson? It never hurts to ask.

Maui Wedding Ministers and Ceremony Types


Choosing the Right Man or Woman For the Job

Maui WeddingChoosing the right minister or officiant for your wedding is an important detail. Do you want someone to throw in a bit of humor during your ceremony or someone who sticks to the script? Do you want someone who incorporates traditional Hawaiian culture or someone who offers a religious ceremony? Ideally, you want to meet with several officiants and choose the person who meshes best with you and your partner's personalities. Finding the right officiant can be difficult, however, if you are thousands of miles away. You can begin the process via an Internet search, but nearly all Maui wedding planners know dozens of licensed officiants — one of whom is sure to be a great match with you and your significant other.

A Maui Civil Ceremony

A civil ceremony on Maui can be performed on the beach, at a hotel, a plantation, etc. Many of the scripts include a lei exchange and references to Hawaii. Civil ceremonies can be a small, intimate affair or a larger event with lots of friends and family present — it's up to you. Most officiants will already have some scripts for you to choose from that can be tweaked to express a couple's uniqueness.

Religious Ceremonies

While many couples come to Maui to marry on the beach, other couples choose a more traditional venue such as a church. However, on Maui you can combine the best of both worlds since there are lots of chapels and churches right on the water! Depending on your faith, you may need an authorization letter from your pastor, priest, rabbi, etc. stating you can get married outside of your church. Because of this, finding a church and minister on Maui should be one of your first steps when planning your big day.

Maui Civil Unions

Hawaii is the seventh state to recognize civil unions between same-sex couples. A marriage license application is required and can be accessed via Hawaii's Department of Health. The application fee is $65, which can be paid online or at the time you and your partner submit your application. (We will arrange your licensing appointment for you.) Notably, an officiant of a civil union must be licensed by Hawaii's Department of Health in accordance with Act 1.

Hawaiian Lei: The traditional Hawaiian lei, which is made of flowers and leaves, is a symbol of love and respect and often used in wedding ceremonies.

Memorable Maui Wedding Favors

Not many people hang on to wedding favors. However, giving your guests a favor unique to Maui can definitely change that.

Cookies: Maui has some amazing and delicious cookies that come in a variety of flavors including macadamia nut and coconut. Plus, you can find cookies in island shapes such as pineapples or wedding shapes such as bells.

Nuts: Macadamia nuts are a local love on Maui. You can get them covered in chocolate, roasted, salted - even BBQ-ed.

Soaps/Lotions: Give your guests some of the creamy coconut lotions and sun blocks that are made right on Maui. You'll also find tropical flavored lip balms and fresh fruit filled soaps.

Coffee: Locally grown Maui coffee is popular world wide. A great local pick-me-up for your guests.

Butterfly Release: Butterflies represent a major life change, which is why their release has become popular at weddings in recent years. Release two, 10, 50 or more— the choice is yours.

Hawaiian Dancers: Traditional Hula dancers are a great way to add some island flair to your Maui wedding. Why not offer hula lessons to guests? Alternatively, you can have fire dancers at your big day — or maybe both?

Hawaiian Processional: Incorporate a Hawaiian tradition into your wedding! The blowing of a conch shell marks the beginning of the ceremony while a traditional hula dancer performs to the Hawaiian Wedding Song. Walk down the aisle to the Tahitian drum dance.

Ice Sculptures: Even though Maui can get pretty warm, if it's ice sculptures you want then that's what you'll have. Maybe you want a palm tree, dolphin or even a life-sized bride and groom!

Photo Booth: Say cheese! Allowing your guests to throw on some silly accessories and cram into a photo both always makes for memorable photos. Plus, the photos make great wedding favors!

Hawaiian Wedding Traditions


Saying "I Do" Island Style

Traditions can be a big part of a couple's wedding — whether the bride wears something blue or faith-based traditions are incorporated into the ceremony. If you're getting married on Maui you may be wondering if there are any special Hawaiian wedding traditions. Well you've come to the right place! All of us at Maui Beach Weddings and Events have planned hundreds of Maui weddings and love sharing our favorite Hawaiian wedding traditions.

The Lei — The traditional Hawaiian lei, which is made of Hawaiian flowers, signifies love and respect. The lei is likened to the wedding ring, as its circular shape represents your bond and eternal commitment to each other. Typically, a couple exchanges leis in the beginning of the wedding ceremony with an explanation about the lei's significance. Additionally, it is not uncommon for a couple to present their parents with leis as a sign of honor and respect. Members of the wedding party usually wear leis as well.

Flowers are abundant on Maui, and they are some of the most beautiful on Earth. Many Hawaiian brides forgo the typical veil for a garland of flowers around her head (Haku).

Attire — White is worn at Hawaiian weddings with the bride wearing a white flowy dress that moves with the winds. The groom wears a white flowy shirt, white pants and a red sash around his waist. As mentioned above, the groom wears a lei made of green maile or Ti leaves around his neck.

Music — Hawaiian music is unique and romantic. The ukelele and slack key guitar are the two most popular Hawaiian instruments. The traditional wedding song - Ke Kali Nei Au — is usually played at the beginning of the ceremony. While Charles King wrote the song in 1926, it's most known due to Elvis Presley's rendition in the movie Blue Hawaii. The blowing of a conch shell, which sounds like a trumpet, is also used to mark the beginning of a traditional Hawaiian wedding ceremony.

The Feast — A traditional luau typically follows a Hawaiian wedding. However, couples can choose to combine their favorite foods with traditional Hawaiian foods such as kalua pork, a variety of fish, sweet potatoes and fresh fruits.

Choosing What Hawaiian Wedding Traditions To Incorporate

When incorporating Hawaiian traditions into your Maui wedding, you want to get them right. Doing so can be difficult and overwhelming — especially if you are planning your big day from afar. That's why many Maui brides work with Maui Beach Weddings and Events. Our number one goal is your happiness. So call us! We love sharing our love of the islands, and how you can incorporate the Aloha Spirit into your big day!

Bridesmaids and Groomsmen Gifts


Saying "Thank You" to Your Bridesmaids and Groomsmen

Maui BridesmaidsChances are, your bridesmaids and groomsmen are some of your closest friends and family. Typically, a bride is responsible for purchasing her bridesmaid(s) gifts and the groom is responsible for his groomsmen's' gifts (with a lot of input from the bride, of course). Traditional gifts include jewelry, barware, photo frames, tote bags and golf accessories, to name a few. When in Maui, however, consider giving your bridesmaids and groomsmen something unique to the island. Here are a few of our favorite Maui bridesmaids and groomsmen gifts.

Hawaiian Jewelry —Hawaiian jewelry features flowers, sea life, island life (pineapples, flip flops, palm trees) and freshwater pearls to name a few. You can also purchase personalized Hawaiian jewelry by getting your bridesmaids and/or groomsmen's names translated into the Hawaiian language. Take a few minutes to check out the gorgeous Hawaiian wedding rings too!

Maui Experiences — a necklace is nice but why not treat your wedding party to a once-in-a-lifetime Maui experience? Think about a deep-sea fishing trip, a hike through a rainforest, a beach massage, a round of golf, a helicopter ride over waterfalls or a snorkel trip.

Gift Baskets/Totes — when on Maui you must go to one of the many breathtaking beaches. Creating a tote bag with full of beach essentials is a great idea for bridesmaids and groomsmen gifts. Fill the bag (you can get personalized beach bags as well) with a towel, sunscreen, magazines, flip flops, some Hawaiian candy, beach toys, etc.

Photo Gifts — you can't leave Maui without taking a few hundred photos! Beach-themed photo frames make great bridesmaids and groomsmen gifts — especially if you supply the photo. You can also get a favorite photo from your Maui wedding transferred to canvas or to a variety of novelties such as mugs, key chains and T-shirts. If you have some time you can also create a photo book of your Maui wedding/vacation or give your wedding party gift certificates to create a photo book.

Maui Wedding Themes


Thinking About Themes?

Considering having a theme throughout your Maui wedding? Themes are a great way to tie all of the elements of your wedding together. Plus a theme can bring out a couple's personality (we know you've seen the Star Wars weddings). Remember that a theme doesn't have to be blatantly obvious and present in every area of your wedding. Some couples choose to have a theme run solely throughout the reception, for example. Here are some of our favorite themes we've seen throughout the years.

The beach — having a beach or island-themed wedding is obvious on Maui since gorgeous beaches surround you (making the decorating easy). You can opt for a luau-type reception complete with a tiki bar and fire/hula dancing. Many couples also incorporate traditional Hawaiian food like roasted pork, tropical glazed chicken, taro pudding or chips, poi, sweet potatoes, and fresh tropical fruits like pineapple, mango and lilikoi (passion fruit) into the menu.

The point of having a theme, as mentioned above, is to share your personality and/or love of something with your guests. The "big day," like your love, is unique and something to cherish for a lifetime — so go ahead and get creative.

Ready to get planning? Contact us today, and we'll share some of our favorite (and funniest) Maui wedding themes!

Choosing Your Maui Wedding Attire


Should I Wear This? Or Maybe That?

Looking good on your wedding day isn't too hard when you're surrounded by Maui's beautiful scenery, which includes teal ocean waters, white sandy beaches and eye-popping flowers. However, deciding what to wear for your Maui wedding can still be a difficult decision. A good place to start is to choose whether you want your wedding to be informal or formal.

Typically, couples that are getting married on the beach opt for more casual attire such as khakis and a Hawaiian shirt for the groom and groomsmen and flowy comfortable dresses for the bride and bridesmaids (shoes are optional for everyone). Remember that Maui is often warm and windy. Guys wearing three piece suits or tuxedos can quickly become overheated. The same goes for a bride wearing a corset-style dress under the Maui sun. Therefore, brides should look for dresses made of comfortable, lightweight materials. A note to brides: don't discount short dresses — especially if you're a beach bride. You'll most likely be cooler in a short dress, which also allows you to walk along the water for photos and/or the ceremony without getting the dress wet. On the other hand, regardless of dress length, some brides can't wait to hop in the ocean dress and all!

A Formal Maui Wedding

Just because you're getting married on Maui doesn't mean your wedding has to be informal. Some couples prefer their big day to be more formal — whether the event is being held on the beach or at an estate or hotel. Just be sure to let your guests know ahead of time, as not many visitors to Maui typically need to pack formal attire.

As mentioned above, formal wedding attire can include tuxedos, three-piece suits and elaborate, more structured gowns. Again, due to Maui's warm temperatures, formal Maui weddings are typically held later or very early in the day when guests can be cooler.

A Few Free Tips

If you're looking to save money on your Maui wedding then consider renting your wedding attire. There are several bridal shops on Maui that allow you to rent a bridal gown, tuxedo or suit. These packages start around $300 — a definite savings that you could spend on seeing the sites of Maui!

Additionally, many of Maui's bridal shops offer pressing services so that you're not a wrinkled mess on your big day. You can either ship your gown and/or tux, suit to a bridal shop about two weeks prior or drop the clothes off three days before your wedding. This service usually costs $50 - $200 depending on the amount of clothing and type of fabrics you need pressed.

Don't forget about fit! Bridal shops on Maui also offer alteration services that can be completed in three days or less. So if you find that dream dress the night before you're flying to Maui, don't worry! Contact your wedding planner who can recommend a great tailor who can get that dress picture perfect in no time. Some tailors and bridal shops offer delivery services.

What's the Best Season to Get Married on Maui?


Choosing When to Get Married on Maui

Some brides think a little rain on a wedding day is good luck while others don't want a drop of precipitation coming anywhere near the big day. Luckily, the weather on Maui is somewhat predictable. Hawaii is on the edge of a tropical zone and therefore really has only two seasons — both of which are warm. In fact, the temperature is between 78 degrees in the winter and 85 degrees in the summer months. The dry season is between April and October and the rainier season is between November and March. However, rain on Maui is typically brief and passing.

Areas on Maui that are almost always sunny and perfect for a Maui wedding are Kihei and Wailea on the south side of the island and Lahaina and Kapalua on Maui's west side.

Contact us today with any questions about Maui's weather, peak travel times and of course, Maui weddings!

Maui Weddings:
Choosing a Morning or Sunset Ceremony


You Set a Date, Now You Need a Time!

Did you know that the typical Maui wedding is a small beach wedding? Not surprising, since there are dozens of beaches on Maui that feature simply breathtaking views. We often get asked though when the best time to get married on Maui is. Well, are you and your partner morning people or night owls? Remember that Maui is beautiful 24 hours a day!

Marry Me in the Morning

We recommend strategic planning when choosing the time of your wedding. Keep in mind that most beaches on Maui are open to the public. Also keep in mind that the temperature can become very hot very quickly. Therefore, if you'd like to get married in the morning we recommend doing so before 9 a.m. That way the temperature is mild, and the beaches aren't too crowded with beachgoers. Morning weddings on Maui are unique in that everything seems "fresh and new." The flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping, the grass is glistening and your surroundings are calm. You can then hold a brunch for your reception or relax on the beach and hold a night reception.

Saying "I Do" At Sunset

Maui Sunset WeddingSunsets on Maui are amazing. The colors in the sky resemble those in a crayon box — blues, purples, oranges, reds and combinations of all four. We recommend that you hold your ceremony one hour prior to sunset. That way you can have a comfortable ceremony with enough time afterward for the most amazing wedding pictures. Remember that Maui sunsets are popular among locals and tourists — so there will be more people around than during a morning ceremony. However, if you are working with a wedding planner they can help you find the perfect and most private spot for your big day.

Have You Picked a Planner?

Couples love working with us because we know all the great spots to get married on Maui (ones you won't find on the Internet). Plus, we can help you choose between a morning or evening ceremony, and how to make either the best day of your lives. So contact us today to find your perfect Maui wedding location!
