My boyfriend and I are planning on traveling to Maui around May-July of 2015 for five nights. We are debating whether to get married on the beach or just do a short ceremony before we head out. Not quite an elopement, considering it's all planned. But still secret!
We have looked into doing a "Tiny Bubbles" package with White Orchard Weddings, but we are not sure if it's worth the extra money. We would rather just have the nicest honeymoon possible. We are looking for our hotel and flight arrangements to be around $5,000-$6,000. We've seen packages that fit this, but that wouldn't include our ceremony. Is it worth it to pay for a beach wedding?
We have looked into the Four Seasons, mainly. It seems like the best on the island, but you pay for it. The Grand Wailea seems great as well. We are recent college grads, so we will be saving every penny and want to have the best time, yet not go completely broke.
Concerns for Four Seasons:
-Not many restaurants and they seem very high-end (We may just want a sandwich for lunch and we don't want to pay $30 for it...)
Concerns for GW:
-Busier, with more children around. We want to have some privacy.
-We like that there are more food options, but we also want to stay somewhere and feel we are getting the most bang for our buck
-Doesn't seem quite as romantic
We mainly just want to lay on the beach, swim, eat, and enjoy being married!
We would love suggestions on where in Maui is great for two, young, honeymooners!Edited: 15 July 2014, 10:17
