Maui Activites

There are many Maui Activities to do for your honeymooon ( after your wedding or vow renewal) here. Maui activities do book up. To reserve now see our partner’s activity reservations and activity pricing . There is so much to so see on Maui which is probably why Expedia customers named Maui the best island world-wide! We are not just beaches. Our 10,00 foot volcano is a must see. You can drive and see awesome waterfalls, hike through bamboo forests, go on dinner cruises in the sea or  experience a Hawaiian luau.  Visit museums, see tropical gardens and botanical gardens, drive down awesome view roads with unbelievable views. There is too much to mention.

The best Maui Activity (after your wedding) is probably enjoying the Maui beaches. So many news outlets have named Maui’s beaches the best, and folks that live on other Hawaiian islands always talk about Maui beaches being the best, acquiescing that although their beaches are great, Maui is the best.

Because Maui is so less populated than Oahu ( where Honolulu and Waikiki is located ) The Maui visitors Bureau website has extensive information on Maui beaches and other actives. We have over 12o miles of coast and almost  33 miles of beautiful  beaches. Our  island population of 125,00 people compare to Oahu’s 750,00  population, you can see why our larger inland will have a significantly less people on them. So, with Maui, you get that true tropical island experience and not an overcrowded feel.

Southwest Maui beaches are the best. The surf is not as huge as the north shore so just about anyone, even the non-experienced ocean goer can jump right into the ocean and not be overwhelmed by large waves.  There are some days when the surf is larger so do take a look before going into the water. This area includes Maalaea, Kihei, Wailea and Makena. There are many Maui Activity companies that offer services here: Surf lessons, fishing trips, snorkeling excursions, diving lessons and exursions. Whale watching is so popular with many people who come exclusively to whale watch as Maui is the island where there are best seen.

With 120 miles of coastline, Maui boasts over 303 miles of beautiful beaches. On these world famous beaches you’ll see white,  black and red sand beaches, with great  surfing and windsurfing places as well as some of the best beaches in the world to simply swim, snorkel and sunbathe and even tap a nice soothing nap!. Many beaches parks have lifeguards, picnic areas with barbques and restrooms. Others are , “hidden spots” found off the beaten path. Discover Maui’s world-famous beaches below:

Trash Your Wedding Dress

Trash Your Wedding Dress

Trash Your Wedding Dress. Some brides have fun after the wedding on the beach by trashing the wedding dress. We see so many posts now from around the country with images of women purposely getting their dress ruined somehow.   On Maui, the bride usually gets into the water and sand with a fun photo op. And yes, the dress can always be dry-cleaned and probably back to normal afterwards, maybe.

But what about the men? You never hear about trashing the tux or suit. The men get right into the water and on the lava rocks and get their wedding attire ruined too, but perhaps it’s because the bride’s wedding dress is a “once in a lifetime” dress so it rises on the importance scale. We first saw Hollwood popularize the “Trash Your Wedding Dress” phenomena in the movie “Sunset beach”. So,  if you are getting married here in Hawaii, how do you do it?

The best way is to notify your Hawaii wedding photographer ahead of time so he/she can be preparing ideas, based on the venue and his/her capabilities. See our Hawaii Wedding Photography page at http://hawaiiwedding.com/gallery/maui-wedding-photography-portfolio/

Poolenalena Beach, our favorite beach for weddings ( due to its beauty and more seclusion than most beaches) is probably the best. There are lava rocks to add the the photos uniqueness and to allow you to sit on it while a wave comes and splashes up all around you. Another favorite pose would be laying in the sand and waiting for that wave to come ( hopefully not a shark along with it, just joking) Be sure to select a professional photographer who knows how to shoot into the sun without getting a  silhouette shot, and a pro who is able to maintain his/her camera dry!

Maui named #1 island world-wide

Maui named #1 island world-wide

Maui named #1 island world-wide. Expedia made there note-worthy news taken by votes from users.  The reasons are numerous. Maui has the best beaches in the world; miles and miles of white sandy beaches hoghtlighed with swaying palm trees and jutting black lava rocks from our volcano ( I’ll get to that shortly.)  A Maui, Hawaii wedding on a secluded beach is the best. Our beaches are clean, not rocky, and you can stroll forever and relax and get exercise too. The nice part of Maui beaches is that they slope slowly into the water, so you can wade out and not all of a sudden be in deep water. Everyone, even the locals notice how clean Hawaii’s ocean appears. You can see all the way to your feet! This author remembers the last time I went into the Atlantic off of Florida and I could only see a few inches down, hmmm.

Swimming on Maui? You bet! The south and west shores have waves that are minimal and its easy to swim and enjoy. Everyone knows about our world class surfing too. For beginners there are classes to take for all ages and even the most uncoordinated person will get up a a board and come to shore. The instuctors practically guarantee it. Don’t let the idea of snorkeling scare you. It is so easy to learn in calm waters, and the colorful fish and corals you will see will amaze you. Snorkel gear is very inexpensive to rent here.

Maui named #1 island world-wide is no accident. The gorgeous, gallant and loving whales come by the thousands to the shores off Maui every November – May. ( January-March is the best time to come to see them) Once, when whaling was legal, Hawaii had a sad history of killing whales. That ended decades ago and the whales are returning in greater numbers ever year. Even the old-timers watch in amazement as the baby breach (become born) and jump out of the water in glee. Just go to U-tube and watch a video of this. You will want to see it personally, and we have many boating and tour companies that have pro guides to take you out and explain the migration and living whales of Maui.

Maui is not just about the ocean and beaches. We have Haleakala. It is our magnificent 10,ooo foot dormat volcano ( not extinct) that rises to the heavens with the most amazing views. Yu can drive yourself up ( Most people rent care here) or take a tour bus to the top and see a volcano lake dried up that looks like the planet Mars. Words cannot express the beauty and true nature of it all. It is a must-see when you come to Maui. Having a Hawaii wedding is a dream come true with so much to enjoy.  🙂

There is also our waterfalls and bamboo forests to see. Later stories about this magnificent island to get married and honeymoon.  Maui – best island word-wide!

Maui Wedding Video

Maui Wedding Video

Having a Maui Wedding Video is becoming more popular for a Maui Wedding destination. Since some family members and friends can’t  attend your wedding in Hawaii, having a video of the wedding that can be shared back home is big plus. A professional video of the ceremony with couples “miked” properly so one can hear the vows being said is what everyone wants. The video can be played back at a reception later and of course listened to for years. Many couples pass the video on the to kids as a nice memory. See a snippet of a Maui Wedding Video here at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6O6JfJ4Xh3Q  At hawaiiwedding.com we offer the best videographers anywhere. They shoot the ceremony and then after the ceremony they do nice out-take shots of the family and friends, and then focus on shooting the couple doing fun romantic “stuff ” on the beach during the sunset. Romance is captured on video for a lifetime.

A Maui Wedding Video is more affordable then people think.  The Hawaii Wedding package #4 includes a professional videographer, a pro photographer, an officiate and wedding planner, leis, beach permit, submission of legal documents to the State of Hawaii,  all for under $1800. This is much less than folks pay back home, and of course Maui is the best place to honeymoon so this is  a win-win situation. No one has ever contacted us that they did not like their video, and we have done hundreds of videos over the last 20 years in business on Maui.

Wedding couples frequently ask us what is the best colors to wear for a video. Adding in blues, reds, greens to the wear gives a good contrast to the traditional white wedding dress and having a tropical colorful bouquet with flowers from Hawaii really “pops” in the video. If it’s a summer wedding we recommend lightweight clothing as it can be warm.

So, consider adding a memory to last forever.

Maui Wedding Favors

Maui Wedding Favors

Posted by on Apr 26, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

Maui Wedding Favors SweetCBake Shop, Hilo Hattie and Ben Franklin Crafts at the Queen Kaahumanu Center in Kahului Maui are some of our favorite places to get Maui Wedding Favors. There you can find Maui scented candles, shells, mini hula implements etc. Let you imagination run wild.

Everyone likes candy, well most everyone. What better Maui Wedding Favors than these cool looking cookies from Maui. The Hawaiian shirt cookie looks like something you could wear and keep forever, but those of us who are sweet addicts may have a hard time doing so.

It is traditional in the USA mainland and Hawaii as well to provide a gift or favor to guests. The favors need not be expensive but something unique is far better than the traditional favor. Make is something can talk about, enjoy, and savor. The cookies seem to be everyone’s favs, and they look cool at each place setting which adds a touch of gratitude on behalf of the bride and groom.The kids ( age 3 to age 93) have fun eating them, and are to be treasured.

Maui Wedding Favors

The tradition of giving wedding favors is a very old one. The first wedding favor ever that we know of  was known as a bonbonnieret. They were treats full of sugar which symbolizes health and happiness. So your Maui Wedding Favors will continue this tradition (and more so)  because they probably taste better than the pure sugar treats from thousands of years ago. Many brides have fun and “google” the term Maui Wedding Favors and can peruse the variety of gifts you can surprise your Hawaii Wedding guests. Make sure it is something you can pick up here on Maui and not have to ship it from home. You will avoid an unnecessary expense this way. Have fun  on Maui and Enjoy!
