Why Choose a Maui Beach Wedding 

Maui is the best most romantic island of Hawaii’s 5 main islands, voted best island in the world 19 times by “Conde Neste” Travel Magazine and Expedia named it best island in 2019, world-wide as did “Travel and Leisure” magazine

A kiss is more than a kiss

Is There Romance on Maui?

Hmmm, the quick answer is “of course” ( ʻoiaʻiʻo in Hawaiian). Beach weddings are so romantic! Perhaps it’s the sound of the serene ocean waves, the sunsets, the clean sea air, or the soft sand beneath your toes. Beach weddings outmatch other traditional venues when it comes to romance. See our Maui locations here.


If you combine a beach wedding with a Maui destination wedding, then you can get married a day or 2 after you arrive and spend the remainder of your time on Maui, exploring all there is to do, such as seeing our 12,000 foot dormant volcano Haleakala ( looks like Mars), walking through the jungle seeing waterfalls and bamboo trees. Of course Maui has the best beaches to sunbathe, swim, snorkel, surf, golfing, tennis, going for walks, or just read a book. There are museums, art  galleries, botanical gardens, wineries in the low mountains and so much more. See Maui wedding pricing here


Sunset wedding on Maui

Maui sunset weddings are popular

Consolidating together the cost of your wedding with the cost of your honeymoon is a consideration too. There is no need to travel anywhere else. 

At a Maui destination wedding, your guest list is shorter. You save money by having your beach wedding on Maui as the most expensive part of a wedding is the reception. At a small Maui wedding, you can save thousands on food costs with less people to feed! A Maui wedding includes the Planner, beach permit, Officiant, Photographer  and is just $1400.00 currently.

You can spend special time with your close friends and family members and they will thank you for a vacation full of excitement and fun away from home. Elopement is also a fabulous option for beach weddings. Most weddings companies can accommodate a last minute decision to get married or just a small wedding with a cookie of friends or family.

Easy and Elegant Beach Wedding Decor

The decor for beach weddings can be a simple, taking advantage of the natural features that surround you such as the most beautiful ocean in the the world. The wedding color scheme could be bright contrasts or soft tans and corals and or perhaps even shades of blue and green colors. What is certain is that your beach wedding will be gorgeous with minimal effort. A popular beach wedding decor can include a circle of flowers.

The flower circle is the focal point for the wedding, The couple stands inside of it during the ceremony. A circle is a symbol of the love between the couple, never-ending. 

It’s important it is to choose the best location and we know them and will point out the best ones, ( See Maui Beach locations) A beach wedding can be the perfect start. Imagine the breathtaking sunset, your significant other, and he sounds of the ocean as you say “I do!”

Who Plans My Beach Wedding? I Am Far Away.

The ceremony planner does almost everything. The bride’s only real responsibilities are picking a beach wedding package, picking out her colors, and taking care of a few additional formalities such as applying on-line for the marriage license, paying $65.00 to the State of Hawaii. We make the license appointment for you ( just 15 minutes long), so all you need to do is just show up!

Where on Maui to Get Married?

There are so many different venues. Elopements should be romantic and about the two of you. Do you want to get married on a beautiful beach at sunset? Most couples do, and then go out to a nearby oceanfront restaurant to celebrate your day of love. There are dozens of awesome beaches we use. See our favorite.

There are also Churches, gardens, and more. Email or call us to reserve. 808-891-1200.

Eloping to Maui, Hawaii has become increasing popular. There are many wedding companies and resorts that do all the planning. We do everything for you ( over 25 years now on Maui) .

Where to Stay on Maui

Maui is larger than many people think and it can take many hours to drive from one side of the island to the other. We have a diverse ecosystem where one side of the island is lush and green, and rains considerably almost every day. This is East Maui, where the forest and waterfalls are located. Hana is popular. This is an excellent area to visit or do a day trip, but almost everyone wants to be on the dry side of the island, the most popular southwest side (Kihei, Wailea, and Maalaea)

For accommodations, we recommend Southwest Maui ( Kihei, Wailea) which has the nicest beaches, and is closer to the airport, Maui mountain villages,  and waterfalls. See hundreds of vacation rentals at


You can also drive to our waterfalls, bamboo rainforests, and see the diverse island.

So, Elope to Maui, stress free, upscale and elegant, where we handle all the details for you.

Maui Wedding Bouquets For Your Hawaiian Wedding

Maui Wedding Bouquets For Your Hawaiian Wedding

Posted by on Jun 6, 2022 in Blog, Hawaii Weddings |

Brides having a flower bouquet has been a long-standing tradition in most, if not all, kinds of weddings. It’s more than just something to keep a bride’s hands busy as they walk down the aisle. It’s an accessory that ties your wedding’s design all together. Read our blog below to help you choose your Maui wedding bouquets.

Why carry a bridal bouquet?

This practice started back from ancient Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians. They used to carry fragrant herbs and spices during weddings to ward off bad luck. The flowers also symbolized new beginnings, fertility, happiness, and fidelity. By the Victorian era, it fully evolved into the wedding bouquet we know today. Floriography, or the language of flowers, was popular during this time, and brides expressed their romantic sentiments through specific flowers.

Another reason brides carried flower bouquets during wedding ceremonies was because of their fragrant smell. Their pleasant floral scent served as a perfume for the brides and masked their body odor back then when bathing regularly wasn’t widespread. However, that isn’t much of a concern today, so bouquets serve mainly as a beautiful accessory.

How to choose your wedding flowers

With so many flowers you can use, it can be an overwhelming choice. To make it simple, you will only need to consider the following: your personal preference, your wedding’s color theme, and the season your wedding will take place. Once you’ve sorted these elements, you will find the perfect flowers to make up your Maui wedding bouquets.

You can also take note of your wedding dress when choosing the flowers and the bouquet style. It should complement your wedding dress instead of overpowering it. For instance, a sleek gown needs a minimal bouquet. On the other hand, if you wear a large ball gown, you can choose a more elaborate bouquet. 

Hawaii wedding

We can incorporate your children into the ceremony.

Who else needs flowers during the wedding?

You can also outfit your entire entourage with flowers if you want. Typically, your bridesmaids can carry smaller but similar bouquets. The flower girls can bring a basket of petals or a flower crown (or both!). For older family members like mothers, aunts, and grandmothers, corsages can make for great floral accessories that match. 

Aside from the entourage and guests, flowers can also adorn the venue. 

Choose your Maui wedding bouquets

If you’re planning to be wed in the tropics of Maui, then there’s nothing more beautiful and appropriate for your Maui wedding than modern Hawaiian bouquets. The island boasts a rich flora that you can choose from to style your wedding bouquet. Perhaps so much that you would not know which ones to select. You can always rely on our professional Maui wedding planners to pick out the perfect flowers and other decors for your special day.

Maybe you’ll want a circle of petals for the ceremony that will look great in the photos. The couple can stand inside the circle of petals during the wedding ceremony, with loving guests standing around it! See circle of petals and bouquets here

Whatever you may need for your wedding ceremony, we at Hawaii Wedding and Vow Renewals can make it unique and unforgettable. So plan your special day with us today.

Small Hawaii Weddings

Small Hawaii Weddings

Posted by on Jun 21, 2021 in Blog, Hawaii Weddings | 0 comments

Small Hawaii Weddings  and elopements are popular here on Maui. We consider a small wedding to be less than 30 people and many weddings are just a few guests.  We have a many couples eloping to Maui. Some don’t want a large group wedding at home, so they come to Hawaii, and to Maui, voted best island world-wide by Conde Nest Magazine for 19 years!, and named best island worldwide by Expedia in 2019.

Here at Hawaii Wedding and Vow Renewal, we think small Hawaii weddings are the best. It is so much less stressful for the couple. A wedding is about you, not about all the guests. A Small Hawaii Wedding allows the couple to enjoy themselves and absorb the beauty of Hawaii while they say their vows, exchange rings, and kiss. It’s os affordable, see Maui wedding pricing here

We specialize in small Hawaii beach and garden weddings, having been in business on Maui planning weddings for over 25 years. We plan all the ceremony details including getting the beach permit to use the beach, hiring Officiants, Musicians, Photographers, videoagraphers and more.

We know the best wedding locations. (click here to see). Almost all couples select a wedding package with photos and video ( see Maui wedding packages) so they can have a casual reception back home with friends and family who could not come.  They show the pictures and video, and it is a good time for all.

Many years ago Hawaii wedding and Vow Renewal was featured in USA today and we spoke to the renown journalist ( Susan Paige)  of how couples actually save money coming to Hawaii for their wedding. The largest cost for a wedding is the food and drinks. With less people coming to a small wedding in Hawaii, you save drastically on having minimal restaurant costs here. Another reason to have a small Hawaii wedding!

Many couples ask us about the type of ceremonies we perform. Some couples are Christian and other prefer a non-religious ceremony, and some couples will have one person be of one faith and the other person of a different faith or non-religious. What to do?  We offer a variety of ceremonies and can customize for mixed-faith or non-faith couples; the Hawaiian Ceremony.

The non-religious ceremony, cultural/spiritual ceremony we wrote in part. We can end the ceremony with a closing prayer for couples who will comprise, thus the non-religious person gets mostly a non-religious ceremony, and the Christian person gets a closing Christian prayer – Marriages are about compromise so this is a good start.

We plan and organize everything. Call us to reserve at 808-891-1208 0r 8089-891-1200. Email us

Sweet Hawaii Weddings

Sweet Hawaii Weddings

Posted by on Nov 20, 2019 in Blog, Hawaii Weddings | 0 comments


Sweet Hawaii Weddings at Hawaii Wedding and Vow Renewal provides Officiants/Ministers, photographers, wedding and vow renewal planning, License information and more. A sweet wedding on Maui is held at one of our popular beaches, Sugar Beach.

Why is this sweet gem called Sugar Beach? Take a look the photos here.

The beach gets its name from Maui’s sugar cane growing days, where sugar cane would be loaded onto cargo ships here at Sugar Beach. Maui’s historic wharf remnants can still be seen here a mile away from our special beach. Sugar beach is nearly 3 miles long, the longest stretch of a beach on Maui.

Maui Weddings

Maui sunset weddings are popular

Sugar has quite a history on Maui. Large swathes of land were bought by US businessmen in the mid 1800’s and native Hawaiian were displaced from their land. Acres and acres of land was irrigated and sugar planted, and from the mid 1800’s until 2017, sugar and Maui went hand-in hand. Due to low revenue and cheap sugar from Southeast Asia, the sugar producer stopped growing it here.

We have many other beaches that are cute and beautiful too. See photos here.

Our wedding company has planned over 12,000 weddings and vow renewals on Maui since 1994. We know the best locations and can help guide you to a venue that best fits your desires.

Complete weddings at Sugar Beach and other venues start at $695. See Maui wedding pricing here.

Sweet Hawaii Weddings. The sweetness has gone but Maui is still one sweet place to get married. Call 1-808-891-1208.
