During the Maui wedding planning process, we always love when we get to the design and decor portion of the planning. This is usually the fun part for our brides as well, after all of your vendors have been secured, your timeline has been created and your menu has been planned, it’s time to get creative! Our brides often ask us how they can make their wedding unique and memorable for their guests, and we love being able to provide ideas and vendors that provide a one of a kind, customized experience for our couples. So today we are sharing the top 5 ways to add a touch of individuality and personality to your Maui wedding day!
ONE: Send a Customized Invitation Suite
There are so many gorgeous options for save the date cards and wedding invitations, why not send one that perfectly reflects you as a couple and your destination wedding in Maui. Once you’ve found the perfect suite, make sure that you bring a set with you to your wedding to have photographed. These little details are great memories to have and help to tell your story from beginning to end. Here’s an example of a tropical suite that matched our couple’s decor at the Olowalu Plantation House perfectly!
TWO: Welcome Your Guests with Customized Signage
Whether you are providing transportation for your guests or they are driving themselves to your wedding venue, having customized signage to welcome them to your event is a fantastic idea. This sets the tone of your event and makes a great first impression. We love a calligraphed sign by Miss B Calligraphy, from wood to mirrors to surf boards, the work of Miss B will wow your guests while providing your own unique stamp on your big day.
THREE: Customize your Place Settings
This might be the most beautiful way to wow your guests and set the mood for a luxurious evening in paradise! We all love a beautifully set table, and with an occasion as important as your wedding day, we can’t think of a better opportunity to set your wedding table with gorgeous pieces from Set Maui. From Gold Rimmed Dinnerware to Vintage Crystal Glassware to Copper Flatware, the possibilities are endless! Set’s website offers a tool to let you mix and match their pieces until you come up with the place setting of your dreams!
FOUR: Provide Favors that your Guests will Love
Edible favors are the right choice for a wedding here on Maui. Your guests will appreciate something that they will be able to enjoy later during their stay on Maui. Who wouldn’t enjoy a mini bottle of champagne that they can take back to their hotel and sip on their lanai while reminiscing on how amazing your wedding was!
FIVE: Create a Memorable Grand Finale
One of our favorite ways to end a wedding here on Maui is with a private luau show with an exciting fire knife finale by Manutea Nui E! Their authentic, private luau comes complete with musicians, drummers, dancers, costume changes, MC and an electrifying fire knife performance. We can’t think of a better way to end your perfect night in paradise!
