Eloping Is All About You and Your Partner

When putting together a big wedding, it can quickly become overwhelming and stressful. When you are trying to figure out options that suit everyone, it can take away from your original idea of the wedding you have imagined.  Especially when considering a destination wedding, you can easily get lost in long guest lists, family drama, finances, and thinking about logistics rather than saying your “I do’s”.

When you opt for elopement, it is literally about you and your partner. Maui is within such easy reach from the mainland US that it’s much easier to have your wedding without long and complex planning months and months ahead of time. You don’t have to think whether your dream location will be fit for a large group of guests, and you can easily pick any location you and your partner have envisioned.

Maui’s paradise-like surroundings are made for weddings, and it’s easy to see why so many couples have chosen to elope in one of the world’s most beautiful places.

Eloping in Maui is Easy

If you haven’t considered elopement before, you might think that planning an elopement is complex and more challenging than preparing for a traditional wedding, but it’s not the case. Maui has been a favored wedding destination for decades, and everything you might need for a wedding or an elopement is within easy reach. The infrastructure is there. While eloping doesn’t mean getting rid of any planning altogether, it makes it easier. Over the years we have helped many couples elope, and we know what matters. If you prefer less or no hassle, choosing an elopement package for your intimate beach wedding is the way to go. It covers everything from licensing, picking a location, and an on-site wedding planner to keepsake wedding certificate and a minister to perform the ceremony.

On top of that, getting to Maui couldn’t be easier. Whether you fly directly to Maui or travel from Oahu, getting to Maui is quite easy. Not only do you get to marry in one of the world’s most beautiful places, but you’re already somewhere, where you can also have your honeymoon or travel to a nearby island like Lanai, for example.

Elopement is Cheaper Than a Traditional Wedding

Destination weddings are expensive. That’s a fact. While there are ways to make them more budget-friendly, especially with the help of an experienced wedding planner, they can still add up, and it can quickly damage the dream of your perfect wedding day. Elopement, on the other hand, is much more affordable without sacrificing the luxury and stunning location. Elopement packages have been created to suit various needs, and you can pick one that fits your vision and budget.

You Can Add Traditional Hawaiian Elements to Your Wedding

 There are many ways how you can customize your intimate wedding day and adding a traditional Hawaiian element is one of them. Whether it is a simple as wearing flower leis or having a ukulele player or having the ceremony initiated by the blowing of the conch shell, it can be the perfect addition to make your elopement unforgettable and extra special.

At the end of the day, any wedding, big or small, is deeply personal and should be one of the happiest days of your life. So whether you and your partner choose to elope or have a traditional wedding, this choice should be entirely yours and fit your wishes and needs. After all, when you say “I do”, nothing else matters.
