I’m new here (it’s my first post!!) and I’m hoping to pick your brains about getting married in Maui. I just recenty got engaged and my FI and I are considering a DW. In a perfect world I picture an intimate and secluded ceremony (which wont be a problem) followed by an amazing dinner and then dancing the night away. This is where we seem to running into problems. If we have the reception at a restaurant or a private venue there seems to be a 10pm noise restriction. So after a wonderful ceremony and dinner, what do you do? Has anybody else run into this problem? We haven’t spoken to any wedding planners or venues its just what we have read online. I would love to hear about your Maui wedding! Help a newbie out?!? Thanks!

We got married on Kauai and had to leave our venue by 10:30. We rented big rental houses with our bridal party so everyone went back to the house to drink, play pool, and listen to music. But honestly, everyone was so exhausted from the wedding and the heat (and drinking!), that we didn’t even stay up that late!

@sharkchomp: Thank you so much for your reply! What was the name of the houses you stayed at? Did you happen to use a wedding planner?

@Tippy0707: we found two 5 bedroom houses on VRBO and Home Away but I can’t remember the exact names. We used Moana Events who are based on Oahu and also serves Kauai. They were absolutely fabulous, all of our vendors were!

I went to a DW in Maui. They got married in a secluded spot that was not on the beach but was more of a green grass and foliage. The reception was actually just all of us going to a luau (they paid for it and we had reserved tables). It was a lot of fun even though it wasn’t a traditional reception. Where they got married was on part of the luau property I think.
Because of the time difference, I was pretty much ready for bed every night at 10pm. I think one night I managed to stay up until midnight. So I wouldn’t be surprised if your guests didn’t want to be up past 10:30 anyway! From what I can tell by staying at resorts…most guests were in their room or in bed at 10:30!
