Hi Bees! I’m thinking of having a wedding in Maui and was wondering…if you had a destination wedding, did you visit the venue or did you trust the reviews/photos/video? I’m tempted to do the latter to save $, but do you strongly advise against it?

I’m interested to see what people say. You already know I’m doing one in Maui too and not going there! It’s a bit scary, but I can’t afford it.

i had a Destination Wedding in Jamaica and there was no way i could afford to visit it beforehand. i just went off reviews etc. it mostly worked out great, i actually wished i took the reviews more seriiously, because i was not entirely happy with the beach i ended up getting married on, and some of the reviews had said it was kinda small…

I haven’t had mine yet, but I am not going to check it out beforehand. I am trusting my wedding planner as well as reviews and pictures that I came across when researching.

Hey fellow Maui Bees! I’m planning an Oct Maui Wedding and went there in early May
to select all of my vendors. Harder to do things over the phone, but if you need some
recommendations, let me know! I’ve done lots of research and made many phone calls,
and have met many vendors. Best of Luck!

Bump! Anyone who has had a Maui wedding, I would love to hear about your experiences, where you had it, and what the cost structure was like (including how many guests). I love details details details! Thanks to all that has replied so far, so helpful! Even though I still have no idea where I’m having my wedding…Maui seems like one of the best choices for cost effective destination in the tropics. And its the one island I haven’t been too!
