  • Wedding: April 2013

We honeymooned in Kaanapali in late April and it was sunny and 84 degrees with little to no wind every single day!  The only rain we saw was at high altitude on Haleakala (the volcano).  The only wind was when we were out on a catamaran and heading further north (Kapalua area).  Kaanapali and Wailea are on the same side of the island.  Kaanapali is further north, so they say it gets a bit more rain and wind, but that shouldn’t be an issue in May.

I’ve only been to Maui in late summer (August). We stayed in West Maui and didn’t have any rain. I’ve seen rain on other islands during other times of year.

I think you’ll be very pleased with the Ritz – it is a beautiful property! (all of your choices are amazing!)

We stayed in Kanapali for our honeymoon in December, the weather except for one cloudly day was exceptional.  We stayed at the Westin, not sure about the other places, but it was a beautiful area.

My parents just got back from staying in Maui for the first 2 weeks of May and they said it was pretty windy/rainy in Lahaina where they stayed for a lot of the time. But- I think that you can’t really plan exactly for the weather because each year the weather patterns are different and you will need to have a back up plan for weather no matter where you choose.  I’ve been to Maui, but we stayed mostly in Kihei and if we got married it would be just a tiny thing on the beach near there, so I’m no help with the resorts, sorry! I do remember from the weather that the storms were relatively short and things cleared up quickly- I was there late May/early June a few years ago.  So even if there is a storm shower on your wedding day, chances are it could clear up and be over in time for the ceremony.  I’m totally jealous that you are getting married in Hawaii though, because no matter what it will be beautiful! That would be my first choice of places to get married if we could swing it. 🙂

@Lains515:  I stayed in Napili which is just south of Kapalua towards the end of April and the weather was gorgeous. The locals told me that the west side of all the islands is generally the drier, sunnier side. This is actually something that I found to be quite true as I also went to the Big Island, Oahu, and Kauai, and it was pretty much the same on all 4 of those islands (rainy on the east side, hot and dry on the west). I don’t think you’ll have an issue in May.

@Lains515:  I am getting married at the Ritz in Maui!  If you haven’t already booked a place and would like any information, just let me know and I will be more than happy to help!

Kaanapali is beautiful. The weather by Maalena Harbor is really windy but that’s southeast of Kaanapali. I haven’t been to any of those hotels so I don’t really know where they are.

Hello from a Maui bride. I was just married there in June. I will say, that I have been to Maui in May, and it does rain a tad more.

We were married in the Lahaina area at the Olowalu Plantation House. Any questions, let me know!!
