While couples tie the knot or get “Maui’d” year-round, springtime is when many people decide to take their wedding vows on the beach or even enjoy a renewal ceremony. If you’re planning to wed on our beautiful island, of course you’ll want to be sure to book your Maui condo rental well in advance – and don’t forget accommodations for the most important members of your wedding party! Whether they’re paying or you’re footing the bill, they’ll need a comfortable place to stay.
You may not know it, but of all the islands in Hawaii, Maui is the most popular for vow renewal or wedding ceremonies. Whether you picture tying the knot on an ocean bluff, at a charming wedding chapel, a beachfront estate, or right on the water’s edge, there are many excellent wedding planners to help you with all of the details.
Can anyone get married in Hawaii? Other than those younger than 18 years of age, yes. Hawaii legalized marriages between same-sex couples in 2013, and even those younger than 18 can tie the knot with their parents written consent. U.S. citizenship is not a requirement to get married on Maui.
Be sure to plan well in advance so everything goes off without a hitch (pun intended)!
In order to have your wedding performed on the beach, you must get a permit. Be sure the minister or officiate is licensed, and obtain a marriage license so you won’t run into any problems. It’s also important to note that any toasts with champagne or other alcoholic beverages will have to wait until you’re off the beach, as alcohol isn’t allowed.
Most couples who don’t live on Maui or in Hawaii do most of the planning from afar, so you’ll want to do some research online to find a wedding planner or coordinator as this will make the entire process far more streamlined and less stressful. Regardless of your budget, there are lots of packages to choose from. Many planners and coordinators help with every aspect from flowers and the bride’s bouquet to music or entertainment, photography, wedding photos, and more.
A Maui wedding will leave you with wonderful memories that last a lifetime. Be sure you choose one of our luxurious Maui vacation rentals for relaxation following the festivities! With all the comforts of home, it will be the perfect ending to a magical day.
