Aloha, welcome back! Today we’d like to talk a little story about why the ongoing pandemic makes for the perfect time for you and your beloved to celebrate together here on Maui! The ongoing lockdowns and resulting stressors have been hard to endure for us all. Times have been incredibly hard, and that likely goes double for your wedding planning in 2021. Most large events are currently either not allowed or are discouraged across the globe, which makes sense when you consider the possible health outcomes that can result from attempting to host a large wedding (not to mention record-setting lows and snowstorms complicating things even further, brrrrr!). With all of these barriers standing in the way, now is the time for couples to refocus on each other and celebrate their love with an island getaway in paradise!
Having a large wedding isn’t for everyone, and contrary to popular belief, the only people you need to please with your wedding are the two of you. Celebrating your love and commitment to one another are truly what having a wedding is all about, and there’s no time like the present to plan a Hawaiian destination wedding that’s every bit as unique as you are. Hosting a beach wedding can help to ensure that you and yours can stay safety distanced from one another, especially if there’s only two of you! If you are keen on having a ceremony for others to attend, a number of Maui’s outstanding wedding venues are primarily based outdoors, which will help to keep you and your loved ones safe and socially distanced…not to mention trimming up that guest list nicely!
What’s more, having a destination elopement also allows you to combine your nuptials and honeymoon into one amazing and unforgettable trip, leaving a sizeable chunk of money to be used for anything you wish: a down payment on a house, a new car, the start of a nest egg, or anything else you desire. No matter if you’re planning an intimate wedding or planning to elope, a destination wedding in Maui can actually help you save money while also providing you with a wedding experience you’ll treasure forever.
(Speaking of savings, here’s a tip: have you thought about having your wedding in the morning? That leaves you the rest of the day to celebrate, and a reception brunch is far more budget-friendly than a reception dinner!)
The pandemic has been incredibly hard for all of us and in so many ways, but that doesn’t mean that all your wedding plans have to go on hold. Indeed, love is never canceled at Happily Maui’d, and we’re here to help make the destination wedding of your dreams come true. We’d love to help you discover the possibilities with multiple wedding and elopement packages for every circumstance and budget, from socially distanced extravaganzas to an intimate beach wedding for two.
