There is such a concept as “affordable destination weddings” and Maui can be exactly what you are hoping for. Depending on the number of guests you invite and the decor you dream of, Maui can be the affordable destination for any budget.
The Hawaiian Islands are each very unique.Understanding the differences between them might help you select which island is best for your affordable destination wedding. Lanai and Molokai are the smaller islands in the chain and are great for day trips while staying on one of the other, larger islands.
Oahu, being the most populated, draws tourists that seek lively night life, densely populated shopping malls and of course, Waikiki!
Kauai is the destination for hikers, explorers and tourists needing to “get away from it all” for a bit. Kauai offers dense jungles and lush rainforests.
The Big Island Hawaii is the only island with an active volcano. It offers lots of miles of expansive black lava fields and course-textured beaches. Population is lower so you will feel the calming space around you.
Then there is Maui. Maui offers miles of sandy beaches and ocean side estates and condos. With this abundance comes options for many things to do and adventures to be had. Maui was voted the #1 island in the world by TripAdviser for 2016. Spend your days diving, snorkeling, hiking under waterfalls, para-sailing, shopping or exploring the amazing restaurants. Along with all these opportunities for adventure, Maui also offers the most affordable destination weddings out of all the Hawaiian islands.
