What is on your wish list for your special day? Gone are the days of having to invite everyone you’ve ever met! Nowadays your special day is all about you and the love of your life with those friends and family close enough to drop everything for your special event.

Most people don’t have a list of invitees that necessitates a massive reception venue and so what to do if your guest list consists of only a few close friends and family but more than the intimate beach wedding concept?

Maui wedding venuesThe idea of a destination wedding at a Maui wedding venues is becoming not only extremely appealing, but quite often more cost effective than a “traditional” wedding . Just imagine how thrilled your guests will be to combine your magical day with a tropical island vacation?

For my money though the places that top the list are places with sun, sand and sea. There is nothing like standing in paradise gazing at your love with the sun on your back and the sound of the ocean in your ears.
