June 2012 Weddings

How to start the venue/vendor search?

I am planning a June 2012 wedding in Maui. Because this will be a destination wedding and we live in California, we are not able to go look at the venues and meet with wedding coordinators at this time. However, for now, I wanted to start collecting documentation from the wedding venues and coordinators. The venues and coordinators we are considering include the following:

-The Grand Wailea - All weddings provide a complimentary resort wedding planner
- The Four Seasons Wailea- Complimentary Resort Wedding Planner
- The White Orchid House- Requires that we hire White Orchid Weddings to plan
- Honua Kai Lani - Private estate available through almost any planner
- Precious Maui Weddings to coordinate if we were to choose the Honua Kai Lani.

Because we are not ready to commit ourselves to any one venue or event coordinator at this time, would it be best to just email them to ask a few questions and request additional documentation regarding other vendors used by the wedding coordinators (florists, cake, dj, caterer, etc.)? I would like documentation from each business, but do not want to set anything in stone and not feel forced to. Also, do any of you have any opinions or experiences with any of the venues/ coordinators listed above? If so let me know! :)
