    Though you plan on doing most things yourself, a wedding coordinator would be of help in attaining the permit for a beach wedding and any other details that you might have over looked also the wedding coordinator can also be your person on point to help you with vendors and recommendations.  I heard one knottie here say that her officiant got them the beach permit so you could go that route as well.  But I recommend some WC and use one of their beach packages.

    Our wedding coordinator is giving us the following for our Maui beach wedding Beach permit Assistance obtaining marriage license Bouquet for me Leis for both of us Keepsake wedding certificate Officiant Hair & makeup for me Hair for my mom Discounted booking on activities on the island All for $570. There's very little markup to doing it on your own and you don't have to worry about the stress of getting it all to come together.

    Do you know which area of Maui you'd prefer? The other upside to having a coordinator is that they can help block off your desired ceremony location and redirect traffic as needed. Or, if your location is taken, they can also help redirect guests.

    Initially, I was planning on doing a Maui wedding.  Now I'm focusing on Kauai.

    While I was researching Maui, I emailed quite a bit with a wedding coordinator named Kara Burne of Your Aloha Wedding.  http://www.youralohawedding.com/

    Although I have not actually done an event with her, she was by FAR the most helpful and responsive coordinator I've found on any of the islands.  I'm even considering flying her into Kauai if I can't find anyone on Kauai who returns phone calls faster than once a week.  Like I said, I haven't actually seen her put on an event, but her communication seems great so far.

    Good luck!

    I started working with Kara but her prices were pretty high compared to the planner I went with.  Good luck on your planning!
