Tammy and Christopher created a lovely wedding dream based on pastels, white and dusty blue. Check out the artisan elements and all the stunning eco-friendly details. Flowers were re-purposed from the wedding arch to the sweetheart table, then donated to a local charity after the event. Bistro lights were used to illuminated the venue after sunset for 4 hours. Everything from tables, chairs, lighting, table settings, napkins, bar set up, wedding arch, and cake table are rented and reused time after time. Touches of elegance were created in the velvet napkins and vintage blue water glasses. Eucalyptus provided the soft hue that beautifully tied everything together.

Tableware and decorations:
Tableware and napkin choices are most noticeable for any wedding reception. These two items set the tone of your event design. Tableware is very detailed, yet simple to put together. Your sophisticated guests will notice the quality of your dinner napkin which shows the you care about your special guests.
Some couples are on a budget and choose the basic tableware provided by the caterer. This is fine. Add a nice quality napkin either in a color or a special linen material. Quality napkins are a simple item that you may buy from the mainland at a great price and bring it to Maui in your suitcase. You’ll want to give it to your Maui wedding planner as soon as you arrive so that your planner may pre-fold or press them in advance.
Think about how you can make your tableware and table decorations as special as possible? There are many choices when it comes to table design. Based on your wedding theme, choose the pattern that you love. Setting the table perfectly and ensuring that everything shines is what your wedding planning team will take care of. They have the experience to pre-set the reception table flawlessly.
A customized table setting adds great elegance to your reception, as the setting stands out most when guest sit down for dinner. Your caterer may deduct their plate ware and flatware from you catering bill so that you may apply those costs to customized settings. Your coordinator will assist you in keeping the overall table theme simple and elegant.
Names cards and table assignments:
One way you can make your seating arrangements very special is to create a seating board. This is a creative board of guest seating that you may set at the entrance to the dinner reception. When designing your seating board, your wedding planner will ensure that it serves the most important purpose of making it easy for guests to understand, and look beautiful. Your seating board will work in conjunction with name cards, table numbers, menu cards, and your tableware. Your coordinator will work in conjunction with your catering staff, pre-arranged seating assignments, and ensuring that each guest seat is organized and accurate. Your wedding coordinator may assist you with the overall design and organization. It can be clean and simple or personalized with calligraphy. Either way is elegant.
Cake stands and cake topper:
Since you put a lot of thought into choosing your cake and style, you will want to choose a nice cake stand that will best show off your cake during dinner. There are many choices of cake stands, so choose one that will match theme and personality. It doesn’t necessarily have to match your tableware, but more importantly to match your vision. Your cake topper will be an expression of your personality, relationship, family heirloom or simple flowers to match your theme. Together, your cake stand and topper will be adored by guests throughout dinner and will be a memorable setting for your photographer to capture.
You will most likely have some signage for your event to direct guests to your ceremony and reception. Signage should be as beautiful as possible as they become part of your site atmosphere. A creative wedding planner can help with this. Calligraphy is elegant and provides beauty while directing guests the right way.
Some couples love flowery designs while others prefer to keep it simple or wish to save costs with flowers and spending more on food and bar. Your wedding planner will work with your florist in creating your vision. Most importantly, provide detailed flower preferences so that your florist has a clear vision. Choose a stunning bridal bouquet, as your total wedding flower theme will most likely be determined by the style of your bouquet. Then, trust your florist to fulfill your beautiful flower order. Keep in mind that flowers are time sensitive, especially in the island’s warm weather. Also, know that flowers are seasonal and based on availability. Your reputable florist will provide a beautiful setting for your wedding, as well a placing small floral details in a picture perfect way.
Lighting is very important for weddings. If you’re having an outdoor reception, it may be affected by a whether or not it is a full moon. Make sure that your site lighting is bright enough for your guest to see what they are eating. The lighting design should cover every table and not leave out the tables set at the outer edges. Lighting should romantic and elegant, not too bright. Sometimes the cake cutting occurs following dinner. It would be nice to ensure that you have a pin light pointing to your cake to accommodate your photos so guests may admire the cake during dinner. Make sure there if ample lighting for guest to see as they walk to the bathrooms and parking area. It will be important to do a light check once it’s set up to make sure the lighting is set to go. Some venues may not have enough power to accommodate event sound, lighting, catering equipment, DJ equipment, etc. Make sure that the electrical works and provides enough power. If lighting shorts out, your event will come to a temporary halt until the issue is resolved.
Once your wedding decorations are complete, your vendors may provide the best product and customer service possible for your special day. This is the base for a successful and beautiful Maui wedding event.

Maui environmental weddings showcase the natural island essence of things you would find while walking along the beach.
We’ve found shells, pieces of driftwood, sea glass, sand, water, and kiawe wood. Natural elements become a beautiful extension of rolling waves, grassy wedding knolls, scenic mountains and valleys. Flowing runners of greenery and other inspirational elements are naturally created in Maui environmental weddings. Table place settings are enhanced by natural elements. Wedding arches are unique in style to match such an environmental scene. Color palettes are inspired by the natural tones of the seashore’s greens, grays, and hint of blue. You may include these natural elements to formal settings in creating a lovely island wedding reception.
