Why Choose a Maui Wedding Coordinator
Choosing a coordinator here in Hawaii is the first and most important thing to consider. Searching on line or even on the bridal forums may start you in the right direction of contacting a coordinator here. The next thing to do is to contact potential coordinators you have researched by phone, this will help you determine how knowledgeable, their willingness to help you and seeing if their personality fits your preference. By speaking with several coordinators, this will help you determine who you feel most comfortable with.
A great bridal resource like theknot.com provides bridal forums. There you can find honest opinions from brides that worked with us in the past. This is something we highly recommend.
Precious Maui Weddings does realize each person has their own thoughts and dreams of their perfect wedding day. This is why it is important to speak with you personally. We do not charge a fee for our phone consultations and upon request we can provide you with a proposal at no obligation.
Our coordinators have the resources to help you find a wedding location that will best suit your needs and budget and provide you information about the properties available here on Maui. Let us assist you in all your planning needs as this will save you lots of time and stress you may be spending searching for locations and vendors on your own. Our coordinators have done site inspections on all of our locations and have first hand experience with these sites. By letting us provide you our professional services you can be assured that if any unforeseen circumstances may occur with our vendors we have many resources to contact on your behalf. Some couple's decide they want to plan everything on their own and may not have all the necessary resources to accommodate them if something should occur at the very last moment.
In choosing your wedding service providers for our clients, we not only look for the good friendly service, but being born and raised on the island of Maui, with families going back three generations. We at Precious Maui Weddings want to insure that our service providers clearly understand and respect the local culture and be able to share that Aloha spirit for your Maui wedding.
The wedding industry is not regulated here in Hawaii and most wedding organizations are there for mostly marketing purposes. Therefore, we selected to be members of the Better Business Bureau and organization that requires excellent business ethics at the highest standards in Hawaii (Please visit our online report by clicking on the reliability seal on our site.)
Make sure the company you are considering working with is insured as well as some of the vendors they work with, such as their photographers, videographers and caterers have their own additional insurance as well, since these vendors are an important aspect of your wedding. The vendors we work with are always being evaluated to insure they continue to provide excellent service. Over the years with researching vendors we have found a large percentage of wedding service providers are not insured. Therefore, having a wedding coordinator who is insured will be a benefit to you.
Most important, we are a professional wedding coordination company who provides professional wedding services that hire all professionals in their field. This way you will not have your coordinator be your photographer, your minister be your musician or your photographer be your florist. Although, this is a matter of personal preference.
