Due to liquor laws and beach permit terms, no alcoholic beverages of any kind are allowed on Hawaii’s beaches.
IN THE EVENT OF RAIN
Though we rarely have in issue with the weather, one of the few drawbacks of having an inexpensive beach wedding venue is that there is no dependable backup. In the event of rain, we will make every reasonable effort to move or reschedule your wedding. Our possible options include:
- Move to a different beach with no rain. Sometimes it can be clear just a few miles down the coast.
- Hold your wedding in the atrium of Gannon’s Restaurant, provided they have availability and you are marrying on the south side.
- Hold your wedding on the lanai of your hotel.
- Postpone your wedding to the next date when all confirmed vendors are available.
- We will consult with you to see what your preference would be. A reschedule fee and additional West side travel fee may apply.
- All services reserved will be non-refundable.
- In the event of rain or inclement weather, no refunds or partial refunds will be offered for any services, rentals, or products ordered, even if unable to use them due to rain.
- If your ceremony is postponed to another day, the client will be responsible for any additional charges incurred by Wedding Planner for all services and products.
It is highly advisable that you purchase trip insurance to cover the entire cost of your wedding and vacation just in case the unforeseeable happens and you are not able to make your trip as planned.
A 4.166% tax will be added to all prices. Prices are subject to change without notice.
By remitting your payment to Maui Weddings From The Heart, you are agreeing to the above stated policies. Client agrees to forfeit all payments to Wedding Planner, Vendors and Private Venue for non-compliance with this agreement.
