Good Sep 2, 2008
I very much like the idea and some of the information in this book. HOwever, I would have liked to see more pictures. COnsidering I bought this book because I don't live in Maui and can't go visit all the places before the wedding, It woulod have been good to picture them.
pretty vague details and few pictures Sep 19, 2007
Though the author organized the guide into helpful categories such as beach or garden ceremony sites, she only includes a handful in each category and with sketchy details at best. As far as locations go, this book is far from comprehensive and I was able to come up with most of the information doing my own internet searches. There is even a section on private estates, but she doesn't mention a single site! Additionally there is a small section of color photos at the end that are really, really unhelpful. Better would be to include black/white photos withing the sections about each site. It's not as if there wasn't room-each site has two dedicated pages, yet hardly ever does the author actually use the full space alloted.
Maybe I am approaching this book the wrong way. I am trying to plan a DIY wedding in Maui and I expected more than just a few guidelines and suggestions. If you are going to hire a wedding planner, then this book will help you make more informed choices, but otherwise I might skip it.
Great Resource! May 11, 2007
This book is great if you are looking for a location to have your Hawaiian wedding. It gives a 1-2 page description of locations with useful information--websites are also provided. This guide also provides photographers names, musicians, planners, and recommended vendors. A lot of this information I found on the internet previously, but still found this guide to be useful.
Amazing Resource Feb 16, 2007
This gave me everything I needed to plan my Hawaii destination wedding. Book is heavily concentrated on Maui, but with plenty of resources on Kauai and Lanai. It doesn't have a section on coordinators - probably because the author is a coordinator.
