Nothing will be more personal than your wedding day. From the location you choose, to the food you serve, within every aspect of your destination wedding day there are many ways to add personal touches that will make it feel extra special. How and where to incorporate those personalized details can be a challenge! As a Maui Wedding Coordinator, here are our top five ways to incorporate personal touches into your destination wedding:


1. Signature Cocktails

Kick off the reception festivities with cocktails that you picked as a couple! These can be specially created concoctions or classic cocktails with a personalized twist. Ensure your guests see the cocktail names on your bar signage and the ingredients so they can appreciate this personalized touch.

2. Use your New Monogram

Now that you’re married, you have a new monogram! Incorporate your monogram into printed materials throughout the wedding. From programs and cocktail napkins to menus and favor tags, there are plenty of places where you can show off your new married monogram.

5. Unique Favors

Favors offer a fun way to personalize a gift to your guests. Thank them for attending your beautiful Maui wedding with a favor that will remind them of you. If you’d prefer not to give a physical gift, choosing a charitable organization to give a donation to in honor of your guests is a meaningful personal gesture.
