Brides ask the question "I am engaged now what do I do?"

Aloha from Maui, Hawaii
Yours truly has just popped the question. You said YES! You are now officially engaged, the families have been told, what is next?

There will be lots of decisions that need to be made:
What to wear on your wedding day and night? What type of wedding favors should you have?  What type of flowers will you have at your wedding? When and where should you get married? Where will you honeymoon? What photographer will you use?

Without a doubt the most important step is to hire a wedding coordinator and a travel agent who specializes in your requested destination.
You hire a coordinator to help make your wedding planning fun and stress free. Hiring a professional travel agency will assure your honeymoon or destination wedding travel will be exactly as you dreamed of.

Consider this quote from CNN travel: Travel agents nowadays are not your Grandmothers travel agent. In an age where travelers of all ages turn to the Internet to book flight and hotel reservations, modern travel agents are offering expert advice on cruises and tour packages to far-flung locales, advice on the best of everything a particular city has to offer, exclusive perks, hidden discount prices and the security of an adviser in case of inconvenience or disaster.

“Successful agents know that their customers have access to lots of travel information -- often too much -- and want time-saving guidance, exclusivity and security in a complicated world.”

Or this quote by Travel & Leisure magazine: “The average traveler is spending something like ... nine web sessions and visiting 21 websites in order to book their travel," "Travelers are really looking for some advice, somebody who can answer questions for them, somebody who has experience in traveling, and they can't always get that online."

Your planning process with Travel to Maui will begin with a consulting appointment with one of our Hawaii Destination Specialist.

You will rest assured knowing your vacation plans are exactly what you are looking for!

Check out our comments from our most recent clients:
 “Let me begin by saying unequivocally that you are a shining star within your industry. Besides your great prices and your ability to handle a families entire vacation planning from A to Z, your knowledge of the islands and the resorts is second to none. I found your timely follow-ups and sincere phone calls to be a delight given today’s business executive acumen. What more can I say: you are the best I have ever dealt with and I am sincere in saying that if I choose to head to the islands again -- well, I have your contact info and don't be surprised if you hear from me.”
The resort was very, very nice. Their beach was wonderful and the rooms were exactly as you described them. We truly loved the trip and what's more are we had no surprises on the negative side of the scale but more than several on the positive side. I have given your info to several friends and associates in the hopes of passing some business your way for all you accomplished for me and my family.” Larry Kanter Scottsdale, AZ

Thanks so much, Marie!! While the on-line forums are helpful for background information, it's nice to know there's a local professional like you available to help negotiate the process. We can enjoy the planning rather than stressing about it!” Laurie D. from Portland, Oregon
