Wedding Location

We are planning our wedding for September. We are in a quandry over location. Our planner has recommended Kapulua, Ironwood beach, or Makena Cove for a morning wedding. I'm a little concerned about rain on the west side.

Although we are staying at the Sheraton, driving to Makena is not a probleas there will only be 6 guests and us. Any experience or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

The rain on the west side will be minimal at best. Although we can't predict what the future weather will be!! Kapalua Bay in September would be absolutely gorgeous. The other's will be too. In this case, I would go where you would be most comfortable and not worry about the weather. It can rain anywhere at any time on the island. Make sure your planner has a plan B just in case.

One additional thing; we are planning on having brunch or lunch at the Plantation House afterward.

Kapalua to Makena cove would take an hour plus one way. I'd stay in the Kapalua Area for the wedding.

I agree w/your wedding planner. Ironwood beach is very private, and the better choice for a wedding especially if you are staying at the Sheraton

Dont sweat the weather, you have enough to going on
