We are thrilled to announce a partnership with a start-up we truly admire. Wedding Spot is a brilliant solution to the stress and intimidation of planning a wedding.  They are a tiny but mighty female-owned company and the first ever online site that allows you to search, price out, and compare wedding venues without ever leaving the comfort of your bed.

You can search by category: hotel wedding, vineyard wedding, ranch wedding. That’s nothing new, but Wedding Spot calls every single venue to interview them, enters their information into a database, and offers automatic, instantaneous price quotes to users when they enter in their specific wedding details (think of Kayak, but for weddings).

Featured Hawaiian Island: Maui

The feedback from our couples here at Wanderable, as well as other sources, show that Hawaii is the number one choice for a honeymoon destination. We’re not surprised, given all the beauty the islands possess.  Each island certainly has its own unique staples that it is known for.

Here is the first featured island and the top five things not to miss while you’re there:

First Stop: Maui, otherwise known as the Valley Isle

Taking the Road to Hana:  Spend an entire day taking one of the most famous and picturesque drives that exists, the road to Hana. A scenic drive might be an understatement to describe this stretch of highway. From seascapes, to botanical gardens, to waterfall pools and everything in between, it is an essential experience in capturing the beauty that Maui encompasses. If you decide to do the drive it in one day get an early start, as the road can be busy during certain hours. Leave at sunrise and take your sweet time, returning after sunset.  If you have multiple days it is certainly worth it to stay overnight at one of the hotels or cottages in the area. There is plenty to see and do. If you do have the time, don’t miss Kaihalulu (Red Sand Beach) and/or eat at Mama’s Fish House.
