Terms of Service
The planning process and the booking of wedding vendors, floral orders etc. you hired JMW for take valuable time. Your minister and wedding vendors would have reserved their time especially for you on the date of your wedding. By submitting your reservation, you agree to be bound by the provisions of these Terms of Service. Just Maui Weddings™ reserves the right to make changes to these Terms of Service without notice; any such changes will apply prospectively only. Unless Just Maui Weddings™ agrees otherwise in writing via email only, these Terms of Service constitute the entire agreement between you and Just Maui Weddings™ concerning the subject matter covered here.
Deposits and Service Payments
The CLIENT will pay a fee to JMW for the Services, this fee shall be payable in two payments, the first is 50% of total cost ( excluding the HIBISCUS and LAST MINUTE PACKAGE ) at the time of the booking and 50% two months or 45 days before the wedding date. The deposit is refundable less a $500 fee for work already performed ONLY if client cancels at least 3 months prior to their reserved wedding date. Last Minute Package canceled no matter of the time-frame or reason is non refundable. If wedding is canceled with less than three months notice, the deposit will not be refunded but can be held as a credit toward a future wedding date to be determined based on availability.
Beach Wedding policies: The county of Maui does NOT allow for beach location weddings with out a permit. We will obtain this for you on your behalf. Items such as chairs, arches or similar type of structures are not allowed. If you are being married on a beach, a Beach Wedding Permit fee of $50- $150 depending on the size of your party (maximum 10 including staff) will be added as required by the Department Of Land and Natural Resources.
In case of rain or inclement weather, we will either: 1. Change the wedding location to a nearby drier location, or, 2. Perform your wedding in your hotel room or condo, or, 3.Try to arrange for another indoor location, or, 4. If possible, and agreed to by both parties, reschedule for another day. Some locations may require the payment of an additional fee by you outside this contract. For example, churches may require a donation of upwards of $300.00. If rescheduling for another day, there may be a fee per vendor canceled or rescheduled. If we are unable to perform any part of or all of this contract due to act of God, force majure, labor disputes and strikes, or other forces beyond the control of the parties, the parties herein agree that our liability is limited to a refund of the payments made for that part which was not received or for all of this contract.

Wedding Duration and Permits
The wedding ceremony’s duration will be between 20-45 minutes, as confirmed by email from Just Maui Weddings™. The duration may be subsequently changed with Just Maui Wedding’s written approval. You understand that any applicable beach use permit that we obtain for your wedding is issued for a specific 2-hour time-frame, which cannot be exceeded under State law. Therefore, Just Maui Weddings™ is not obligated to perform any services for you outside the time frame indicated on such beach use permit. Go to reservation page.
You may cancel your wedding only by written notice (“Cancellation Notice”) (NO verbal or text message will be accepted) sent to email us. No-shows on the date of the reserved wedding date are treated under the same terms as cancellations. JMW will grant no refunds for weddings cancelled on or before Holidays, Valentines Day, New Year's Eve, New Year's Day, Easter Sunday, 4th of July, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and Sunrise weddings incl. any vanity dates such as 6/6/2020 or 8/8/2020 or 9/19/2020 or 10/10/2020 or 12/12/2020 or 02/22/22. Due to CC fees for both processing payments and refunds, accounting will take out an added 5% surcharge + the standard 10% cancellation fee.
Just Maui Weddings™ will make a reasonable effort to avoid canceling a wedding due to inclement weather, acts of God, a pandemic or any other reason outside its control; but if its effort fails, Just Maui Weddings™ will not bear any liability for its resulting cancellation of the wedding; and you will not be entitled to a refund. Instead, you will be entitled rescheduling your wedding for a date that is mutually agreeable to you and Just Maui Weddings™ and that is within 12 months of the originally reserved date. Go to reservation page.
You may request rescheduling the date or time of your wedding only by written notice (the “Rescheduling Notice”) sent to email us. Just Maui Weddings™ intends to accommodate any Rescheduling Notice, but rescheduling a wedding for your desired date may not always be possible based on Just Maui Weddings™’ bookings calendar. Therefore, Just Maui Weddings™ reserves the right to accept or reject a Rescheduling Notice in its sole discretion.
If you send a Rescheduling Notice fewer than 60 calendar days before your reserved wedding date, and it is accepted, you shall pay Just Maui Weddings™ a rescheduling fee of $200 no later than 14 days before your originally reserved wedding date (the “Rescheduling Fee”); all of your other payment obligations and deadlines will be unaffected by the rescheduled wedding date. If you send a Rescheduling Notice 60 or more calendar days before your reserved wedding date, and it is accepted, you will not have to pay a Rescheduling Fee only for the first such request; all subsequent requests are subject to the Rescheduling Fee. Just Maui Weddings™ is entitled to charge the Rescheduling Fee to any credit or debit card you have at any time provided to Just Maui Weddings™. Go to reservation page.
Other than Deposits and Rescheduling Fees, any payments you make toward the Package Price of a wedding that you cancel or reschedule, will be credited toward a new booking by you for a wedding to occur at a date that is mutually agreeable to you and Just Maui Weddings™ and that is within 12 months of the originally reserved date.
Planner hereby reserves and retains the right to cancel any and all of the above Services with or without cause by providing written notice to Client.
