Indian wedding ceremony Maui

Beach Indian Weddings

Indian weddings aren’t typically ON the beach. They’re usually overlooking the beach. Why?

  • Wind: If it’s windy, the fire required for a Hindu ceremony can be difficult to light/stay lit.
  • Noise: It’s difficult to control ambient noise from other resort guests/the public enjoying the beach.
  • Saris: Saris and sand don’t mix well.
  • Chairs: Chairs in the sand are uneven and uncomfortable for guests to sit through a 1 hour + ceremony.

See photos below from two beachfront Indian weddings: one wedding is level with the beach  and the other is elevated.
