How much does a wedding cost at the Haiku Mill?

The cost of a wedding at the Haiku Mill, as per the official FAQ, will depend on the number of guests attending, the style of dinner chosen, the amount of time you rent the venue, your selection of chairs, the number of flowers you want, the time of year/day of week, and the entertainment requirements.  Based on these factors, as you can see, the costs can greatly vary, but the venue does state that you should be prepared to budget at least $45,000 for the full day for an event with fewer than 45 guests or about $1,000 per head for a full-service wedding.

NOTE:  These fees were sourced from third-party websites the venue advertised on.  Use these estimates as just that — an estimate.  For exact pricing, please call the venue directly as so many factors can affect the price.

As for just renting the venue for 12-hours, the site fees are said to be in the $7,000 range, according to LuxuryRetreats.com and would include all of the existing lighting, but everything else, ranging from the chairs to the glasses, must be brought in.  The website states this is a barebones price that would not include much.

Gaelan via IntimateWeddings.com, for example, showcased a variety of pictures of a wedding held here, with the cost of the wedding being $6,000 for the ceremony only with no guests.

According to one review on WeddingWire.com, you have to go through a “consulting group,” rather than the venue directly to book the wedding.  From her research, it would cost $3,500 for the wedding planning, another $5,000 for the production coordination and up to $15,000 in catering costs for up to 50 people.  This was a generic range, however, and the reviewer did not it was hard to get exact prices, seeing you could not bring in any outside vendors, with the exception of a few, as we noted below.

A forum member on this TheKnot.com forum thread, when she emailed the venue, received a reply stating she should be prepared to budget $1,000 per guest.

We found another member on this TheKnot.com thread who said she was quoted $4,500 for the site fee, plus another 20% for the coordination.  On top of this, it would be yet another $200 to rent the bridal suite and another $200 to have an onsite representative on site.

A listing on SimpleMauiWedding.net offered a wedding package at the venue, which included up to three hours use of the property and more inclusions, including a photographer for two hours, for $8,225 plus tax.

Additional costs to consider

As the location does encounter rain lasting anywhere from five to 15 minutes a day, the venue does allow you to rent a large tent to cover the open foyer and dining area for an additional fee, outside of the site charges, which is said to be about $2,000 per tent, a fee that would include the entire setup and tear down.  For some weddings, more than one tent may be required for larger groups.

Venue options

Site fees include access to the Mill, the brick and stone structure which holds a majority of the events; the Cane House, a private lounge filled with antiques, suited for the private bridal suite; the Mango Tree, which is strung with lights and an antique chandelier, suited for a cocktail hour; and the Courtyard, an open-air French-inspired courtyard with a farm table able to seat up to 12 guests.

The entire venue can accommodate up to 100 people, but this will greatly depend on the setup of your event.

Tips to know

The venue does work with a list of trusted and professional preferred vendors who understand the delicate nature of the property and have experience working onsite.  For this reason, the venue does allow one vendor who isn’t on the list per event, but this vendor must be approved and provided all of the necessary insurance requirements to the club before working.  However, any vendors that are considered caterers, coordinators, bar services, transportation, valet, tent providers, washroom providers, DJ services, lighting, draping and rigging may not be brought in as an unauthorized professional.

You do not have to rent the venue for the full day as they do offer small block times for smaller weddings, often with fewer than 80 people.  For couples who want to take advantage, the venue allows you to book a few hours to take photos and host the ceremony.
