Choosing the best leis for the ceremony can be very confusing, but you can’t go wrong with a maile. A lei of the “royal” open-leafed maile is used only at special occasions and celebrations. The leaves dry wonderfully and retain their aroma for quite a while, and so will be a keepsake of your special day much longer than most flower only leis.
The maile can be intertwined with flowers if you wish. The deep green contrasts beautifully with almost anything – fragrant white blooms, lovely orchids, and baby rosebuds, to name a few.
