Waikiki Activities and Events

Posted by Teri S. on Aug 16, 2018 11:04:39 PM

 

You may already know that we have two offices in Waikiki, and about 97% of our couples stay in in the Waikiki area. We recommend Waikiki for lodging because of all the hotel options available, the convenience of the area, and all of the events nearby!

As locals, we have tons of "things to do" that we’d recommend, but we also wanted to let you know about some current events and activities coming up.

Many events in Waikiki happen throughout the year, so if you’re reading this but coming later, you should know there will likely be similar events to choose from. We mainly want to give you an idea of some activities other than enjoying the beaches and natural beauty of Hawaii.

Hawaii Wedding Planners - Planning Hawaii Destination Weddings since 1978!

Posted by Amy on Aug 9, 2018 11:47:00 PM

 

What Makes a Good Hawaii Wedding Planner?

When having a destination wedding, there are a few important things to look for in your wedding planners. Writing this article was a great chance for us to reflect an make sure we’re doing all the important things for our couples. We teamed up and went over everything we focus on to be successful.

We believe there are four important characteristics you should look for in your wedding planner:

  1. Trust
  2. Good Communication
  3. Value
  4. Experience

1. Trust - Weddings of Hawaii has been in business for over 40 years. Although we’ve grown over time, we remain a small family and know the importance of what we do. We’re helping you prepare for one of the most important days of your life, and we want everything to be perfect! We take great pride in our online reviews (Yelp, Wedding Wire, Google), and we’re always looking for new ways to continuously improve.

2. Communication - We work as a team to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible for your ceremony. We are open Monday through Saturday, and we even try to work a few hours on Sunday. Our goal is to never leave you waiting too long for an answer. While we’re not perfect, we try to reply as soon as possible. We also try to stay logged in to our online chat bubble as much as possible to answers those quick questions you might have.

Posing Tips for Your Wedding Photos & Videos

Posted by Teri S. on Jul 19, 2018 10:43:34 PM

Capturing memories with photo and video is an important part of your day, and we want to give some tips to make sure you look your best and are comfortable with your team.

Photography

Our professional photographers will greet you with a warm aloha and lead you through everything from start to finish. They know it’s not every day you turn up for a photo shoot, so they’ll do their best to make you comfortable.

Tips to Remember:

  • Relax and enjoy yourselves. The day is meant to be fun, so don’t take the photo shoot too seriously.
  • Let your photographer know if you have any special requests. If there’s a particular pose or photo you’ve seen on our website that you know you want, just ask.
  • Have good posture. Standing and sitting up straight are more flattering.
  • Not sure about your smile? Mix it up. Your photographer will take a lot of pictures, so feel free to try a variety of expressions.
  • Don't be late to your ceremony or it'll cut into your photo/video time.
  • Following your ceremony, your photo shoot will start with group shots. If you have a large amount of guests, prep them so they know not to disappear. These take more time than you might think. 
  • Love on each other. You’ll see the emotion and joy in the final pictures!

What Kind of Weather Should You Expect on Your Hawaii Wedding Day?

Posted by Glory H. on Jul 12, 2018 9:09:00 PM

Will reality meet your expectations?

When dreaming about your Hawaiian beach wedding, you probably imagine beautiful blue skies with a handful of white, puffy clouds. You’re both wearing sunglasses as you make your way onto the beach. The trade winds are blowing. Your photographer’s snapping away, framing the moment around an amazing backdrop of ocean and mountains. The temperature’s a comfortable 83 degrees, which is around 27 degrees Celsius for our international couples ;-)

You’re probably picturing something like this:

The Best Time for Your Beach Wedding

Posted by Rachel H. on Jul 5, 2018 10:54:09 PM

 

We often get asked, “what’s the best time for my ceremony?” As with many other things for your special day, the answer is “it depends.”

What you think will be “best” all depends on your preferences and priorities. To help you decide, we have some tips for your consideration.

Before we get into details of the time of day, the most important recommendation we have is to choose a weekday as opposed to a weekend or holiday. The beaches are much less populated at any time of day during the week, allowing more seclusion for your ceremony.

 

Morning Ceremonies - 8am-10:30am

Although it’s a non-traditional time to have a wedding, this is a great time for a wedding for many of our couples.
