10 Tips for Your Hawaii Wedding Day

Posted by Glory H. on Dec 7, 2017 9:45:23 PM

 

We do our best to make sure your day goes as smoothly and perfectly as possible, but there are a few things that are up to you. These are the tips and reminders we’re always trying to communicate to our couples.

We speak from experience here, so please trust us that these are some of the best tips you should consider for your special day.

Here Are Our Top 10 Tips:

1. Bring Your Marriage License and Wedding Rings

Don’t forget your marriage license and wedding rings! Your officiant needs your license, and your rings are part of the ceremony. You will need to pick up your marriage license from the Hawaii Department of Health or a license agent before your ceremony to be legally married. Here are more details on the marriage license process.

(Note: a marriage license is not required for vow renewals.)

A Hawaii Destination Wedding - How Much Does It Cost?

Posted by Rachel H. on Nov 30, 2017 11:51:53 PM

 

What does it cost to get married in Hawaii?

We get asked this question a lot, and it’s a tough one to answer. 

If you Google it, you’ll likely come to an article by The Knot. While The Knot is a good website (we check it out ourselves), its cost breakdown is misleading.

Before you look at these numbers, please know their estimates look astronomically high to us. This is not to say they’re wrong, but these estimates must be for traditional weddings with high guest counts.

In comparison, most of our weddings are beach, waterfall, or park weddings with guest counts from 0-50. Very different. You can see on our wedding packages page that we have seven packages running from $230 to $7,525, with our most popular package at $1,175 (we'll look more at that later). 

Let’s take a look at their cost estimates and then compare them to ours.

Video for Your Hawaii Wedding ... or only Photos?

Posted by Lauren C. on Nov 9, 2017 3:10:29 PM

 

Almost all of our couples book a package with photography. Every couple wants photos with the amazing Hawaii scenery, like ocean backdrops, the beach, mountains, and palm trees. That’s a given, and it’s what makes Hawaii weddings so special.

 

Highlight video of a happy couple.

How to Have a Stress-Free Destination Wedding in Hawaii

Posted by Rachel H. on Nov 2, 2017 1:03:00 PM

 

Don’t let your big day become a big stress! We have put together some quick tips from our previous couples and coordinators to help make sure you are able to enjoy every part of your wedding.

Be Okay Asking for Help

Is it your first time to Hawaii and not sure which locations to choose? Which hotel to book? Where to have a dinner reception? Not sure if you should book a rental car? Let us know!

Although your wedding coordinators are not travel agents, they know their island home very well. They would be happy to share some insight or offer their opinion. Even if you have never been to Hawaii before, you already have ohana (family) here to help. You can call or schedule a time for us to call you if you'd like to chat. Sometimes just getting in touch is enough to calm those nerves, and we always like talking to our couples :)
