Hawaii Is Opening October 15th

Posted by Amy on Sep 22, 2020 1:28:42 PM

Magic Island, Waikiki, and Diamond Head on the Island of Oahu.

 

To say that we’re excited would be an understatement! The plan to open Hawaii up on October 15th to travelers with a negative COVID test within 72 hours of arrival was the best news that many business owners in Hawaii have heard this year. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome our couples to Hawaii!

With the news comes one recurring question we’ve been hearing: What’s going to be open?

Here’s What’s Opening in October

 

Hotels

Some hotels are finishing up renovation projects or are opening later in the year, but most of the hotels we work with are already open or planning to open soon. If you’ve been to Hawaii before and have a favorite hotel that's not on the list below, please check their website for opening dates.

Popular hotels that are currently open or will be on October 15:

How to Book Your Travel to Hawaii

Posted by Amy on Sep 21, 2020 10:15:00 AM

After answering our couple’s questions on getting married in Hawaii, one of the most common questions we get is about how to book travel.

When’s a good time to visit? Where should we stay? Do we need a rental car?

Great questions!

Whether you're planning an elopement, small wedding, renewal, or Hawaii commitment ceremony, we wanted to provide some information to help get you started.

Quick Notes:

  • Peak season is over the Christmas/New Year’s holidays, spring break, Japanese Golden Week, and to a lesser extent, summer vacation, but there are always rooms and flights available in Hawaii.
  • Low season is roughly from early spring through June and from September to the middle of December.
  • Check flights and hotels on travel sites, such as expedia.com, and then compare directly on the airline and hotel websites.
  • For Honolulu, you’ll fly into Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) on the island of Oahu.
  • Ask us about our promotion code for great rates at the Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort.
  • Consider whether you should book a rental car or not.
  • Ask us! If you have any questions or need some recommendations, we’re happy to help.

Oahu Beach Weddings

Posted by Lauren C. on Sep 11, 2020 11:32:19 AM

Oahu beach weddings are one of the most popular and affordable ways to get married in Hawaii. While there are many beautiful beaches in the state, we believe Oahu is the best Hawaiian island for a destination wedding.

What You Need for a Beach Wedding on Oahu

Like all the Hawaiian Islands, Oahu requires a permit from the State of Hawaii to marry on a beach. We can apply for and pick up the permit for your event. At the time of writing, a Hawaii beach wedding or vow renewal permit costs $50.

Best Oahu Beach Wedding Locations

Since all beaches in Hawaii are public, most couples want to choose a beach that offers incredible beauty, some seclusion, and a certain amount of convenience. Our selection of beach wedding locations takes this into consideration.

Before going over each location, here’s a quick comparison to help you get started.

  • Most Beautiful: Sherwood Forest Beach, Waimanalo
  • Closest to Waikiki: Waialae Beach
  • Best Sunrise Location: Sandy Beach
  • If you’re staying on the North Shore: Kawela Bay
  • If you’re staying on the West Side: Paradise Cove Beach

Our Favorite Hawaii Wedding Location: Sherwood Forest Beach

Posted by Rachel H. on Aug 27, 2020 8:28:00 AM

 

Everything You Need to Know About Sherwood Forest Beach

 

Sherwood Forest Beach (aka Waimanalo Bay) is one of our most popular Hawaii beach wedding locations. Not only is it a great beach for a wedding, but it’s also a personal favorite of many of us here at Weddings of Hawaii. Although we have descriptions and photos of all our wedding locations, we wanted to share more details that may help you in choosing the perfect beach for the big day!

 

Sherwood Forest Beach is our favorite part of beautiful Waimanalo Bay.
 

 

Details:

  • Location: East shore, 40 minutes from Waikiki.
  • Available: 7 days a week, 8:00am to 4:00pm.
  • Recommended for up to 50 guests.
  • Decor: Arches and Chairs Mon-Fri (non-holidays). Runways 7 days a week.
  • Limousine: Requires one additional hour ($110). Not permitted on weekends and major holidays.
  • Recommendation: Lighting is best for the best water color is usually from 10:00am-4:00pm. Later in the afternoon offers softer, less vibrant colors.

As you probably have seen in the pictures, this location features soft white sand, clear turquoise blue water, and the striking ironwood tree forest. We often get requests for a Waimanalo beach wedding, likely because it's attention as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and Sherwood Forest Beach is the best Waimanalo has to offer.

 

Sherwood's offers amazing views in all directions.

 

The stark contrast between the beach and forest gives couples a "two-in-one-location” photo opportunity. Because of its logistics, it is also our most secluded beach location.
