Posted by Amy on Apr 1, 2022 10:15:00 AM

After answering our couple’s questions about 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, 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.

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



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.

Waikiki Beach Weddings

What to Know for a Waikiki Beach Wedding


Waikiki Beach is probably the most famous beach in Hawaii. Located on the south coast of Oahu fronting the hotels, nearly every visitor knows this stretch of sandy paradise.

It’s important to note that the State of Hawaii does not issue wedding permits for most of Waikiki Beach. There is one particular part on the western end of Waikiki Beach (Kahanamoku Beach) where a permit can be obtained for beach weddings, and this is where we hold the ceremonies.

Unlike our other Hawaii beach wedding locations, we don’t yet have a dedicated photo gallery for this location. We have done several ceremonies here because couples have asked for this location. You can think of Waikiki Beach as our “secret menu” item, not on the usual menu, but if you ask for it, we can do it for you!
