Elopement Packages - Choose What's Perfect for Your Special Day!

Posted by Lauren C. on Jan 24, 2022 9:15:00 AM

 

Now more than ever, elopement packages are an excellent option for couples looking for a stress-free way to plan their wedding, and with some of the most stunning beaches in the world, eloping in Hawaii is a no-brainer!

Did you know that elopements and destination weddings can be much more affordable than traditional weddings? Many couples can fly to Hawaii, stay seven nights, have their wedding, and still spend less than they would've for a wedding at home. 

Our elopement packages below are for the island of Oahu. More details can be found by clicking the "Oahu Wedding Packages" from the menu above. For Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island elopement and wedding packages, please follow the link from the menu above. 

 

Can you picture yourself eloping in one of the most beautiful places in the world? 
 
 

We already mentioned that Hawaii has very affordable destination wedding options, but what’s “affordable,” you ask? Our Hawaii wedding packages range from $295 to $8,825, with most couples spending a small fraction of the cost of a traditional wedding (2022 prices).

If this sounds like it could be a good fit for you, check out more of our elopement package details below.

*With any of these packages, you choose which stunning Hawaii wedding location will be the place you tie the knot. Public locations require a $50 permit we obtain for you from the State of Hawaii, and we do offer private venus for additional fees. Keep in mind that all of our packages can be customized. 😁*

An Affordable Destination Wedding - Tips for a Dream Wedding on a Budget

7 Tips to Plan an Affordable Destination Wedding

 

Most couples don't think of Hawaii when planning a cheap and affordable destination wedding, but when we researched How Much a Hawaii Destination Wedding Costs, we were surprised at how affordable it could be compared to a traditional wedding.

Is a destination wedding really cheaper than a traditional wedding? Yes, in most cases it's cheaper.

It was surprising that a traditional wedding averages over $25,000, yet many of our couples spend less than $8000 to fly to Hawaii, spend seven nights in a hotel, and have a beautiful Hawaiian wedding ceremony.

Every couple is different, of course, and there are many options when planning either a destination or a traditional wedding.

A destination wedding is cheaper on average, and we thought of some ideas to help you plan the most affordable dream wedding possible.

Getting Married in Hawaii - Everything You Need to Know

Posted by Lauren C. on Nov 2, 2021 8:15:00 AM

(Updated 11-02-2021)

Getting married in Hawaii is easier, more affordable, and less stressful than many couples think. We know planning from a distance can seem tough, but with over 40 years of experience performing weddings, we know how to make your dream destination wedding absolutely amazing! As we like to say, “No stress...just get dressed, and we’ll do the rest.”

How to Get Married in Hawaii

 

1. Research the Hawaiian Islands

Oahu is the most popular island to visit, followed in order by Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island. All islands offer the quintessential Hawaiian elements, yet they’re all unique in their own ways.

Oahu is known as "the gathering place." It’s home to Waikiki, Honolulu, Pearl Harbor, Diamond Head, and some of the state’s most beautiful beaches. Oahu also has an abundance of restaurants, cafes, bars, shopping centers, movie theaters, and other activities.

We are based on Oahu, and our Oahu wedding packages are the most popular choice for most couples.

Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island are quieter and more relaxed. While there’s plenty to do as far as going to the beaches, hiking, shopping, and eating out, these islands have a more rural feel and are perfect for those looking for a chance to get away from it all.

2. Decide What Kind of Wedding You’d Like to Have

A Hawaii wedding can be a simple ceremony in the sand for a few hundred dollars, or it can be a large hotel wedding for tens of thousands of dollars.

Tipping on Your Hawaii Destination Wedding

Posted by Lauren C. on Nov 4, 2020 2:03:00 PM

 

Having a wedding or vow renewal is not something done often, so one of the questions that often comes up is, "Is tipping common? If so, how much?" 

The short answer: Yes, tipping is common in the wedding industry. As we like to say, "tipping isn't expected, but it's always appreciated."

If you Google this question, there are many articles about tipping vendors. Just remember that many of those are for large, traditional weddings. We're trying to make it easy with this article by letting you know what's common here in Hawaii.

 

Who to Tip

It's common to consider tipping anyone who performs a service on your special day.

  • Officiant
  • Photographer/Videographer
  • Musician/Dancer
  • Hair and Makeup Artist

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
