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.
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.
