Tips for Eloping: 9 Dos and Don'ts for Your Destination Wedding

9 Tips for Planning Your Destination Elopement

 

We’ve been helping couples plan their Hawaii elopement for over 40 years, and we’ve seen the term “elopement” change over time.

“Eloping” used to mean the couple getting married in secret, then telling family and friends they were married after the wedding took place.

Nowadays, “eloping” typically means having a destination wedding, but it's just the couple celebrating their special day together. For some, it could even be a small wedding with family and closest friends to witness your vows!

SANDY BEACH Weddings - EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

 

Sandy Beach is located on the southeast coast of Oahu and is a well-loved beach by locals and visitors alike.

As with all our Hawaii beach wedding locations, we have photos and videos in our Sandy Beach gallery, but we like sharing all the details about each location to help you decide if this is the best location for your beach wedding!

Note: Sandy Beach is best for weekday ceremonies or early mornings on the weekends. Weekends get very crowded with the local population.

 

While we wouldn't normally hold the ceremony this close to the waves, your photographer will likely encourage you to get your feet wet for some shots ;)

What to Wear for Your Hawaii Wedding

Posted by Rachel H. on Jan 30, 2020 8:41:00 AM

 

Not sure what to wear for the big day? Wear whatever you want!

 

They did have a dress and shirt for the ceremony. But after the “I do’s,” they rocked the ultimate beach wedding look!

 

As you can see, a beach wedding in Hawaii can be quite casual. :)

Seriously though, it’s your big day, and there’s no “correct” attire for a beautiful wedding in Hawaii. Whether you have a vision of an elegant gown or a casual aloha-print outfit, it’ll all work as long as it’s something you love.

Here are some pointers from our experience that may help you figure out what to wear for your Hawaii wedding.

The Best Time for Your Beach Wedding

Posted by Rachel H. on Jan 14, 2020 12:12:00 PM

 

We often get asked, “what’s the best time for my beach wedding?” As with many other things for your special day, the answer is “it depends.”

What you think will be “best” all depends on your preferences and priorities. To help you decide, we have some tips for your consideration.

Before we get into details of the time of day, here are three things we'd like to mention: 

  1. The most important recommendation we have is to choose a weekday as opposed to a weekend or holiday. The beaches are significantly less populated at any time of day during the week, allowing more seclusion for your ceremony.
  2. If you’re wondering about the best time of year for a beach wedding, here in Hawaii it’s literally any time! Florida beach weddings are recommended in March, April, May, November, or December, but all twelve months in Hawaii are lovely. We have amazing Hawaii wedding-day weather year-round so whenever you’re available, you can do a Hawaii destination wedding.
  3. The information below is based on typical lighting conditions for that time of day, but the weather matters. Mother nature can make a mid-day ceremony look like dusk, but our photographers and videographers know how to get the best shots in any weather conditions. 

 

Morning Ceremonies - 8am-10:30am

Although it’s a non-traditional time to have a wedding, this is a great time for a wedding for many of our couples.
