Once you decide to have your wedding or vow renewal in the beautiful state of Hawaii, what steps are involved in to make sure you and your partner have an amazing, stress-free experience?
1. Apply for Your Marriage License (not required for vow renewals)
It's super easy to get a marriage license in Hawaii. Although it can be done last minute, it is required, so plan in advance.
To apply for a Hawaii marriage license, fill out the online application on the State of Hawaii's website.
Once you arrive in Hawaii, you'll both need to meet with a licensing agent to pick up your license. The process takes around 15 minutes.
