Waimanalo Beach Weddings

Posted by Teri S. on Aug 29, 2019 5:48:44 PM
AS OF MARCH 2022, THIS LOCATION IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE DUE TO BILL 38, WHICH BANS COMMERCIAL ACTIVITY IN WAIMANALO.

 

 

Waimanalo Beach weddings are by far some of the most beautiful ceremonies you'll see on Oahu! With around three miles of pristine beach to choose from, a turquoise blue ocean, three islands off in the distance, and nestled by beautiful mountains on all sides, it's no wonder that so many couples choose to say "I do" on this stunning beach!

From the moment you drive past the Makapu'u Lookout, you'll understand why Waimanalo Beach was named one of the best in the world. While the drive around the coast is breathtaking, once you reach that lookout point and see the sweeping views, glistening white sand, and turquoise water, you'll know you made the right choice for your wedding day.

As you pass Makapu'u Beach and head into Waimanalo, you'll notice a calmer pace and several areas that make you want to stop and get your toes in the sand, but we recommend continuing past Waimanalo Beach Park and instead head to our favorite beach ...

We’re always excited to share all the Hawaii wedding traditions that help make your day so special.

We like to break it down into two sections:

  • Hawaii Ceremony Traditions (What happens during your ceremony.)
  • Traditional Hawaiian Elements (Flowers, attire, music, & dance)

Although there are many possible Hawaii traditions, here are the most common for weddings, renewals, and Hawaii commitment ceremonies.

Waikiki Activities and Events

Posted by Teri S. on Aug 16, 2018 11:04:39 PM

 

You may already know that we have two offices in Waikiki, and about 97% of our couples stay in in the Waikiki area. We recommend Waikiki for lodging because of all the hotel options available, the convenience of the area, and all of the events nearby!

As locals, we have tons of "things to do" that we’d recommend, but we also wanted to let you know about some current events and activities coming up.

Many events in Waikiki happen throughout the year, so if you’re reading this but coming later, you should know there will likely be similar events to choose from. We mainly want to give you an idea of some activities other than enjoying the beaches and natural beauty of Hawaii.

10 Questions Commonly Asked by Your Guests

Posted by Teri S. on Apr 5, 2018 11:28:00 PM

 

It’s not uncommon for family and friends to reach out to us before your Hawaii wedding, and we often hear many of the same questions. We’re always happy to help, but we thought it’d be nice to provide some of the information ahead of time to help you and your guests plan better.

We focus on providing a stress-free wedding or vow renewal for our couples, but we want your entire party to have a relaxing, wonderful experience.

We feel this is a great link to send your guests, and we encourage them to send us an email (coordinator@wedhawaii.com) if they have a question not answered here. That’d help us improve the list!

And one bonus tip for all guests: Don’t be late! If the couple is waiting for you, that means they are losing ceremony, photography, video, and transportation time (depending on their wedding package). Be safe and arrive early!

Okay, here we go. We hope these help!

Hawaii Destination Wedding Checklist

Posted by Teri S. on Mar 15, 2018 11:32:56 PM
One thing we’ve learned over the years is that every couple we meet is unique in one way or another. It’s one reason we love chatting with couples during a phone consultation early on in their planning. Not only can we answer a lot of your questions, but we can also get to know what’s important to you and what kind of ceremony you’re looking for.

We have couples who book over a year in advance, and we have plenty of couples who decide on a last-minute elopement or vow renewal. Planning is obviously different for everyone, but we always like to provide you with a guide and as much information as possible, so we’ve put together a list to help you plan your destination wedding to Hawaii.
