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.

Have Guests Coming to Your Hawaii Wedding? Read This!

Posted by Glory H. on Apr 19, 2018 2:45:31 PM

 

If you’re eloping in Hawaii or do not have guests attending your ceremony, all you have to worry about are the two of you. As our motto goes, “No stress...just get dressed, and we’ll do the rest.” You can relax and enjoy yourselves knowing our team will have everything in place for your special day.

If you have guests, on the other hand, you'll need to share with them information to help your day go as smoothly as possible.

Here are some of our most important tips to share with your guests.

 

1. Be on Time!

We can’t stress the importance of this enough. Your ceremony team is scheduled for a set time, and the last thing we want is for you to feel rushed!

Your ceremony team will arrive early and be ready to meet you and your guests at the meeting point. If your ceremony time is 12:00, for example, ideally you’d be set up and ready to go at that time. It’s a good idea to tell your guests they should arrive by 11:45.

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!

Getting Married in Hawaii - Everything You Need to Know

Posted by Lauren C. on Feb 22, 2018 6:51:26 PM

 

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.

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.

Ka Moana Lu'au - Thanks for an Amazing Night!

Posted by Glory H. on Jan 25, 2018 11:55:00 PM

A Hawaiian luau is an experience most visitors to Hawaii want to have, and we’re always happy to recommend our favorites. We’ll help you pick the right one for you, and we’ll even help with the reservation.

To make sure we’re providing the best recommendations, we like to visit a luau every couple months to experience for ourselves. This month, it was the new Ka Moana Luau

When we heard Chief’s Luau was moving to another part of the island, we were a little disappointed. Chief puts on a great show, but we also really liked the location in Sea Life Park on the East-side of Oahu. When we heard a new luau was moving in, we couldn’t wait to head over and try it out!
