Posted by Rachel H. on Jun 24, 2020 9:02:26 AM

Introduction to Micro Weddings

Micro weddings are rising in popularity, and now more than ever is a great time to consider if it may be right for you. Here at Weddings of Hawaii, we’ve been specializing in destination weddings of all sizes for over 40 years.

Thousands of couples have benefitted from the happy-medium of a micro wedding, and we’d love to help you determine if you could be one of them!

 

Small, intimate beach weddings are the perfect kind of micro wedding.

 

What Is a Micro Wedding?

A micro wedding is a small wedding, usually with around 20 and no more than 50 guests. Generally, it is more streamlined but similar to a traditional wedding, with everything on a smaller scale. Aside from the guest count, the biggest difference is that the reception is more casual and less structured than a traditional wedding reception.

Beach Weddings - Everything You Need to Know

Posted by Glory H. on May 15, 2020 4:50:07 PM

 

Beach weddings are in a class of their own when it comes to outdoor weddings. Gardens and wineries are beautiful, but there is something genuinely magical about an oceanfront ceremony. (Full disclosure, we have been doing Hawaii beach weddings since 1978, so we’re probably a little biased.)

 

Can you see your toes in the sand with the ocean as the majestic backdrop for your special day?

 

A romantic seaside dream for many, but with so many venue options, it can be hard to decide if it's right for both of you. Here’s everything we could think of to help couples determine whether a beach wedding is a good fit for them.

Choosing the Right Beach for Your Wedding

For most couples, a beach wedding means a destination wedding, but for the lucky few who live near a beach, you’ll have a slightly different approach as you may have a larger guest count. You may need first to decide if you’ll be planning a destination wedding vs. a traditional wedding.

Waikiki Beach Weddings

What to Know for a Waikiki Beach Wedding

 

Waikiki Beach is probably the most famous beach in Hawaii. Located on the south coast of Oahu fronting the hotels, nearly every visitor knows this stretch of sandy paradise.

It’s important to note that the State of Hawaii does not issue wedding permits for most of Waikiki Beach. There is one particular part on the western end of Waikiki Beach (Kahanamoku Beach) where a permit can be obtained for beach weddings, and this is where we hold the ceremonies.

Unlike our other Hawaii beach wedding locations, we don’t yet have a dedicated photo gallery for this location. We have done several ceremonies here because couples have asked for this location. You can think of Waikiki Beach as our “secret menu” item, not on the usual menu, but if you ask for it, we can do it for you!

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

Posted by Rachel H. on Apr 20, 2020 3:22:15 PM

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!
