Elopement Packages - Choose What's Perfect for Your Special Day!

Posted by Lauren C. on Aug 27, 2021 9:15:00 AM

 

Now more than ever, elopement packages are an excellent option for couples looking for a stress-free way to plan their wedding, and with some of the most stunning beaches in the world, eloping in Hawaii is a no-brainer!

Did you know that elopements and destination weddings can be much more affordable than traditional weddings? Many couples can fly to Hawaii, stay seven nights, have their wedding, and still spend less than they would've for a wedding at home. 

Our elopement packages below are for the island of Oahu. More details can be found by clicking the "Oahu Wedding Packages" from the menu above. For Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island elopement and wedding packages, please follow the link from the menu above. 

 

Can you picture yourself eloping in one of the most beautiful places in the world? 
 
 

We already mentioned that Hawaii has very affordable destination wedding options, but what’s “affordable,” you ask? Our Hawaii wedding packages range from $279 to $8,550, with most couples spending a small fraction of the cost of a traditional wedding (2020 prices).

If this sounds like it could be a good fit for you, check out more of our elopement package details below.

*With any of these packages, you choose which stunning Hawaii wedding location will be the place you tie the knot (and all of our packages can be customized). 😁*

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 for many places in the world is a small wedding, usually with around 20 and no more than 50 guests, but a Hawaii micro wedding is usually smaller, often with the couple and a few 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.

Hawaii Sunrise Wedding

Posted by Teri S. on Jan 19, 2021 3:08:49 PM

 

Although most couples would rather not wake up early for a sunrise wedding in Hawaii, it is an option to consider. The thought of getting ready early, driving to the location, and arriving while it’s still dark is not for most, but there are some advantages and reasons why sunrise is a good time to have a Hawaii wedding.

 

 

Pros of a Hawaii Sunrise Wedding

More Seclusion

It’s quiet in the morning. While there might be some people out walking the beach for exercise, beachgoers aren’t out yet. You’ll feel more like you have the beach to yourself, and there’s something really nice about the early morning in Hawaii.

Beach Weddings - Everything You Need to Know

Posted by Glory H. on Nov 23, 2020 11:51:00 AM

 

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.

Tipping on Your Hawaii Destination Wedding

Posted by Lauren C. on Nov 4, 2020 2:03:00 PM

 

Having a wedding or vow renewal is not something done often, so one of the questions that often comes up is, "Is tipping common? If so, how much?" 

The short answer: Yes, tipping is common in the wedding industry. As we like to say, "tipping isn't expected, but it's always appreciated."

If you Google this question, there are many articles about tipping vendors. Just remember that many of those are for large, traditional weddings. We're trying to make it easy with this article by letting you know what's common here in Hawaii.

 

Who to Tip

It's common to consider tipping anyone who performs a service on your special day. 

  • Officiant
  • Photographer/Videographer
  • Musician/Dancer
  • Limo Driver
  • Hair and Makeup Artist
