Have you ever thought about a wedding in Hawaii ? My wife and I did 5 years ago and it was exhilerating. It took a year to plan the wedding to make sure everything went as planned and smooth, sure there were a couple of minor set backs (explain later ) but all in all, it was everything we thought it would be, then some. Our wedding reception, we had like 1200 people there, actually it was a luau. They knew we were coming because the hotel concierge let them on the secret that we just got married that day. So we were like the host of the party, one big wedding reception.
If your think of having a Hawaiin wedding, here’s somethings to do and remember you need to do.
Who will perform you wedding and services. We chose Above Heavens Gate services in Oahu and I would recommend them to any one. We had a sunrise wedding which captured the tropical flowers and weater falls in brilliant colors. The services you choose will be able to give you all the details and set everything up you need for you hawaiin beach wedding, a garden wedding or even a nautical wedding. From getting your marriage liscense, tux rentals, flowers, wedding cake, make up, limo and location of the type of wedding you would have.
Once you have your wedding services booked and the date set, of course make your reservations with the airline for your Hawaii bound trip.
Get a copy of a marriage license form, fill it out and send it to the state of Hawaii
Have the groom, bestman and groomsmen measured for their tux and rent them there unless you want to carry them with you. Whe we went to pick ours up, the bestmans tux were to small so it was a mad scramble to get the right tux at the right size, and he is a pretty big man.
While you are at the hotel, they offer many site seeing tours, excursions and of course the luau’s, make sure you book the bride and grrom and their wedding party the night they’ve been married.
Keep in contact with the wedding service to make sure everything is on track. If the wedding service company is good, they will have everything arranged for you per your specifications and instructions.
Make sure you allow yourself extra time there before your wedding and after the wedding to enjoy what Hawaii has to offer. Soak up the warm tropical climate, the lush tropical flowers, the beaches, the surfing, the nightly attractions, pearl harbor of course and so much more. I would suggest a car rental to drive all over the island including going to the north shore. The drive is very scenic and there also also places to stop on the way to view the luscious tropical gardens. Hmmm, just thinking about it makes me want to go back!
