If you’re looking for a warm wedding destination with incredible views, friendly people and a real Aloha spirit, look no further than Hawaii.
Hawaii is made up of eight main islands including the Hawaii mainland and Oahu (home of Honolulu) as well as a number of smaller atolls, all with the potential to become your Hawaiian wedding destination. If you choose to get married on one of the smaller islands, such as Maui or Lanai, it’s important to note that you’ll be required to arrange a connecting flight or private yacht to your final destination, as it’s the only way of travelling between islands.
Oahu is the most urbanised island, with some wonderful luxurious hotels and beautiful beaches including Waikiki beach. Maui has some really interesting landscapes, from the crystal clear waters to the lava fields of Haleakala, perfect for some show-stopping wedding photographs. Kauai has more of an intimate feel, fondly known as the Garden Isle, and has some lovely spots for a Hawaiian wedding ceremony.
Spring and summer are most popular, but Hawaii is typically warm all year round due to its tropical location. Winter may see a little more rain but the difference in seasons is so minimal that a winter wedding is certainly a strong possibility. With tourism as the major industry, school holidays are the most popular times in Hawaii, so if you’re looking for a more private affair, book your celebration outside of those times.
A wedding in Hawaii is also the perfect chance to incorporate some traditional dishes, and what better way than with a luau feast.
Book yourself a wedding planner to help you organise the necessary licences and permits for getting married in Hawaii, especially if you’re looking for a beach wedding along a stretch of shoreline not occupied by a state or federal park. Such requests often call for liability insurance which your chosen wedding planner will already have. Take a look at our esteemed wedding planners to find the perfect planner for you.
