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.
The Maldives truly is an exotic paradise. Lying at the top of an underwater mountain range, it contains 26 atolls, 1,190 coral islands and covers 90,000 square kilometres. It wasn’t until the 1990’s, when the first water bungalow was built, that the tourism industry took off, finally making wedding celebrations there a possibility. A group from the UN even visited in the 1960’s and deemed it wasn’t worth it because there were no banks, airports, or electricity. Little did they know that what the public really wanted was an escape from all that.
You’ve settled on your beach wedding and planning is underway. Whether you’re the bride, groom or guest, deciding on your attire for the day to suit both your setting and your personal style can sometimes be difficult to choose.One of the most popular styles for a beach wedding is the long, Grecian gown. Often made from a floating chiffon fabric to catch the ocean breeze it really does suit the peaceful surroundings of the ceremony. Why not try out a simpler bridal gown, free from details and distractions so you, as the bride, are the focus, not the dress. Having a beach wedding as your setting can provide such stunning views, and a crisp, white outfit will welcome your guests into a more intimate ceremony.
