Wedding Planning Tips and Ideas
The truth about having a destination wedding in Hawaii is that not everyone is going to be happy with you. Not everyone will be able to make it to your wedding, some might feel a little envious, people could think your wedding photos are so perfect they must be photoshopped, a bridesmaid could get sunburned, the list goes on and on. But, if this is what you have your heart set on, there is a way to make it happen. And you can have it be as simple or lavish as you want it to be. To be honest, even a simple barefoot beach wedding is simply stunning and very special. These barefoot beach weddings are often the choice for vow renewals. Here are some ideas and tips to help get you inspired.
Featured Wedding Services
Check out some of these featured businesses! Get the scoop on wedding venues, price out wedding packages and see what wedding services are offered. Hawaii has a lot to offer in the way of wedding services. However, a lot of the information and recommendations are passed word-of-mouth. So, this is a helpful resource to get you acquainted with local businesses. Happy planning!
Wedding and Vow Renewal Resources by Island
If you've answered the question "Will I get married in Hawaii?" with an emphatic "Yes!", the next big question to answer is: "On which beautiful tropical island will I say, ʻI do!'?" Refer to our Pick Your Paradise article to help you get started. Just about any island will do. Oahu, Maui, Kauai and Hawaii Island each offer everything from barefoot beach weddings to extravagant resort or private estate weddings. Costs will tend to be higher on Oahu and Maui and lower on Kauai and Hawaii Island, but costs will ultimately depend on your venue and vendors. Lanai is also a great option if you're looking to get away from the crowds.

Malama the Marriage - Dream Dates in Hawaii
The Hawaiian word mālama means "To take care of, tend, attend, care for, preserve, protect, beware, save, maintain." Whether you're newlyweds on your honeymoon, empty nesters renewing your vows, or young parents with keiki, children, in tow, take some time to, as locals say, mālama the marriage. Escape for a bit. Bond with your spouse or rekindle the flames of passion. Hawaii is a place of adventure; and doing something new together might be just what your marriage needs. Here aloha is more than a greeting; it's more than the Hawaiian word for love. It's a lifestyle of sharing, warmth, acceptance, covering of shame, allowances for shortcomings and an unwarranted generosity. May these values become part of your wedding covenant.
