Hawaii is a very popular destination for honey moons and vacations, but it is also an ideal place for couples who want to have a destination wedding. There is so much natural beauty on the Hawaiian Islands that you would be hard pressed to find a location with more options for a fabulous outdoor beach wedding. When planning a destination wedding in Hawaii, there are some things that you’ll need to work out in advance in order to get the most out of your trip. Here are some things to keep in mind when you start putting everything together and buying items for your wedding.
Choosing the ideal beach for your destination Hawaii is crucial to having the experience be exactly what you imagine. There are several different islands that make up the state of Hawaii and each one offers something unique to its visitors. Make sure you do a lot of research ahead of time to decide which island is going to be right for you. Fortunately, there are a lot of travel websites and blogs specifically about Hawaii that will offer plenty of pictures and real-world experiences from people who have visited there to give you a great idea of what to expect.
When traveling to Hawaii, or anywhere else that requires air travel, you need to make sure you plan your wedding supply need carefully. You only have so much space in your checked bags, and certain things aren’t allowed on airplanes. You should find out where to buy sparklers when you get to Hawaii since you can’t pack them in your luggage, and you should also buy most of your other basic decorations once you arrive to avoid taking up the extra weight and space that’s available in your luggage. You should also either ship your wedding dress ahead of time or else pay for additional storage in the coat closet on the plane to avoid any damage during transit.
Once you’ve selected an island and beach for your Hawaiian destination wedding, you’ll need to find accommodations that are nearby. Also, you’ll need to keep in mind the cost because any guests that will be coming to your wedding will already be spending a lot of money to get there. You want to find the perfect balance between low cost and comfortable accommodations to ensure that everyone has a great time and can afford the trip. If you choose a hotel or resort that is too expensive, you may not have as many guests show up for your wedding and it will affect the quality of your experience.
The bottom line is that planning a destination wedding in Hawaii is going to be a lot of work and you’ll need to get most of your wedding supplies after you arrive. Though Hawaii has plenty of stores and bridal shops to provide you with what you need, you’ll need to figure out where they are before you leave since you won’t be familiar with the area. With some careful planning and a lot of research, you can plan the ultimate Hawaiian wedding and everything will go smoothly.
