Destination Weddings Hawaii: Advice and Tips

We recommend that you hire a wedding coordinator. For someone not living in Hawaii, it can be quite overwhelming to plan and organize everything. Plus wedding coordinators in Hawaii are not that expensive. Remember, you have loads of stuff to think about for a perfect beach wedding in Hawaii. You have to think about your Marriage License, the Minister, the flowers and leis, venue decorations, etc.

Best time to get married in Hawaii is usually in the morning or late afternoon. This will help you avoid mid-day heat.

In order for you to have plenty of time to relax, it is recommended that you schedule your wedding day in the middle of your stay. This will give you time to settle down and check whether everything is going according to your plan.
