Wedding in Hawaii
Saying "I Do" in Hawaii
You came to the right place if you're looking to have a wedding. I had my wedding on Oahu. I searched far and wide looking for the right price and the right atmosphere. I found a lot of pretty, expensive places that was not for us. I did not want the typical beach wedding - Lord knows I wouldn't want to get my dress dirty. I saw pictures of the YWCA courtyard and it was perfect for us. Our Hawaii wedding (venue, food, photographer, DJ, pastor, and lights) cost us $2700 for 60 guests. We served Hors d’Oeuvres and had cocktails available for purchase. You can have a wedding in Hawaii on a budget!
You may say "YWCA - never!" Well have a look..... YWCA Honolulu
It got even better when our cousin gifted us 1 night at the Ihilani Marriott at Ko'Olina (now Four Seasons) in an oceanfront suite. I highly recommend this hotel. Why go anywhere else on your wedding night when you're already on one of the most amazing islands on Earth?
I realize you may not be the frugal, minimalist type. There are several other locations, other than the beach or the YWCA, to have a wedding. A few that caught my eye were the oceanfront chapels at Ko'Olina and Turtle Bay, Sunset Ranch on the North Shore, and Haiku Gardens behind Haleiwa Joe's in Kaneohe to name a few.
Be sure to cover all of the bases when planning your wedding, especially if you're flying family to Hawaii to witness your most precious life event.
