4 Tips to Plan a Destination Wedding in Hawaii, Honolulu, Hawaii

In addition to Hawaii’s natural beauty, many couples choose a destination wedding there to spend more quality time with loved ones, not to mention get a head start on the honeymoon. However, it requires extensive planning to set up the wedding venue from home. Here are some essential tips to make the process smooth sailing until the big day.

How to Coordinate Your Destination Wedding in Hawaii

1. Give Guests Plenty of Notice

Since destination weddings require more travel and time away from work for guests, give them at least a few months of advance notice. This will give them plenty of time to book flights, transportation, and hotel rooms.

2. Select an Accommodating Wedding Venue

Hawaii has an abundance of gorgeous wedding venues, many of which are experienced with destination planning. Those that include catering packages and plenty of parking will make your big day even more convenient. Also, make sure the venue can comfortably fit all who RSVP.

3. Use Nature as Decor

4. Consider the Cost

If you don’t plan to cover the cost of lodging, reserve hotel blocks within a comfortable price range for your guests. Ask about discounts for booking in bulk. Try to limit the distance between the hotel and your wedding venue as well so your guests won’t have to pay too much for transportation.
