Hawaii is another popular wedding destination. The tropical climate, beaches, water and surf attracts a lot of wedding couples not only to come there for their honeymoon but to actually get married there. And that is a very compelling argument for getting married in Hawaii, you do not have to go far to be right in the perfect place for your honeymoon.
Any guest attending a wedding in Hawaii will greatly appreciate the location. There is a hidden 'gift' to your guests in this destination, they can easily make it an 'excuse' for an extra vacation that year. With Hawaii being quite a flight even from the West coast of North America, it is not a destination many people want to make for just a couple of days. So with this in mind, make sure that you send your wedding invitations out early enough so that people can take time off, book their flights and make all the arrangements they need to make in order to attend your Hawaii destination wedding.
Maui stands out as a common destination for weddings in Hawaii. Hawaii offers amazing beaches that you can have your ceremony in your bikini if you so desire, and also beautiful resorts and hotels where you can get married in the elements of nature. So whatever it is that attracts you to Hawaii, maybe consider making that part of your wedding theme.
Hawaii is quite a trip away so be prepared that not all people that you invite may be able to make it. On the other hand, if you are looking for a very small and stress free wedding this is the place to be. You can choose to do exactly how little you want to do and how much you want to do after your wedding. Simply relaxing on the beach in the sun or exploring the island, you will have options that suit your taste. When booking a wedding destination far away from where you normally live you need to rethink the planning. You can have someone at the destination take care of most of the details for you, and in some places they can take care of pretty much everything and anything for you. But if you do want involvement in certain details make sure to voice that and to plan for it. Most likely you will need to arrive at the destination at least a few days before your wedding (talk to the people at the location to find out how much lead time is needed for flowers if that is what you want to pick out yourself, as an example).
Now Hawaii does have a rainier season so be sure to keep that in mind when you decide what time of the year you want to get married. If you are getting married on a beach, considering the time of the day so you know where the tied is going to be at. Also the sun will play a role. If you are getting married mid day you may want to make sure that there is water close by for all your guests before and after the service to avoid the heat or worse off dehydration.
Whether you are going to Maui or any other Hawaiian Islands destination for your wedding make sure to do your homework and find out what the destination has to offer so that you get a sense for whether or not that is the right place for your wedding.
