Getting Hitched in Hawaii – Resources for Planning a Wedding in Hawaii
Destination weddings are becoming more and more popular, because they skip so much of the fuss in planning the big day and gets you closer to the “I do’s” and onto the honeymoon. With the average cost of a traditional wedding being $26,000, destination weddings can save lots of money. A destination wedding helps the bride and groom focus more on the importance of the day and enjoy it rather than worrying about the logistics and guests.
There are few places on earth that could equal Hawaii for a romantic destination wedding. From beaches to tropical gardens, Hawaii has it all. If you are considering a wedding in Hawaii, you can request free information and find out about special offers from here. Budget Travel has a very nice destination wedding workbook that you can download for free.

Just think, if you get married in Hawaii, you’ll have an excuse to return there every year to celebrate your anniversary. Not a bad idea at all. 🙂

I have helped dozens of brides with their Hawaiian wedding favors for over 10 years. In the past couple of years it seems that more brides are getting married at the big resorts in Kona or on Maui. Many of the resorts have a special area for beach or garden weddings, and some may even have a wedding chapel. They also have a person or department to handle all the wedding details.
Last week I sent our wedding favors to the Fairmont Orchid on the Kohala Coast (the opposite side of the Big Island from where I live), in care of the “Manager of Weddings and Special Events.” Many of the resorts are huge so I always call the person to let them know when I am shipping the favors and call again to make sure they received them.
The brides I assist are so happy to have original wedding favors made in Hawaii (not mass produced from China) and waiting for them at the resort, and not having to worry about packing them or lugging them to the airport.
