A Hawaiian wedding sounds like a dream that few people can afford, but now the price of Hawaii wedding packages has declined to the point that almost anyone can buy one. Indeed, some packages may now cost less than the preparations for a conventional wedding in the town where you live.
It may come as a surprise, but due to the decreasing cost of cruises over the past few years, this is a very affordable choice for couples planning their wedding in Hawaii. There is a low cost for the cruise, with small additional charges for wedding add-ons including the ceremony, reception, cake and possibly even entertainment. The wedding can be held at any port-of-call.
For couples who want something a little more traditional, a beach wedding may be a great choice. The romance of saying "I do" by the warm, sun-drenched shores is truly an achievable dream. Many luxurious hotels offer wedding packages that includes the ceremony and reception at a location by the shore.
More traditional packages are available that take place in a traditional chapel setting. For those who want a chapel ceremony, but also the romance and beauty of a Hawaiian setting, this is the perfect choice. The best part is, of course, that your honeymoon begins right outside the doors of the chapel.
Hawaiian weddings are a perfect opportunity to forego the 'natural' ceremony that we experience on the mainland. These weddings often include cultural luaus, the exchange of leis as well as ukulele music. Of course, one could always customize their wedding to honor your own religious beliefs. After the wedding, guests will be able to attend the luau and enjoy roasted pork, pineapple, poi, and taro. This reception party regularly lasts long into the night, if you wish to stay.
Wherever you decide to have your Hawaiian wedding, your friends and family will enjoy the ceremony and all the other activities that are available on the islands. You can start your honeymoon immediately, with swimming, sailing, suntans, and scuba diving among the many choices you can select.
Hawaii wedding packages may make your dream wedding much more affordable that you could have imagined. Some may cost less than traditional weddings. A cruise is one option, with the wedding on board for a small extra fee, or at a port of call. Hawaii beach weddings are a beautifully romantic setting, and you can find a Kauai wedding package sponsored by a hotel that includes ceremony and reception in one offering. Traditionalists can find packages that include a chapel, but the adventurous might consider a traditional Hawaiian style ceremony with leis, local dances and a luau as the wedding feast. You and everyone else will enjoy a Hawaiian wedding.
