Hawaii offers some of the most beautiful and romantic venues for hosting your wedding. Imagine white sand beaches with a tropical breeze cooling off a perfect sunset. Or a wedding ceremony set against the backdrop of lush tropical gardens and gently cascading waterfalls. Sounds romantic, doesn’t it? Waikiki is a perfect venue for your wedding plans whether they involve a romantic quiet ceremony or a multi-day celebration for many friends and family!

There truly is not a "typical" Waikiki wedding, as the options on the island are so diverse. Finding a Waikiki wedding coordinator that you trust and feel comfortable with is one of the keys to a successful wedding in Waikiki. The question to ask yourself when considering a wedding is "what is my dream wedding?” If you can articulate this vision to your Waikiki wedding planner, your chances of it becoming a reality become much better.

The questions you should consider for the wedding are:
· How many guests do you want?
· What kind of venue (waterfall, volcano, white sand beach)?
· Who will officiate?
· What style (formal, semi-formal, Hawaiian casual, totally casual)?
· Do you want to have a reception? Where? What sort of reception?

Once you have decided on these core pieces, shop around for Hawaiian wedding packages. There are many different wedding packages offered by hotels, resorts, and even independent wedding planners. All are customizable and many wedding packages include pieces of authentic Hawaiian culture (e.g. exchanging leis). Beyond the price, look for details like:
· What's included in the package? What costs extra?
· Which parts are customizable?
· Are there associated discounts (like on hotel rooms)?

A normal Waikiki wedding package includes the following:
1.  Waikiki Weddings take place on the beach, public park or mountain location in the Waikiki area, or they can perform your wedding at your hotel or condominium.
2.  Your wedding may take place at sunset or during the day.
3.  The Ministers are non denominational and marry all faiths. You can also add your own wedding vows to the service.
4.  The flowers included in this package usually are: Orchid, plumeria or tuberose. You may also order a variety of bridal bouquets, nosegays, corsages, hair flowers, Haku head leis or boutonnieres at an additional cost
5.  Wedding photography normally includes ceremony, formal and candid shots after the ceremony.
6.  The bride and groom's non-alcoholic champagne toast takes place following the ceremony. You may want to order additional beverages and glasses for guests.
7.  Marriage License Arrangements, On Site Coordination, Decorative Wedding Certificate and Witnesses are also provided.

There are lots of Hawaiian wedding options and ideas if you poke around, so effort is rewarded here. Wherever you have your wedding or marriage commitment ceremony in Waikiki, rest assured, it will truly be the most romantic and most remembered than anywhere else in the world.
