Saying I do is just the beginning. If you’re planning a wedding on Oahu the options are endless. Would you like to get married on one of Oahu’s beautiful beaches or in a historic venue like Kawaiahao Church? Do you want a reception by moonlight or in the comforts of a resort banquet hall? Even tying the knot on a surfboard isn’t out of the question on Oahu.
There are even more reasons to choose Oahu for your destination wedding. As part of the U.S., communication is easy, currencies are the same and your guests can focus on your special day and not on adjusting to a foreign country. Plus, there are more flights to Oahu from the Continental U.S. and Asia than to any other Hawaiian island and you don’t need a passport.
Combining your wedding and honeymoon as well as keeping your guest list small for a more personal and intimate ceremony can also save you money. Your guests will love it too, with endless activities to choose from, including golf, visiting Oahu’s historic places, experiencing a luau or simply relaxing in one of the island’s fine resorts. You can even add Hawaiian touches by incorporating flower lei into your ceremony — like the fragrant pikake for the bride and maile for the groom — using Hawaiian slack-key and ukulele entertainers, or using Hawaiian blessings during your ceremony.
The world-class service and amenities of the many hotels and resorts on Oahu are custom-made for weddings. Here romantic moments and memories flourish like the rich green slopes of the Windward Coast. Picturesque wedding venues. Perfect weather. Intimate and unforgettable. Happily ever after begins on Oahu. Learn more about Waikiki weddings and Oahu wedding photographers, planners and venues.
