Hawaii Destination Wedding

As the ceremony progresses, the bride and groom exchange leis as a symbol of their eternal love. Traditionally, this act is followed by the bride and groom’s parents presenting leis to the happy couple and the bride and groom responding in kind by presenting leis to their soon-to-be in-laws. As the Hawaiian wedding song (Ke Kali Nei Au – “Waiting for Thee”) is strummed out on the ukulele (and interpreted by hula dancers!), the kahu leads the couple in their wedding vows.

Before the exchanging of rings, the kahu dips a koa wooden bowl into the sea (koa wood, native to Hawaii, represents strength), and a ti leaf, which represents prosperity and health, is dipped into the water and sprinkled over the rings three times as the kahu recites a traditional chant. Once rings have been exchanged and vows said, a lava rock, symbolic of the moment you made a commitment to one another, is wrapped in a ti leaf and left at the ceremony site as an offering to commemorate your union.

Destination Wedding Checklist 2016

Destination Wedding Checklist 2016

Well brides, that’s the sound my brain makes when I think of holding a destination wedding. Informally elegant, weddings held in far-off countries have a delicious sense of excitement and mystery. Not an easy option for last-minute brides, this is something you’ll need at least a year to pull together.

Destination Wedding Checklist-02

Twelve – Eighteen Months Before

  • Consider your wedding wants and needs while setting your budget. Are you looking to hold an intimate beach wedding with family and your closest friends or an over the top event at a 5-star resort with 400+ guests?
  • Now that you have your budget, set a date and pick an island! Once you have a location in sight, start looking at and calling through wedding sites and reception locations – keeping in mind the number of guests and level of formality – and find a hotel or resort nearby that offers everything you and your guests need. For local ideas, look into subscribing to a RSS feed or magazine that could help narrow decisions.
  • Using a wedding planner or travel agent? (Trust me, you’ll end up wishing you did…) This is the time to get in contact! Call through several to make sure your budget and styles mesh, this person is about to become your best friend and mentor. If you choose to hold your event at a high-scale resort, they often have wedding coordinators on staff.
  • Begin looking into marriage license requirements; this isn’t an area where you want any last-minute surprises! Contact the local city hall and get permission to be married in the location of your choosing. Some countries require blood tests, immunization certificates, or a doctor’s certificate in order for you to legally marry; find out as much as possible in advance so you have time to prepare. There may also be unexpected requirements, such as a specific waiting period, an established residency, or a certain number of witnesses. For more information concerning holding your wedding in another country, visit the US State Department at www.state.gov
  • Holding a Catholic ceremony? Talk with your local parish priest to get the paperwork started now…this can be quite the lengthy process.
  • Got your guest list? It’s time to send out your STD’s!
  • Start looking for your wedding dress and wedding party attire; consider dress length if holding an outdoor ceremony.
  • Reserve tents, tables, and chairs for an outdoor ceremony, but take note that you will not be able to secure an awning for a beach wedding without some type of flooring.
  • Honeymooning on another island? Lucky girl! Be sure to make flight, boat, or car rental reservations now along with your hotel or resort stay.

Destination Wedding Checklist-03

Eight – Twelve Months Before

  • Finalize all flight information and tickets; if working with a travel agent, ask that they  make arrangements for all guests and keep you informed along the way.
  • Begin the search for A+ vendors. For a traditional wedding, you will need a florist, musicians, photographer, videographer, baker, caterer, and officiant. Look for a traveling hairstylist and makeup artist who can come to you, and be sure to let your baker know if yours will be an outdoor wedding or not, as there are various types of frosting that don’t stand up to heat and humidity well. Arrange for signed contracts to be sent to you from all vendors.
  • Finalize your ceremony and reception details, and -if you haven’t already- wrap up the search for your gown, bridesmaid dresses, and groomsmen attire!
  • Place your order for wedding invitations.
  • Go wedding ring shopping! You can purchase rings locally, or for a special touch, have rings made in your destination country.
  • Create a wedding website to share updates and travel information and register traditionally or for a honeymoon gift registry.

Destination Wedding Checklist-04

Four – Eight Months Before

  • Got your wedding invitations in? Mail those puppies out with a RSVP!
  • Writing your own vows? Start now so you have plenty of time to find the perfect words to express your heart. Check with your officiant before you begin, though; while most allow personal vows, there are some who do not.
  • Oh, wedding shoes…after the dress, is there anything more fun to shop for? Take time with your bridesmaids to shop for shoes and other accessories.
  • Triple-check that your wedding party and other important guests have all travel arrangements completed.
  • Start jotting down ideas for activities pre/post wedding for your guests to enjoy. Consider cost and activity levels, or for added input, post as a question on your wedding website and let your guests chime in!

Destination Wedding Checklist-01

One – Four Month Before

  • Order bridesmaid gifts, gifts for your groom, and wedding favors. Giving out welcome bags to your guests? Start planning now! Water, sunscreen, snacks, detailed itineraries, and paper fans with your wedding program printed on the back, all make the list of adorable inserts for bags! Remember – everything can be personalized if you plan and order in advance!
  • Decided on activities? Make any reservations necessary.
  • If needed, make reservations for travel accommodations to and from the airport and wedding.

Destination Wedding Checklist-05

Two Weeks – One Month Before

  • Confirm all details with vendors and place contracts in a 3-ring binder to bring with you.
  • Assemble wedding favors and welcome bags; purchase items there as needed.
  • Call ahead to arrange with the airline for your dress and tux to travel with you. A little bit of sweet talking and you may be able to hang them in a locker in the front cabin!
  • Stock up your Kindle or buy any travel books you’d like to go over while in the air.
  • Buy an extra memory card or two for your camera; extra batteries are a given, yes?

Destination Wedding Checklist-06

You’ve Arrived!

  • Take a deep breath, enjoy the sites, and giggle over the fact that you’re about to walk down the aisle!
  • Apply for your marriage license and meet with your wedding planner, officiant, and any other vendor who want or need your input before the big day.
  • Scope  out your wedding location – this is the time to make sure everything is to your liking. Good to go? Give the address and directions to your wedding party and guests so everyone knows how to get there!
  • Distribute welcome bags to guest rooms. Are you excited yet?

Destination Wedding Checklist-07

Your Wedding Day

  • Relax and enjoy your day with those you love. Take a moment to grin ear-to-ear over your newly attained title!

Destination Wedding Checklist-08

You’re Home

  • Hold a  reception to celebrate with friends and family who weren’t able to make it to your ceremony.

Destination Wedding Checklist-09

Don’t leave home without…

  • Something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue!
  • Rings, if not made and purchased in your destination country
  • Seating cards and table numbers for the reception
  • Jewelry for you and your bridesmaids
  • A copy of your wedding vows, if personal
  • Any make-up, nail polish, or shampoo, that you can’t imagine living without
  • Daily medication or vitamins
  • 3-ring binder of contracts and phone numbers of your vendors
  • List of hotel addresses and phone numbers that your guests are staying at – if not all at the same place
  • Presents for your wedding party
