An Oahu Wedding is the perfect choice for any couple that wants a destination wedding. There is no need for a passport, and it shouldn’t be too difficult to convince guests to spend a few days on our beautiful island. If you’re considering a destination wedding on Oahu then here are a few tips to keep in mind to ensure your special day will go off without a hitch!

Affordable Hotel Accommodations
Weddings are expensive, but your Oahu Hotel doesn’t have to be! Courtyard by Marriott Waikiki Beach offers some of the most affordable rates on the Island – and you won’t sacrifice an amazing location. We are just steps from many top things to do and a short walk to the famous Waikiki Beach.

Use an Oahu Wedding Coordinator
Planning a wedding from far away is always a challenge. This is especially true if you don’t know the area well, and will have to make decisions based on photographs. Instead of trying to do it all yourself, hire an Oahu wedding coordinator. Your coordinator will know all the best places to hold the ceremony and will be able to take care of all the details.

Smaller Wedding? Choose Our Hotel Wedding Package
Courtyard by Marriott Waikiki Beach has beautiful space for Oahu Weddings of up to 40 guests. Our lovely penthouse suite is the perfect spot for cocktails. As for food, everything on our catering menu is made from the freshest local ingredients. Call 808.954.4000 to learn more about holding your wedding at our Oahu Hotel.

Hurry Up and Pick Date!
You know you need to pick a date, but you might not know how important that it is that you choose a date as soon as possible. Many people see the benefits of an Oahu Wedding, so dates for the best venues tend to book up far in advance. To avoid missing out on your first choice, pick a date now and lock down your venue.

Local Touches
You don’t have to have a Hawaii themed wedding just because you choose a destination wedding on Oahu, but it is nice to add a few local touches. Ideas include adding Hawaiian food to your menu, having local musicians play at the reception, or even hiring fire dancers to really impress your guests.

Make It Legal
You’ll need to get your marriage license in Hawaii, but don’t worry – it couldn’t be easier! You and your beloved will just need to go the health department or marriage agent with proper ID and $60. The fee must be paid in cash. Once you have your marriage license, it will be valid for 30 days. That’s it!
