WIt’s your big day! The first day of a lifetime of happiness with the person you love. What better way to celebrate than with a Big Island wedding?

Hawaii is the perfect place to exchange your vows, and not just because of its beauty. Hawaii offers great weather – year-round – world-class beaches, and beautiful mountains. Plus, a diverse landscape, particularly on the Big Island, also adds to Hawaii’s appeal as a top destination wedding location. Here, you’ll find a number of dream wedding sites as well as the perfect place to honeymoon. Here are some reasons why Hawaii is the best for weddings.

Island Weather is Always Perfect

In Hawaii, you don’t have to wait until late spring or early summer to celebrate your union. Typically, the weather here stays the same – between 70 and 80 degrees – and sunny. Not too shabby. In the summer months, it’s a little warmer and dryer. The winter is referred to as the “wet” season but that simply means you may see a shower or two in the afternoons (complete with rainbows). Who doesn’t want a bright beautiful rainbow on their wedding day?!

We’re More Than Just a Beach

Just because you choose Hawaii for your destination wedding doesn’t mean you have to get married on the beach. While the Big Island does feature miles of pristine coastline, that’s not all there is to choose from. Perhaps you’ll pick a ceremony location near a rushing waterfall or lush garden. What about the reception? Maybe you prefer to be outside under the stars? All we’re saying is, here, you’ve got options. With attractions like Black Sands Beach, Akaka Falls, Kapoho Warm Pods, and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, the sky is the limit when it comes to planning your special day.

Licensing Is A Piece of (Wedding) Cake

There are a number of logistical nightmares a couple may face when it comes to planning their wedding, but in Hawaii, getting a marriage license isn’t one of them. There are no hoops to jump through. It costs just $65 and you can do it online. Start your application here.

Honeymoons are a Snap
