Without a wedding venue…you have no Hawaiian wedding! Ok, you can go down to Honolulu’s downtown city hall and get hitched, but you don’t need us to tell you about that. Like restaurants to choose from, there are hundreds of venues that are available around the island.

Getting married in Hawaii is beautiful. But like many other choices you’ll be making, there are mediocre to amazing places to choose from. We’ll identify a few choices worth considering, but first you have to decide the type of setting you might want. These settings could include at a beautiful hotel, on the beach, at a museum, or a distinctive church?
When choosing a hotel in Oahu, consider a classic such as the Royal Hawaiian or the Moana Surfrider Hotel. Both built in the early 1900’s and constructed beautifully with no details left out! They are as storybook as you can get for Hawaii.
Getting married on the beach sounds romantic and can be a beautiful way to tie the knot, if you’re up for it. Not all beaches are friendly to get married on. It takes some planning, state permits and possible day-event insurance for a ceremony to take place on sandy grounds.
Beautiful beach scenes include Kailua Beach, Waimanalo Bay, and Punaluu. All three of these beaches happen to be on the windward side of the island, where it’s typically a little bit cooler, quieter, and the water is pristine aqua blue.
There is something said for planning a traditional Hawaiian wedding in a church, and Oahu has lots of choices from different religion denominations to unconventional congregations that host at local business, schools, community centers, and even movie theaters!
Oahu church Settings
I recommend taking a look at St. Andrew’s Cathedral, Kawaiaha’o Church, St. Agustine, St Patrick’s and Sacred Heart Church.
Consider getting married along the waterfront at the Waikiki Aquarium. They have a beautiful outdoor lawn area that looks out over the ocean. Waimea Falls Park, also known as Waimea Valley, is another good wedding destination with facilities and beautiful botanical gardens.
