1. Get Married in Maui. Check!

Additionally, these beautiful invitations are ideal for including in your wedding photos on your special day. Bonus if they have a tropical theme!

3. Incorporate Lots of Tropical Florals

Definitely use tropical florals in your bouquet, lei, flower crown, or boutonnieres. With florals that are native to Hawaii, this added touch will have you and your guests indulging in the vibrant colors and scents Hawaii has to offer. You won’t regret having tropical flowers for days after your Hawaiian wedding ceremony!

And if you’re looking to add something extra special to your wedding bouquet, try incorporating orchids into your arrangements. Orchids are a popular choice in Hawaii since they come in a variety of colors and sizes, making it easy to create beautiful and unique floral designs. Whether you would like an all-white bouquet or one with several different types of foliage. Orchids are the perfect addition.

4. Add Aloha Print to Your Wedding Attire!

There’s a fine line between the perfect amount and overkill when it comes to wearing aloha print clothing on your wedding day. Be subtle with it. You don’t want your wedding attire be too distracting! 😉

A few key things to remember when wearing aloha print attire is to choose pieces that are comfortable, timeless, and made of quality materials. That way, you won’t have to worry about anything going wrong or feeling uncomfortable on your big day! Plus, your photos will look amazing in a classic aloha print or updated floral fusion print look.

5. Tropical Ceremony Decor

Okay, so you want a little more personal style added to your Hawaii wedding day? Simply decorate your ceremony with Hawaii plants, pineapples, shells, and all things tropical.

We’ve seen venues with arches of beautiful Hawaiian floral arrangements! With our couple’s concept in mind, we organized spectacular floral circles and exquisitely constructed pathways for beach weddings where arches are not permitted. These stunning images below speak for themselves as to what we can create…

6. Have Your Officiant Dress for the Occasion

Every Maui minister we work with is delighted to perform the ceremony of your dreams and is able to include Hawaiian elements! Including some Hawaii wedding customs into your ceremony will give it more culture and meaning. Your hand-selected officiant will perform traditional Hawaiian chants, blow the conch shell, and dress in traditional Hawaiian attire for an authentic island celebration!

7. A Lei For Each of Your Guests

We can easily arrange tropical flower or shell leis for each of your guests as another way to say thank you for coming and enjoying your wedding in Hawaii! They will feel the aloha spirit too!

8. Invite Vendors Who Specialize in Cultural Services

Serenade your guests through song or melody with our favorite ukulele musicians! Or go a step further and have yourself a personal Maui luau with a hula dancer as the musician plays. Enjoy the music and learn a little hula yourself while you’re at it!

Also available is The Catered Coconut for a sweet refresher after your ceremony! With fresh coconut juice made right before your eyes!

Leave your guests impressed with an experience they’ll never forget with these add-ons.
