The MOANA SURFRIDER, A WESTIN RESORT & SPA began hosting weddings when it first opened back in 1901. The ever-elegant ‘First Lady of Waikiki’ has been perfecting them ever since; it hosted nearly 2,000 weddings in 2016. Among its secrets is the Moana Surfrider’s highly acclaimed Moana Lani Spa — the only beachfront spa in Waikiki and one of the only facilities to offer private massage and treatment rooms exclusively for couples.
At THE WESTIN MAUI RESORT & SPA, couples can arrange to have their names in lights atop the hotel and there’s even underwater wedding photography available.
The wedding team at THE ROYAL HAWAIIAN, A LUXURY COLLECTION RESORT, offer bespoke wedding experiences that include spectacular beachfront dinners. Are you planning to wed in the islands? Check out SPG’s Secrets For A Successful Destination Wedding, exclusively available at weddings-in-hawaii.com. Here are a few tips from the pros:
Hire a wedding planner who knows the destination and shares your vision. This person can source reliable vendors for your special day and attend to the details and responsibilities once wedding week begins. – Stuart Kotake, The Royal Hawaiian, a Luxury Collection Resort
Use local florals in your bouquets and arrangements. Not only do they add to the overall ambiance, they can be less expensive than florals that aren’t readily available. – Events Team, Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa
Consider group contracting for air tickets, ground transportation, off-site tours and of course hotel room blocks.
Your travel professional or the hotel sales department can assist you. – Laurie Ihara, Sheraton Princess Kaiulani
Are you on a budget? Most hotels can customise a restaurant’s dinner menu. This is ideal for smaller wedding parties and can be less costly than arranging a banquet. – Chelsea Schroeder, Sheraton Kauai Resort
The 12 SPG (Starwood Preferred Guest) resorts in Hawaii represent world renowned brands Sheraton, Westin, St. Regis and The Luxury Collection. They now offer a Honeymoon Gift Registry, where couples can pre-plan activities for their honeymoon or destination wedding.
