    Hawaii Weddings and Events is a Better Business Bureau (BBB) accredited national award winning full service event planning firm featuring Hawaii’s only Certified Professional Catering Executive (CPCE) and Certified Meeting Planner (CMP) dedicated to service excellence. Their website is: Hawaii Weddings and Events. E-mail: info@hawaiiweddingsandevents.com


    Here are some of the coordination services that they offer:



    VIRTUAL (E-MAIL) CONSULTING SERVICES (2 hour minimum)
    E-mail only consulting services is perfect for wedding couples that may just need to kick-start their wedding planning by booking Hawaii’s top wedding professionals (based on your preferences and budget) which may include, but are not limited to minister, entertainment, photographer, videographer, florist, caterer, hair and make-up, bakery, etc.

    ON-SITE COORDINATION/CONSULTING (3 hour minimum)
    On-site coordination or consulting meetings is great for intimate weddings of 20 guests or less and destination couples that may just need a hand in “designing” their wedding, setting up appointments with Hawaii’s top vendors during their pre-planning visit, booking all or some of their vendor services as needed, conducting their wedding rehearsal and/or being an on-site coordinator for just a few hours on their wedding day. This service is also perfect for those that may just need someone to set-up their reception site while they are away at their wedding ceremony and pictures.

    REALITY CHECK (Consultation and Budget Preparation)
    With the excitement of the engagement often comes anxiety on how to begin the wedding planning process and how fast can I get announcements out?. One of the first critical steps, one which is often overlooked, is to determine your budget which in turn often determines the appropriate venue and the vendors that will help achieve your dream wedding within your means.

    During our two hour consultation meeting, Hawaii Wedding and Events will sit down with you and carefully listen to your ideas on what you envision for your most special day. Based on our 20+ years of experience, we will provide you with honest feedback and help you prepare a realistic budget with cost saving ideas (relative to the wedding only, it does not include travel and/or accommodations) which will sent to you via an excel spreadsheet that you maintain and update throughout your wedding planning.

    Based on the consultation, we will also provide eight reputable vendor resources that would be suitable (based on your needs, style and budget) as well as set you up with a $25 “gift account” in our card system http://www.sendoutcards.com/27863 so that you can send out engagement announcements, save-the-date postcards or other personal cards to your family or friends. The investment you put into this session more than pays for itself in the long run.
