    Hey everyone!

    Joy from Chicago here, trying to plan a Catholic DW in Kauai, while the future hubby is still in Philly. Since we're getting married Jan 23, 2010, and both live in really cold winter cities, a beach DW was a must.

    I look forward to reading what you're all planning and hope to get some great tips/suggestions!

        I'm catholic too & was planning on having a catholic wedding.. while doing research i realized that they do not approve of non-church weddings... (only under special circumstances, such as at a hospital if someone is sick/dying)

        Beach Wedding? - Catholic Answers Forums

        it may help you to read their discussion.... although it does get REALLY technical to the point where i just decided to have the outdoor DW & a church wedding at home

          Welcome Joy!!!
          Being from Wisconsin, I COMPLETELY understand your need for a beach wedding during January (and that's my birthday too... so I KNOW how cold it is, yearly!). I have heard things such as vivrant posted up above where they won't allow a Catholic service outside of a church, but hopefully you can find exactly what you are looking for.
          Best wishes!

                    Welcome and Congratulations!!
                    It's true, I was trying to have an outdoor beach Catholic wedding, but they won't allow that, so I ended up having to switch my resort to one that has a Chapel inside. Maybe that can be an option for you.
                    Funny, we're thinking of getting married that same day too but in Cancun.
                    Happy planning!!
