    Hello, my name is Crystal and I am just getting started on planning my Oahu wedding. I was just wondering if any one on here could give me some starting out tips. I am wanting to have a weddingmoon on the beach. I looked into sweethawaiiwedding.com but they emailed me back and told me to google affordable weddings. The pretty much blew me off. I was really thinking about going with them but now I have to start my searching all over again. Any suggestions? Are there any sites that offer an all inclusive weddingmoon with airfare and hotel? I just want to make this as easy as possible yet I want my wedding to be pretty too. please let me know who is the best to book my ceremony with. Thank you.

      Hi Crystal, welcome to BDW!

      As far as weddings, you're going to have a lot of options on Oahu. It's not always necessary to hire an outside wedding coordinator as many of the larger resorts do have staff onsite that can do everything for you. But if you are looking for a ceremony off property somewhere, then a coordinator will definately help (make sure to find someone who has the proper permits for beach weddings as not many do).

      I'm not aware of anyone who will package air, hotel and wedding all into one (we usually do the air/hotel as a package and then work with the WC to do the ceremony stuff). But a good TA could help you keep it simple for you and your guests. If you try to piece it all together seperately on your own it could make you crazy Especially if you've never been there before.

        Thanks very much! I will look into doing the hotel and air together and then adding the ceremony to the hotel I choose. I appreciate the advise.

            My fiance and I are planning on getting married in Oahu. Try Expedia for hotel and airfare packages, I found some pretty good deals on there. Best of luck planning!

              Welcome! My advice is definitely do research, you can almost always find a better price!!! Also, talk to a travel agent. Even if you end up booking online, they will be able to get you started. Plus if you do use one, they organize everything for you! It was the best thing I did! Good luck!!!
