Planning Oahu for 2/26/10!

Recommended Posts

Hello all!


We are headed to Oahu at the end of February to say "I Do" then hop on the NCL cruise around the islands for the honeymoon. We have had the flight booked and the cruise booked for months, and now I feel the stress of actually deciding where to have the ceremony, where to stay and who we will get to marry us... so many wedding sites on the web...help!


I have been reading the posts and getting some good info. But would love some suggestions. It is only the 2 of us, so no need for reception and lots of fan fare... but we do want nice photos on a beach with not a ton of people around. Has anyone worked with aloha forever weddings?


I thought we might find a hotel that offered a simple wedding on the beach but it sounds like it may need to be done separately. I am open to anything, waikiki area, or north shore, just somewhere on oahu.


I imagine a day where he can go play golf while i get my hair and make up done, then we can go to the beach and have the ceremony and photos.


After reading the posts, I realize that some of the other "Hawaii brides" are way ahead of the planning with dates much later than mine.... I really need to hop to it and figure this out!





Indianapolis, IN

Wedding Date 2/26/2010

Congrats Dana!! Sounds amazing! I worked on cruise ships as a photographer for a few years and have always wanted to go to Hawaii! I'm recently engaged as well and one of the places we were thinking of was Hawaii! So exciting!


All the best! :)

Hi Dana, best of luck with all of the planning! I'm sure that you'll find the perfect place for the two of you. And don't worry about where other people are at with their planning, it will all fall into place!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
