      "Congrats"!! I got engaged in Hawaii in December 2009. Would love to get married there but it's too far for my guest. We're all from NY. My favorite place in Hawaii was Maui. I'd love to honeymoon in Thailand. It looks amazing and the beaches are gorgeous!! Any information of where to go in Thailand for honeymoon? Welcome to the forum and Happy Planning!! :)

          Welcome! I'm in a similar situation as I'm Canadian and my partner is Aussie, so Hawaii seemed like the perfect meeting point for our guests. The first thing I would suggest is to decide which island would suits what you guys want to do while you're there (I think we'll be in Maui since it has great beaches, snorkelling, surfing and seemingly nicer out of the way spots then Oahu), and if you're cheesy, you get to say you've been "maui'ed"....... look forward to seeing you around the site!

                Our mind is set on a wedding outdoors over looking the ocean, ideally have some sort of Gazebo or wedding arch followed by a BBQ reception. Is anyone looking to do something similar in Hawaii?

                We'll be doing a site visit hopefully in July...

                Be sure to check out Turtle Bay Resort on North Shore Oahu. It's where Forgetting Sarah Marshall was filmed if you saw that. I stayed there a few years ago and fell in love with the resort. Now I'm getting married there in August. We love that it feels like old Hawaii. We're having a beach wedding, and the reception dinner in an all-glass pavilion on the water and dancing on the lawn outside. We're having a luau style BBQ complete with hula and fire dancers. I can get you the contact info for the production company doing the entertainment- they can get you an inclusive package with a Hawaiian guitar/singer for the ceremony/cocktail, a 3-5 person hula show, and then DJ for the reception at an INCREDIBLE rate (esp. considering the dancers are former Polynesian Center dancers). Turtle Bay turned out to be more affordable than most places we looked at for what we wanted to do, and since it's on the North Shore, the property is secluded and serene. It's a great alternative to the craziness of Waikiki beaches. You can get basically everything you need through the resort. We're only bringing in a photographer and the entertainment. There's even a florist located in a shop by the pool! Can't tell you how much I love this place!
                Hope this helps!
