Planning a Fall Wedding in Hawaii

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

 

I'm very excited to be a part of this forum. My fiance and I would like to plan a wedding for this fall in Hawaii with about 30 or so of our closest friends and family members. We are hoping to set a date for late Sept. or early Oct. in either Maui, Kauai, or the Big Island. I've been looking at the Kona Village Resort and am wondering if this is the place for us. I've read reviews on tripadvisor and many people say it is a beautiful location but there are some complaints about it's "rustic antiquity" claiming that it's hales are outdated and it is overpriced. If anyone has any recommendations for wedding locations that are reasonably priced but beautifully located, I would appreciate the input! I'd like to go with a resort that offers a package for the ceremony and also host the reception there as well.

 

Thanks!

Congrats and welcome to the forum! I would totally recommend the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel along the Kohala Coast (North of Kona, on the Big Island). Since in Hawaii it's law that there are no 'private' beaches (makes it hard for a resort to offer beach ceremony locations), this might be your best bet for having a beautiful outdoor wedding overlooking the Pacific. THey have a great selection of ceremony locations and the beach at the resort is constantly voted one of the best in the world. If its within your budget it is a fabulous resort and equally fabulous location!!

 

Check out the Big Island section of the forum bc there are a few other write ups of various locations on the island.

 

Good luck with your planning, I'm mega jealous that you are getting married in Hawaii!! My favorite place on earth (unfortunately too far to ask East Coast visitors to go!)

Thank you ladies! Very excited to join!

 

And thank you mekanabr! I will definitely check out the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel. It's a daunting task trying to find the best bang for your buck when you can't easily visit but I am very excited to be planning our destination wedding. Thank you so much again for your advice!!
