Vacation Rental property as WEDDING SITE ?!?!

Recommended Posts

Maybe this is a well-known idea, but I'm new to this so I don't know. We are planning to have a small DW on Oahu, Hawaii with our immediate families. Mine will be coming from Minnesota, so we've determined that it will be MUCH cheaper to seek out a vacation rental property than board all 8 of us in a hotel for a week or so.

With that being said, we're trying to be budget-minded. So I thought I had a revelation of an idea last night... Considering we would rent a beachfront/ oceanfront property with a view... Can we just have the wedding ceremony (maybe the reception) on the rental property?? Obviously if we choose to do it on the actual beach, we have to have a permit. But there are several beautiful places with lush lawns and the beach/ocean as a backdrop.  Our ceremony will consist of approx 21 people including ourselves, so quite small.

Is there any reason I would NOT be able to have my ceremony on the property we're renting? Any legal fine print in Hawaii? Other people have their ceremonies at home, and really this is our "home" for a week. I assume an officiant would come to whatever wedding site we choose.

As for the reception portion of it, we would probably just plug in my iPod dock and ipod, and have a nice dinner catered to the yard or lanai of the house.

For the ceremony we could rent chairs... I'll probably do my own simple silk flowers/bouquets. Get hair/makeup done somewhere local in the morning.

Anyways... Input?? Has anyone done this? Any vacation rental owners out there have something to say? Anybody? Bueller?

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
