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?

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?

    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
