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?

    • Hey fellow wedding planners. When me and my wife planned our wedding I started making playlists both for the reception and for the dance floor.  I wanted it to be more towards indie and alternative music and since I started sharing the playlists on Facebook and other social media I got so much appreciation I wanted to make them available to others planning their wedding. For the reception Will you marry me? Let's play this at our wedding - INDIE / FOLK / ALTERNATIVE For the dance floor I Bet You Look Good On The Dance Floor - Indie Party Anthems I also have a few other playlists that might be of interest for playing at a wedding It's all about JAZZ Fabulous Fingerpicking Folk (Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkle, Bright Eyes, Iron & Wine, Beatles etc) 88 Keys Of Magic - Contemporary Piano - Jazz / Neo Classical and More Fingers, Wood, Nylon and Steel - Contemporary Acoustic Guitar Instrumental Chill Out Gems Hope it can be of help or maybe just inspiration for your own wedding playlist! Let me know what you think!   Flag  Quote  Agree  Like
