An outdoor wedding in a tropical venue is a dream come true if you plan accordingly. Here are some tips to help you plan your perfect Hawaiian outdoor wedding:

Focus on the Comfort of Your Guests

You want your wedding to be memorable for good reasons, so take the time to ensure your guests are comfortable. If you know it’s going to be very hot; you can print your wedding programs on fans or have ice-cold water available to guests as they are seated. A tent can also be utilized to cut down on the heat. We recommend our golf umbrella and white resin chairs.

Plan for Wind

It can get windy in Hawaii, so be sure to plan for it. Be sure to tell your hairstylist about windy conditions so they can plan your style accordingly. Have the men wear styling products like pomade to keep hair in place, and be sure to let guests know so that they can plan for it. Avoid very light fabrics for your dress and your bridesmaids’ dresses to avoid a wardrobe malfunction.

Look into Renting Sound Equipment

The sound of waves or the wind can make it hard for guests to hear your vows. Look into renting a sound system with microphones. Your wedding DJ may be able to set this up for you as well.

Select Decorations that Compliment the Natural Beauty of Hawaii

Hawaii is renowned for its natural beauty, which means you don’t have to do much to make your wedding spectacular. Choose décor that compliments the landscape instead of overshadowing it. Floral arches and centerpieces can add elegance to your wedding. For a gorgeous compliment to the local flora and fauna, we recommend our round arch, rustic arch, or crystal clear Lucite arch.
