Tips for Saving Money with Hawaii Wedding Packages

Tips for Saving Money with Hawaii Wedding Packages

By George Michel

If you are considering traveling to Hawaii to experience a wedding in paradise, you should probably think about selecting an affordable Hawaii wedding package. In Hawaii can it be a surprisingly affordable alternative to planning your wedding using an ala carte menu of services.
Most Hawaii wedding companies have packages. So it is important to compare and contrast what you will receive with a Hawaii wedding planner in order to get the best possible value for your money. Companies usually include the basics: minister, two leis (for a lei exchange during the ceremony) and the photographer.

You want to make certain, especially if you are having a larger wedding with a lot of services that what you are receiving in your wedding package Hawaii includes an on-sight coordinator. A coordinator is important for many reasons. She is the one who will be making certain that all of the wedding vendors, including the minister, photographer, videographer, musicians, cake lady, florist, and other vendors show up at the right location at the right time. She is also the one who can obtain alternate vendors in the event that something happens to interrupt the wedding plans. (like car trouble, double-booking, traffic, or bad weather).

So don’t assume that an on-site wedding coordinator is included within your wedding package unless it specifically states that.

Another way to save money is to have your beach wedding on the island of Maui. maui wedding packages are, on the whole, less expensive than weddings offered on Oahu or the Big Island. In fact, more weddings take place on Maui than on any other island. Maui has been voted as the best island in the world for each of the last 14 years by the readers of Traveler Magazine.
