1– Will this be only the two of you? Or 10 other guest? Typical elopements is a max of 20 people.
2- Find an officiant! Or if you wanted to have a special friend get ordained make sure it’s done up to a month before your wedding date. More info: Here
3- Don’t forget to file for your marriage license.
4- Find your epic location. Are you guys avid hikers? Sunset lovers? Sunrise enthusiast? Theirs so many beautiful locations in Hawaii. Pick one that really resonates with what you’re wanting your special day to reflect.
5- Find that special someone to capture your day. Try to book your photographer as early as you could. Wedding season is year round in Hawaii, and it would be a bummer if the person you fell in love with is totally booked.
6- Saved the best for last! Book your tickets + hotel. Figure out where you’re staying, and when. If you’re flexible on dates November-March tend to be Hawaii’s “off season”.
