Hawaii Destination Wedding Packages – Maui, Oahu, Kauai, and Big Island

March 21, 2023


Last Updated on December 20, 2023 by Karma Hill

Hawaii destination wedding packages are more popular than ever because they offer unparalleled beauty wrapped into one easy-to-manage… well, package. Piecing together all the elements of a wedding is a monumental task on its own, but arranging them thousands of miles overseas (in a vastly different time zone) is nearly impossible to manage. Whether it’s on Maui, Oahu, Kauai, or the Big Island, we’ll help you find a Hawaii destination wedding package that’s everything you’ve dreamed of and then some.

What Are Hawaii Destination Wedding Packages?

Hawaii destination wedding packages contain everything you’ll need for a romantic Big Day in the Aloha state. From a Hawaii wedding coordinator to locations and ministers, all of our packages include hand-picked wedding essentials that are truly the best the islands have to offer. This means you can sit back and trust that one of the most important days in your life has been beautifully wrapped up and will be handed to you, like a lovely gift waiting to be opened. Want to know what’s inside that present? 

All of our Hawaii destination wedding packages include:

  • An officiant
  • An on-site coordinator
  • Professional photography and hi-res photos
  • A bridal bouquet from our floral selections
  • Leis for ceremony exchange
  • Beach wedding permit and liability insurance OR venue selection 
  • Our list of recommended vendors
  • Complimentary consultation with a travel specialist
  • Complimentary concierge service
  • And more!

You can always personalize your package with add-ons and customizations to your heart’s content. 

Think of it as comparing a travel cruise to renting a boat, hiring entertainment, and plotting out your itinerary. With a cruise, you’ll arrive and relax in the sunshine, knowing that everything has been taken care of. However, with the non-packaged option, showing up is simply the first step of a marathon of legwork. There’s a reason why no one takes the second route.

Do Hawaii Destination Wedding Packages Include Airfare and Hotels?

Hawaii destination wedding packages do not include airfare and hotel accommodations. 

There are numerous insurance liabilities involved with arranging travel, and big hitters like Expedia and Travelocity have the financial capital to ensure your safety and the well-being of your belongings. These huge companies have streamlined flights, hotels, and car rentals. 

On the other hand, small wedding planning businesses have perfectly curated all the elements that go into a Hawaii wedding without losing that personal touch and building one-to-one relationships. Leave the travel to the big guys and let us take care of your Big Day.

How Much Do Hawaii Destination Wedding Packages Cost?

Tracking down accurate prices are complicated, but fortunately, we’ve already run the numbers for you! Check out our comprehensive article on Hawaii destination wedding costs for a complete breakdown. 

To put it briefly, let’s use our Oahu weddings as a base. These gorgeous Hawaii destination wedding packages start with a simple Oahu beach elopement at $1,850 and go up to the breathtaking Kualoa Ranch Paliku Gardens Oahu venue ceremony for $9,500.. With flights and lodging tallying in at roughly $6,000, this puts the entire trip (from plane flight to “I do”) between $7,850 and $15,500, depending on your package, add-ons, island, and venue choices. If you are planning on having a reception with friends and family you can quickly get to over $30,000 pretty quickly.

This means simplicity at its finest. With a wedding package, there’s no need to contact multiple vendors or orchestrate the details while you’re on vacation. Just a single payment can cover everything, no worrying about little charges here and there — Your Hawaii destination wedding package will cover it all.

Types of Ceremonies in Hawaii Destination Wedding Packages 

There are two types of ceremony packages for Hawaii destination weddings: beach or venue. Come with us and we’ll explore the differences, pros, and cons!

Hawaii Beach Weddings – Who Are They Best For?

  • Ideal for fewer than 30 guests
  • Includes beach permit and insurance
  • Less expensive than a venue
  • No indoor option
  • Gorgeous backdrops

With beach weddings, simplicity reigns supreme. These packages are ideal for weddings with less than 30 people or eloping couples with few guests. Nothing can outdo the glistening ocean and the soft sensation of digging your toes in the sand. The Hawaii shoreside practically takes care of the decorating–which is convenient and fortunate since many decorative items are restricted on Hawaii beaches.

Our packages abide by all state laws and regulations, and a beach wedding permit and liability insurance are included in every package. As a private citizen, securing these legal requirements is immensely difficult, so ensuring your Hawaii destination beach wedding package includes up-to-date paperwork is crucial. 

Because of the money saved on booking a venue, Oahu beach wedding packages and Maui beach wedding packages tend to be less expensive. However, you’re also taking a small gamble on the weather. There are no indoor options available for beach weddings, so if the clouds aren’t behaving as planned, it could mean bringing out the umbrellas. Luckily, rainy days on the beach are rare, and few things compare to saying “I do” as the ocean keeps tempo, or listening to the deeply moving sound of your Hawaiian wedding officiant blowing the traditional conch shell to celebrate your union.

Plus all of the sunshine, smiles, and radiant ocean will be captured by the artistic lens of the Karma Hill Photography Team, voted the top 5 wedding photographers for the state of Hawaii for the past 4 years by Hawaii Magazine.
