Hawaii Wedding Tips Part 1 – Relieving the Stress

Hawaii Wedding Tips

Here’s 2 quick Hawaii Wedding Tips to help you overcome feeling stressed & overwhelmed – breathe, and follow your gut when it comes to choosing your wedding planner.

In this, part 1 of our “Hawaii Wedding Tips” series,

we take a look at how to relieve the primary concern for many brides: stress and overwhelm! When looking at all the different options for a Hawaii beach wedding in general, or a Kauai beach wedding in particular, it is all too easy to feel stressed and overwhelmed. There are so many choices. There are so many companies, so many wedding packages, so many prices … how can you possibly compare them all? This is a big problem for newcomers wanting a romantic beach wedding, which is why we devoted our very first blog article of our Hawaii Wedding Tips series to this important issue.

Take a look at our video below:

Kauai Wedding Packages – Apples and Watermelons!

The problem with the way the wedding packages are constructed by almost all Kauai wedding companies is that they don’t give an itemized list. You don’t know what each item in the package costs. It’s a bit like going to a grocery store which has no prices, and getting told the total at the end when you check out. You don’t know what each thing costs. You can’t help but compare apples and oranges, or even better, apples and watermelons; it makes a clear comparison impossible.

(The great thing about Aloha Ever After is that we are very clear about what everything costs – just check our easy-to-read A La Carte page which lists all the items, line by line, that you can purchase with us, and which are bundled together in our Kauai Wedding packages.)

Relieving the Stress

However, for new brides, the most important thing to remember is to breathe, go slowly and take one step at a time. You do not need to choose everything at once. Decisions like which flowers or how many guests to have can be made way later into the process. First, decide which Hawaiian island you would like to be married on. Then you can go ahead and choose which company.

Our best Hawaii Wedding tips at this stage of the process are to listen to your intuition and to choose a wedding planner you connect with. Make sure you speak on the phone first, so you can establish a connection and decide by their voice whether they are the right wedding coordinator for you.
