Of course, on any island you could choose to get married on a sandy beach.  However, if you wanted to have a more unique Hawaiian wedding, here are the elements that make each island special for your big day.

Big Island

The Big Island (Hawaii) is such a cornucopia of diverse geography and beautiful natural wonders. Exchange vows near a volcano, under a waterfall, or even on a snow-capped mountain (seriously!) for your destination wedding.

The home of the famously winding Road to Hana, Maui is an island full of striking landscapes.  Find a quiet spot in the bamboo forest on the Pipiwai Trail.  Or get married in a botanical garden.  With so many modern amenities and Hawaiian atmosphere, this island merges convenience with natural splendor.



Of all the islands, this is going to be your best bet for finding your perfect resort at a price point you can afford.  Honolulu is full of lovely hotels with oceanfront patios and private oases. If you still want to get out of town, there are rainforests surrounding you (this island was the main filming location for Lost, so it can definitely accommodate those wanting to escape).



This remote and quiet island is known for its amazing luxury and unparalleled resort setting. A destination wedding here will be intimate, chic, and upscale. And the larger price tag might just be worth the fewer crowds at the beach blocking your view of the stunning sunset.



Lanai's more rustic cousin, Molokai is also less populated and caters to those seeking a quieter wedding day. It is, however, decidedly less luxurious. This is an ideal choice for couples with a small guest list that want a really simple occasion on an island largely undisturbed by tourism.



Outdoorsy couples that want to celebrate their nuptials with a strenuous hike through rainforests and canyons need look no further than the island of Kauai. Find your bliss in a multitude of rugged and adventurous locations!
