Hello Everyone!! I’m new to this board and have been working on gathering some information for my destination wedding. My fiance and I are planning on getting married in June of 2015 in Oahu, HI and would prefer to have the wedding somewhere on the North Shore. I am interested in finding a wedding planner who would be able to help with some of the planning details. Does anyone have any advice as to who might be a great planner to work with from there?? Any information or guidance would be greatly appreciated!!

@Grossern: Hi there! We are also having our wedding in Hawaii but we are having it in Maui. If you want to get married there I have been working with Marissa from Simple Maui Weddings and she has been awesome.
Good luck with planning! It has been interesting for us working with someone so far away, but I think alot of the stress is aleviated since you have someone dedicated to helping you.

Hi. I recommend Carrie from Cherished in Hawaii Weddings. She is the nicest wedding planner on this island! If you need hair and makeup let me know 🙂

Nymeria13: I am having my wedding in July of 2015 in Hawaii on the North Shore. We are having a really small wedding, about 20 people. We rented a house that said we could do the wedding there (they did ask for an event fee) and many of the guests will be staying with us there for the week.
I haven’t hired anyone yet but I’m also looking into Carrie from Cherished in Hawaii Weddings. I will likely try to use her as a day of coordinator bc I don’t want to spend the money for full out planning. That being said I am SUPER frustrated with the lack of response from wedding vendors there. It takes some people a week or more to get back to me which is really annoying. Its the main reason I’m thinking of using a planner. Hopefully she can reccomend vendors and help me manage if they are being unresponsive. Hope this helps. Good luck with your planning

Hi, I’m getting married in Turtle Bay Resort in the North Shore next month and I highly recommend Ramona Char of Pacific Aisles. They have different pancakes including day of coordination and full service planning. She is great and I absolutely recommend her!

Just as an update I did some digging into other planners and still the only one I have found that is reasonably priced and not too stuffy is Carrie from Cherished in hawaii weddings. Hope this help and hope you are having fun planning your wedding!
