I’m gonna follow this to see what people say! I really want a Hawaii DW but it seems kinda daunting to plan. What island are you getting married on?

@dreams030684:  the venue I love is on Oahu! I’m also thinking about possibly Maui. But first I need to convince my boyfriend that we don’t have to invite everyone we know :/

This may be strange, but when I went to Hawaii this past February, the thing I bought that I love the most was a plumeria tree cutting. I think it was like $7 at the ABC Store and right now it’s growing in our front yard. I would love to get something like that in a welcome bag, but I’m not sure if I’m in the minority haha.

I’m putting small water squirt guns in my welcome bags. Also some little cocktail umbrellas for their drinks as well as 1 oz bottles of hand sanitizer and sunscreen. U ccould always do the standard cheap sunglasses, or flip flops, or hand fan.

@dreams030684:  so far it sounds good.  what about flip flops?  also, is there a decent map of the area that you can get from the internet; perhaps print it out on nice thick cardstock with some points of interest on it.

don’t forget to get the chapstick with the spf in it.  without will make your lips burn.

@dreams030684:  Why not chocolate covered macadamia nuts?  That is very Hawaiian.

@BruinBeeMPH:  If a Hawaiian wedding is your dream, go for it!  It has been fun to plan.

@BeeG35:  I like the sunscreen idea!

@dreams030684:  For our DW welcome bag we had flip flop bottle openers, they were cute and I don’t think they cost a lot (my MIL ordered them). We also had a deck of cards in each bag.

@FLBlonde93:  it’s my dream but my BF wants a huge party with his whole HUGE family. I’m working on convincing him that a DW is the way to go!

@dreams030684:  mine had a single bloom that ended up dying before it opened 🙁 it was SO hot in LA last week. I was so sad!
