I’m still undecided on an island, and if we go for Oahu, we’re doing anywhere but Waikiki. 🙂 Regardless, I did do a very superficial search of options just to get some price points for comparison. I’ve seen so many beautiful pictures of weddings at the Moana Surfrider. It’s not cheap, but it is stunning.

If you aren’t set on a hotel as the venue, you might want to check with the Outrigger Canoe Club which is near Waikiki to see if they are available. You might need a member sponsor in order to host an event, so if you still have family there, maybe see if they know anyone. But, it’s probably worth a call to ask if the location is important to you.

I can’t speak for anything related to planning a wedding there, but one of the unexpected gems I actually enjoyed on Waikiki was the bar at the Ilikai. The hotel entrance and path back to that area had a very old-Hawaii feel that didn’t come off as dated as much as it did purposefully retro to me. If their appetizers and drinks are any indication of their potential venue service, then they were very good and reasonably priced for Waikiki. Some people might not also like being that close to the harbor, but I had memories of learning to sail there, so I think the unique view is kinda cool that way.

@Mrs McCain 2012:  I highly, highly recommend Adam Palmer for photography. He lives on the North Shore and came down to photograph our wedding on Waimanalo Bay Beach. He does some really great work and is the nicest person…

Here’s his website: http://www.adamapalmer.com/

He’s pretty reasonably priced and had our photo gallery up within a week.
