Get married on the big Island of Hawaii
Destination weddings on the Big Island of Hawaii are more popular than ever and for good reason. The Big Island, formally known as Hawaii, offers the best of both worlds for your wedding and honeymoon. Any bride and groom looking to marry or simply honeymoon on the Big Island will not be disappointed, as the island haseverything typically associated with a Hawaiian vacation, as well as so much more.
A bride and groom and their friends and family can take in the beautiful scenery on one side of the Big Island, known as Kailua, by resting and relaxing amid palm trees and plumeria. This is where the party can walk on the beach, swim in the warm water, take a paddle boarding or surfing lesson, attend a luau and, if it's a destination wedding, witness the bride and groom exchange vows as the sun sets.
The next day, the party can explore the other side of the island, known as Hilo, where they will find a mix of terrains not often seen on other Hawaiian islands, from open fields to rainforests. The party can decide to go horseback riding or walk through a rainforest or even observe an active volcano. Needless to say, it will be a vacation that the couple and guests will never forget.

A destination wedding can be a much more affordable alternative to a traditional lavish wedding. Many places offer complete wedding packages which often includes an on-site wedding consultant to help you with all of the special details of your wedding.
Another great reason to have a destination wedding is the ability to have a smaller guest list. Instead of planning for hundreds of people you will have only close friends and family who are willing to make the trip out to your destination for your wedding.
Although a destination wedding is a more affordable option for the bride and groom, it does come at a higher cost to your guests. A small, intimate guest list will allow you to share your special day with the people who really mean the most to you.
Many couples who choose a destination wedding, also opt to combine their wedding location with their honeymoon dream. Get married in a stunning location, and then continue the celebrations in the same spot or enjoy the duration of your trip at a nearby resort.
