Why You Should Find Accommodation Near Your Venue

You have worked hard to plan the perfect Hawaii wedding, but have you put the same effort into finding accommodation near your venue? If you and your guests aren’t all staying at your wedding venue, it is crucial that you find places that are very near.

If you’re planning a wedding in Hawaii from afar, it is easy to underestimate distances. When you work with a Hawaii wedding planner, you can get local insight into how long it will really take to get from one place to another. This is very important if your ceremony and reception are in different locations, and if your guests will be staying somewhere else.

Your destination wedding in Hawaii is an excellent choice, and you and your guests will love taking advantage of all the places to sightsee, but you don’t want accidental sightseeing on your wedding day.
Picking a location to stay that is nearby will save time and frustration for you and your guests.

It is also good to give your guests information on a variety of accommodation so they can choose something to fit their budget. They may prefer staying some place very luxurious, or they might want to save money on their hotel so they can spend it on enjoying all Hawaii has to offer.

The best way to ensure that you are staying near your ceremony and reception is to work with a local Hawaii wedding planner. To find out more about what a wedding planner can do to help with your destination wedding, give us a call today!

Why Choose One Venue for Ceremony and Reception

Many brides wonder whether they should look for a separate Hawaii wedding venue for the ceremony and reception, or if they should find one where they have both parts of their wedding. For most couples, it makes much more sense to have everything in one location.

Save Money

One big reason for having only one venue is that it will potentially save you lots of money. Most venues offer package deals that work out less than two separate venues. This doesn’t mean you are planning a cheap wedding if you stay with only one venue, though. It just means you can put more of your budget to adding the details that will make your big day even more special.

Save Time

No matter how much you’d like it to be longer, your wedding day will still only be 24 hours. To make the most of your wedding day, cut out the need to travel between venues. Your guests can walk from the ceremony to the cocktail hour and reception. There’s no need to leave a gap in your schedule for guests to make a journey, and potentially get lost in an unfamiliar location.

Save Hassle

A single venue will also mean less hassle for planning and day-of-wedding coordination. You don’t need to worry about your florist delivering to two locations, arranging decor for two venues, and coordinating your theme and schedule between extra vendors.

Hawaii offers many beautiful wedding venues that can accomodate your ceremony and reception. When you work with an experienced Hawaii wedding planner, it will be easy to find the perfect venue for your dream destination wedding.
