How your clients can celebrate romantic milestones in the Hawaiian Islands

There’s are many reasons couples from around the world choose to celebrate their major relationship milestones in the Hawaiian Islands.

From the warmth of the aloha spirit, to the majestic beauty of the landscape, this tropical paradise is the perfect place to take your relationship to the next level.

Read on for a quick guide on five romantic milestones that are worth your clients celebrating in the Hawaiian Islands:

1. Pop the question

Have your clients been looking for the perfect place to get down on one knee and ask life’s most romantic question? The Hawaiian Islands have an abundance of potential proposal spots.

They can take advantage of the duty-free jewellers at the airport and buy an engagement ring, tax-free, and talk to local restaurant and hotel staff about their dream scenario. They love planning proposals and will help your clients go as over-the-top and extravagant, or as subtle and private as they like.

2. Tie the knot

Did you know that you can get legally married in the Hawaiian Islands? Your clients will need to pre-arrange the paperwork at least 30 days before the ceremony but apart from that, it’s an easy process.

The good news is that the Hawaiian Islands are home to many expert wedding planners who can help your clients bring your wedding to life, every step of the way.

From church weddings in a number of Christian faiths, to outdoor gatherings and chapel services with a celebrant, there’s an endless number of unique and idyllic locations for both ceremonies and receptions, as well as local professionals such as florists, hair and beauty stylists and caterers to make their vision a reality.

3. Honeymoon haven

After all the excitement and activity of a wedding, many couples want to go somewhere they can simultaneously relax and splash out on a few luxuries.

Whether your clients are drawn to the high-end dining, quality shopping and five-star hotels of Waikiki, or are more in tune with natural tranquility of a remote island resort, Hawaiian honeymoons can be as active or as languorous they want them to be.

4. Wedding anniversary

Whether your clients want to celebrate with an ultra-luxe omakase-style meal at the 16-person Sushi Sho at The Ritz-Carlton Waikiki, or would rather enjoy The Royal Hawaiian’s famous luau with bottomless mai tais and a traditional South Pacific menu, memories are there for the making.

Your clients can swim with manta rays on the Island of Hawaii, take a helicopter ride along the majestic Na Pali coastline or snorkel with green sea turtles at Poipu Bay. Whatever they decide to do, it will be an anniversary to remember.

5. Vow renewal

Whether your clients are Elvis fans with dreams of re-enacting the canal scene from Blue Hawaii, or want a private vow renewal next to a waterfall or on a beach, local Hawaiian wedding planners and celebrants can help them create (or recreate, as it were) a special way to say ‘I do’ again.

If your clients want to do a formal vow renewal, they will need to coordinate this with a wedding planner or celebrant and will need to bring their marriage certificate, as well as any relevant divorce or death certificates with them.

If your clients prefer a more informal and yet equally poignant way of saying ‘I still do’, it might be worth them considering a sacred blessing.

With the help of some friendly locals, they can arrange for a local kahuna to bless their union. A traditional blessing may include everything from using native ginger leaves to flick water from a carved turtle bowl in the direction of the four winds, to chanting ‘olis’ (traditional Hawaiian chants).
