There’s only one question left – where to elope in Hawaii? This is a tough one for couples as four of the Hawaiian islands provide an amazing canvas for your union. To help with your decision we have provided the ultimate recommendation along with related considerations to ensure that your choice of location is perfect for the two of you. Let’s review!
Why Oahu is the Best Place to Elope in Hawaii and Where on the Island You Should Have Your Elopement Ceremony
Oahu Named Best Island for a Destination Wedding
The criteria that consistently make Oahu the best island for a destination wedding also speak to why it’s ideal for your elopement. For one, with Honolulu International Airport (HNL) being the primary hub for national and international travel to Hawaii, it’s the easiest and most affordable for the two of you (and any invited guests) to get to. Furthermore, Oahu is the most “developed” and therefore has the infrastructure along with the amenities, activities, and attractions you need to plan your special day and enjoy the honeymoon from the moment you exchange “I dos”. Lastly, the island has 227 miles of mostly accessible coastline which opens up the door for the epitome of elopement bliss. That’s right – an affordable outdoor wedding within the embrace of one of Oahu’s best beaches and beach parks. Read ahead to find out which one may be best suited to the two of you.
Where to Elope on Oahu
Below is a breakdown of the most popular and accessible outdoor venues for your elopement. Choose the one best suited to you as a couple.
Kahala Beach Elopement
With manicured lawns, groomed sand, and manmade islets off the shore, this beachfront resort area is for eloping couples who appreciate luxury (without spending heavily for it). View more on a Kahala Beach elopement.
Magic Island Elopement
While it feels isolated, this elopement destination is located across the road from Hawaii’s largest shopping center and is near Waikiki Beach. It’s perfect for couples who want to elope and then jump right into the hustle and bustle of Honolulu. View more on a Magic Island elopement.
North Shore Elopement
The North Shore is the polar opposite (literally and figuratively) of Magic Island (above) and is for couples who enjoy the version of Hawaii before real estate developers got their hands on most of it. If you want the most private ceremony possible (as far as outdoor weddings are concerned) the North Shore is where to make it happen. View more on a North Shore elopement.
Sandy Beach Elopement
Home to one of the world’s most powerful shore breaking waves and sharp volcanic cliffs to serve as the backdrop, this destination is for especially passionate couples who have a flare for the dramatic. View more on a Sandy Beach elopement.
