Oahu Beach Wedding Permit

In addition to offering Oahu beach wedding packages, Islander Weddings helps you get a permit to enjoy uninterrupted oceanfront space for your ceremony.

You’re ready to make your dream of an outdoor wedding on Oahu a reality. You’ve considered locations such as Kahala, Magic Island, Sandy Beach, the North Shore or other secluded outdoor venue. You’re just left with one pressing question – do you need a permit to get married on the beach in Hawaii? And if so, how are you to go about getting a permit?

Thankfully you’ve arrived here at Islander Weddings, or your plans for a dream wedding on the island could have been disrupted. After all, you can’t simply show up with a Minster or Justice of the Peace, say your vows, and split before anyone notices. That said, the permit process is easy enough with Islander Weddings.

DLNR Hawaii Beach Wedding Permit

The State of Hawaii’s Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) stipulates that permits must be secured for all “commercial” activities on Oahu’s public beaches, which includes your nuptials.

Islander Weddings holds an existing DLNR Wiki Permit account, with a valid and current certificate of insurance. As a result, we are able to obtain a permit for you.

Hawaii Beach Wedding Permit Cost

Your desire to enjoy an affordable Hawaii wedding package is not hampered by the need to get a permit. It’s just $30. You’ll have plenty of room in your budget to spend on what matters most to you.
