When is the best time to elope in Hawaii?

Choosing your date is the first step to making it all happen for you and your partner. Whether you’re escaping the cold of winter or taking a stellar summer vacation, the average temperature year-round in Hawaii is 80 degrees F, so you can’t go wrong with any time of year! Even their rainy season isn’t all that rainy (but if it does happen to rain on your wedding day, we’ve got you covered!). Determining the time of year can also dictate some of your expenses, as prices tend to be higher during tourist season, which lasts from mid-December to mid-April and June-September.

Once you and your partner have chosen when you’d like to elope in Hawaii, it’s time to begin the process of choosing the location. There’s no shortage of epic backdrops here: whether you’re looking at one of its white-sand beaches that are perfect for sunset ceremonies or its mountaintops overlooking the Pacific ocean, there’s a special location that will feel like a perfect fit for you. And much like love, once you find the right spot, you’ll just know. This is all about you and your love, so take your time with choosing what kind of backdrop you want to set the tone for your day.

Choosing the right Hawaii elopement package

After you accomplish the crucial step of choosing your date and elopement location, finding an elopement package that suits your needs is the proverbial cherry on top. What do you envision for your big day? Do you want a out-of-this-world photographer who will document your day, giving you tangible memories for years to come? Does the thought of a lush, tropical bouquet make your heart beat faster? Does the idea of getting glammed up with a hair and makeup artist sound like the perfect way to get ready for your elopement? Figuring out what vendors are a priority will help guide you towards selecting which elopement package is a perfect match for you.

What do I need to elope in Hawaii?

The Aloha State requires a few things in order to elope in Hawaii. First, you’ll need a marriage license (more on making your Hawaii elopement legal in the next question!), but no witnesses or blood tests are required. Second, you’ll need a registered officiant, pastor, or celebrant to perform the ceremony and file the license. And while we’re on the subject…

How to make your Hawaii elopement legal

Every state has different requirements for applying for and receiving a marriage license, and the State of Hawaii is simple in some ways, but not-so-simple in others. In order to apply for your marriage license, you’ll need an ID – state issued or a passport works – and a copy of a divorce decree if either you or your partner have previously been married. You can begin this process online, but you’ll still need to make an appointment to validate your information and obtain the physical copy of your marriage license.

The state of Hawaii does not require a waiting period nor a witness (so if you’re planning on eloping alone, you don’t have to worry about finding a kind stranger to witness your big day). The total application fee is $65.

It is crucial to receive your marriage license prior to attending your ceremony, otherwise your union will not be legally recognized as a marriage! Set an alert on your phone; write it down in your daily planner; do anything and everything you can do to remind yourself to bring your license!

How to prepare for the day of your elopement

Planning an elopement is enough to give anyone the pre-wedding jitters. It’s a big, important moment that you’ve likely been waiting for,  so if you’re got a bundle of nerves, don’t worry – we’ve got you covered.

We’ll send you an itinerary of your elopement details prior to your ceremony, which ensures everyone is one the same page for details concerning time, location and series of events. Be sure you’re clear on where you’re meeting and where you intend to hold your ceremony. Your team can always make suggestions if you’re unsure – that’s what they’re here for! Always ensure to bring the hard copy of your marriage license with you, as all parties present will sign.

If you’re eloping without a coordinator, a great way to make sure you’ve not forgotten anything is by creating a checklist for yourself. Your checklist should include things like your marriage license, your vows, any additional details you want your photographer to capture, and gratuity for your vendors. We know that Aloha time is a very real thing, so make sure you leave plenty of time in between each portion of the day to ensure you don’t stress about running late!

Whether you’re still figuring out the beginning stages of how to elope in Hawaii or if you’ve already got your plane tickets book, having all of this information at the ready will help make you feel less stressed and more focused on what really counts – the person you’re choosing to spend forever with.

It’s No Secret…

Traditional weddings are incredibly expensive and can take years to plan. When couples choose to elope, their ceremonies can be planned quickly at a fraction of the cost. But don’t take our word for it!

The entire experience was so nice and stress free. It was exactly what we wanted out of our elopement.

- Danielle and Luke

Eloping to Hawaii wasn’t something we really considered for a long time prior to booking with Simply Eloped, but once we found Simply Eloped, it all came together quickly and seamlessly. Finding this company solidified our decision to go this route since we already had the trip booked. We are super grateful Simply Eloped was able to make this happen for us in such a short amount of time. They are professionals to a T! Everyone we spoke with, from Haley, to the officiant, and our photographer, were all friendly and answered every single question we had! 10/10 will recommend to anyone looking to elope.

- Matt and Sarah
