Astounding oceanfront views, amazing weather, iconic Hawaiian culture, and scenic island escapes make Maui a favorite destination for couples seeking to tie the knot.  Hawaii is among the most popular wedding destination spots in the world.  Furthermore, the team at Hawaiian Style Event Rentals helps couples realize their dream wedding.

If you are imagining sealing your vows on the beach, on a sailboat, from a mountain view, or within a historic building, you’ll love what Maui has to offer.

Beach Weddings

If you and your significant other enjoy the beach, you’ll love the sands of Maui.  We’ve seen many a couple present their vows with their toes in the sands.  Additionally, the beaches of Maui host so many activities for couples to enjoy.  After you say ‘I do’, you’ll have an array of things to get into on the island.

Park & Garden Weddings

The natural fauna and State Parks of Hawaii are simply beautiful.  Your wedding party can enjoy the surroundings of tropical gardens or open grassy lawns.  There are too many places in Maui to recount in one blog.  If you are looking for places for your wedding, give our team a call.  We know the island inside out!

Historic Weddings

Maui is steep with history and culture.  It is difficult to not find places of historical significance throughout the island.  Fans of historical building and sites will be amazed at the setups that others have had for their weddings at these sites.  Any of these locations can be the perfect backdrop for a picturesque wedding.

If we were to give an account of all that Maui has to offer in terms of wedding venues, this blog would be pages long.  Instead of imagining what your wedding may be like in Maui, why not give a professional a call for advice.  We are open to help you look over ideas, find locations, and of course rent all the items you’ll need for your special day.

New Year’s Eve is a wonderful time to reminisce with friends and loved ones and get excited for the year ahead! Pick up the phone and invite some partygoers, because we’ve got 5 tips for hosting a New Year’s Eve bash to remember.

Jam Out

N.Y.E. is a night for everyone celebrate, get invigorated, and let loose. Set the tone of your soiree with the proper beats. If you’re not confident in your own iPod playlists, don’t chance it!  Consider hiring a DJ to host the evening. Music is the most important piece of this puzzle and it will make or break the success of your event. If your venue is spacious, you might need to rent sound equipment like speakers and microphones that allow you to address guests and provide entertainment to keep the party going all night.

Feed Them Well

Your food and beverage menu runs a very close second to the music. This is your second chance to impress guests. An open bar is always a nice touch. If your pocketbook isn’t prepared for that sort of commitment, consider hosting a specialty drink for cocktail hour or rent a self-serve Champaign fountain for your guests! Whether you’re providing dinner or hors-d’oeuvres only, keep food warm with the right chafing dishes.

Don’t Forget the Little Things

Take the time to focus on things like decor, flatware, and linens to provide the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable and social-media-worthy evening. Evenings will be chilly at this time of year, so think ahead and rent heaters if you expect guests to utilize a patio space. Consider giving out creative party favors at the end of the night and be sure you come up with a festive hashtag for everyone to use! It’s the little things that will set your New Year’s Eve bash above the rest.

Prepare For The Long Haul

One thing to remember about hosting a New Year’s Eve party is that the “party” doesn’t really even start until midnight! It’s going to be a late night and you will want to plan accordingly. Plan ahead for designated drivers, energy drinks, coffee, midnight snacks, and plenty of water. You might even set out festive fuzzy socks or flip flops for ladies to slip on as their feet start to tire.

Your New Year’s Eve bash will require some behind-the-scenes work. With all the right elements, it will be remembered for years to come. Contact our team of experts here at Hawaiian Style Event Rentals to get your party started on the right foot.

So, you’ve rented the perfect venue for your event and you’re excited to get started with your decorating… until you notice a few imperfections that simply must be handled – immediately. Fortunately, with a little imagination and perhaps a few supplies, you can transform your imperfect venue into a stunning space for your event. Here, we’ve diagnosed some common venue issues you might face. Plus, we’ve provided some flawless solutions to ensure a successful event no matter what you’re dealing with.

The Flooring Is Terrible!

You may have chosen a venue that is the perfect size and in the perfect location for your event. But now, you’re realizing that the flooring is just awful! Don’t worry. Just rent a dance floor and prepare for a great night ahead.

The Chairs Are Ugly

Having ugly chairs is not ideal, but if you find yourself in this situation, you’ve got a couple of options. If the chairs are usable, but just not visually appealing, you can make your own chair covers with fabric or tulle. On the other hand, if the chairs just will not work, you might want to rent chairs instead.

The Wallpaper Is Too Bold

Whether the walls are painted a bright color that clashes with your decor, or they’re covered with outdated wallpaper, you can easily cover them with drapery or use lights to create the ambiance you want for your event.

The Space Is Too Large

If your event does not require a large amount of space, but you’ve got all this extra room, you can use rectangular tables instead of round. Rectangular tables take up more space and can be used in tandem with lounge furniture to create a cozier, more welcoming environment for your guests.

There Are Unsightly Posts and Columns

If your venue boasts posts and columns that just seem to get in the way, you can disguise them with foliage or drapery that complements your decor.

Overall, If you’re unhappy with your venue’s appearance, there’s no problem that can’t be fixed with a little imagination and a few decorations. Don’t stress, and to learn more about how you can transform your venue into the stunning space you desire, contact the experts at Hawaiian Style Event Rentals.

Whenever you plan your wedding, you’ll likely imagine friends, family, and colleagues enjoying your big day.  Whether the event is large or small, having your guests there makes all the difference.  There are ways to ruin the moment for guest though.  Avoid the following guest irritants if you would like your wedding to be memorable for everyone attending.

More Than A Mouthful Of Speeches

Hardly anyone comes to Hawaii to hear long speeches—even during a wedding.  After a few minutes of talk about experiences of the past, cherishing moments, family histories, wedding vows, and like nearly anyone would be a bit restless.  Being at a wedding (likely in formal attire) listening to long speeches is not on the top of anyone’s list—including family.  Try to keep the orators to a few minutes tops to keep the wedding moving along.

Food Limits

Among the last things that you ever want to occur at your wedding is for guests to lack food.  A lack of food would also include going top heavy on things your guest do not want to eat.  Hungry guests quickly turn into irritable guests, and they will want to leave even if they won’t tell you.  Make sure that your menu is diverse, and your food supply is plentiful.

Uncomfortable Furnishings & Locations

Seating that is highly uncomfortable is a wedding killer.  The same is true of seating that is located in the sun, near blasting speakers, or near a lot of foot traffic.  Plan your seating well to make the wedding enjoyable.  Instead of only having chairs, try using a lounge area that some can use if they need.

So, you’ve decided to make Hawaii the location for your corporate event.  Excellent choice!  There are few locations on Earth that can provide an island experience like Hawaii.  The landscape, culture, food, activities, and weather keep people coming back every year.  Businesses of all sorts host their events here annually as well.

During the setup of your event, you’ll likely need to rent items such as tents, chairs, dancefloors, bars, etc.  However, which vendor should you choose?  Below are a few points you may want to keep in mind.

Reputation, Reputation, Reputation

As you research your vendors, investigate their reputations.  Of course, you can look into online reviews.  However, when doing so, you should be discerning.  Read their reviews to see if they are authentic.  Check for details instead of a simple “they were awesome” reviews.  As you boil down your list, ask the businesses if you can contact some of their former clients.  Speaking with another company or client about whether they would work with a vendor again is very telling.

Standard of Service

While choosing your company in Hawaii, you’ll want everything to run smoothly so that everyone can enjoy themselves as much as possible.  Working with a vendor who is willing to fulfill your needs is critical to having a successful event.  Ask your vendor questions about setup and accommodations for unexpected events.  They should be able to walk you through their protocols and give examples of what they’ve done in the past.

Quality of Rental Items

You’ll need to know the quality of the items you are renting.  Furnishings that are flimsy or dirty can hurt the reputation of your business (particularly if you invite VIPs).  The vendor should be able to send you images of the items you are renting or give you a pre-rental walkthrough of their items.

Are you planning to go to Hawaii for your company retreat?  If you are, you may want to consider a few different ways to enjoy the event.  At Hawaiian Style Event Rentals, we’ve handled several corporate events that have been highly successful.  Below are a few tips that go beyond the normal run of the mill activities typically associated with company hosted events.

Beyond the Normal Corporate Event Itineraries

Instead of grouping together for basically the same ideas that are constants at company events, why not make the most of Hawaii?  Why not consider some of the ideas below.

  • Forget The Beach. Hanging out on the beach is completely normal.  However, it is only one aspect of what can be done on the island.  A lot of fun occurs in other places throughout the island.  Even if you are drawn to the beach, why not have your company get into water activities such as snorkeling, canoeing, paddle boating, jet skiing, fishing, or sightseeing via boating tours.
  • See The Heights. When most think of Hawaii, they think of beaches and open waters.  Nevertheless, the island system has several high mountains (some reaching 12,000 feet above sea level).  Seeing Hawaii from these vantage points can breathe new life into your employees and it makes for memorable events (not to mention that you can get some excellent images for your company).
  • Were you aware that Hawaii that has farming tours?  Some of them have interactive activities and team building exercises that are specifically designed for businesses.  These farms can teach valuable lessons while giving your team a different view of Hawaii.

In addition to the ideas listed above, there are other cultural events and activities that are quite unique to Hawaii.  Looking for ideas?  Give our team a call!  We’ll also give you a great quote on items you can rent for your event.

There is nothing like having a bar at your wedding.  It is an easy way to move from the marriage rites and ceremony to the celebratory activities.  Before you decide on alcohol:

  • Verify if the venue you are using has a cork charge (if so, you will want to include such costs in your overall budget).
  • If you are setting up the bar yourself, be sure to stock enough for your intended number of guests (the typical formula is 1 drink per person per hour).

There are several types of bar styles that we feature for rental.  Of course, each of them can be modified in thousands of ways to accommodate your décor, theme, and guest size.  While you are choosing your bar style, you’ll need to determine the way your bar functions.  Below are the three main ways that most couples set up their alcoholic bar.

Open Bar

If you have an open bar, your guests will love you!  It is the most generous bar approach, but it will raise the total cost of your wedding.  Open bars, if you don’t know, allow guests to order any drink they desire.  When there is an open bar, your guests will likely drink more than normal.  Hence, you may want to increase your overall alcohol budget.

Limited Bar

To relieve yourself of a huge alcohol bill, you could limit the number of drinks each guest can have for free.  Such an arrangement would be a limited bar.  In this setup, you would set not only the number of drinks but also the types that are available to your guests without cost.  To control bar access and to have things run smoothly, here are some strategies:

  • Have specific times for when alcoholic beverages are served.
  • Hire wait staff to distribute drinks so that guests do not overwhelm the bar.
  • Limit the amount of time the bar is open.
  • Give drink tickets each guest along with their invitations.

Cash Bar

The least expensive way to go is using a cash bar.  Every guest pays for their share of what they drink.

Renewing vows has become a trending celebration in the 21st century.  As marriages continue to face unprecedented challenges, many couples who have endured trials are choosing to honor the strength of their union.  Our Hawaiian Style Event Rentals team has assisted married couples of all backgrounds, ethnicities, and belief systems.  Are you and your life partner thinking of celebrating your choice to spend your life together?  If so, why not do so on the beautiful islands of Hawaii.  We would love to help you to do so!

Wedding Renewal and Vacation

One of the great benefits of choosing to have your wedding renewal in Hawaii lies in the opportunity to make it a vacation as well.  Hawaii is a year-round vacation spot due to its beauty, weather, culture, events, and location.  We’ve seen couples create astoundingly unforgettable events/vacations due here in Hawaii.  Some of the ideas that we’ve seen in action include:

  • Themed Vow Renewals. Creating a theme, particularly one that encompasses ideas that are significant to your marriage makes for special memories.
  • Immersing Yourselves In Hawaiian Culture. Experiencing the differences within a different culture can serve as a backdrop of differences that two people in a marriage have.  Appreciating the beauty in another culture (along with all of its differences) can have a soothing effect as you continue to respect and love the differences in each other.
  • Exploring The Islands. Another avenue of creating memories involves exploring the natural scenery the islands have to offer.  We’ve heard from many couples who have found special places throughout the islands who simply loved navigating together.

Getting It Done

Desiring a great vow renewal is not the same as having one.  It takes concerted effort to get such an occasion off the ground.  Allow us to help.  Hawaiian Style Event Rentals is willing and available to assist you and your significant other to make your vow renewal special.
