Selecting the right date for your wedding can be time-consuming and nerve-racking.  There are several working parts to consider which could play a part in your selection process, such as:

  • Family and friends. If you are planning to share your special day with those you love, you will obviously need to pick a date that works well for your group.
  • Wedding theme. The weather in Hawaii is pretty moderate; however, summers do have occasional sweltering peaks during the day.  This is important to consider if you are going to have an outdoor wedding.
  • Budget. If you are trying to cut down the costs of your wedding, you’ll definitely want to plan your date carefully (we’ll discuss more about this below).

Over the years, our team at Hawaiian Style Event Rentals has acquired a knowledge of the islands and weddings.  If you want an incident-free and relaxing wedding, you may want to avoid the dates below.

Spring Break Madness

Unless you enjoy large crowds of young college-aged individuals everywhere, you may want to try a different time for your wedding.  Traffic can come to a screeching halt on the islands during Spring Break and finding accommodations (particularly quiet romantic ones) could be nearly impossible.  Newlyweds will likely find it difficult to explore and enjoy the island atmosphere during the crowded party atmosphere during these dates.

Holidays

If you want to significantly increase the costs of your wedding, choose a holiday wedding.  Rate increases will include hotels, catering, flights, entertainment, and local events.  Demand for all services during the holidays skyrockets throughout the islands.  To stay within a budget cross-off all major holidays including local Hawaiian cultural days which also attract a lot of tourists.

Unless you have an unlimited source of money, it makes sense to budget your Hawaiian wedding appropriately.  Just because you are opting to keep a strict budget doesn’t mean that your wedding will not turn out just as you want it.  In fact, several of our clients put to use a variety of money-saving ideas to keep their weddings in the financial black.  This blog and future ones will cover some of those tips.  If you have questions about any of the following suggestions or would like to speak with the Hawaiian Style Event Rentals team, give us a call at 808.740.0065.

Pick A Cost-Effective Time

Where you aware how holidays can affect the price of your wedding?  The fiscal law of supply and demand raises the prices of things such as:

  • Catering
  • Entertainment
  • Flowers
  • Hotel accommodations
  • Travel

Hence, choosing a wedding date that is not around a major holiday can save you a significant amount of money.

Travel Wisely

Researching your airfare is essential if you are trying to keep the price of the wedding down.  A good idea is to keep watch for great deals to Hawaii if you plan to purchase your tickets yourself.  Another strategy is to take advantage of destination wedding packages which sometimes include hotel accommodations.  If you go this route, keep in mind that you may get better discounts if you order with a group.  Lastly, book your flight as early as possible to find the best deals.

Register Your Wedding Costs

Instead of listing nominal items list household goods, list portions of your major wedding expenses.  Having expenditures like the meals, honeymoon suite, entertainment, wedding rental items, and other odds and ends can greatly reduce your overall costs.  Furthermore, you won’t have to deal with having your guest bring gifts with them to Hawaii, and you won’t have to pay additional expenses to have them fly back with you.

Hawaiian Style Event Rentals is always at your service to help you have the wedding of your dreams.  Call us if you need assistance planning for the necessary items for your Hawaiian wedding.

Hosting an event can be a tall order.  Yet, one of the foremost objectives of having an event is to have your guests enjoy the function.  There are several ways to accomplish guest enjoyment, but one central aspect is the comfort.  It is nearly impossible to enjoy an event if you are uncomfortable.  Hence, creating spaces that allow your guest to relax and appreciate the atmosphere is an essential part of being a good host.  Sometimes when clients book our team at Hawaiian Style Event Rentals, we’ll inquire about lounging areas for the proposed event.  Here’s why.

Lounging’s Importance

Sometimes lounging is overlooked.  Hosts focus on dining chairs and specific seating areas for all guests.  Although it is possible to have a functional event without a lounge area, it can lead to discomfort.  As a rule of thumb, the more guest you invite, the more you will need a lounging area.  Why?  As more people arrive, the more crowded the event will become.  People enjoy space and lounging areas enable your guests to space out a bit.

Another function of a designated lounge area is to create space where people can interact away from the crowd.  With more people come more noise, so a lounge area allows people to speak in normal tones.  It also creates an aura of relaxation, which is one of the whole points of having an event in Hawaii.  The natural setting of the islands invites your guests to figuratively “let their hair down” and soak up the tropical scenes.

Lounging Options for any Event

Hawaiian Style Event Rentals features lounging furniture suitable for any event you can imagine.  We have sofas, loveseats, tables, stands, and accompanying accessories that create intimate and friendly spaces.  Take a look at few our items within our Lounge Furniture Gallery.  If you have questions or would like to get ideas on setups, give us a call at 808-740-0065.

Hawaiian Style Event Rental is proud to be a supporter of the 2018 Maui Whale Festival.  For the 38th year, the Pacific Whale Foundation has played an active role in creating awareness and support for whale conservation.  As a business that operates wholly from Hawaii, we understand how our activities can affect the environment positively or negatively.  Hence, our team chooses to work in tandem with the Pacific Whale Foundation to spread awareness.  Below are some interesting things that we have learned about whales and some of the events taking place in February to support whales.

Why Whales Are Important

Whale play an important role in balancing marine environments.  Since our planet is covered by about 71 percent water, the ocean’s environment greatly impacts its land counterpart.  As humans primarily reside on the 29 percent of Earth’s land mass, it is obviously that we must give thought to how the greater portion of Earth’s environments will affect the lesser.  Here are a few points that we found interesting about whales.

  • Whales help to stabilize the aquatic reproduction cycle and food chain. Keeping both in balance greatly impacts our food supply.
  • The study of whales improves our understanding of the oceans (again the largest part of our planet).
  • Whale excrement helps to balance carbon in the atmosphere, which ultimately improves the environment for sea and land lifeforms. You could say that whales fertilize the oceans.

There are several ways to support and enjoy many of the events that will occur during February 10th and 24th.  If you would like more information, visit this website or visit our us on Facebook for more information.

Hawaiian culture is known for its skillful use of tropical floral arrangements.  Using them throughout your wedding is a tasteful way to add color and beauty.  Try placing flowers in different spots such as on the back of chairs, along walkways, with food or have flower petals spread across the sand.

Arches on the Sand

Wedding arches are astoundingly beautiful.  However, can you imagine an arch on the sand with a Hawaiin ocean in the background?

Hire A Planner

If you and your spouse have visions for your wedding, a good wedding planner can mesh your collective ideas into a unique wedding.  Planners play a vital role in organizing, purchasing, and ironing out the tiniest of details.  Most are very budget conscious and have a complete understanding of how to get the best deals on items for your wedding.

Finalize A Date

Having a fixed date in your mind allows for proper planning.  If you hire a planner, the date and budget will be the first things required to move forward.  The date will have a significant impact on the rest of the planning for the wedding.  The season, attire, and venue style are typically affected by the date chosen.  The more time you have between the engagement and the wedding the date, the more flexibility you will have for amenities.  If you can not decide on one date, choose a few and see which one works best for your family and friends.

Venue Research

Finding the perfect venue for your wedding can be challenging.  Again, having a planner can be quite helpful in expediting this process.  While it may be convenient to look at some venues online, nothing beats touring them in person.  You’ll be amazed at some of the ideas that may come to mind while you tour the facility.

“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy!”

Many of our corporate clients fully understand the above quote.  Which is why when they plan a corporate event in Hawaii, our team is thrilled to help.  Hawaiian Style Event Rentals has the capability to create unique atmospheres for virtually any corporate event you can think of.  In fact, we have built a reputation for some of the most amazing corporate setups in Kapalua Bay and Maui.

Below are a few reasons why a Hawaiian style corporate event is a perfect way to improve your team’s focus and morale.

Team Building in Maui

Improving the comradery among your employees can be difficult especially when they only socialize at work.  And lines are easily drawn between management and employees over time.  Team building exercises during company events can help to ease that tension and improve lines of communication.  The beautiful scenery and fresh beach air throughout Maui seem to break down the toughest barriers in the workplace.  It is hard not to make amazing memories in Hawaii!

Inspire Creativity

Does your business thrive on creativity?  If it does, infusing your team with fresh ideas is critical to your livelihood.  Even the most creative individuals need a change of atmosphere to consider new approaches.  Hosting your corporate event in Hawaii gives them that opportunity.  Your team can experience Hawaiian culture and interact with workmates outside of the typical office routine.  Such a getaway also allows for employees that may have never formally met to share ideas and perspectives which can foster richer ideas.

Recognize Employee Milestones & Efforts

Organizations continue to recognize the power that internal culture has on its employees and leadership.  Company events are useful tools to validate employees that exemplify company culture through their dedication, values, and hard work.  While having the event in Hawaii is a treat in itself, there is nothing like an employer recognizing the fine labors of an employee in front of their peers.

Some of the best moments in marriage involve the unnecessary things.   It’s not a requirement to send flowers on a random day, to put on a candlelight dinner, or to get away with your spouse spontaneously.  Yet, such moments give life to a marriage.  The same is true of renewing your vows—it’s not necessary, but the meaning of the ceremony is priceless.  At Hawaiian Style Event Rentals, we can’t help but to get excited about assisting lovers with vow renewal ceremonies.  Are you considering a vow renewal ceremony?  If so, there a several reasons why hosting your event in Hawaii can make a lasting impression.

Hawaii Vow Renewal Ceremony + Vacation

Just as Hawaii is a prominent destination wedding location and vacation spot, it also makes for a spectacular vow renewal ceremony scene.  Hence, many find it reasonable to merge a vacation with their vow renewal ceremony.  Hawaii is full of cultural events and astounding scenic areas.  With a little creativity, you can set up an itinerary of things to do to make the entire event unforgettable.  Ideas that our clients have found helpful include:

  • Creating a theme to your vow renewal ceremony
  • Incorporating Hawaiian island culture into your vow renewal
  • Hiking the islands and finding memorable spots for spontaneity
  • Inviting friends for the first day or two of your stay and enjoying some of the outdoor activities throughout the islands
  • Finding a cultural event to attend during your visit and filming each other as part of family keepsake (even making an ending message to each other or your family)

Getting the Vow Renewal Ceremony Accomplished

Of course, wishful thinking will only take you so far.  Instead of only thinking the event over, why not get some of the particulars out of the way so it can become plannable.  If you have questions about how to begin the process or are counting the costs, give our team a call.  We are located in Hawaii and can be your eyes and ears, throughout the entire process.  808-740-0065

 

 

Hawaii is known as a prime vacation spot.  The mountains, beaches, flora, and other scenery makes the islands a great place for nearly any event.  Are you thinking of having an event in Hawaii?  If so, there are some basic things that you should consider before executing your event.  At Hawaiian Style Event Rentals, offer a variety of services and items for events like receptions, weddings, and other special occasions.  Below are a few of the tips that we provide to clients who are planning their next event in Hawaii.

Organize The Right Team

Whether your event is large or small, having a team in place to help you is always the best option.  Each member of your team should understand what they are responsible for and how they will contribute to the entire event.  Building the right team could make your event an amazing success, while the wrong team could spell disaster (see Fyre Festival 2017).  Communication is key.  Everyone should constantly be informed and on the same page.

Setting A Date & Deadlines

Every event needs an end date to work towards.  Without it, your team will not be able to envision a goal and timelines will be nearly impossible to create.  An definite date allow us you to set progressive milestones, which add fever to the team’s efforts.  Many events have been pushed to the wayside because of a lack of a tangible date.

Creating a Master Plan

Working things out in your head is an good concept, but it doesn’t allow your team to share its collective talents.  Hence, the best course is to put a plan in writing.  Many have found that simply putting initial thoughts to paper helps to fuel a collective’s creativity.  There are dozens of PC programs and apps that make planning any event a breeze (we offer a free create your event tool).  They also aid in the communication process.
