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.

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.

2019 LOOKBOOK

 

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.

Most people who are thinking of holding a Hawaiian wedding do so because of the weather, white beaches, picturesque mountains, culture, and a wide variety of island activities.  Indeed, Hawaii has a lot to offer!  However, planning a wedding in Hawaii can be quite complicated when you do not live there.  To avoid problems that can arise with planning an island wedding, you should consider teaming with Hawaiian Style Event Rentals.

Picking An Area In Hawaii

If you do not have a perfect wedding spot yet, you should take a look at the most prominent island in Hawaii first. Maui boasts of some of the most alluring tropical scenery in the world. This island is also less populated than others like Oahu, which makes it more suitable for private weddings. The other islands to consider are Lani and Big Island. The entire region enjoys good very predictable weather patterns.  Hence, if you desire a church, garden, beach front, or ballroom wedding,  the danger of storms should not be an issue.

We Are Wedding Planner Friendly

Obviously, any who are having a medium-size to large wedding know the advantages of using a planner.  We assist wedding planners by taking care of all of minutest details of the venue’s setup.  Hawaiian Style Event Rentals features a variety of whole theme collections as well as individual pieces items to create a wholly unique look. Our budgeting is versatile, and we enjoy helping planners and families to build the wedding of their dreams.

Finally, Hawaii has several excellent honeymoon packages for couples. You may either choose to stay on the island of your venue or to travel to another beautiful destination nearby. No matter what you prefer, the team at Hawaii Style Event Rentals can help.
