When should you send Hawaiian wedding invitations?

The weather in Hawaii is appealing year-round, but the off-season—May, June, September, and October—are the best options. The winter months, especially during holidays, have an influx of travelers which means higher prices for accommodations. The middle of summer has fewer vacationers, but the high temperatures and hot sun are generally less comfortable for an outdoor wedding.

If you’re having a destination wedding in Hawaii, give guests, and yourself, plenty of time to prepare. It’s recommended to send destination wedding invitations four months in advance. Ti give guests plenty of time to make necessary arrangements. Save the dates for destination weddings are generally sent a year ahead of the big day.

However, just because your wedding is Hawaiian-themed doesn’t mean you have to get married on the island itself—a Hawaiian-themed wedding can take place anytime, anywhere. If you're hosting in your hometown with zero travel required, send your wedding invitations eight weeks in advance.

Decorating ideas for a Hawaiian-themed wedding

There are so many ways to decorate a Hawaiian-themed wedding, but what will have the biggest impact are the colors you choose—typically, bold and bright is the way to go. Style some brown grass accents to mimic traditional Hawaiian skirts while filling bouquets with orchids, plumeria, lilies, and hibiscus to continue the tropical theme. Add a mix of paper lanterns and string lights to recreate the night sky, if indoors, or to create a warm and welcoming ambiance outside.

Greet guests with colorful leis as they enter the ceremony and give them custom cocktail options featuring pineapple juice, fresh-cut fruit, and mini umbrellas. Large palm leaves make an excellent base for centerpieces and also look great on their own as table runners—mist the leaf tips with gold spray paint to give them a more glamorous feel.

When it comes to wedding favors, spoil guests with a coconut-scented candle, flip-flops for dancing, or personalize a pair of sunglasses with their name.
