Hawaiian Wedding Themes


Choosing a wedding theme that reflects both the personalities of a bride and groom can be the first of many wedding planning decisions that create division amongst a couple. When one person would like a relaxed ambiance and the other would like classic and elegant, meeting half-way can seem impossible. Hawaiian wedding themes can be just the right answer. Choosing beautiful tropical Hawaiian blooms and authentic dining and entertainment are just the start of the many ways to plan Hawaiian wedding themes.

Creating a Hawaiian Ambiance

While a beach wedding location might be the perfect place for Hawaiian wedding themes, it isn’t always possible depending on the timing and the actual venue of your event. However, with a few special touches, you can create a Hawaiian escape for you as well as your guests. As your guests arrive, you can have the groomsmen and bridesmaids provide a traditional Hawaiian greeting of lei’s made from fresh flowers or from paper flowers in coordinating colors.

Your color palette and lighting can be additional ways to create your Hawaiian theme. There are bright pinks, purples and yellows along with many shades of green to use throughout your flowers and fabrics. Using white candles inside hurricane lamps with sand and small shells or even using floating candles in water colored to remind guests of ocean blues is another way to continue your Hawaiian themes. Depending on your wedding site or reception location, you may even consider using tiki torches for lighting.

Unique Hawaiian Decorations and Entertainment

Depending on the style of your Hawaiian wedding theme, you have many ways to represent the culture with your own personality. You could consider having a wedding cake in the shape of a volcano, complete with hot lava colored icing. The many types of tropical Hawaiian fruit can also be used as centerpieces, table gifts for your guests or used in beautiful floral arrangements. There are many food artists who actually carve fruit into flowers, animals or anything you can probably imagine. You can feature fruit in floral arrangements as well.

Your guests may be expecting a luau for a reception with a typical buffet of fresh fruits, roasted pig and of course tropical drinks. What they might not expect is Hawaiian entertainment, such as live musicians, hula dancers or Polynesian dancers who can perform a traditional high energy dance. Dancers trained to use fire in their performances may also be an option depending on the policies of your reception site. You could also consider taking Hawaiian dance lessons to wow your guests with your culturally inspired first dance.

When you think you have to choose between elegant and relaxed for your wedding celebration, consider a Hawaiian wedding theme. You can surprise your guests with authentic Hawaiian entertainment or be a little more understated and choose to simply have a wonderful Hawaiian menu including fresh tropical fruits, roasted meats and tropical drinks. Your Hawaiian wedding theme is the perfect opportunity to show your personalities and create an evening to remember for both you and your guests.
