|Here are some Hawaiian Wedding Traditions you may want to discuss with your Hawaii Minister or Officiant.
The exchange of leis – A traditional Hawaiian wedding often begins with the bride and groom exchanging leis. The lei is an unbroken circle, symbolizing life-long commitment and devotion.
The blowing of the conch shell – In Hawaii, the blowing of the conch shell represents the beginning of a significant event. This produces a beautiful sound and is the perfect way to announce that your Hawaii Wedding is beginning.
Ti leaf and lava rock –
A lava rock is wrapped in a Ti leaf and left at the site of the ceremony as an offering, blessing and prayer, marking the place of your union.. The lava rock symbolizes the moment you made a lifelong commitment to each other.
Did you know? - You are not legally required to have witnesses present at your ceremony. Although some wedding planners and officiants will offer to provide you witnesses (for an extra fee), they are not required by Hawaii state law.
