Hawaiian Luau: The Costco Way!

One of the most common questions I get from couples is, “Steve, which luau do locals go too?”   There are three primary luaus on Oahu: The Polynesian Cultural Centers, Paradise Cove, and Germain’s Luau; and most locals don’t go to any of them.   They either make their own […]

Hawaii Wedding Tips You’re Getting Married in Hawaii, Now Who Pays For Everything?

You’re Getting Married in Hawaii, Now Who Pays For Everything?

I’ll just come out and say it.  I don’t care what the circumstance is, money can make or break a friendship.  It can even sever ties between close family members.  I didn’t have to say it – it’s common knowledge, right?  But lately, in this hipster world, it’s not.   Mo […]

Steven Says: Oxford, Mississippi - home to the nicest people in the world.

BACK FROM VACATION! Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, Missouri, California!

Look at my round face!  Fat from all that BBQ! Two weeks, five States, two college football games, BBQ ribs, and 17 pounds later – Now that’s a vacation! I’m not sure when is the last time I took a vacation.  You know this probably better than I do, but […]

Your Hawaii Wedding, Volcanoes, Lava, and Why There’s No Need to Panic

I guess you’ve heard in the news we have an active volcano in Hawaii and residents are running for their lives!  Well, that’s partially true, but most of it is just sensationalism brought to you by the mainstream media. The raw full truth is that an active rift zone opened […]

Is the city of Honolulu one of the Largest Modern Cities in America?  Possibly…

Is the city of Honolulu one of the Largest Modern Cities in America? Possibly…

I bet you’re scratching your head, thinking, that I must be some type of nut for laying out such a bold claim.  But hold your horses, maybe I have a point.  And maybe, I have some statistics to back it up – just maybe. If you google “size of Honolulu” […]

The Hawaii Destination Wedding Package Scam: Buyer Beware!

The Hawaii Destination Wedding Package Scam: Buyer Beware!

I’ve been getting a lot of wedding inquiries regarding all-inclusive Hawaii destination wedding packages.  These curious and potential customers are shopping for a package that includes everything.  A package that covers not only their wedding, but their air, hotel, food, rental car, entertainment, and here’s the kicker – unlimited drinks.  […]

It’s 2018 and My Oahu Wedding Package Prices are Not Changing

It’s 2018 and My Oahu Wedding Package Prices are Not Changing

Every year, companies always find an excuse to raise prices.  I remember in high school, every year, the price of a soda would go up by 5 cents.   By the time I graduated, soda was 20 cents more!  Hey for someone with only a summer family job, that was a […]

Nuclear Bombs, Weddings, and Hawaii

Nuclear Bombs, Weddings, and Hawaii

The State of Hawaii is a rather small State but we sure do make a big splash!  I obviously have a bias, but we’re in the headlines – a lot.   Did you hear that Jumanji was shot in Hawaii and it outperformed The Last Jedi!   And oh, that ethernet, you […]

Recommendations and Advice: Luau’s and your Wedding in Hawaii

I would say that close to all of my clients, at one point or another, attend a Hawaiian luau.   A “luau, ” if you’re wondering, is just a Hawaiian themed party.  That party doesn’t have to be in Hawaii as well.  It could be in Afghanistan, it just has to […]

Do You Need a Wedding Planner if You’re Eloping or Having a Small Wedding in Hawaii?

Do You Need a Wedding Planner if You’re Eloping or Having a Small Wedding in Hawaii?

I’m a wedding planner and I’ll be quite honest, this job is pretty much overrated.  Wedding planning, for the most part, is glorified waitering.   You order off the menu, the waiter brings what you want efficiently, end of story.    For something so simple you would think it would be […]

HawaiI Weddings got you going insane?

Wedding Day Jitters? Feeling a Bit Nervous? Maybe it’s legtimate, maybe it’s not…

I’ll steal a line from our politicians, but “Let Me Be Clear,” that feeling a bit nervous on your wedding day is 100% completely natural.   The real question is if it should be of any concern. There are two main reasons why couples feel a bit jittery on and before […]
