Planning Your Wedding

With dozens of wedding professionals here in the islands, you can do as much—or as little—planning as you wish, from working with a professional wedding planner, consulting a knowledgeable caterer for advice, or handling the arrangements yourself. Choose from a full range of services: planners and officiates, caterers, chefs and bakers who use island-grown ingredients, and florists who create beautiful bouquets from locally-grown flowers.

You’ll also find musicians who play everything from big band to blues, photographers who capture unforgettable moments, hair and makeup artists, and quality tent and chair rental companies. Everyone is ready to help make your special day effortless.
