Kauai Wedding on a Budget
The term “Destination Wedding” seems to carry with it images of white sand beaches, sunshine, and relaxing in the company of those you love most. What better place to make this fantasy come to life than Kauai? What could possibly be holding you back? Most brides-to-be will answer “the bill.” True destination weddings can carry large expenses. However, with these few tips, your Kauai wedding can be both enjoyable AND affordable.
First of all, beach it! If those you love are flying to an island for your wedding, why would you want to celebrate anywhere but on a sandy beach? Beach weddings are classy, simple, stunning…and free. Let Mother Nature save you money while providing you the optimal backdrop and soundtrack for your special day.
Second, buy local flowers for your bouquet and those of your bridesmaids. Flower arrangements increase in price depending on if the flowers need to be imported. You can save a lot of money on flowers if you choose from your florist’s selection of seasonal flowers native to Kauai. Once again, using resources provided by the island will add a true Kauai experience to your event while giving your pocket book some relief.
Last of all, choose proper accommodations for your loved ones. Vacation rentals like the Villas at Poipu Kai offer both convenience and comfort without breaking the bank. The Villas are ideal for large groups and provide amenities such as a pool, spa, exercise room, and onsite wedding assistant. Not to mention, the resort’s convenient location – walking distance to two world class beaches. The resort’s greatest asset? Its ability to accommodate for large groups with ease. Each villa contains 3-5 bedrooms, a common area, a washer/dryer, and a large, fully stocked kitchen. If you want to save some money on food, eat breakfast and lunch at the villa; or make dinner an event by buying groceries at the local market and firing up the barbeque for the entire family. Your guests will be impressed with the luxurious suite and you will be happy to have saved a lot of money.
Don’t let the cost of a destination wedding be a deterrent. In addition to the ideas listed above, there are countless ways to save money while having a beautiful, island wedding you will never forget.
