Aloha, friends! The grand opening of Aulani is right around the corner and I couldn't be more excited. I can't wait to share photos of our first Aulani couples with you, but in the meantime here are just a few of the Hawaiian wedding traditions brides planning a ceremony at Aulani may want to incorporate into their big day.
Floral- The traditional Hawaiian lei signifies love and respect. Like a wedding ring, the lei is an unbroken circle that represents eternal commitment and devotion to one another.
Attire- In traditional Hawaiian weddings, both the bride and groom wear white. For a truly authentic look, the groom can sport a brightly colored sash around his waist.
Music - The Hawaiian Wedding Song, Ke Kali Nei Au, is usually played during the ceremony. The most famous version of this melody was performed by Elvis Presley in the movie Blue Hawaii.
