Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Can I tailor a package just for me?  Absolutely.  Our advertised packages are just a starting point.  In the past we have been able to accommodate all requests. No idea is too difficult, and no task unattainable for us. We can duplicate any idea that you have.
  2. Do you have bilingual vendors?  Yes. All of our vendors speak English and Japanese.
  3. Can I bring in special decorations?  Yes, we will set up whatever decor you want exactly how you want it for no extra fee.
  4. Can I bring in my own minister?  Yes that is ok.  However, we have many excellent officiants:  Hawaiian, Japanese bilingual, religious, and non-denominational.
  5. Would you coordinate a wedding at a venue that is not advertised on your website?  Yes, we have access to any advertised venue in Hawaii.
  6. What about transportation?  We can provide any size vehicle for your wedding party and guests at reasonable prices.  We have been performing weddings for over 14 years and our knowledge of the demands of transporting guests around Waikiki and Oahu is extensive.
  7. Can I bring in my own photographer, videographer and make-up artists?  Unfortunately we do not allow outside vendors. When you choose one of our packages, we diligently coordinate our vendors to provide the best experience for you with regards to timeliness and working together.  When a client brings in an outside vendor, that vendor is not obligated to work under our specifications. Delays and misunderstandings can occur.
  8. What if the weather is bad?  We always have a back-up plan in case of rain or imminent weather. We do not charge for any rain check such as for the photo tour.
  9. What is your cancellation policy?   It depends on how far along the planning has gone. If some unforseen circumstances happen, we can postpone the wedding or make a full refund.  We are very flexible.  Every situation is different.
  10. What is the most common comment from your past brides?  “I am so glad that I found Lanikai Wedding.  You provided a service exactly what we wanted. You made our dream wedding come true.”
