Frequently Asked Questions

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.

Do you have bilingual vendors? 

Yes. All of our vendors speak English and Japanese.

Can I bring in special decorations? 

Yes, we will set up whatever decor you want exactly how you want it for no extra fee.

Can I bring in my own minister?

Yes that is ok.  However, we have many excellent officiants:  Hawaiian, Japanese bilingual, religious, and non-denominational.

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.

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. We provide a shuttle from Waikiki to Lanikai, cost dependent on size of party.
We also can provide a 15 person van to shuttle from the country club to the beach, $250.

Can I bring in my own photographer, videographer and make-up artists?

We do not recommend using vendors that we aren't familiar with. 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.

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.

What is your cancellation policy? 

NO CANCELLATION FEES !! Here is the one area where Lanikai Wedding really stands out. We do not require any deposits. In fact, we can plan a last minute wedding or a long planned wedding with no financial repercussions. This provides for stress free planning especially in light of todays stressful environment.

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.”
