Get on the Calendar


Have an idea in your head, a vision, a tummy turning excitement about getting married in Hawaii but have absolutely no idea where to start. You want something beautiful, different, unique, intimate, and special but you have a tight budget and a big dream.
You find this website and get in touch. 

the planning experience

step by step, here's what to expect

Each package is a little different but generally there is a non-refundable deposit paid upfront to hold your date and secure our services.  If you are booking a private venue wedding that deposit is a little larger as it goes directly towards the payment we make to reserve the venue for you.  The deposit goes towards the total package cost and the remainder of the fees are split into 2-3 payments between now and your wedding day.  Your payment plan is outlined in your contract and we accept both check and credit cards. 

how does the payment for your services work? 

Absolutely! If you have a friend or family member to officiate and don't need to use our officiant that is totally fine.  We will send you info. on what your officiant will need to do before the wedding (Hawaii guidelines) and can help him or her as needed.  The officiant will also welcome guests, guide you through the ceremony, and help to direct and organize the flow of the day - but if you bring your own we can assist with this part for you.  There is no discount off the pkg. price if you decide to bring your own officiant.

we have our own officiant, is that ok?

Yes! We have an incredible florist who does the most amazing bouquets and wedding flowers.  We will help you to figure out exactly what wedding flowers you'll need to pull off the look or wedding vibe you're going for, then we'll reach out to our florist to get a quote.  You decide if the price is right for you and we can adjust as necessary.  On the wedding day we pick up, drop off and install all wedding florals for you. 

can we add a bouquet and additional flowers?

Every month in Hawaii is beautiful, with temperatures in the low 80's and tropical light sea breezes to keep cool.  It isn't usually very humid or rainy here but we do have the occasional rain storm that passes through.  The more rainy months are December - March, but 90% of the time these months are sunny.  Usually light rains will pass within 10 minutes and planning around rainy months really isn't necessary.

what is the best month to get married in hawaii?

Yes, absolutely.  We help you to arrange and book all of this.  We'll help you to sort out the timing of everything will be and will outline the details you need to be aware of before reaching out to our vendors on your behalf to get you quotes. We get discounted rates and we'll pass that savings directly to you.  We will set everything up for you so that it's super easy and you get the best possible pricing.  We also have recently added in drone options for videography which can be so much fun! Just let us know if you want to add these things in when we get to this part of planning. 


Unfortunately no, right now we are focused in on couples who are looking for smaller more intimate weddings that include a custom ceremony and a more relaxed dinner reception (at a nice restaurant or luau instead of renting a private venue). 

Our weddings offer couples a chance to save 2/3 of the wedding cost (or $10-$30k) by opting not to do a full custom reception, but they're not for everyone.  If a private dinner reception with speeches, a bouquet and garter toss, formal cake cutting and custom dinner is your wedding vision, we are probably not the best fit for you. 

we want to have a larger wedding and a full reception can you help?

We don't help you to book hotels or travel but will give you custom advice and suggestions on the best places to stay (for different budgets and experiences), ideas on things to do while in Hawaii (hiking, places to eat, things to do), and suggestions on travel deals, upon request. 

When you book with us you'll get a personal planner available to you 24/7 who can answer any wedding or Hawaii related questions you may have. 

Do you help with travel or hotel bookings?

All of our packages are set up to include everything you need for a beautiful, intimate Hawaii wedding ceremony. So you can start there to get an idea of budget, this price goes up if you decide to add on things like hair and makeup, videography, custom florals, etc.  We give you very detailed options throughout the planning process and get you discounted rates with vendors (florists, videographers, etc.).  You make the final decisions on what you want to add-on.  If you want a customized budget breakdown before booking we're happy to do that too, just let us know your vision and request a sample custom budget when you fill out our contact form.

I would 100% recommended Nicole and Best day ever, she did such an amazing job organising our Hawaii beach wedding. She was always one step ahead with the organisation and was very prompt in responding to our emails. On the day everything was perfect, all of the vendors ie hair/makeup, photography, officiant, florist right down to the suggestion for our wedding dinner, that she organised and suggested we’re just simply amazing, I can’t thank Nicole and her team at Best day ever enough for all the hard work, we flew in to Hawaii from Australia I thought it would be stressful to organise a overseas wedding but I had absolutely no stress at all, all thanks to Nicole! Thank you! Dannielle + Kris"

"Nicole from Best Day Ever did such an amazing job helping us to plan our destination wedding. Being from Australia, planning a destination wedding in Hawaii seemed a little daunting, however Nicole was so responsive to emails and queries and always put my mind at ease. Vendor selection was so easy with Nicole and we were so excited to have the dream team of vendors for our big day. We will always remember our wedding day as one of our best days ever! Highly recommend Nicole and her team for any wedding planning in Hawaii"
— Stephanie K., bride, Australia

"We will always remember our wedding day as one of our best days ever!"

"My wife and I were nervous about planning a wedding in Hawaii remotely from Canada, but Nicole took care of everything! We talked about our vision for the day and at each step in the process, we were given their recommendations. If we had preferences besides what they had suggested they were more than open to that. If we had concerns with their suggestions, they were open to that discussion as well. But as it turns out, all of their suggestions were spot on! From the location and the florals to the officiant and music... everything was perfect! We were on vacation in Hawaii for 2 weeks and our wedding day was the LEAST stressful day of our holiday - I think that says it all. If you’re looking to plan a destination wedding in Hawaii, please consider getting a Hawaii wedding planner and look no further than Best Day Ever."
— Jeff Meers, groom - Canada

"Working with Best Day Ever was the reason we had the wedding of our dreams.."

My destination wedding's a year away and I don't even know where to start! Eek! I live in Ireland and i'm getting married in Hawaii. We absolutely HAVE to get a wedding planner. Booking someone over the internet who you've never met before to plan THE biggest day of your life is a daunting task. From the word go I was instantly reassured and de-stressed. They were extremely professional, prompt and organised about getting in touch at the right time about all the important information. Our wedding was exactly what we wanted! It was perfect! All of our guests said it was one of the nicest wedding's they'd ever been to. All the vendors that were suggested were perfect. I would recommend anyone getting married on Oahu to use Best Day Ever. You will truly have the BEST DAY EVER!! Thank you again Nicole and Alyssa! You made our wedding dreams come true!"
