Hawaii has always been a favorite for destination weddings, but like a lot of things those got put on hold in 2020. However, with Honolulu entering Tier 3, weddings have reopened in Oahu!
The entire wedding industry, whether you’re new to Hawaii or a local, has effectively been shut down for the last year. From photographers to florists to wedding shuttles, we’ve all been affected by these wedding restrictions.
The new guidelines in Honolulu allow for up to 100 people to attend a wedding, and this goes into effect immediately. If you’ve been putting off planning a wedding in Oahu, now is the time to start planning!
While weddings are opening up, there are still a number of restrictions to keep in mind:
- A maximum of 100 people are able to attend events (this includes staff)
- Must be an outdoor venue
- Guests must have temperature checks
- Everyone must still follow all face covering requirements
- All food and beverage must comply with restaurant/bar requirements
- Guests must sign-in
- Dancing will be allowed, but all dancers should wear face coverings with only two dancers allowed per 36 square feet of space.
As long as we work together, follow the rules, and continue to recover, we should expect the restrictions to ease even more over time.
As you book wedding venues and vendors be sure to check that they follow all COVID-19 requirements. Companies like SpeediShuttle follow all COVID-19 requirements for transportation in Hawaii including masks, vehicle sanitizing, and employee screenings. A perfect service for transporting multiple wedding guests. Or local rideshare services like holoholo are a great alternative for wedding transportation.
