The gracious beauty of the Hawaiian Islands extends from its sunsets and beaches to the friendly people who live there. Hawaiian culture is also an excellent theme for an island wedding. If you are traveling to Maui, Kauai, or any of the Hawaiian Islands for your wedding, consider wearing an Hawaiian Island wedding dress.
An Hawaiian Island wedding dress is a white or off-white dress with simple lines, often with a halter or spaghetti-strap bodice. Cotton is the fabric of choice in the islands, as it is light-weight and reflects the sun.
Accessories for an Hawaiian Island wedding dress include traditional flower leis, made of orchids, gardenias, or hibiscus flowers. For a lei that you can take home as a keepsake, consider one of the Hawaiian leis made from small shells or opt for a silk flower lei. Many of them look like real flowers.
Wear simple sandals or "barefoot sandals" (pearls, shells, or jewels that cover the tops of your feet) with your Hawaii Island wedding dress. Heels are out of place for a beach wedding.
Shop for your Hawaiian Island wedding dress and accessories online, from such retailers as Hawaiian Wedding Shop.com, or contact the boutique at the resort where you'll be staying. It's likely that they can order the perfect outfit for your big day.
