Beach Wedding Permits


A DNLR State permit is required for all beach weddings including beaches fronting hotels, private estates, or other venues.

Permit applications require a liability insurance certificate requiring $1 million in liability coverage from wedding companies or individual vendors.

Permits are issued through the the State of Hawaii, Dept. of Land and Natural Resources.

permits have a (30) person maximum limit. If you have more, you will be solely responsible and legally liable for any and all actions against AHW in this regard.

A permit for City & County of Honolulu parks is required additionally if your ceremony is in a park and additional permit fees will be required.

If you reserve your date and find that you will be having more people than originally listed on your contract, please let us know.

If you show up on ceremony day with more, we'll have to get a new permit (on the spot) and a $25 administration fee plus the permit fee will be charged to you on your Final Service Invoice.
