There are several wedding-planning options to consider and compare when planning a destination wedding in Hawaii. At Parasol Events we recognize that each client’s needs and desires are unique. As a result, Parasol Events offers wedding and event services that are entirely customizable to meet the specific needs of our brides and grooms. Listed here are our most popular requests.

Please contact us by phone or email so we can help you choose the right level of service for your Hawaii wedding or event.

When securing the services of Parasol Events the client/couple will be asked to sign a contract. A retainer of 50% will be expected at the time of contract signing so that the project may get underway.

Whether purchasing Full Event/Wedding Package or hiring us for Wedding Day Direction through our “Day of” Consultation & Coordination package, it is essential that your Parasol Event representative remain informed when any changes or new decisions are made. If a special activity such as the lighting of a unity candle, a musical solo, or any other unique addition is incorporated in the event it is important that the wedding coordinator be apprised of the program revisions as soon as possible. This ensures the smooth flow of activity during the event.

Parasol Events is in the business of executing the desires of their clients and serving as their loyal advocate. The couple/client retains all responsibility for the decision-making related to the project. The wedding coordinator serves as a well-informed guide with valuable contacts and priceless experience.
