Beach Wedding Permits


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

DLNR permit applications require a liability insurance certificate requiring $1 million in liability coverage and must also meet other stringent specific language requirements. Not all insurance companies can fulfill these requirements.

Permits are issued through the the State of Hawaii, Dept. of Land and Natural Resources and/or City & County of Honolulu for C&C parks.

A State of Hawaii, Dept. of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) beach wedding permit for up to (10) participants is included the cost of all of our packages as listed.

City & County of Honolulu for C&C parks are not included in our package costs and can be added where required and if available.

Additional participants for the DLNR permit can be added using our Prices & Planning Order Form.

beach wedding permits are issued for a (30) person maximum limit. With that said, we can still do your wedding understanding that, you are solely responsible and legally liable for any and all actions against AHW in this regard.

FYI: The DLNR tells us that, couples and officiates/ministers cannot apply for permits because of the insurance language requirement. We believe that this administrative restriction is contrary to the intent of the law. We suggest you make a complaint to the Governor and the Insurance Commissioner!
