WE ARE BACK & BETTER THAN EVER!

We were gone for a little bit, but now we are BACK! These last 11 months have been a time of change and transformation for us personally (we welcomed a baby boy in August 2013) and professionally. We got caught up in the day-to-day routine and let our attention to Hawaii Wedding Match slip a bit…and for that we apologize! But now we are back with fresh ideas and want to get back to the task at hand and that is making Hawaii Wedding Match a premiere website for couples to use when planning a wedding in Hawaii!

We welcome any ideas you may have for the Hawaii Wedding Match platform and love feedback! For now we will keep this post short and sweet but keep your eye out for a new wedding post to debut shortly. XO

Wedding Toast Wisdom

Stuck on what to say in your wedding toast? Here are some Go-To Goodies!

Toasting the happy couple on their wedding day can be a stressful experience. So if you’re stuck and don’t know what to say, here are some classic lines to use in your speech or to simply generate some inspiration:

  • May you both live as long as you want, and never want as long as you live;
  • Happy marriages begin when we marry the one we love, and they blossom when we love the one we married;
  • My greatest wish for the two of you is that through the years your love for each other will so deepen and grow, that years from now you will look back on this day, your wedding day, as the day you loved each other the least;
  • May the roof above you never fall in, and may you both never fall out;
  • Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction;
  • A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person;
  • May the best day of your past be the worst day of your future.

Good luck to all you nervous “toasters” and Congratulations to all you happy “toastees”
XO

Planning a wedding is tough work and there is no need to make it any more frustrating than it inherently is already. Hawaii Wedding Match takes the benefits of social media and applies these benefits to your wedding vendor search. We will help match you with local wedding vendors that meet your location, budget and style requirements through our unique “Get Matched” function. You no longer need to find lists of wedding vendors and call each one, now you can save time and energy by contacting only the vendors that meet your specific wedding criteria and budget.

The Key To A Long & Happy Marriage

We recently came across an article on the Huffington Post about a couple that has been together for 73 years and they give credit to their morning routine of eating pancakes together…yes pancakes, that delicious breakfast treat! (Article: Robert and Doris Moody, Couple Married 73 Years, Eat Pancakes Every Day) This got us thinking, every couple is completely unique and has their own way of keeping their marriage strong and happy, What works best for you?

With a little research, we have found some common “keys to happiness” among long-term married couples:

  • Saying “please” and “thank you”, even for the smallest things;
  • Enjoy one another’s company and make it a priority to spend time together; 
  • Avoid financial stress by living within your means as a family;
  • Be kind;
  • Don’t sweat the small stuff;
  • Be able to forgive and let things go;
  • Always be respectful;
  • Laugh often!

What would you add to this list?

Make your Dad Feel Special at your Wedding

In honor of Father’s Day we thought it would be fun to share some ways in which you can make your father feel loved and included on your big day.

Even though the Father of the bride may be helping to pay for the actual tab, he is usually not as involved in the plans. Just because he doesn’t have an opinion on your color palate or whether you use satin or organza does not mean that he does not care. In fact, seeing his little girl get married may be almost as big of a deal for him as it is for you.

Interesting Wedding Tidbits – Did You Know That…

We love sharing interesting and useful wedding information with our community. So did you know…

  • The tradition of a wedding cake comes from ancient Rome, where revelers broke a loaf of bread over a bride’s head for fertility’s sake.
  • The custom of tiered cakes emerged from a game where the bride and groom attempted to kiss over an ever-higher cake without knocking it over.
  • In many cultures around the world — including Celtic, Hindu and Egyptian weddings — the hands of a bride and groom are literally tied together to demonstrate the couple’s commitment to each other and their new bond as a married couple (giving us the popular phrase “tying the knot”).
  • On average, 7,000 couples marry each day in the United States.
  •  Fifteen percent of wedding receptions are outdoors.
