Legal Requirements and Permits

Now, you might be wondering, “What are these permits, and why do I need one to get married in Hawaii?” Well, a permit is essentially a piece of paper from the government that grants you permission to get married in a certain location. This is crucial because permits play a significant role in preserving and protecting the land. When you acquire a permit, you’re required to adhere to the principles of “leave no trace.” This basically means that you’re promising to leave the location as you found it. Unfortunately, some people—often unintentionally—cause damage to greenery and wildlife, or leave behind remnants of their event, like flowers or confetti. Permits ensure everyone is aware of the rules of the location, and that the government is informed about when and where your elopement will take place. Permits can also provide some reassurances for you. Often, when you apply for a permit, the issuing office will ask for the time you’ll be at the location. This is to ensure that you’ll be the only couple eloping there that day! While you can’t block off any trails or prevent the public from entering, it’s comforting to know no other elopements will be happening at your chosen spot. So, how do you go about obtaining a permit? Depending on your preferred location, you’ll need different types of permits. For a beach elopement, you’ll need a wiki permit. If you’re hoping to get married in a state park, you’ll need a special use permit. It’s important to note that some locations on the islands do not permit elopements, so be sure to do your research and communicate with your vendors about your location! You can find out more about acquiring permits on the Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources’ website.
