A Hawaiian wedding should always include leis for the bride and groom for that traditional Hawaii ceremony. We start most ceremonies with an exchange of leis with each presenting a lei to each other with a hug and kiss.
The lei is the Hawaiian symbol of love and aloha. The custom of giving and receiving leis at weddings began in the days of old Hawaii. During the ceremony the kahuna pule (religious man) bound the hands of the bride and groom with maile leis as a symbol of the couple's commitment to each other.
Today, the fragrant maile lei entwined with pikake (white jasmine) and ilima is usually worn by the groom. The bride sometimes wears a haku headband instead of a traditional headpiece. Triple strands of delicate Pikake are also appropriate for the mother of the bride and groom.
These are just some examples. Some flowers are seasonal and certain ones have an extra cost. Please call Lisa Makaneole 808-651-8252 to get pricing for your wedding.
