Wedding Belles, Ideas and Inspiration from Island Brides, shares the story of dozens of unique Hawaiian weddings. And while there is plenty of sunset beach photography, leis, and island traditions, Wedding Bells is a guidebook for the wedding of your dreams- even for couples on the mainland. It’s filled with practical tips for modern couples, from those who want to have a destination wedding in Hawaii, to those who have just always been drawn to the beautiful tradition of exchanging leis.

The book is written with stories from many different, personal, and heatfelt weddings. The most diverse types of couples all can find something in common with the romance of Hawaii. I loved reading about all the creative proposals and dreamy surprises. One featured bride turned the tables on her husband by surprising him with an R2D2 robot bride! How cool is that?

I also loved finding a bride in the book with hot pink hair! Kanoe put together an amazing wedding with the intention of having it be “funky meets glam”. I think she nailed, it, right?

Her wedding appears throughout the book, and she provides not only great style inspiration, but also shares heartfelt advice on making sure that your day represents you, not just your parents. Oh, and her cactus girl centerpieces are awesome too!

  1. I’m currently planning a wedding and love any new forms of inspiration and ideas from other weddings and destinations. My fiance is obsessed with Star Wars, so the R2D2 surprise definitely sparked a flare of interest in the ideas, stories, advice, and inspirations this book has to offer! Thanks for the opportunity :)

  2. I’m in the planning stage for my wedding and this book looks like exactly what I need. We’re looking for a outdoor ceremony idea that we will be in love with and haven’t found the right one…maybe it will be in that book. Thanks :) Happy 4th weekend everyone!

  3. The book is what my future sister in-law is looking for to follow -and create the wedding of- her dreams. I would love to give it to her!

  4. I would love to look through this book for ideas on how to create a unique and creative wedding with personal touches and pizazz.

  5. Setting up a destination wedding planning service, this would be a great resource! I would give a limb to win (but old prefer if you just gave me the book!)

  6. My sweet little sister has a destination wedding business on a different tropical island (Cayman!) I’d love to surprise her with this book!

  7. I’m a destination bride who’s totally stumped – the only things I know for sure about our wedding is that it will be tropical and unusual–there will definitely be different colored hair and comic geek chic! I’d LOVE an inspiration book that I can relate to, rather than the cookie-cutter (or should I say white fondant) weddings I’m surrounded by…
