    Default Eloping in Hawaii?

    DP and I have been engaged since 2006 and are currently planning our first overseas holiday ever. We are travelling to Disney world in Orlando. We are wanting to elope during/ before this time but aren't sure if we should risk it in a place we have never been (I am a bit of a control freak). Part of me wants these beautiful photos (in our wedding attire), playing with our kids on the beach in Hawaii and enjoying our first ever overseas trip, but part of me is scared of not liking the location or environment.

    I love hawaii - I say do it! It does look exactly like it does on the net and the brilliant thing about Americans is they do give you great service so it would be easy to organise over the net

    Look up Turtle Bay Resort - it's on the north shore- it was the resort they filmed. "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" ( about 30 mins drive from Waikiki which is too busy for a wedding) that would be a perfect place for a wedding!

    We eloped in Hawaii in 2007. Got married on Lanikai beach and it was stunning. Look up images of it.
