I would admittedly be extremely pissed if I was the owner and I rented out the house to 4 people and then drove by and saw tents, tables, etc. going up for a wedding of 50 people. The damage to the grass, the extra people going through and dirtying up the house, etc..
Last thing you want to do is get there and then have the owner stop it so I'd suggest you make it extremely clear from the person you rent from what your intent is.

Me and the wifey got married in Oahu. We stayed at Waikiki with the family for a couple of days until the wedding and then went to the North Shore and stayed at Turtle Bay Resort for a couple of days.
Waikikiki is like a small version of New York close to a beach. Very crowded, very touristy.
The north shore was completely different. Very nice, relaxed, and secluded.
We found an all inclusive wedding company that did everything for us. The planner came to the wife's hotel room before the ceremony for makeup. Wedding on the beach with minister, Hawaiian uke singer, dove release, toast. They then took us to a public park in a limo for pictures (pictures turned out great). All in all it was excellent stress free ceremony.

|Emrys||Makaha valley on the western side of Oahu is far less touristy, and you get sunsets over the water|

site for beachfront vacation home rentals in oahu

A couple suggestions for you since I just got back from Oahu and Maui. Oahu was considerably more expensive than Maui. In fact I was quite surprised just how touristy it was. Ask anyone that's been to Oahu/Honolulu and they will tell you the same thing. We stayed at the Marriott right next to Diamond Head at the end of the strip. Nice but a lot too crowded for us.
If I had to pull off a wedding I would do it in Maui without a doubt. Choose the Ka'anapali Beach side near Lahaina and it would be beautiful. If your thought is flights would be cheaper, many direct flights go straight into Maui so you may want to look into that.
I used a combination of points and Costco Travel (Which I highly recommend) for trips to Hawaii. Not sure if they do homes but it was my first time using them as a travel agency and I believe I saved quite a bit!

Beachfront rental in Oahu for wedding
Hello fellow slickdealers
My fiance and I are getting married in the next year or two, we have settled on doing it in hawaii and have decided on having the wedding in oahu( we figured flights to oahu would be cheapest for family and friends).
We are going to be renting a beachfront home and having the wedding either on the lawn or preferably on the beach (whichever looks best).
Just putting a feeler out their for any wisdom, recommedations on rental companies to work with or not to work with. Any leads on rental houses that are great for the money. You know, the kinda stuff a slickdealer would want to know about
Basically we are at our infancy stage of planning and saving money (we will be paying for this ourselves) with a max budget of 10,000$ and we are expecting around 20 people for the wedding. But they are not staying at the house with us, probably only both sets of parents and my brother will be staying at the rental. So proximity to honolulu might be nice for the others that will be getting hotels or whatever...
The max budget for the house will be around 1,000 per night ( we figured that will be the main expense). Not so worried about things like food or photography, anything like that as we will deal with that when the wedding becomes nearer.
Also, what is the best time of the year to pull this off with a tight budget?
Any recommendations, wisdom, knowledge would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much for any responses...
