But remember, for any person to lawfully marry in the State of Hawaii, a license for that purpose must be obtained from an authorized agent.  Once the license has been issued, there is no waiting period before the marriage can take place. American Express Vacations makes it a point to remind their clients that marriage licenses and marriage certificates are different documents. The marriage license permits a marriage to take place. The marriage certificate indicates that a legal marriage has been performed.


The marriage certificate is prepared and filed by your licensed marriage officiant or performer with the Department of Health. A newly married couple receives one (1) certified copy of the marriage certificate at no extra charge, upon payment of the marriage license fee, which will be sent to the couple by mail (60-120 days) after the marriage has been performed. If a marriage certificate is needed sooner than this, you can apply for one or more additional certified copies.

With all the small details, it’s important to use American Express Travel to arrange the perfect luxury Hawaii destination wedding for you and the one you love.  By organizing all the details to go through one agency, you can get the added benefit of group rates, special honeymoon amenities and you and your party are the first to receive complimentary upgrades.
