Hi’uwai Ceremony

The hi’uwai is an ocean cleansing. Its affect is a spiritual alignment of one’s mind, body and spirit by allowing the ocean waters to wash away all unwanted thoughts and feelings. The wedding couple will perform the cleansing together and the entire wedding party may participate. This is a Hawaiian tradition that will help prepare the couple for the wedding day. The hi’uwai tradition symbolizes the couple’s strength and confidence to begin their new life together.

Lei & Hula Performance

During the ceremony the bride and groom can present a lei to each other to symbolize the couples love and commitment to each other.(this can be done during the ceremony or during the reception)

Worldstar will arrange for a kumu hula to teach the bride and groom the lei presentation then they will teach the bride her hula. A simple hula is chosen for the bride to learn. The bride’s wedding party may perform with the bride
