Lei Exchange for Hawaii Theme Weddings
The lei exchange is a nice way to add the Hawaii tradition to your wedding. The lei exchange symbolizes the love exchanged by wedding couple. For the lei exchange ceremony the wedding couple exchange leis during the first few minutes of the ceremony. You can do it a few ways:

1) The couple starts off wearing each other's leis then presents it to the other during the ceremony.

2) Have flower girls carry the leis and present them to the wedding couple during the ceremony.

 

WEDDING CEREMONY

 

On behalf of (insert wedding couple's names) I would like to welcome you to this joyous celebration. The Hawaiian word for love is Aloha. Today we’ve come together to celebrate the special Aloha that exists between (insert wedding couple's names) and their desire to make their Aloha eternal through the commitment marriage.
In Hawaii the giving of a lei is an expression of Aloha. (Insert wedding couple's names) will now exchange leis to symbolize their deep Aloha for one another and their giving of themselves to one another.
(As the couple adorns each other in the leis...)
When two people promise with Aloha in their hearts to share the adventure of life, it is a beautiful moment that they, and all of us who are present today, will always remember.

 

(Insert wedding couple's names) you are entering into marriage because you want to share your lives with one another and experience the rest of your lives together as one. You are marrying because you know you will grow more in happiness and Aloha more fully as life-mates. You will belong entirely to each other, one in mind, one in heart, and in all things. No greater blessing of happiness can come to you than to have this devoted Aloha, which you now publicly avow. Keep this understanding of your marriage alive in the days ahead. May your Aloha continuously grow truer and more wonderful with each day you enjoy together.
