Tahiti and her islands have been well known for years as being romantic destinations for lovers and honeymooners.
Deserted islands, seldomly frequented beaches, and the traditional Tahitian culture beckon to new lovers as exotic, picturesque and relaxing places to really get to know one another...
There aren't many distractions: Just the wonderfully soothing ocean and wind sounds and the beauty of the natural tropical scenery all around you.
Moonlight walks along the beaches,
warm waters perfect for swimming day or night, and romantic dinners in French restaurants are what romance is all about... and the Tahitian islands have it all.
The TAHITI SUN TRAVEL NETWORK gets many requests from newlyweds, soon to be married people, and people who want to find information about romantic ideas, traditional wedding ceremonies, renewing wedding vows, or unique Tahitian getaways specifically for lovers. This page is a good starting point for ideas, links, and information.
Honeymoon Packages & Romantic Vacations
Designed with lovers in mind, these Tahiti Legends packages are made
to win the hearts of incurable romantics.
Polynesian marriages can basically be divided into 3 categories:
Many people decide French Polynesia would be a wonderful
place to get married. IT IS, however, there are some basic things to know when planning a legally recognized wedding...
For starters, you should see what you're in for by going to our LEGAL FORMALITIES section and reading about the Polynesian laws and legal matters pertaining to the issue. After familiarizing yourself with these "rules", we recommend contacting the links on this page to help you more with the process. (see below)
There are 2 main things to understand about these marriages:
1) It is not easy to arrange a "legal marriage" for foreigners! It is possible, however, with a little groundwork and pre-planning. (It is for this reason that the "Traditional style Tahitian Weddings" are becoming the foreigners choice of ceremony. See info below.)
2) Unfortunately, the Tahiti Sun Travel Network can't really do much more for you when it comes to planning these Polynesian weddings other than supply the information and links on these pages.
Traditional "Tahitian" Weddings...
are the most popular form of "marriage" in French Polynesia and can be arranged through local specialists who make your
wedding one that you will never forget. These marriages are a pure Tahitian experience and highly saught after- quite unique only to these islands.
Realize (if it matters): THESE ARE NOT LEGALLY RECOGNIZED or BINDING MARRIAGES, (see info above), however arguably just as memorable, significant, and important!
Most consist of varying degrees of ceremonial hoo ha, with different trappings ranging from terrific food and catering services, canoe
rides, to full dress costumes, entertainment and more...
Renewing Your Wedding Vows
Tahiti and her islands also offer a very unique and romantic service that has developed over the years. Commonly refered to as "renewing your wedding vows", this is popular with people who have been together for years already, and are looking to "RE-spice", or "RE-new" the energy of their earlier years of marriage...
The reasons people do this are many and complex, and we won't even try and define them. (We're not marriage counselers...)
TSTN is happy for all lovers and people who do this and we have assembled a small list of talented, unique and licensed marriage renewal priests for you: We organize them according to the islands they perform the renewal ceremonies on.
