    HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Weddings on Oahu held outside and supervised by event planning professionals can now have up to 100 people, the city announced Friday.

    The development is welcome news for the wedding industry, which has effectively been shut down for the last year. In a news release, the Oahu Wedding Association applauded the change.

    “This is a significant and incredibly important step to revitalizing our industry,” said association President Joseph Esser. “While our industry has a long road to recovery, we are beyond thankful to Mayor Blangiardi for his swift action to reopen weddings over the past few weeks.”

    The Oahu Wedding Association is asking Honolulu Mayor Rick Blangiardi to have weddings fall under the same guidelines as other commercial events under the City's Tier 3 of its reopening plan.

    Under the current Tier 3 phase, static events such as seminars and graduations are allowed. Interactive events, such as weddings and business conferences, are not.

    About 50 of its members - which include wedding vendors such as officiants, make-up artists, DJs and photographers - held a rally outside Honolulu Hale on Thursday.

    Keeping Hawai‘i Safe. Today and in the future.

    We are excited to welcome travelers to the Hawaiian Islands with a pre-travel test.

    Whether you are a returning resident or a visitor to the Hawaiian Islands, we want to ensure that all travelers remain safe and healthy. For this reason, travelers are strongly advised to take a pre-travel COVID-19 test from a trusted testing and travel partner PRIOR to the final leg of their trip to the State of Hawai‘i. Trans-Pacific travelers arriving WITHOUT a confirmed negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of departure are subject to a mandatory 10-day quarantine.

    All travelers must have a negative test result BEFORE beginning the final leg of their trip. Anyone without a negative test result PRIOR to departure must quarantine upon arrival.

    The negative test result must be uploaded onto Safe Travels prior to departure or printed out prior to departure and hard copy in hand when arriving in Hawai‘i.
