4. The Samoan Experience Wedding Package – Coconuts Beach Club Resort & Spa

Should you want to go all out on a Samoan-style wedding, turn to Coconuts Beach Club Resort & Spa. Immerse yourself in Fa’a Samoa where the bride and groom will be adopted by two Samoan families and dressed in traditional attire, including a tailored lavalava (sarong) specially sewn for the groom. After the blowing of the conch shell, both bride and groom will be escorted to the melodies of Samoan singing where then each family chief will make a speech. A local string band will play throughout the ceremony, then it’s onto the reception with gifts exchanged between the families, a fiafia performance, dinner, a wedding cake and a bottle of sparkling wine.

But, if that all sounds a bit much, Coconuts also offers a range of low-key wedding packages, which all notably include a photographer and videographer.

5. Adventure Seekers Wedding Package – Le Vasa Resort

The beauty of Le Vasa Resort‘s wedding packages is that there is scope to create your own perfect day. If you need some inspiration, however, try the “Adventure Seekers” wedding package which takes the lucky couple to a private island with boat transfers included. The island can be decorated with flame torches, a Samoan fine mat and the sound of traditional Samoan music. There are floral arrangements for the bride and groom, and the bride will also be escorted by a traditionally dressed warrior. Other generous inclusions are a one-tier wedding cake, as well as sparkling wine for the bridal toast.
