Hawaii wedding attire

We will be attending a wedding in Hawaii next week at the Sheraton Moana Surfrider. The weather seems too hot for us to be wearing a suit/jacket/tie and formal dress. I've read that Hawaii dress code is more casual. Can anyone enlighten me on what is proper and acceptable evening wedding attire for Hawaii?

Thanks in advance!

Generally aloha wear will be fine, for just about any occasion. Lightweight slacks or dres shorts with an aloha shirt whould do it for you.

mmmm, I wouldn't wear dress shorts unless all the guests were also tourists. Nice slacks and an aloha shirt for men, a nice light dress for women. Sundresses are also OK.

and regarding wedding attire- most likely no shorts at the Moana.

Slacks & nice aloha shirt (no, not the screaming loud one!) for men.

A flowery dress or sylish Muu muu for women with strappy heels. If you want to buy one, try Macys (at Ala MOana), Blue Ginger (at ward Warehouse) or Mamo (also at WW). Even Sears has some nice ones. Go for more fitted and less frou frou if you want to look more local.

Thanks for all the replies! Sounds like lightweight slacks and nice aloha-like shirt for him and a lightweight flowery dress for me. Perfect! Thanks again

Icuy...please come to the GTG on the 17th. If you wait until the 18th, it will be over for a couple of hours!

Tuesday May 17th! I'll be there no matter what I write!

I am just so excited by the idea of having PPC help us choose the best dim sum that I can't even think straight!
