Here in Hawaii we have the tradition of presenting leis with Aloha. If you are thinking about including your children into your ceremony, we will have the minister perform a lei exchange for the bride & groom and then have them present a lei to the children. This represents uniting the children and parents together as an ‘Ohana’ or family.
Sometimes, the couple will have a special bracelet, ring or necklace to give the child in place of a lei. The lei or gift becomes a symbol of family unity and in recognition of the hope and joy made visible through the marriage.
