Appropriate Attire

Please arrive at Aloha Tower Marketplace dressed in your cap and IRONED gown. For attire under the gown, we recommend dark pants and dark shoes for men, with a white or light-colored collared shirt. We recommend a dress or dark trousers and comfortable shoes for women. For safety reasons, please do not wear casual sandals or slippers or extremely high heels. You will need both of your hands-frees during the ceremony; please do not bring purses, bags, or Go Pros. Leave valuables with a trusted friend or family member.
