The Hawaiian holoku is a traditional Hawaiian wedding dress dating back to the 1820's. It is still seen in many Hawaii weddings and formal events, including the annual Holoku Ball. A beautiful throwback to this incredible gown.
In a Hawaiian wedding, a holoku is part of the heritage and worn with grace and style. They are traditionally high waisted, loose fitting, with long sleeves and a high neck, very conservative. Today you will see many beautiful adaptations of this dress.
Many wedding dresses stay with the long train and high or no waistline. It is common to see short sleeves and sleeveless versions today. They still are commonly seen in comfortable fabrics which are perfect for a wedding dress: lace, cotton and eyelet. These are equally beautiful in a garden, church or beach.
