All About The Wedding Café

The Wedding Café opened in 2001 as a wedding resource for Hawai'i's recently engaged. The Wedding Café offers free wedding advice, personalized planning recommendations and tips and tricks for savvy couples. Our resource center also houses photo albums, portfolios, brochures and price lists from some of Hawai'i's top wedding professionals.

In 2007, The Wedding Café moved from Manoa Marketplace to Ward Warehouse, doubling its space to house more wedding information and host weekly bridal workshops. In 2017, with a move to an even bigger, stand alone space called KOUWORK in the heart of Kaka'ako, The Wedding Café continues to cater to Hawaii's engaged couples to help them plan the wedding of their dreams! Make an appointment to stop by - we have oodles of information on wedding planning, savvy tips, and a friendly staff who is happy to guide you on your wedding planning journey.

Or, from the comfort of your home, browse through our website, jam packed with informative wedding vendor videos, profiles of Hawaii's top wedding professionals, a complete listing of articles on our Blog, tips and trends for local and destination brides, and buy tickets for our upcoming workshop series. The Wedding Café is located in the heart of Honolulu or online, right here at your diamond-flaunting fingertips.
