Ask any Hawaiian bride where she goes for local wedding resources and her answer will likely be The Wedding Cafe. Owned by a husband and wife team, Bryson and Tanna, The Wedding Cafe boutique provides brides-to-be a store full of vendor portfolios, from binders of wedding venues to videographers and photographers to hair and makeup and flowers. In addition to a directory full of resources, they also provide FREE, yes, I said it, FREE workshops that provided me with great wedding tips and introduced us to our favorite wedding photographer, Kris Labang. Oh, and did I mention the delicious spicy tuna caper sandwiches and pumpkin crunch?! After all, it really is a cafe.
Why am I such a big fan of this place? Because The Cafe really has been a great help in our wedding planning…so if any of you are interested in having a destination wedding in Hawaii, I’d check out the website. Also, if you’d like to get more tips and inspiration from local Hawaii brides, check out Tanna’s new book, Wedding Belles.
You can buy the book locally in Hawaii at Borders, Barnes and Nobles, and of course, The Wedding Cafe! It is also available through Watermark Publishing, Booklines Hawaii, and Amazon.com. I checked the book out myself and would recommend it to any bride who just started with their wedding plans. Happy Planning, Buds!
