5 Great Reasons to Have a Hotel Wedding

By Heartfelt Weddings at Cordis, Auckland and

Planning for your wedding day and feeling a little bit overwhelmed by the sheer volume of tasks involved? A hotel wedding at The Langham Auckland is the perfect way to ensure that your wedding is the stress-fee, fairytale day you deserve! There are some great benefits to choosing a hotel wedding – it not only gives you access to trusted professionals whose skills have been tried and tested, it takes all the hard work out of the equation, leaving you free to enjoy some of the fun things like finding that perfect wedding dress.


Here are five benefits you won't want to miss out on!

1.       One phone call takes care of it all

Most hotels have the advantage of offering dedicated events and wedding executives. No need to search on google or spend hours looking through bridal magazines when with a single phone call, you can get all the help you need from a specialist who has the best suppliers in the business right at their fingertips. You’ll be put in touch with all the key vendors/suppliers including theming and decoration stylists, florists, photographers, pastry chefs and cake makers, bands, DJs and entertainment, lighting and sound, and if you prefer, the hotel can speak to them directly on your behalf.

2.       Stress-free Planning every step of the way

Your hotel wedding executive is there every step of the way to ensure that every detail runs perfectly to plan. No need to worry about what to do next – your wedding executive will provide you with a list of questions and details for you to think about for your big day, and when you need to think about them. This should cover every little detail from before the first guest arrives until the last guest leaves! They will often undertake to liaise with your suppliers to coordinate the set up times and any equipment required, and to put together a recommended agenda for you.

3.       A bespoke menu tailored to your taste

You want your wedding cake and menu to be just perfect and here, hotels often have the advantage of expert chefs and pastry chefs to help you plan the perfect bespoke experience. Many hotels offer complimentary menu tasting for plated dinners, so you’ll have the opportunity to see the table setting, try your selected dishes, and ensure that everything is completely to your taste.

4.       Exceptional Venues & Facilities

Most larger hotels are dealing regularly with groups and you’ll find they can offer a range of flexible venues and facilities, including rooms for hen parties, cocktail lounges, space for your dance-floor, expert lighting and sound facilities, and specialised banquet and stewarding staff who can deliver smooth service from start to finish.

5.       Accommodation on site

This makes life easy for everyone concerned! Many hotels offer special wedding packages that include accommodation on your wedding night, as well as add-ons like breakfast, bubbles and valet parking that add a welcome touch of luxury. Some hotels can even offer special accommodation rates for guests who are arriving from out of town, so don’t be afraid to ask about your options.
