THE WEEK­END WED­DING BASH

Skip the tra­di­tional “I do”, dine and dance by ex­tend­ing your big day to a big week­end. The ex­perts at Hil­ton Lake Taupo tell us how you can nail it with ease.

Your wed­ding may be one of the only times all your loved ones are gath­ered in the same place at the same time – so why not make the most of it?

Well versed in cre­at­ing un­for­get­table wed­ding week­ends, we asked Hil­ton Lake Taupo ( lake­taupo. hil­ton.com) to share their top tips for pulling off a multi- day cel­e­bra­tion to re­mem­ber.

WHAT MAKES THE IDEAL WED­DING WEEK­END VENUE?

Look for a venue that con­tains bril­liant in­door and out­door cer­e­mony and re­cep­tion op­tions as well as ac­com­mo­da­tion. On­site ac­tiv­i­ties (or at­trac­tions in close prox­im­ity to your venue) are also a must. For in­stance, at Hil­ton Lake Taupo, there’s a ten­nis court, swim­ming pool, sauna and on­site restau­rant – the per­fect base for you and your guests.

WHAT CAN COU­PLES DO TO MAKE GUESTS FEEL EX­TRA WEL­COME?

Or­gan­is­ing group ac­tiv­i­ties, es­pe­cially if there are a lot of peo­ple who have never met be­fore, is a won­der­ful way to make guests feel to­tally at ease around one an­other lead­ing up to the big day.

Con­sider plac­ing wel­come packs in their rooms, or ar­rang­ing air­port trans­fers so they don’t have to worry about it.

Again, a ho­tel with ex­pe­ri­ence in this area can truly help. At Hil­ton Lake Taupo, we of­fer dis­counts on ac­com­mo­da­tion to all wed­ding guests, and can help you or­gan­ise any­thing from a cocktail night prior to the wed­ding to brunch the fol­low­ing day, or of­fer your guests in­house mas­sages or beauty treat­ments. We want to make the ex­pe­ri­ence as seam­less as pos­si­ble.
