What do you mean you haven’t considered a hotel wedding yet! Allow Alana Martin from InterContinental Wellington to enlighten you on the many reasons to give the idea a thumbs up.
Going global? Think reliability.
As with any big purchase, there’s a sense of comfort that comes with placing your trust in a global brand. Translated to the context of hotels, this comes in the form of five-star service, and a guarantee of comfort and excellence associated with top accommodation.
Experience catering for guests from all cultures and contexts means a hotel has enormous experience creating special menus for dietary and religious purposes, and prides itself on the bespoke possibilities. Flexibility extends to the style of dining you choose, with InterContinental serving anything from a wedding banquet to a gala seven-course meal.
A large portion of the styling and catering equipment you'll need for a wedding – think chair covers and candle holders – are available and free of charge. Additionally, most hotels will offer you and your groom a free night’s accommodation as part of your wedding package. No need to fret over a transportation plan!
Discounted rates for guests
Got lots of out of town guests coming? Ask for a group accommodation discount. At InterContinental, we create a specific web-based link that allows all wedding guests to book the special rate and select their own level of luxury accommodation.
By their very nature, good hotels are conveniently located near a range of amenities and attractions. This makes life easier for guests, and often gives you a range of aesthetically stunning portrait spots – InterContinental Wellington, for instance, is near the Wellington Harbour waterfront and a host of hidden urban photogenic gold, making for a stylish and varied album.
