Coffs Harbour Wedding Planning Tips

Special Note: As we are aware that this is your special day, our Wedding Coordinator will be present during the ceremony and reception. This is to ensure the smooth running of your wedding, and also to assist with anything you may need on your day.


1.

Keep your priorities in mind, book our venue first for your ceremony and reception. There is no point in booking your car, cake, photographer and video only to find out that the function room is not available on your chosen day.


2.

If having your ceremony elsewhere, try to keep it close to the Resort as this will make it much easier on your guests to travel to and from one to the other and allow you the maximum amount of time for photography.


3.

Give a thought to hiring a coach to transport your guests – a thoughtful and much appreciated gesture!


4.

Arrange pre dinner drinks and canapes to be served to your guests in our Ocean View Foyer once they arrive at the Resort. This gives the photographer enough time to take those perfect shots and keeps all your guests happy whilst awaiting the arrival of the bridal party.


5.

If you are planning to have your ceremony and reception at the Resort, we can organise a beautiful outdoor ceremony overlooking the ocean on our Resort lawns. In the event of rain, we will have a wet weather back up.


6.

Keep in mind number of guests. Our Opals Function Room, which has floor to ceiling glass windows overlooking the ocean, can seat up to 100 guests. If you are expecting more guests our pillar less Ballroom can accommodate up to 320 guests.


7.

Entertain your guests with an alternative to the traditional dinner reception, choose from a variety of breakfast and lunch receptions.


8.

When choosing the right photographers, florists, celebrant’s etc don’t forget to use your personal wedding co-ordinator. This is a complimentary service, and as we deal with these suppliers on a day to day basis, we can be of great assistance.


9.

This is a special day for both of you so make sure it stays about you. Take some time out on the day even if it is 5 minutes and lastly don’t blow your budget, we can help you to tailor a package to suit your needs.
