About wedding accommodation

Finding the perfect place to stay for your wedding in Nelson and Tasman is an essential part of creating a memorable experience for you and your guests. From luxurious resorts overlooking the sparkling waters of Tasman Bay to cosy bed and breakfasts nestled in the region's lush countryside, there's accommodation to suit every taste and budget.

How far in advance should we book accommodation for our wedding?

It's best to secure accommodation as soon as you've confirmed your wedding date and venue, especially if you're getting married during peak season (December to March). For large groups or if you need multiple rooms, booking 9-12 months in advance is recommended.

Should we book a block of rooms for our guests?

If you have many out-of-town guests, booking a room block can be convenient, and discounted rates may be offered by vendors. Check with local hotels about their group booking policies and any minimum night stay requirements.

What types of accommodation are available in Nelson and Tasman? 

The region offers a wide range of options including hotels, motels, bed and breakfasts, holiday homes, lodges, and luxury resorts. Many wedding venues also offer on-site accommodation, which can be convenient for the bridal party.

How can we help our guests find suitable accommodation?

Consider creating a list of recommended accommodation options at different price points near your venue. You could include this information on your wedding website or with your invitations.

What should we look for in a bridal suite or honeymoon accommodation? 

Look for amenities that will make your stay special, such as a spa bath, beautiful views, or a private balcony. Some accommodations offer special packages for newlyweds, which might include extras like champagne on arrival or a late checkout.

Is it customary to pay for guests' accommodation? 

Generally, guests are expected to pay for their own accommodation. However, couples often cover accommodation for the bridal party or immediate family. Be clear about expectations when communicating with your guests.
