The Canberra Rex Hotel is holding its very first Wedding Open Day and honestly, they had us at ‘complimentary wedding menu tasting’.
Making the life of anyone looking to say ‘I do’ easier—because we all know wedding planning is very, very stressful—on Sunday 13 August the Canberra Rex Hotel, home of the stunning Howling Moon bar, is opening its door for very a swoon-worthy event.
And you can thank us when you walk away fantasising about saying your vows as the sun sets over Black Mountain.
Because from hosting a variety of incredibly talented wedding vendors from around the region to showcasing their different event spaces—including the Bridal Suite—for design inspiration and offering the chance to sample catering options, the open day is perfect for anyone struggling to plan their Canberra-centric wedding.
According to the Canberra Rex Hotel Senior Sales and Events Executive Nicola Pearce, with recently renovated event spaces and accommodation rooms, it’s a great chance for couples to re-introduce themselves to the Canberra Rex Hotel.
“This open day is an exciting opportunity for our team to have the chance to talk with potential couples. As we can tailor all our wedding packages, it’s always best to chat face-to-face so that we can understand exactly what elements are important for your day,” she says.
“It gives us the opportunity to build your dream wedding.”
After exploring the range of different event spaces within the hotel, including the larger ballrooms, the luxurious cocktail lounge—Swan & King—and the rooftop bar, registered visitors can also take their wedding planning to the next level with the opportunity to taste a range of menu items while enjoying a glass of sparkling and sweeping views over Canberra city.
And if you do choose to say ‘I do’ at The Rex, the team will ensure all your wedding dreams become a reality—including personalising all of the food and drink options.
“We can tailor our menus to suit a couple’s unique vision for their special day—it is really important to our team to help ensure that your day is exactly how you envisioned, and we will work with you to create a menu that suits your style and budget,” says Nicola.
“We love when our couples come to us with their unique ideas for their wedding menu, often couples will have a favourite meal or a traditional family dish that they would like to incorporate into their menu, and we work together to make that come to life!”
That’s just the beginning of why The Rex is just a great space for your special day.
From pre-wedding celebrations in the form of a cocktail masterclass at the Swan & King to wedding accommodation and the knowledge you can party the night away thanks to a complementary night’s stay in the Bridal Suite (with late check-out the next day), they offer couples a full wedding journey.
“Our dedicated team is here to look after all the finishing touches to ensure your day is exactly as you imagined, leaving you plenty of time to celebrate with your loved ones.”
What more do you need? Well, how about your ceremony being paid for?
In conjunction with the Open Day, the Rex team is also hosting a major giveaway. Any couple who registers and attends the Open Day will go into the draw to receive a free ceremony in The Howling Moon, inclusive of a two-hour photography package kindly gifted by Jenna Mac Photography, and a night’s stay in the Bridal Suite (terms and conditions apply to the giveaway of course). It says ‘wedding bells’ like nothing else.
