6 Reasons to Attend the Tweed Wedding Trail this January!

We’re so thrilled to be delivering another Tweed Wedding Trail, for the seventh consecutive year, taking place on Sunday 14th January 2024 (drop the date straight in your calendar right now!) Our interactive Trail event is the perfect way to kick off a fresh new year by getting a head start on your wedding planning.

The biggest wedding event in this region, The Tweed Wedding Trail is completely free to attend, but not only do you get to check out 8 of the most beautiful venues on the region, you also get to meet and great amazing suppliers, plus you also get access to exclusive on the day specials 

If you’re currently planning your own wedding and considering getting married here on the Tweed Coast, we reckon attending the Tweed Wedding Trail is an absolute must. Here are 6 reasons you should definitely be joining us!

1. Explore 8 venues on the same day

As every bride or groom-to-be can relate, wedding planning is a seriously time-consuming process. The Tweed Wedding Trail makes venue hunting easy, with 8 incredible venues open (and Bramblewood by appointment) on the same day for your convenience.

From stunning hinterland properties to luxe coastal spaces, you can tour each venue in person at your leisure, take notes, compare your options and streamline your venue hunting in just a few short hours. Locking in your wedding venue can be an overwhelming task, but at our last Tweed Wedding Trail, we had several couples booking their venues on the spot.

2. Meet over 100 local suppliers

From floral designers to planners, celebrants, photographers, entertainment and so much more, we’ve rounded up the best of the best local suppliers so you can start connecting with your wedding day dream team. You’ll find over 100 talented wedding professionals across the Tweed Wedding Trail – allowing you to finally meet the people behind the pages you’ve been stalking on Instagram!

We know how important it is to find wedding suppliers you genuinely connect with, and the interactive format of our Trail means you can spend some time chatting with talented industry pros to find the best fit for your big day.

3. Take advantage of competitions and special offers

Because let’s be honest, who doesn’t love saving some extra dollars? Many of the wedding venues and suppliers participating in our Tweed Wedding Trail will be offering exclusive discounts, competitions and special offers purely for our Trail attendees. You could pocket some serious savings (or even be the lucky recipient of a giveaway) simply by registering and attending the event.

Plus one lucky couple will win their wedding accommodation for free thanks to Tweed Coast Weddings and the team at Kingscliff Accommodation. All you have to do is register for the event here and check out our instagram post for more details. 

4. Real life wedding inspiration

Sure, you’ve saved a bunch of wedding inspo on Pinterest, but the Tweed Wedding Trail allows you to actually experience things in a real-life setting. Our event is completely interactive – so you can go ahead and sit on those wedding chairs, sample that delicious cake, listen to the sweet sounds of live music and take in the incredible views.

Seeing a selection of creative ideas in person will give you a true sense of what you love, and how different styles and designs are brought to life. If there’s one thing we can guarantee, it’s that you’ll leave the Tweed Wedding Trail feeling completely inspired for your upcoming nuptials, and with a better understanding of your ideal vision for the day.

5. Make a day of it

As much value as we think you’ll get from the Tweed Wedding Trail when it comes to finding fresh inspiration, meeting suppliers and streamlining your planning – it’s also just a pretty great excuse to get your loved ones together for a fun day out!

Whether you attend the Trail with your partner, your parents or your bride tribe, touring the Tweed and seeing our incredible venues at a relaxed pace is the perfect way to spend a summer Sunday. Which brings us to…

6. See the Tweed Coast

Okay, we might be biased, but the Tweed Coast really is one of the most beautiful regions in the entire country. You can use the Tweed Wedding Trail as a way to explore the best parts of the Tweed Coast and Valley, with our venue map taking you from the rolling hills of Carool to the picturesque Kingscliff beaches.

Whether you’re travelling locally or from across the border, you can make the most out of the Trail to really see the Tweed. Stop for lunch at one of our award-winning restaurants, grab your caffeine fix from our delish local cafes, or simply spend some time soaking up the scenery. Need some tips?
