How to Prepare for the 2022 Tweed Wedding Trail

The biggest wedding event in the Tweed is back for its fifth consecutive year this summer and we’re here to help you make the most of the the day. Here’s some tips to help you prepare for when Sunday, 16th of January, comes around!

GATHER YOUR SUPPORT CREW

With wedding restrictions easing under the NSW roadmap, this is the perfect opportunity to include your family and friends in wedding planning. Invite along your nearest and dearest to come with you to the Tweed Wedding Trail. Whether it’s your partner, mum, or even a bridesmaid/groomsmen or two to make the day super fun, we think the more the merrier!

Once you have your support crew set, invite them along by sharing the Facebook event to make sure they lock in the date!

DECIDE WHICH VENUES YOU’D LIKE TO VISIT

With 8 venues opening their doors across the Tweed coast and hinterland for the Tweed Wedding Trail, getting to all of them can be a bit tricky in just 5 hours. To help narrow down down the list, think about what your ideal venue must-haves or non-negotiable are. Perhaps you want a DIY venue or an venue that’s all-inclusive, a view out to the coast through the rolling hills of the hinterlands or being in close proximity to the beach, or a setting for a small intimate wedding or a venue that can fit up to 200+ guests. Whatever you have in mind, thinking about your non-negotiable may help short list some of the venues you’d like to visit.

Having a hard time deciding? Check out our blog introducing the 2022 Tweed Wedding Trail Venues and Suppliers to help you decide!

We think visiting 4 to 5 venues is manageable but if you want to hit all the venues that is acheiveable too! Just be sure to register your attendance to receive a copy of the e-booklet a week before the event which includes our signature Trail Map and recommended routes to help you plan efficiently!

RESEARCH THE SUPPLIERS

With 90+ amazing and talented suppliers showcasing their talents on the day – from photographers to planners, florists, food trucks, stationery designers, pet-minders and more, it can be a bit overwhelming. We suggest doing a bit of research on the suppliers you’d like to meet before the day to ensure you get to chat to all the suppliers on your list!

PLAN THE DAY

On the day of the Trail, the 8 venues will be open from 11am to 4pm (NSW time) so feel free to explore at your own pace but keep in mind that there are a few activities that may be time dependent.

Tweed Eco Cruises will be offering free half-hour boat cruises on the Tweed River from 10.30am (departing from waterfront venue Ancora), while Kingscliff venue Babalou will be providing gift boxes to the first 30 brides through their doors, along with a whiskey tasting session for the gents between 1pm – 2pm so make sure you plan accordingly around these activities and consider travel time.

BE COVID SAFE 

The border bubble is back starting from Monday, 13 December! That means Queensland residents will be able to attend the Trail and move freely across borders to the Tweed as we are a non-restricted border zone. You just have to be fully vaccinated and remember to fill out a border pass within two weeks prior to the event as they are only valid for 14 days.

MAKE A WEEKEND OUT OF IT

A day of driving between venues and meeting suppliers can take it’s toll, so we recommend making a weekend out of exploring the beautiful Tweed region. Book into one of the featured accommodations, check out the local beaches, make a reservation at one of the award-winning restaurants, or even book in a pampering session to unwind.
