Why you should have your wedding at a hotel

Updated: Aug 22, 2018

Hotel venues may be considered a ‘traditional’ option for wedding ceremonies and receptions these days, however traditional can prove to be beneficial to you and your soon-to-be partner as the big day nears.

Here are FIVE reasons to choose a hotel like Bell City for your wedding:


1. Regional/ Interstate Guests

If you’re from out of town, or a number of your guests are, then you’ll be organising accommodation for them anyway right? Then it only makes sense to have your entire wedding at a full-serviced hotel like Bell City.


It can be stressful for guests who aren’t familiar with Melbourne to navigate their way through the CBD, or an obscure laneway in search of the venue.


2. Ease from sun up to sun down

Unlike other wedding locations, we have everything you need in one place so there is no stress from driving around all day (from the ceremony, then to the location for photographs and eventually getting to the Reception), and those transportation fees do all add up!


Bridal parties can get ready in the privacy and seclusion of their very own hotel room.


From our romantic Garden setting, Grand Ballroom staircase, Roof top view and Poolside area create beautiful locations for professional photos. Once photos are done, take one last leisurely walk to the Bell City Ballroom for the magical wedding you’ve been dreaming of.

3. In-house services

Here at Bell City we have a designated Chef and Events Team to ensure that your day runs smoothly. This saves you money on catering, for example, which we all know can come at a significant cost. Catering companies commonly charge for the transportation of food to the reception. At Bell City meals come straight from one of our onsite kitchens and straight to your table. We understand that food plays a vital role in a wedding and we have included a complimentary menu testing for two.


You won’t need to stress about hiring linen, sashes, tables, chairs or cutlery - as all of this is already stocked on site and provided in your package.


By not having to think and plan for all those small things you are left with time to relax leading up to the big day.

4. On-site wedding executive

With 7 years’ experience and a stellar reputation in planning the perfect weddings at Bell City, Stephanie Chittenden will help make your day come alive. From the initial enquiry, to site visit of Bell City, to Wedding planning meetings, ceremony rehearsals and on the day assistance; Stephanie is available every step of the way to ensure your dream wedding becomes a reality!

5. Wedding related venues and facilities

We have a variety of Restaurants and Facilities at Bell City at Bell City for guests to utilise at their leisure; including a pool, sauna and gym.


The CHILL Restaurant and Bar is ideal for cocktails while waiting for the bride and groom to finish photos.

Bell City is in prime location, situated in Melbourne’s vibrant northern suburbs, but is also close to the city. You and your guests are just 30 minutes from exploring all the Melbourne CBD has to offer, however you get to escape the hustle and bustle of the city at the end of the day and relax in our resort-like grounds.


So there you have it; five reasons why organising your wedding at a Bell City is bound to make for a more enjoyable and unforgettable wedding day for you and your guests.
