So your wedding day is getting close, you’ve got our dress, your flowers, your cake, your honeymoon all organised, but the planning is not over yet! In the days leading up to the wedding, or directly after, there’s still a bit to do. If you are having a destination wedding and everybody is travelling to the Whitsundays for a few days, you’ll probably want to throw a few events around the big day itself. Firstly, there’s your hens and bucks nights. Then you need to introduce both sides of your family, which you could do in a casual atmosphere, and perhaps you’ll have a more formal rehearsal dinner too. And how about a recovery get together, the day after your wedding?
Déjà Vu Restaurant is delighted to be able to offer you a choice of pre and post-wedding parties in the one convenient location.
Bridal Shower and Family Meet and Greet
Déjà Vu can provide shared lunch platters that you can enjoy under a Bali hut by the pool. The perfect introduction to each other and the sunny Whitsundays.
Hens and Bucks Nights
For a civilised evening, enjoy al fresco cocktails and canapés by the pool at Déjà Vu Restaurant, and admire the beautiful sunset over the Coral Sea and Whitsunday Islands. For those keen to experience the nightlife of Airlie Beach, it’s an easy stroll into town from the restaurant at Waters Edge Resort.
Déjà Vu can host your rehearsal dinner with a delicious 2 or 3 choice set menu, where guests can select on the night. We know you will be generous enough on your big day, so let the restaurant organise separate bar tabs for your guests.
The ultimate recovery day. Cleanse tired heads with a swim in the pool and enjoy a barbeque lunch, served buffet style. An array of meats, seafood and fish are barbequed before your eyes and offered with salads, cheeses, fruit and dessert.
The Famous Sunday Long Lunch
A local tradition to experience in the Whitsundays, a firm favourite with the locals. It begins with a beautiful view, 8 courses of divine food delivered in 6 intervals over 5 hours, with lots of refreshing beverages and live entertainment. A fabulous wind down event to share with family and friends, and the perfect way to catch up with those closest to you after the hustle and bustle of your wedding day.
Most importantly, while you are busy being the party planner extraordinaire, don’t forget to have some fun! These are precious days and precious memories that you will treasure forever, so don’t forget to stop, breathe, and soak up the atmosphere.
