Getting married in Melbourne? Here are some of the highlights you can look forward to:
Melbourne is a beautiful place to host your wedding year round, but the most popular wedding dates are usually between September to October and March to April, when the weather is at its most consistent. Melbourne is notorious for having four seasons in one day — it can easily go from rain to hail to blue skies in an hour’s time — and many couples select their wedding date based on weather, or prioritise their wedding venue selections based on backup plans for inclement weather.What are the popular wedding styles in Melbourne?
Melbourne weddings tend to be either traditional or modern, but the wedding venue styles vary across the board. A more traditional, classic couple might opt for a religious ceremony in a famous Melbourne church followed by a reception in a glamorous hotel ballroom with crystal chandeliers and showstopping floral arrangements. A more modern couple may prefer to host their Melbourne wedding ceremony in a charming garden or courtyard before heading to a converted warehouse wedding venue in Brunswick.Are there any major events in Melbourne that we should consider when planning our wedding?
Melbourne hosts many major events throughout the year that can make planning a wedding a challenge, especially if you need to book hotel room blocks and transportation for your wedding guests. A few Melbourne events to have on your radar when selecting a wedding date are the Australian Open, AFL Grand Final, Grand Prix and Melbourne Cup Day.Should we consider any wedding venue locations near Melbourne?
