The 24th of February is a Saturday right at the end of the summer months and is likely to be warm still. Many choose late Feb to catch the last of the summer warmth but avoid a super hot wedding day.

This one is the Saturday before a public holiday in Victoria, SA, Tas and ACT! That gives your guests plenty of time to recover and head home after a big reception.


March is one of the best (and most popular) months of the year for your wedding. It’s no surprise that three of the top dates this year fall Saturdays in March.


This one is just six days before Good Friday, a national holiday. Many people have opted for this date to avoid getting married over Easter.

April 7th is the first Saturday after Easter, and similarly, many people have chosen this date to avoid the Easter Holiday. Plus, having a little time off of work before the wedding won’t go astray!

If you’re after a Spring wedding, then October is a really popular time to get married. The first Saturday is a very popular wedding date for 2018.


The last two Saturdays of October are also both extremely popular among 2018 couples. At this time of year, flowers in season include Anthereium, Lisianthus, David Austin Roses and Lily of the Valley.


The end of October is a beautiful time of the year, full of beautiful flowers and perfect for brighter colour schemes for your wedding.
