Easy Weddings has been running half-day events in each state around Australia free of charge for the last few years. As this is a two-day event including internationally renowned speakers, lunch and refreshments, and due to the size (and calibre) of the venue required, we are charging for this event to cover some costs. We are organising this event to support the wedding industry and have kept the ticket prices as low as possible while still putting together the best event imaginable, so that you can grow your wedding business.
