Did you know the average Australian wedding costs more than $32,000?*

Whilst a marriage may cost as little as $250 in some Australian states (because all you need to legally say "I do" is a celebrant and two witnesses) many couples understandably want the celebration of their marriage to live up to the promise: Best. Day. Ever!

And what does that look like for most modern couples? It's their take on what they think traditionally makes up a wedding - from gowns and cakes to flowers and cars. And most importantly, throwing one hell of a party to celebrate with their favourite family and friends.

In 2019, this came to an average wedding price tag of $32,333. With nearly 40% of couples paying for their wedding on their own - and the average honeymoon adding another $7,307 on top of that - it's no wonder you might be asking, "How are we going to pay for this?"

Why you might consider a wedding loan

Going into debt for a wedding might sound extreme, and it’s a decision that should be considered very seriously - but for some couples it may just be the most sensible solution to give them the capacity to pay for this one-off, large upfront expense.

Some benefits that might apply to you include:

  • Time - being able to have your wedding when you want it
  • Easier budgeting - you’ll have a set loan amount and a set time to pay it off
  • Flexible repayment terms - you’ll have between 18 months and 7 years to pay back what you owe.
