What are the popular wedding styles in the ACT?

Wedding venues in ACT tend to be mostly traditional, with lots of forest and garden venues, barns, homesteads, various wedding chapels, museums and banquet halls. Also, you can find many modern venues in the capital Canberra.

What is the best time of year for a wedding in the ACT?

Autumn and spring are pretty wonderful and sunny in the Australian Capital Territory, and both are popular times of year for outdoor weddings. Because summer can be quite hot and dry, an indoor wedding reception location with air conditioning may be the best option for you, depending on your selected wedding date. Also, there will be lots of pleasant wedding venue alternatives for winter weddings, such as restaurants, ballrooms, hotels and art galleries.

How much is a wedding venue in the ACT?

The prices of wedding venues in the Australian Capital Territory vary greatly according to several factors. The first one, the season you plan to have your ACT wedding. The amount will be pricier for a summer or spring celebration due to high demand compared to winter, which is the off-peak season. The second factor is the number of your guests. With a smaller crowd, your chances to find affordable wedding venues are higher simply because you can hold your wedding nearly everywhere. The third factor is the services you want to include in your big day. While you can visit the vendors you set your heart to one by one, you can also choose a wedding package provided by the venue. We recommend an all-inclusive package since it has everything for a complete wedding, from wedding photography to catering and decor.

Are there any major events in the ACT that we should consider when planning our wedding?

During the Floriade Festival in September and Canberra Day in March, the ACT will be quite busy, but there is no need to worry. Since the Australian Capital Territory encompasses vast lands, it offers many fantastic accommodation and transportation options for your out-of-town guests.

How far in advance should you start planning a wedding in the ACT?

While some people may arrange a wedding in a matter of weeks, it usually takes at least a year to finalize all the important details. The earlier you begin wedding planning, the more likely it is that you will be able to secure your dream vendors and wedding venue in the ACT. This is especially true if you plan to have your celebration on a Saturday during the busy periods of the year.

What questions should I ask when looking for a wedding venue in the ACT?

Most couples feel that visiting several potential settings is beneficial. Before you make an in-person visit, make a list of the dates you'd like to attend. Also, figure out how many wedding guests you'll have so you can determine what size ACT wedding venue will work best for your celebration. If live music is important to you, inquire about the sound system and whether a DJ or live band can comfortably set up their gear. Make sure to take a copy of the contract to read it at your own pace and ask whether there's a payment plan. Don’t hesitate to ask questions since everything should be as you like on your magical day!
