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

Deciding on a specific time of year for your Blue Mountains wedding will be one of the most important decisions you will make. It will affect pretty much everything from your venue and vendors to theme and dress.

According to the surveys and data, in-between seasons (Autumn and Spring) are the most popular times to get married, and the demand for Blue Mountains wedding venues is the highest in March and November. Couples typically choose to have an outdoor wedding in a wide array of modern and country venues. Barns, farms, wineries, botanic gardens, lake and forest venues are popular among couples who plan to have a small wedding with their beloveds. Also, estates are perfect for big gatherings with lots of out-of-town guests since they usually provide five-star accommodation. Finally, mountain weddings are trending among adventurous nature lovers.

If you want to avoid competition, consider having your most special day in April or December so you can still soak up a bit of that warm weather and find more affordable venues due to the low season. If you’re searching for a large wedding venue with accommodation, you can check elegant hotels and resorts. These kinds of facilities have several event spaces where you can have everything related to the affair, such as reception halls and restaurants.

There are many other function venues for winter celebrations as well. Old factories and warehouses are trending among couples looking for a quaint and industrial venue where they can have a vintage wedding. Moreover, many people who want to have a luxury wedding choose to hire a private property for the utmost exclusivity.

What are the popular wedding styles in the Blue Mountains?

You can find dozens of unique wedding venues in the Blue Mountains to which you can incorporate the theme on your mind. The most popular style is, not surprisingly, the country wedding in this mountain range with villages dotted with guesthouses, cliffs, gardens and waterfalls. Doesn’t it sound magical to have your wedding ceremony overlooking the stunning eucalyptus forests? Wineries, forest venues, estates, barns and farms are among the highly sought-after country style venues. This style usually incorporates rustic elements such as reclaimed wood, timber and unstructured wildflowers, and some portion of the event typically takes place in an outdoor venue. Most ceremonies are performed under a beautiful wedding arch or inside a marquee, and it is followed by a garden party reception.

Another theme is the ever-popular classic or traditional wedding. It includes the wedding cake cutting, first dance, toasts and bouquet toss. It's a quite formal occasion, and couples who opt for this style prefer ballgown style dress, tuxedos or suits. Ceremonies are often performed in a church, and they continue in nearby reception venues such as hotels, reception halls, resorts or private property venues. These large function venues are very experienced in hosting these kinds of big gatherings, and they often offer all-inclusive wedding packages with lots of services, from photography to flowers. They also have the best restaurants with world-renowned chefs and skilful staff.

One of the other highly favoured styles is the vintage wedding that typically takes place in industrial and quaint venues. It has references to the roaring Jazz age and Victoria era. Vintage wedding cars, unique venues, photo boots, Gatsby-Esque cocktail parties... Can it get better than this? As you can have an intimate wedding in a small and relatively cheap venue like an old mill, you can also choose to have a grand wedding in a luxury venue like historic castles and large manors.

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

The Blue Mountains is a region that encompasses many towns and villages, each with its own local festivals and events throughout the year. The biggest annual events in this mountain range are Blue Mountains Folk Festival, Blue Mountains Folk Festival and Winter Magic Festival. Most of them usually take place in warm weather so, if you plan to have an alfresco celebration at the most beautiful outdoor venues such as botanic gardens, country-style barns and historic estates, take the dates of the events and school holidays into account when booking your Blue Mountains wedding venue. Reserve blocks of hotels as early as possible if you have many guests travelling for your big day.

Should we consider any wedding venue locations near the Blue Mountains?

If you’re searching for wedding venues in the Blue Mountains, it means that you prioritize natural beauties, scenic views, and five-star accommodation. Similar mountain range options near Sydney we love for a destination wedding are Southern Highlands and Central Coast. Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and Barossa Valley also have the best wineries and wine estates if you plan to have a country wedding in a rustic venue with good food, top-notch wine and rolling hills view.

How much is a wedding venue in the Blue Mountains?

It’s hard to give an exact amount on costs of Blue Mountains wedding venues since it depends on the affordability of the venues you're choosing between. For instance, you can choose a grand and luxury venue, or you can select a location that is more budget-friendly.

The most important factor in your expenses is the number of guests. If you have a few guests, you can opt for a small and intimate wedding venue. Having a restaurant reception might work out for you perfectly and also, superb food, experienced staff and beautiful wedding decor is guaranteed. If you plan a celebration with a big crowd, you can choose among dozens of large and formal venues such as hotels, reception halls and many more. However, the cost will probably be higher since nearly all wedding facilities make their pricing per head.

How you want your big day to look and feel is also an important factor affecting your search for cheap wedding ceremony and reception venues. While some couples opt to build their wedding in venues from scratch by visiting vendors one by one, some choose all-inclusive wedding packages. Almost all venues such as country-style barns, farms and elegant reception halls offer these packages that include everything you could possibly need from catering to flowers and photography. As you can choose one of the readily available ones, you can also tailor them to your wishes. For example, if you’re planning a micro celebration, you can create your own small wedding package.

If you have tight schedules or a limited budget, you can find many all-inclusive elopement packages offered by relatively cheap venues. Last but not least, you can benefit from special offers by having a Blue Mountain wedding in the off-season.

How far in advance should you plan a wedding in the Blue Mountains?

Every couple and every Blue Mountain wedding is totally different. While some couples plan their wedding in two months, others work on it for almost two years. We recommend starting at least a year ahead and follow the simple guidelines by creating a checklist before starting.

Determine your budget and come up with a guest list. This is a crucial step that will save you so much time since your search for the ideal setting will be quicker and easier. For instance, you can book a grand and luxury venue, or if you’re looking for budget options, you can look for a small and affordable venue, and you can check elopement packages.

After that, book your officiant and vendors. Send invitations, arrange dress fittings and start planning your honeymoon. Take care of all the nooks and crannies, from the wedding cake to the DJ. Finalize all the details, smile and enjoy!

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

Once you’ve narrowed down your list of potential wedding venues in the Blue Mountains, it’s time to start asking questions. Start with asking about availability, capacity, and pricing. Find out if there's anything you need to know about the set-up, like lightning and decorations, noise and 3rd party vendors. Ask if you can have your wedding ceremony and reception there if desired. Continue with discussing the wedding packages, the down payment and what payment plans are available. If you plan to have an outdoor wedding, learn whether they have a rain backup plan. You can contribute to your budget by having your Blue Mountains wedding by booking it in the offseason or during a weekday.
