Factors Affecting the Prices of Outdoor Wedding Venues in Melbourne

Many factors affect the prices of outdoor wedding venues in Melbourne. These include location, size, number of guests, type of venue, season, availability, etc. If you want to find unique and cheap wedding venues, you should know these factors:

Location: Location plays a big role in determining the price of gardens for weddings. If you choose a venue far away from the city, you will pay less. On the other hand, if you choose a venue near the city centre, you will spend more.

Size: The bigger the space, the higher the cost. However, there are some exceptions to this rule. For example, a large backyard is usually cheaper than a small one. Also, a smaller venue has fewer facilities compared to a larger one.

Number Of Guests: The more people attending your wedding, the higher the cost of garden wedding venues in Melbourne. This is because you will have to rent additional equipment such as tents, tables, chairs, etc.

Season: Seasonal variations play an important role in determining the prices of outdoor wedding locations in Melbourne. In winter, you will have to pay more for outdoor wedding venues. On the other hand, it is easier to find cheap outdoor wedding venues in summer.
