Finding the perfect wedding venue in Perth can be tricky. Whether you want views, privacy, something quite different or a DIY space to make exactly you…. there is a wedding venue in Perth that will be perfect for you.
However, all of this choice can be quite overwhelming and confusing, and with so many newbies popping up, it’s difficult to keep up to date with what is out there.
Booking your wedding venue should be the first thing you lock in. It sets the feel, the vibe and the style for your day so that all other elements will flow from this.
What do I do before I visit any venues?
BUT before you charge off to go visiting spaces, you must be armed with some information. Knowing answers to the following questions is super important to have sorted before you start looking:
• What is your budget?
• Roughly how many guests are you inviting?
• How do you want your day to look and feel? eg casual and relaxed, massive party, intimate and cosy.
Having this information at hand will assist in narrowing down what you are looking for. Just because you love the look of a place, does not always mean that it is the best fit for your wedding day.
Once you have these details in place, it’s time to get your “Roger Researcher” pants on.
1. Start scrolling Instagram, especially using specific hashtags like #perthweddingvenues, to narrow down your search.
2. Use Google to search key phrases such as “Perth wedding venues” and “wedding venues in Perth” to see what’s out there.
For more useful tips on HOW to find that perfect wedding venue in Perth, head to my blog “Top Tips For Choosing the Perfect Wedding Venue”.
But I know how daunting it can be to find the right venue – one that is perfectly you; one that you haven’t seen a zillion times over; and one that all of your friends haven’t used.
So I have pulled together 10 unmissable Perth wedding venues to kick you off in the right direction. All have something very special about them and so worth showing off.
