How to organise a small wedding in Sydney? 

Don’t know how to start planning your intimate celebrations? Don’t stress about it. We’ve prepared the ultimate guide, so you’ll know exactly what to do. Check out our list of tips, tricks and ideas below! 

  • Write down your guest list – It’s always best to start all the planning from this step. Establishing the number of guests will help you decide on the budget and the exact size of the venue. You’ll be able to choose a space that fits perfectly and isn’t too big or too small. And that, in the longer run, will guarantee that all your guests feel comfortable and happy to be there on your big day. 
  • Try choosing an off-peak date – When you invite a small number of guests, it’s usually easy to find a date suitable for most of them. Picking a less popular date will help you cut down costs, as venue prices in Sydney tend to be much lower on weekdays and outside the peak wedding season. That way you can save some money which you can allocate to other wedding elements you’ve been dreaming about. Perhaps buying a designer tuxedo/ dress or hiring the best wedding photographer in town? 
  • Consider unusual wedding venues – If you’re expecting a smaller number of people, this means you can choose from a much wider range of potential wedding venues. You might want to consider function spaces that are not designed specifically for bridal bashes, but with your touch, they turn out to be unique small wedding venues. Or how about hiring a museum or an art gallery? Apart from offering remarkable settings, they can offer much lower rates due to the fact that they aren’t classic venues for hire. 
  • Set a reasonable budget - It's important to set a budget as it will lower your chances of overspending. Discuss with your partner how much you can pay for the whole wedding (including any post-wedding plans that come with expenses, such as a honeymoon, buying a house, and having children). Once you have the number nailed down, it will be much easier for you to determine your price range and pick a venue that you can not only afford, but one that also matches your expectations. 
  • Consider the menu beforehand - What’s the rule of any wedding? Ensuring that no one leaves hungry! Decide what type of food you’d like to serve at the reception. You can personalise it to your love story and include entrees or finger foods that are significant to you. Or choose something that you know everyone loves. Perhaps you’d like to surprise everyone with evening food, or desserts served straight from a food truck? Having a general idea of the menu you’d like to serve will help you choose a venue that will cater to your needs and make the dining experience extraordinary. 
  • Take your time - Remember: time is on your side! So don’t rush all the decision-making. Start wedding preparations at least a year before the event. This will give you enough time to think through all of the important elements, such as venue options that fit within your price range. This will also allow you to compare them according to your requirements.
  • Choose a convenient location - Whether you choose a venue in your neighbourhood or across the city, make sure that it’s accessible via public transportation. Ideally, it should also offer plenty of parking for those who decide to drive to your wedding. Remember, if your preferred location is easy to reach,  you won’t need to hire transportation for your guests! 
  • Decide on a theme -  Picking a theme beforehand will guide you during the venue-search process. You’ll be able to choose spaces that will match the overall feel of your reception and offer decor that will complement your setting. Who knows, maybe you’ll find a space that doesn’t need any additional decorations and you’ll save extra money? 

Have you made some notes? Then take some time to discuss these issues with your partner and get down to planning! Remember, the earlier you start, the more time you’ll have to nail down important wedding details. Also, you’ll have many more wedding venues to choose from! So don’t wait until the last minute, and browse through our selection of fabulous small venues in Sydney!
