Tips for finding the perfect wedding venue for you

  1. Gather Inspiration: Create a moodboard with themes and styles. 
  2. Specifics: Decide on the region of your wedding, a budget and a rough numbers of guests.
  3. Venue search: Use the ABIA Wedding Directory, input your location, select 'Wedding Venues', and you'll find pricing, reviews and capacities.
  4. Shortlist: Narrow down your search until you have your top five favourite venues. Then get in touch with them asap!
  5. Venue viewings: Have a look — getting a feel for a venue in person is a game changer. 
  6. Book your wedding: The most exciting part is getting your wedding date set in stone.
  7. Commence planning: Once you've booked your venue, you can focus on planning the rest of your day. Get a head start by visiting the ABIA website to search for other wedding businesses, such as wedding flowers, dresses, suits, hair and make-up, caterers, photographers, transport, music, DJs, and celebrants.
