Complete your wedding details below and Wedding Vendors will be matched to your wedding based on your dates, locations, bridal party and guest numbers.
Calculating your wedding budget will vary substantially depending on the cost of other products and services outside your Reception Venue cost.
Use the costs below as a guide to determine a possible budget. Do not under or overstate your budget to much as you do not want to receive proposals from suppliers who do not cater for your budget.
The reception is most likely going to be your biggest expense, so to calculate your total budget, you can use this price per head for reception as a guide and then double it.
Budget Wedding: # of guests x $80.00 PH
Standard Wedding: # of guests x $100.00 PH
High End wedding: # of guests x $150.00 PH
Prestige Wedding: # of guests x $200.00 PH
For example if the Reception is going to cost $100 per head (PH) and you have 120 guests then the equation would be 120 x $100 = $12,000 x 2 = $24,000, this leaves you with $12,000 to purchase all your other wedding requirements from the Bridal Gown to the Photographer to the Bridesmaids Gowns to Flowers, Celebrant, DJ/Entertainment, Transport, Cake Video, Hair, Makeup Ect.
