by | Jun 4, 2018 | Blog, Melbourne, Sydney

Now that you’ve decided to tie the knot this autumn in Australia, have you realised what your wedding budget is? With weddings potentially being one of the most expensive things you’ll deal with in life, you may feel like postponing things until you have a larger income. Here are the 4 best and cheapest ways to have a wedding in Sydney




You don’t have to spend a fortune on a wedding in the Sydney area. When you focus on the right venue and entertainment, you can find the cheapest route to a memorable event.

Take a look at affordable ways you can do this, including going through Lily Road to book your wedding entertainers.

Finding a More Affordable Venue in Sydney

The choices for wedding venues in Sydney are vast, so you have a lot to explore. While you can find some wildly luxurious venues here (especially around Sydney Harbour), some exist that won’t break you financially.

Your best way to approach this is to rent smaller wedding venues rather than pretend half of your wedding guests didn’t show up in a bigger place. Doing this still gives you a quality venue that’s just a little smaller than average.

For an outdoor venue, Kemps Creek Sporting & Bowling Club is noted as being one of the most affordable wedding venues in Sydney. At only $100 per head, you’ll still be able to enjoy beautiful surroundings while hosting both your ceremony and reception in one location.

Their indoor Function Centre is elegant and modern, with the outdoor Oasis Room not far away. To give you a little more luxury for the price, they include a bridal suite.

A Few Other Affordable Venues to Consider

You’ll find many more smaller wedding venues in Sydney with rates close to Kemps Creek. Some others to consider include:

  • Clarence House provides premier settings in iconic and heritage listed spaces in the heart of Sydney. It is one of the best wedding venues in Sydney and hosted more than 3000+ weddings every year.
  • Boathouse on Blackwattle Bay is a great little affordable venue giving you great atmosphere. You can arrive by water taxi to a converted boathouse along Sydney Harbour. The panoramic views are extraordinary.
  • Dunbar House, even though it’s one of the most popular wedding venues in the city. Built in the 1830s, this intimate house holds 130 people and gives you stunning views of the Sydney city skyline.
  • Waterview in Bicentennial Park is an opportunity to use the many affordable parks in the city and still have many picturesque landscapes.

Cutting Out Specific Details to Make Your Wedding Cheaper

A lot of great examples exist online showing you what various Australian couples did to save money on their weddings. Some couples simply cut down on extraneous things, like only hiring a wedding photographer for two hours rather than all day.

Other ways you could cut include eliminating props, expensive gifts for the bridal party, or eliminating elaborate decorations. All of these frequently add up to thousands more.

By cutting these and more, you leave additional room to bring in the right wedding entertainers Sydney.

Since music is the real core of entertaining your guests at your wedding, you’ll want to make way to find the best talent.
