Perth Wedding Venues – When Should We Book?

Perth Wedding Venue Setting

There are many beautiful Perth wedding venues to choose from.  Until your venue is confirmed however, you can’t start the rest of the planning as you need to have a confirmed date to give to potential vendors.  Booking your wedding venue in Perth is one of the first steps in organising your special day.

So, when you have a rough idea of guest numbers and a budget in mind it is time to start your research.  It is best to book early to avoid disappointment.

How soon should we start viewing Perth wedding venues?

Ideally you should start collecting information about  wedding venues in Perth as soon as you become engaged, especially if you are looking to get married in peak season or on a Saturday.  We suggest viewing venues at least twelve to eighteen months in advance of your wedding date.

If you are looking to get married at a really popular venue then we suggest booking even earlier.  Those ‘iconic’ Perth wedding venues get booked up to three years in advance.

Pull together a shortlist of venues that you want to visit.  Only visit one venue per day otherwise you will get information overload and won’t be able to soak in the atmosphere of each venue.

If you are planning to have the ceremony and reception at the same venue then this can make things easier. If you are having the ceremony at a different location then you need to coordinate availability at both venues.

What if I need to find a last minute venue? 

If you don’t want a long engagement and are keen to tie the knot in the next few months it is possible to find a Perth wedding venue on short notice.  Occasionally couples are let down by their original venue and need to find a replacement.

There are venues that have last minute availability, especially in low season.  You may have to compromise however, and get married on a Sunday or even a weekday.  You can check real time date availability of Perth wedding venues with Our Wedding Date.
