And it’s one of the first down payments you’ll have to make! We’re not talking engagement rings or wedding dresses – it’s the venue. According to a survey* conducted by Wedded Wonderland, the couples are spending an average of 18,200 on a wedding venue, and the median price (which is more reflective of what the average person will spend), is $15,500.
Keep saving Fairies, because it doesn’t stop there. The survey also revealed Aussie brides are paying on average $6,000 for flowers and styling to take their wedding venue and look to the next level.

When it comes to planning your wedding venue costs, it pays to head out and source quotes before you lock in a final budget as the price can greatly vary in Australia from $50 – $300 per person depending on each venue’s specific offerings.
Locking in a date and venue for your wedding is the first step to getting planning underway, and you’ll need to do this approximately 12 months out from the big day. Start by thinking about which month or season you’d like to get married in, and then ensure you can find the perfect venue to fit with that desire. Your venue will also help dictate the style and feel of your big day, which is a welcome discovery for brides seeking a little guidance with theming and styling.
