Country Wedding Venues & Practicalities

We are lucky to have many unique and unusual wedding venues in the Gold Coast Hinterland and Scenic Rim. While rustic country weddings are experiencing a surge in popularity, have you ever considered the practical aspects of a country wedding?

Here are 5 points to consider when looking for a country wedding venue:
1. You have a beautiful property with amazing views in mind for your nuptials, but is there accommodation nearby for you and your guests? After all, a wedding is a celebration and the champagne will be flowing, so nobody should even be thinking about driving home afterwards!

2. While we are being practical, are there properly plumbed and equipped bathroom facilities which will cater for everyone? No one wants to be dressed in their glad rags lining up outside a port-a-loo at 10 o’clock at night! And would you even manage with your wedding dress?


3. Is there an undercover venue available if the weather suddenly changes? You always need a rainy day option, especially in Queensland!


4. Is there somewhere private with a mirror and dressing facilities for you and your wedding party to freshen up or change? You want to look your best all night!


5. Is the venue appropriately licensed to be catering for your event? This is not something you should have to worry about on your wedding day but it’s a question you need to ask, especially at smaller venues.
