After you have a rough idea when you want to get married, the next step is to spend time visiting various wedding venues to see which of them suits your wedding plans and the most important budget of your wedding. The idea of finding the most romantic castle to hold your wedding might be everyone’s dream, but if it’s good and really out of your price range, then you have to think again.
There are more than enough Cairns & Port Douglas wedding venues for you to find the perfect one for you, so don’t rush, take your time and find something that you both can agree on. When you visit a wedding venue, don’t just turn up unannounced, not only may there be a wedding or another function already on, but the staff won’t be prepared to show you around properly.

Call them first, make a proper appointment for one of their staff to meet you, they can then show you around the venue, answer all the questions you have and discuss your wedding plans. They will also be able to tell you whether or not the wedding venue is available for your chosen wedding date. Unless you are planning a wedding in a hurry, take your time to visit some different places, ask them how many guests they can pour for a wedding ceremony, make sure it matches your plan.
Most wedding venues in Cairns not only hold the wedding ceremony, but also allow you to hold your wedding breakfast and of course your evening reception. Again, consider how many guests you will be inviting, and check with the wedding venue how many people they can comfortably seat for the meal. You certainly don’t want your wedding guests crammed in, nor do you want guests shoved somewhere at the back of the venue too far away from the top table. Check with the wedding venue if they have their own caterers or whether you need to look for wedding caterers yourself. This will have a significant impact on the costs of hiring the wedding venue.
