45 Affordable Wedding Venues in NSW

Affordable Wedding Venues NSW

Affordable wedding venues are found in all regions of NSW from popular Sydney beaches to hotspots like Byron Bay. There are cheap venues on the waterfront where you can host your wedding ceremony & reception in the one location, and there are budget country retreats that you can hire exclusively for the entire weekend. Whatever type of wedding you've got your heart set on, there's plenty of affordable venues in NSW where you can bring that vision to life. 

A cheap wedding venue offers packages that cost below the state average according to their location & what they offer. As a general rule, affordable venues usually cost no more than $100 per head as part of a wedding package with catering & beverages. Some of the cheapest venues on this list offer all-inclusive wedding packages with accommodation packaged into 3 day hire. Once the cost of accommodation is subtracted (which can be covered by attendees) the price per person falls well below the state average for weddings in NSW.

The region in which you choose to get married will have a substantial impact on the cost of venue hire and catering. It’s much easier to keep costs down in less populated areas of NSW such as rural towns like Mudgee or Wagga Wagga and regional holiday spots like Tathra on the South Coast and Forster or Yamba on the North Coast. Whereas finding cheap venues in Sydney is more of a challenge. 

Another great way to keep wedding costs down is to plan your wedding in the off peak season, which in NSW is between May and July. Most affordable wedding venues have more availability in the winter months and some charge discounted rates both for venue hire and all-inclusive packages.

Your other option is to take advantage of discounted rates that venues will usually offer to host your mid-week wedding. Fridays and Sundays attract cheaper wedding packages at some venues too. 

The following is a curated list of affordable wedding venues in NSW. All of these venues are either DIY & BYO (so you can hire your own caterers according to your budget), or they provide all-inclusive packages that cost substantially less than other venues.

With the average cost of a wedding being well over $36,000 in Australia, competition for affordable wedding venues particularly in high density areas, is high. The earlier you're able to get organised and make decisions like where you want to get married and when, the better chance you'll have of getting first access to the more affordable wedding venues in that location. Wedding venues that offer cheap packages usually have limited availability and book out quickly. Which is why, if possible, it's a good idea to enquire 18 - 24 months in advance. This gives you the best chance of booking a cheap wedding venue in some of the best locations in NSW.  View the full list of affordable wedding venues in NSW.
