Affordable wedding venues on the South Coast of NSW are some of the cheapest spots to get married in the state. Many budget friendly wedding venues on the South Coast are in waterfront locations with ocean, river or harbour views. Other inexpensive locations include private properties on acreage where cheap ceremonies and reception venue hire gives you exclusive use of the property for weekend.

On the NSW South Coast you can enjoy the privacy of your very own farm or bushland wedding without spending a fortune. There's also halls and surf life saving clubs for cheap beach weddings and DIY venues, either inland or on the water, where you can BYO everything to keep costs to a minimum.

Almost all wedding venues from the Shoalhaven to the far South Coast offer cheaper wedding packages midweek and in the off-peak winter season. Prices usually hit peak from mid August through to mid April, so if you’re aiming to save on your budget it’s worth considering planning your wedding either side of these months.

Some reception venues on the South Coast provide affordable and all-inclusive food & beverage packages.  The other cheaper venues are more DIY where you simply pay a venue hire fee and supply your own drinks and catering. With a great range of food trucks and mobile bars in the region, organising a wedding that fits your budget is not as difficult as you might think.

Here are 17 affordable wedding venues on the NSW South Coast.
