Weddings In Cairns & Tropical North Queensland

Your Cairns north Queensland wedding date may be determined by the availability of your choice of chapel, church, gardens, access to the beach and your reception venue, so you will need to make early enquiries before making a final decision on your wedding date.

The majority of weddings take place on a Saturday and in Cairns and the Resorts in Cairns, Northern Beaches in Queensland the most popular time of year is April to December during the dry season. However, weekday and Sunday weddings are now becoming more and more common for couples of no particular denomination. Weddings on Palm Cove and Port Douglas Beach are very popular and a fun way to celebrate your special day in a relaxed yet idyllic tropical location.

Wedding Styles & Themes

Will it be a formal white wedding incorporating all the traditions, followed by a huge party for everyone you know? Or will it be a relaxed intimate occasion at a small boutique Beachfront Resort or a quaint Queenslander style of house on the Cairns Atherton Tablelands sharing your day with close family and friends?

Either way, it will be the personal touches that will make your wedding day a unique and memorable occasion. Your theme could be determined by a favourite colour, a fragrant flower, a shared interest or hobby, old movies, an heirloom veil, a love of everything Victorian — in fact, anything that is special to you both.

Your chosen wedding theme may then help you decide on the suitability of venues for your ceremony and reception. Maybe you'd like a simple wedding ceremony followed by a big celebration-style reception complete with a big band and magnificent coloured lighting and table centers larger than life itself.

Having chosen your style and theme, the other important decisions will be made easier.

Wedding Assistance

Choose your best man and chief bridesmaid carefully as they will play key roles in helping you organise pre-wedding events beforehand and be especially important to you on the actual wedding day so they must be the type of people you can totally rely on to get the job done. (Don't be offended if the first person you ask declines the privileged invitation of being a bridesmaid or head groomsman. Some people just dislike being in the limelight and others know their own capabilities.

Of course your wedding is a very special occasion for your loved ones, so it's important to involve them as much as possible and they will enjoy it just as much as you will. Plus, it will lighten the stress load for you. Your wedding can be a lesson in learning to delegate without losing overall control.

Take time to choose the right professional help. A Wedding Planner is sometimes the best option if you have a busy life and seem to find it hard to sit and plan a wedding. Wedding Planners are especially useful if you are getting married in a destination that you do not actually reside in as they have all the wedding professional contacts at their fingertips.

Use the tips on this website; if possible purchase a wedding etiquette book to make sure you have thought about everything before making final decisions. Then, book as much as you can, as soon as you can, especially if it's to be a autumn wedding — your favourite florist may already be taking bookings eighteen months in advance. Importantly, having the Wedding Planning specialists on your side early on will provide you with an abundance of help and advice.
