Wedding venue for older couple

Wedding venue for older couple

We are getting married next October and trying to find the best venue (price and service) around the Sunshine Coast/Hinterland for 100 people. As we have both been married before, we dont want the extravagance or cost of an over the top event but would like a lovely relaxed and enjoyable day that doesn't leave us in debt for years. We would appreciate comments/suggestions from others who have been down this path in recent years.

there are numerous restaurants , that you probably know about. Sails, Berados on the Beach, Bistro C - would all make groegous venues with beach access.

But a common option in recent years for a lot of people is to hire luxury apartments/houses and have a private caterer. I know Mausgrass(DE) has been involved in quite a few, so hopefully can give you more specifics...

see some of the local agents like

Yes ,.....cost and ease of surroundings are the essence of not going manic on the changeover from 'practice' husbands/wives to the real stayers.

my suggestions are to look (as 40s said) for a good venue where you can arrange good private catering....current prices for gourmet fingerfood and extras should be around the $30 to $40 per head mark.....against sit down costs of $70 to $100 per head.

cost of the venue and glassware should not be to much....and some folk use the penthouse as their holiday venue.

Perhaps you could give an idea where you really envisage the site should be & the dates(The Sunshine Coast is rather a long distance) and then I could see what sites would be available in a chosen area.

A good option would be the beautiful wedding gardens at Ikatan Spa. If you have your wedding there you can also BYO alcohol and organise caterers to do the food there as well. I know they can help out with the planning too.
