Weddings in the Country
Most couples want a special location for their wedding. Some choose the beach. Others prefer a venue with gorgeous gardens and wonderful service. More and more couples are choosing to hold their weddings in the country.
Pros of Weddings in the Country
- The scenery is often very romantic. Sometimes it is quite dramatic with rugged mountains and spectacular views
- Many weddings in the country are held on private properties, so privacy is guaranteed
- Country venues are often historic and sometimes spooky. Woolsheds, homesteads, country pubs and cute farm cottages are all used as wedding venues. Glengallan Homestead on the Darling Downs is said to be haunted
- Weddings in the country make the most of great local produce. Many wineries and other venues in country Queensland have fabulous restaurants
- The countryside is ideal for rustic themed weddings. Think about having your reception in an old barn
- DIY fans can hire a property and stage their wedding their way. Wide open spaces are great for weddings in teepees or marquees. Village halls are also economical options for DIY couples
Cons of Weddings in the Country
- Some guests might not be able to attend weddings in the country. Older guests or guests with young children might be unable to drive a long way to attend
- Some remote locations might not have all the facilities city dwellers are used to. Check out the internet in the area if you want to live stream your wedding
- Accommodation might be difficult or expensive to arrange if your guests want to stay the night. Many areas in the Scenic Rim have plenty of cute BnBs. Some country venues like Spicers Hidden Vale at Grandchester and Dusty Hill Wines at Moffatdale have accommodation onsite
