If you’re considering Tasmania as your wedding destination, these 10 tips will help you plan the perfect day. Don’t miss out on this magical location!

Tasmania is a stunning location for a wedding, with its picturesque landscapes and charming venues. However, planning a wedding in a new location can be overwhelming. These tips will help you navigate the process and ensure your special day in Tasmania is everything you’ve dreamed of.

Consider the weather and season

Tasmania’s weather can be unpredictable, so it’s important to consider the season when planning your wedding. Summer (December-February) is the most popular time for weddings, but it can also be the busiest and most expensive. Autumn (March-May) offers cooler temperatures and beautiful foliage, while winter (June-August) can be chilly but also offers the opportunity for cozy indoor weddings. Spring (September-November) brings blooming flowers and mild temperatures.

Have a backup plan for a rainy day

Weather can be unpredictable, especially when planning outdoor events like a wedding ceremony. It’s best to have a backup plan for rainy weather just in case. Whether you decide to move the ceremony indoors or have umbrellas on hand, it’s important to think ahead and plan accordingly. This will allow you and your guests to still celebrate the special day without worrying about getting stuck in a rainstorm!

Choose venue that fits your wedding style best

If you’re planning a wedding in Tasmania, you should consider that the natural beauty of the region can add a lot to your wedding style. Whether it’s taking advantage of the gorgeous Tasmanian landscape to host an outdoor ceremony or utilising local artisan products for décor, drawing from this connection between nature and your wedding day can be an incredible experience. The possibilities of what could be achieved with a natural, Tasmanian wedding style are seemingly endless. So if you’re looking for something that truly expresses you and your partner’s personality, and will satisfy those nature-loving dreams – check out some of Tasmania’s most exquisite offerings.

Tasmanian weddings are truly spectacular – with incredible nature spots that make your special day unforgettable. From mountain peaks and ancient rainforests to vast ocean views, it’s no wonder the diversity of wedding venues in Tasmania is growing in popularity. For couples who want a natural outdoor ceremony surrounded by the raw beauty of nature, there’s nothing quite like saying ‘I do’ amongst the mountains or riverside. For those that prefer something a little more traditional, there are plenty of classic locations as well as cosy chapels and expansive vineyards for all styles of celebration. Whether you’re looking for something unique, romantic or atmospheric – whatever your dream wedding looks like, Tasmania has it all to offer!

Check venue photographs made in same month as your wedding

If you’re planning your wedding in Tasmania, one of the best things to do is to check out photographs from weddings held at the same place in the same month. Looking at photos can give you an idea of what nature will be available and how it may interplay with your chosen style of ceremony. Whether you prefer a natural outdoor setting or something more unique, looking at past photos allows you to make sure that you will truly get that perfect Tasmanian backdrop for your special day.

Organise the ceremony at the evening

Organising a ceremony at the evening has its advantages. For example, you will avoid having bright sunlight shining into the area leading to inconsistent lighting and creating distracting shadows. And you don’t have to worry about anyone suffering from sunburn! Plus, with nightfall, the air usually cools off and makes it a much more comfortable atmosphere as evening sets in. However, whatever you decide to do, just make sure that you plan ahead and allow yourself plenty of time for set-up and organisation before your event begins.
