byron wedding advice from the experts

byron wedding advice from the experts

any best laid plan will benefit from asking those in the know, and a byron bay wedding is no exception! what better way to avoid any commonly made mistakes than to ask the pros…..those that are happy and hitched and ready to tell their tale of course!

we’ve asked around and put together some of the best tips from a few of our byron beach café brides and thrown in a little wisdom from our own experienced byron wedding team. 

 check the tides!

byron’s dramatic coastlines can create a picturesque backdrop for your byron bay wedding ceremony but also keep in mind that many of these locations can be affected by high tides so be sure to do your research when deciding on your ceremony time and location.  need help coordinating these important elements? talk to us!

don’t skimp on time

like sands through the hourglass, time will go no faster than on your wedding day! have you allowed enough time to get to the wedding, allowed sufficient space for speeches, discussed timings with your photographer? ‘not only did we not take into account daylight savings when we invited guests from queensland, we completely underestimated how long people speeches would take. it really threw out timings for the rest of the night, so i wish we would have pressed a 10 min limit on them beforehand!) emma 31

don’t worry, be happy

be mindful to plan a wedding that you’ll have time to enjoy rather them stressing over little things, which at the end of the day, won’t really matter.  always remember what is important – marrying the love of your life! the rings, dresses, flowers, food and drink all come second to that. this will help you maintain a realistic perspective on your byron bay wedding.



nominate someone to ensure that the wishing well and gifts are taken from the venue at the end of the night. but don’t stop there. have a ‘go to’ person on the day that can tie any loose ends, run any last minute errands and help with any last minute changes.  don’t forget that we can help you with as little or as much help as you need on the day.

‘a huge thank- you to beach byron bay for making our wedding so very special. your assistance pre-wedding through to your attention to detail on the day and service over and above any of our expectations just made our day! the food was to die for – everyone is raving about the food! the drinks flowed, the tables looked perfect, the toast on the beach was great fun and you enabled us to feel so very relaxed. we can’t wait to come back for another meal!” claire & andrew

make the wedding shoe fit.

ensure the style you choose for your day matches the byron wedding venue as you don’t want to clash with your surroundings. for example, simple, elegant, uncluttered decorations work best for the byron beach café. needless to say, a less is more approach goes a long way given the stunning location and view.  click here to view our wedding gallery for inspiration


country offerings

natural beauty it has in abounds but keep in mind that being a smaller township you won’t find some of those services that are taken for granted in the big smoke. ‘we mistakenly assumed that there would be a dry cleaning service in byron…which there isn’t!’ we wasted a lot of time, energy and stress organising a last minute service out of town!’ kim 24


 take a breath…together

don’t forget to cherish those everlasting moments together…..‘our wedding night went so quick that dan and i never really stood back and soaked up the atmosphere together….we were too busy ensuring we got around to all our guests. before we knew it the night was over and we wished we would have spent more time together at our own wedding!’  megan 27
