YOUR WEDDING BUDGET - decide first, how
much you are prepared to spend in total - then
break this amount down into the various
components - Invitations, gowns/formal wear,
ceremony, celebrant, reception, transport,
photography, video, honeymoon etc. Breaking components further
into sub groups will help set realistic spend levels e.g.. Split -
Reception into venue charges, food, and decorating.
You have a wide range of options to consider. There are many
wonderful, indoor and outdoor, Reception venues and locations
available on the Coffs Coast and hinterland. Some venues have in-
house catering, with others you will need to consider a mobile catering
To minimise costs and inconvenience to your guests, try and locate
your Reception close to your planned Ceremony. A significant time
interval between Ceremony and Reception is very hard on your
guests - who have nothing to do, but wait around.
WOW WEDDING SERVICES
WOW functions and other services at Coffs Event Centre work at all
Venues including private homes. We decorate and provide lighting,
sound, visual, ‘virtual’ and video support. We have battery operated
PA equipment for beach or bush gatherings etc.
OUTDOOR CEREMONY VENUES
With an Outdoor Ceremony, you need to plan for an alternative “Bad
Weather Option”. A call may need to be made on which option to use
the day prior to the wedding. REMEMBER - you will also need to
advise your guests of any last minute venue changes.
PRICING OF WEATHER OPTIONS - We encourage you to work with
us to minimise the cost of weather changes. It is important to make a
“Bad Weather Call” early enough for us to avoid duplication of effort.
BEACH OR PUBLIC PARK CEREMONIES
Depending on the size location and duration of public space usage,
you may need to get the relevant Council permission and submit the
paperwork (risk assessments, etc) and pay the fee. There's no
guarantee of approval. The earlier you make application, the better.
BOTANIC GARDENS - Your Ceremony/Reception needs to be pre-
booked. The phone number is: 02 6648 4188.
COMMITMENT AND BOOKING
Commitment and Booking is a ‘trade-off’. Deciding and booking
reserves your place WHICH IS IMPORTANT, but it limits your options
to change your mind at a later date. Most venues and services
charge a Booking Fee, which you forfeit if you cancel. Remember
everyone helping you, has costs that they need to recover in the event
of a cancellation.
COFFS EVENT CENTRE do charge a deposit that does include a
non-refundable Booking Fee. With us, once booked and deposit
is paid you have complete freedom without any special charges
or penalties to change numbers booked or styles and colours or
add to or subtract from your order as the need arises.
There are compassionate circumstances where we will return all or
part of your deposit if the event needs to be cancelled.
