How To Plan Your Perfect Central Coast Wedding

Everything Your need for a Central Coast Wedding is Here!

 

The Central Coast region is a gorgeous mix of flora-filled hinterland, calm bays, pristine beaches, inviting inlets, and tranquil lakes. 

It’s the ideal destination for your wedding, whether you live in nearby Sydney, Gosford or a far away land. 

As the Central Coast’s premier wedding venue, we’re pleased to provide you with some tips and suggestions for creating your dream day in this scenic area.   

The Central Coast never fails to provide the perfect backdrop for a NSW wedding. 

Keep the following tips in mind and your wedding dreams will turn into reality and you’ll exchange I do’s and celebrate the first day of wedded bliss without a hitch.

 

Keep within your Wedding Budget

Make a list of items needed for your wedding in order of importance. Then direct funds to items at the top. If a multi-course dinner rates much higher than decorations, opt for a Central Coast wedding venue that provides an inventory of decorations or a beautiful garden venue that needs little decorating.

Tip: On a budget? Check out our ‘Silver Wedding Package’ starting at just  $4,500 for 50 people.

 

Wedding Planners in Central Coast

Check whether the wedding venues you’re considering provide a wedding coordinator to assist you with ceremony and reception details. How will this person help you? Will they be able to help you create a wedding which will fit your personal style? Are packages available that you can customise? Be sure that the venue can accommodate any special requests you have.

 

On-site help

If there is a wedding coordinator, find out if  she will be at the Central Coast venue on your wedding day. If so, she can give you a list of her duties and tell you how she will ensure that everything flows smoothly. Or a catering manager or other professional may take charge. 

 

Food for Your Wedding

You want to be certain that food will be prepared for guests who have dietary restrictions. Also, note choices available for children. To avoid disappointment, check the policy on leftover food as well as outside wedding cakes, if desired. BYO alcohol may or may not be allowed.

 

Wedding Location

It is most convenient to have the ceremony and reception at one location. If you desire a church wedding, some venues include a chapel (like ours at Linton Gardens!). 

Many have options for outdoor ceremonies. If you prefer two locations, consider the expediency and logistics of moving your entire bridal party and guests from one location to the other. 

 

Bridal party

Your wedding venue should have a preparation area, adorned with large mirrors, for the bride and her bridal party. The space should serve all of your needs. Some prep areas may even include overnight accommodation. Don’t forget to inquire about facilities available to the groom and groomsmen.

 

Wedding Accommodation in Central Coast

Undoubtedly, some of your guests will require overnight accommodation. The venue may offer  rooms or provide transportation to nearby hotels. Take advantage of all guest services. If your guests are happy, you will be too!

Thinking of getting married on the Central Coast and searching for your wedding venue?

Here’s what some of our happy brides and grooms have said about Linton Gardens:

 

“Linton Gardens was such a wonderful wedding venue for our Central Coast wedding. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and the staff are wonderful. 

Terry was such a great help with planning and communication was quick and easy. 

The packages available include so much for such a low price (especially compared with other wedding venue prices) and what is included takes out a lot of the planning because you get so much in it. 

We were supposed to have our ceremony in the garden and our reception in the marquee but unfortunately we had extremely bad weather so had to make the decision to move everything indoors the day prior. 

The staff did this so willingly and quickly and were so helpful throughout the process.” 

Rebecca L. 

 

“No words could describe just how incredible our wedding day was! Terry is the most kind hearted person who will do anything to make sure you have the perfect day! The reception area has recently been renovated and looks beautiful! I would highly recommend this place for a Central Coast wedding! Food was amazing and all our guests loved every single minute and couldn’t have anything bad to say about the place!
