With so many romantic locations to choose from, it can be hard to decide where to host your large wedding. So if you're looking for an unforgettable venue that will wow your guests, check out our list of the best large wedding venues in Sydney. From historic mansions to lush gardens, there's something for everyone!

Per person packages for large weddings in Sydney are between $32 and $150pp. Minimum spend options start at $1000 and can reach $10000. Prices will vary depending on the size of the venue and the size, duration and standard of your event.

March and November are typically the most popular time to get married in Australia.

For the most part, guests will be responsible for booking and paying for airfare, hotel rooms, and other additional expenses, like food or shopping. Bridesmaids, you'll be expected to pay for your hair, makeup, and formalwear. Groomsmen, you'll have to shell out for your tuxes and grooming.

June, September, and October are considered the best months for a wedding. June, traditionally, is the most popular month to get married, simply because of the mild weather. With that being said, there's no wrong time to get married to the love of your life (though it does help to have good weather).

November (spring) and March (autumn) are the most popular months to get married, hosting 12% of Australia's yearly marriages. October is also quite popular, hosting 11%, followed by April (10%).
