I DO: The Festival of Love at Narmbool will offer a drop-in wedding solution to couples at a fraction of the average cost of an n wedding.
Drop-in weddings are most recognisable in a Las Vegas chapel. But the trend to have a stress-free wedding is growing outside the famous strip.
Executives at a popular wedding venue near Ballarat thought they would provide an opportunity for couples to tie the knot at a drop-in wedding solution.
Narmbool’s Festival of Love in April will allow couples to get married at allocated times with less stress and expense at a grand location.
Narmbool functions and events sales manager Danielle Neil said there was a growing trend to have a simple wedding.
“Many couples today are wanting to get married with minimum fuss, yet want to be able to create a memorable day with their family and friends,” Ms Neil said.
“With the average wedding in costing in excess of $50,000, the Festival of LOVE at Narmbool offers less fuss than a traditional grand celebration, at a fraction of the price.”
Sovereign Hill marketing director Jennifer Ganske said drop-in weddings had filled a demand for short, yet sophisticated, celebrations.“
Their most recognisable form is the Las Vegas wedding chapel style wedding, which appeals to many couples who want stress-free celebrations,” Ms Ganske said.
“Narmbool is such a beautiful, traditional wedding venue, and we’re excited to offer this unique twist on a traditional wedding.”
The event, to be held on the day Prince Harry marries Meghan Markle, will see more than a dozen couples tie the knot.
After marrying or renewing vows, couples and up to 50 guests, can enjoy a picnic-style reception with live entertainment, vintage caravan photo booth, and food and beverages.
The $1990 wedding package includes a ceremony by an authorised marriage celebrant, photography package, bouquets and/or buttonholes for the bridal couple, and an eight-inch wedding cake.
Food and beverage packages can be tailored to a couple’s needs and budge while the picnic boxes start at $25.
Ms Neil believed this style of wedding would appeal to many couples.
“We have seen a trend in recent years where people want to go for something more simple because they may have children or financial constraints,” she said.
“We are seeing in other countries drop-in weddings are a lot more exciting. They are becoming more popular. We are trying to give it a go.”
Couples who register byApril 15will go into the draw to win wedding bands valued at $1000, donated by Gems and Jewels.
