Perth’s Popular Wedding

Accommodation

Most bridal couples are so focused on finding nuptial locations, car hire, catering and reception venues that they forget one other important factor when preparing for a wedding – accommodation.

Choosing accommodation doesn’t necessarily mean picking where to stay for your honeymoon. Some people, for whatever reason, are unable or don’t want to do their wedding day preparations at their home or place of residence, and no one wants to impose on family or friends. So the next best thing is to find the perfect hotel, resort or lodge where you, along with your bridal party if you so wish, can spend the night (or two or maybe even three) before the big day and get ready in the morning.

A lot of hotels offer wedding packages that include accommodation options, and most of my suggestions below do that, so not only can you prepare for your wedding at the venue, you can also spend the first night or two with your new wife or husband and truly relax after months of organising and planning.

Alternative Accomodation – AirBnb

Alternatively, if you’re not wanting the hotel or resort experience, there are other options available at any budget. AirBnB stays are an even easier way to ensure you get the most out of your wedding day, especially when there is a choice to rent out an entire house that guarantees room for a large bridal party.

Here I’ve compiled an AirBnB Wishlist with some options in East Victoria Park, Cottesloe, and Subi.
