If you’ve always dreamed of a glamorous affair, the Gold Coast can definitely cater. However, for the days surrounding your wedding, why not incorporate something a little bit more low-key?

Pre-wedding: Split the guys and gals and head to the bush!
It’s no secret, ladies love to lunch. So, take your girls and head into the hinterland for some delicious wine tasting and delectable cuisine. Let the boys enjoy some male bonding time and book a day on the green at one of the Gold Coast’s many picturesque golf courses.

Wedding day: Fancy Affair
Surfers Paradise has been referred to as ‘Hollywood on the Gold Coast’ and offers some world class venues to hold your glitzy affair. From five-star hotels to boutique restaurants and hideaways, you are spoilt for choice.

Recovery day: Bohemian bounce back
Take the opportunity to meet up with your guests the day after the wedding to share stories and photos. Take a picnic rug, get dibs on a barbeque and spend the morning seaside.

If sand between your toes and wind in your hair is more your thing for your wedding day, the Gold Coast offers some swoon-worthy beaches right on your doorstep. So, why not treat your guests to the natural wonders of the GC showing off what else is on offer.

Pre-wedding: Glam night out
Head out for a glam night on the town. Put on your best dress and book a limo and a VIP booth at your favourite hotspot, bottle service and all.

Wedding Day: Beach wedding
Kick off your shoes, let your hair down and get your guys in white linen. A beach wedding is the perfect low-key option for any boho babe.

Recovery day: Bush bash
Hire a mini bus and treat the remaining guests to a trip into the beautiful hinterland. Plant your crew at a lookout and spend the morning admiring the change of scenery while you catch up and debrief.



Maybe a soft, lusciously green backdrop is more your style. The GC Hinterland is just minutes from the beach and offers a completely different atmosphere for your family and friends. Spend the days surrounding your wedding taking it all in.

Pre-wedding: Beachy bliss
Invite your guests to a pre-wedding day on the beach. Get your bathers out, plan a game of beach volleyball and let everyone get to know each other before the formalities begin.

Wedding day: Hinterland escape
The rolling hills and lush greenery create such a beautiful background for your special day. Embrace the intimacy that a hinterland wedding embodies and enjoy all nature has to offer at one of the hinterland’s enchanting boutique venues.

Recovery day: High tea
For the remaining guests, head into the hustle and bustle of the Gold Coast and book a glamorous high tea. Get your heels back on and share stories over a mimosa in the morning. Whatever and wherever you have envisioned your day to be, the Gold Coast provides the perfect home. With so many options on offer you can go from barefoot bohemian to glamorous party people all within the space of a weekend!
