Wedding venue selection, a major decision in your wedding planning journey. The venue sets the tone for your entire wedding and is the decision with the highest investment attached to it. So it’s important to get it right.
There are so many different Tweed Coast wedding venues to choose from. Venues on farms, hinterland venues, waterfront venues, hotels, venues that just host the reception, ceremony only locations and everything in between. We understand that it can be overwhelming trying to decide what is right for you as a couple.
So we thought we would break it down for you and share all the reasons why you should be booking Osteria Weddings to host your dream day.
1. OUR WEDDING VENUE IS ALL INCLUSIVE
Osteria is an all inclusive wedding venue. What does this mean? It means, we have one package that includes everything you need at the venue. Ceremony and reception hire, ceremony chairs, arbour, reception space, dining tables and chairs, cutlery, plates, napkins, glasses etc. So we don’t hook you in with a venue hire fee and then hit you with 20 other add-ons later. We commit upfront what the investment will be, so there’s no surprises. It’s a common misconception that DIY wedding venues are cheaper, but by the time you add all the bits and pieces necessary for your day, the costs for all inclusive is comparative, and a lot less stressful to organise!
2. OUR TEAM ARE WEDDING PROS
Being part of a hospitality group that manages multiple wedding venues, our team are experienced. Collectively across our three venues (including our waterfront sister up the road, Tweed Heads venue Ancora Weddings and our Gold Coast hinterland venue, The Acre, Boomerang Farm) our team have helped deliver over 500 weddings. There isn’t much our team hasn’t seen. Not too many issues they haven’t encountered. And none who have more passion for weddings.
3. FROM PRE WEDDING PREP TO PARTY
From the very start of the day when you’re getting ready with your crew, until you’re peeling yourself away from the dancefloor, you don’t need to leave Osteria. We have everything you need onsite. A Bridal Suite with all the facilities your hair and make up suppliers need, a private garden for your ceremony, on site photo location including our white barn doors, bougainvillea archway, the Whiskey Bar and the Lolita’s peach doors. Plus, our beautiful fairy light lit Refinery for your reception. A wedding venue that has it all. Less travel between locations means you have more time to spend with your loved ones and enjoy the party.
4. MULTIPLE CUISINES ON OFFER
We understand every couple is different and every couple has different tastes, so being able to offer multiple wedding menu options is something that’s extremely important to us. And luckily we have the wealth of experience from the hospitality professionals who created renowned restaurants like Taverna (Greek inspired menu), Osteria Casuarina (authentic Italian eatery) and Lolita’s Mexican Cantina (modern Mexican restaurant) to ensure that our menus satisfy even the most fussy foodies. You can choose from the Mediterranean inspired, authentic Italian or fresh and punchy Mexican.
5. RAINY DAY BACKUP OPTION
Weddings can be planned down to the minute with every detail considered. But planning the weather, is unfortunately not something in your control. This being the case, it’s important that your wedding has a wet weather back up option just in case. Thankfully, Osteria Weddings can easily transfer your ceremony inside the Refinery with a moments notice. The indoor ceremony is set up just inside the reception space. The curtains are let down so your reception set up remains a surprise for your guests until the big reveal.
6. YOUR KIDS ARE TAKEN CARE OF
Weddings and kids can be a tricky one to navigate. You may want some kids involved in your ceremony but when it comes to the party, you want your guests to be able to relax and have fun without having to manage behaviour, complaints and possible tantrums from little ones. Kakes & Biscuits are the perfect solution for this dilemma and we’re so lucky to have them on site at our venue. The professional team at Kakes & Biscuits will look after and entertain the kids with craft, art and creative activities until the grandparents and babysitters have enjoyed the reception formalities.
7. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
Perfectly nestled between the Gold Coast and Byron Bay, Osteria is centrally located on the Tweed Coast in Casuarina. Surrounded by an array of Kingscliff and Cabarita Beach accommodation options. Plus some of the most iconic wedding photo locations on the coast. Kings Forest, Cabarita Headland, Casuarina beach and of course the famous paperbark tree forest all within a 15 minute drive from us.
8. WE OFFER A BACKUP VENUE IN QLD
Pre 2020, when you booked a wedding venue, that was it. It was done! You didn’t need a back up plan. You could tick that job off your list without another thought. But in current times, having the option to transfer your wedding to another state is super important. We’re happy to be able to give confidence to QLD based couples knowing that they are able to transfer their wedding to our Gold Coast sister venue The Acre, if COVID restrictions means they can no longer hold their wedding with us in NSW. (Fees may apply and pending date availability.)
If you’re still not quite sure if Osteria is for you, there’s no better way to get the true feeling of what it would be like to get married at Osteria than coming to see our venue in person. Contact us here to book a venue tour.
If you can’t make it in person, we also do virtual tours and Facetime/Zoom appointments. And you can request our complete weddings kit here for more information.GET IN TOUCH WITH US
