Alpine Valley Getaways offers a wide range of Bright cottages and holiday homes for groups of all sizes, in highly sought-after locations. If you are planning to celebrate your nuptials in the beautiful town of Bright, here are a few things to consider to ensure your big day is absolutely unforgettable.
Choosing the Date
Traditionally, Spring, Summer & Autumn are the most popular seasons for weddings, with many couples choosing the months from September right through to March to tie the knot. However, Bright is the perfect all-season location for a destination wedding, with sun-drenched days and crisp evenings in the summer and a misty, enchanting ambience in the colder months. One thing to keep in mind when choosing a date is to ensure you select one that is far enough in advance to give your guests time to plan and book their accommodation. Bright, Victoria is an immensely popular holiday spot all year round, so it’s essential that you give your guests sufficient notice so they can research and book their accommodation. There are also many festivals and events throughout the region attracting tourists from all over the country. If possible, try to select a wedding date that doesn’t clash with a local festival so that your guests are not limited with their Bright accommodation options.
Deciding on a Venue
Weddings in Bright can be as big or small and as formal or informal as you’d like, giving you lots of flexibility when it comes to a venue. For a casual yet stunning affair, hold your ceremony overlooking the tranquil Ovens River where your photographer can capture impressive, panoramic country images then you can move to a large country property set up with marquees for your reception. For something smaller, a private dining room at one of the amazing Bright wineries or Bright restaurants is the perfect way to go. For advice or information on any local venues, don’t hesitate to ask our team.
Planning the Menu
No matter how formal or casual you would like your wedding to be, the right food and beverages, and plenty of them, is a key factor in creating a memorable event. The Alpine Valley is renowned for its vast array of fine local produce so work with your venue or caterer to come up with a menu that showcases all that the area has to offer. From boutique beers and award-winning wines, to platters of local cheeses and meats or a gourmet barbeque – there are plenty of ways to delight your guests with sumptuous local delicacies.
Choosing the Decor
The beauty of choosing a naturally stunning location is that you need minimal decorations and styling pieces, you can let the magical setting of the location take centre stage. Work with a palette or design that ties in with the natural surroundings for an authentic feel. The ideal styling for a Bright wedding blends organic and simplistic rustic touches that connect to nature whilst utilising an understated design that enhances the already beautiful surroundings.
