Sydney Bridal Expo @ Darling Harbour
21st & 22nd May 2012

Congratulations, to all the brides and grooms we met last weekend at the Sydney Bridal Expo and all the best with your upcoming weddings.  A big thank you to all the brides and grooms who registered their wedding events with Venuezi.com.Thank you Sydney Brides & Grooms

With your help we registered over $2 million of wedding enquiries as well as hens and bucks nights.

It was a non-stop 2 days of talking about the most exciting online service to hit the wedding industry this year.  Venuezi was what most brides and grooms were talking about over the weekend.  Everyone couldn’t believe venuezi.com is a free service that helps you find the wedding venue of your dreams within the budget you have set.

This is just some of the positive feedback we got over the weekend on using venuezi.com…

Amy from Concord West said: “Venuezi is a great idea. It takes the research out of finding a venue. It is also great for other events besides weddings.”

Samantha from Brighton said: “The site is perfect for my fiancé to use as he loves doing everything online. The system is pretty easy to use too.”

Fallon from Gosford: “It is good, and great for the girls planning my hen’s night. Venuezi has a great layout. It is nice that personal details aren’t send to the venues.”

Christine from Oatley said: “the site makes it easy to find different venues and is perfect for different events besides weddings. It will be easy to use at home after the Expo.”

Michael from Springwood said: “It is simple and easy to use. It will probably save a lot of dramas and seems a better option to find different venues for our wedding. It will also be good for the boys to plan my bucks.”

Ashleigh from Alexandria: “It’s nice to be able to find and try new places. It is great for venue offers for other events like after-work drinks. It probably will help find an appropriate wedding venue.”

Lisa from Blacktown: “I’ve Googled things, but there is nothing like Venuezi out there. Venuezi should help narrow my search for a venue.”

: “Awesome! I just got engaged and it is all very overwhelming trying to find venues. It will make life easier, especially when there are so many other things to organise.”

In fact, most of the brides (and their Mums) asked me what the catch was – it was hard to convince them there was no catch – it really is as simple as registering your wedding details with venuezi and watch as Venues in your chosen location quote to win your business.

Best of all the service is free, all quotes you receive are obligation free and most importantly – the venues don’t get your contact information until unless you actually open their quote and everything is managed within your personal log-in dashboard at venuezi.com, so your personal email doesn’t get clogged with enquiries.  You know you will get a great deal using our service as we don’t take a commission from the venue for your event or get involved in your negotiations & transaction with the venue of your choice.

What more could a bride want in helping make the venue selection process as stress free and as easy as possible.  Completing the enquiry online takes about a minute and within 48 hours you are receiving quotes from multiple venues – all offering great deals to secure your wedding at their venue.

Venuezi: Lowering the stress of high cost weddings

The Sydney Morning Herald recently reported IbisWorld figures that that the Australian wedding industry has revenues of $4.3 billion and estimates the average wedding cost is $36,200.

The dress, hair and make-up, the cake, photography – all these items are just some of the necessities for the modern Aussie wedding, but by far, the wedding reception venue is going to be the largest cost couples face when celebrating their nuptials with family and friends.

As any married man or woman will tell you, the costs of everyday items double, triple or even quadruple when you mention that the flowers, cake, or photography will be for a wedding and not your 30th birthday celebration.

The Aussie wedding industry, with its revenue that rivals a pacific island’s total economic output, is a seller’s market. Unlike the stock exchange or property market that ebbs and flows, the Australian wedding industry will never be a buThe best wedding reception venuesyer’s market.

Well almost never. Venuezi, Australia’s new revolutionary online venue booking system, levels the seller’s market, by allowing venues to pitch to your wedding’s requirements. If a wedding reception venue wants your business, they’ll have to work for it.

See how it works here.

Venuezi is committed to developing a winning solution for couples searching for their ideal wedding venue. Members join Venuezi for free, posting their wedding reception requirements including date, guest numbers and space requirements anonymously. Venue partners then respond to enquiries, pitching their venue to the prospective client. Venuezi’s consumer value comes from the time and money saved from receiving multiple quotes from multiple venues from just one enquiry.

The raised emotions and high levels of stress are but a few outcomes that come with finding, contacting, visiting, and then negotiating packages with wedding reception venues. Once quotes are received through Venuezi, the customer is free to contact venues directly to follow-up their enquiry. Phone calls can be made and inspections completed in order fully satisfy the most discerning bride and groom.

Using Venuezi makes getting the best possible quote for your wedding reception venue a breeze, as the time and stress brides waste and encounter when searching for their ideal venue will lessen considerably. And who knows? Lucky couples may just find their idyllic wedding venue that they didn’t even know existed.

Venuezi.com Wedding Tips- Part 1 – Things to plan for as early as possible…

Here are some things you’ll want to plan for as early as possible before your wedding

  • Determine the source of funds for your wedding as well as a budget for how those funds will be spent.
  • Decide on a maid of honor, best man, bridesmaids, groomsmen, along with ushers.
  • Develop a budget tracking method.
  • Start to plan the guest list by carefully choosing families, relatives, close friends to common friends.
  • Will you include children in the wedding? If yes, plan their recreational activities to keep them entertained!
  • Find your perfect wedding and reception venue and reserve your date – visit venuezi.com to make your life easier.
  • Select and reserve the band or DJ of your preference for the date of your reception.
  • Take into account any upcoming events among your family and friends or perhaps any huge events that take place in your city before you choose a date.
  • If you are planning an outdoor wedding, consider the time of year and the place you live. Sometimes hot weathers are an invitation to mosquitoes, beetles and other painfully annoying insects! You sure don’t want to be screaming your vows while looking to hit that one mosquito paving its way to your Wedding Cake!
  • Climate in some parts of the country can really have an effect, not just on your wedding day plans, but on honeymoon travel as well. Consider this as you make your plans.
  • Keep records of all orders placed such as invoices paid, amounts still outstanding, and general accounting records of your entire wedding in whatever way is most convenient and natural for you.
