Summer Weddings on the Tweed Coast!

Summer on the Tweed Coast is always something pretty special. With warm, breezy days, long balmy nights and a buzzing local atmosphere, it’s easy to see why so many holidaymakers flock to our region to soak up the summer months.

Our blissful Tweed Coast summers also just so happen to be one of the best times of the year to tie the knot. Not only can couples take advantage of our premium venues offering oceanfront and hinterland views, lush gardens and incredible outdoor spaces, but the summer season can also lead to huge savings and a more cost-effective celebration.

As we say goodbye to the warmer weather and enter the cooler months, we thought now would be the perfect time to look back on our most recent summer wedding season here on the Tweed. If you’re currently trying to lock down a date for your own big day, here are just a few of the major benefits that come hand-in-hand with a summer wedding!

Our picturesque summer weather

One of the biggest draw-cards for couples planning a summer wedding on the Tweed Coast is our unparalleled warm weather!

Summer is without a doubt the warmest season of the year for our coastal location. Just last summer we experienced average temperatures of 24 degrees in December and February and 25 degrees in January.  With cool off-shore breezes helping to moderate our temperatures, summer weddings truly give your guests the chance to soak up the sunshine and enjoy their time on the Tweed. And although many people may perceive summer as our wet season, we actually only experienced 7 days of rain during January – all under 4mm, and generally falling overnight.

Daylight savings during summer also allows you to take advantage of our later sunsets and warm, balmy nights, with temperatures rarely falling below 20 degrees in the evening. If you’ve been dreaming about an al-fresco dinner under the stars, an intimate garden ceremony or a relaxed cocktail reception, summer would have to be your ideal season. No jackets or heaters required!

Our buzzing summer atmosphere

During the summer season, our small coastal towns come alive with a buzzing holiday atmosphere. There is truly never a better time of the year for your guests to explore our beautiful region and build the perfect itinerary for their stay on the Tweed!

From lazy days relaxing by the beach to day trips driving through the hinterland, there is no shortage of things to do and places to see during our Tweed Coast summers. Guests can enjoy sunset drinks by the ocean at award-winning restaurants like Taverna and Halcyon House, soak up the live music at our local pubs and taverns, or head to the many pop-up markets that take place over the summer months.

With plenty of local accommodation options to take advantage of, your guests can easily turn your wedding day celebrations into a weekend getaway or extended summer holiday. We can’t think of a better way to wind down the year with loved ones!

Summer wedding specials

Summer is actually low season here on the Tweed Coast, which makes it one of the most cost-effective times of the year to plan a wedding.

If you’re hoping to make the most out of your wedding budget, summer allows you to take advantage of any special rates or discounted packages between the months of December and February.  Similar to the discounted prices commonly offered for mid-week or winter bookings, there are some great savings to be made throughout the summer season, too – potentially saving you thousands off the total cost of your day.

You’ll find many wedding suppliers are more than happy to offer discounted rates for what is traditionally a quieter time of the year. We know that the suppliers at both Osteria and Ancora partnered up with the venues for our recent Tweed Wedding Trail event to offer special discounts for any bookings made over the summer months (and word has it, these specials are still running!).

With many other Tweed Coast venues and suppliers also offering seasonal rates, make sure you enquire about any special pricing for summer weddings to help you maximise your budget.
