But, to deliver a day with great food, enjoyable music, high-quality photos and beautiful flowers, it can cost a lot of money. We offer loans across Australia – including Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide.

The application is simple and you’ll just be required to select the amount you’d like to borrow and the repayment time, as well as fill in some personal information, send proof of identity and your most recent 90 day bank statement.
Once we receive the information from you, someone from our team will call you to confirm your application details. If your application is approved, we’ll contact you to confirm the approval and send your contract. We’ll also get your bank details so we can send over the money.
Once you’ve been approved, you should receive the money by the end of the day. However, most customers receive the money even sooner. From here you’ll be able to spend the money on what you please – and you will just need to meet the contracted monthly repayments (weekly, fortnightly or monthly).
What is a wedding loan?
A wedding loan is a small to medium loan amount that is given to customers to cover costs involved with their wedding day. This loan can bridge the gap between what you’ve saved for the day, and what you need to pay for. Or, it can cover the entire cost of a small ceremony and/or reception.
Some overheads involved with a wedding day include wedding dresses, wedding rings, flowers, photographers, videographers, food, drinks, administration costs and wedding cakes. Our wedding loans can be used to cover some or all of these costs.
Our wedding loans are classified as unsecured personal loans with a competitive interest rate. This means that you won’t need to put any security or collateral up for your personal loan, and you will have the money deposited into your bank so you can pay the vendors directly yourself.

What wedding related things can I use an unsecured personal loan for?
For some women, the dress they wear on their big day is the most important thing to them. However, the price of wedding dresses can range greatly, with some designer gowns costing in the five-digit range. Your wedding day is (hopefully) a once in a life time event, so if you’re dreaming of a specific style of dress, don’t skimp out and allow yourself the luxury of wearing what you want with a wedding day loan.
Wedding rings are meant to be worn by both partners for the rest of their life and a special ring like this should be of high quality. Our wedding loans can help cover the costs of both rings.
Most larger weddings will require the use of a wedding planner, and all legal weddings will have some charges to make the union official. These wedding expenses can be paid for with a personal loan, and the amount can gradually be paid back after you’re married.
Flowers and decor
Almost every fairy-tale wedding has a large number of flowers, lighting and decor. If you’ve always dreamt of a magical looking day, then allow yourself to live out your fairytale and go ahead and splurge on some beautiful decor with our wedding loan.
Food and drink
Most Australian weddings tend to have pretty relaxed free flow bars! If you love a drink and want your friends to enjoy good quality free flow alcohol at your wedding, then you’ll likely be looking at high costs of around $100 a head (or more) for drinks alone. On top of this, delicious food is usually charged by head too, and food and drink can be one of the most expensive parts of the wedding day. Make sure your day is memorable and exactly what you want by choosing your favourite food and drink vendors, and not worrying about the costs with our wedding loan.
Photographers and videographers
Looking back at your wedding day for decades after the event is a very special thing. The day can be properly captured through the use of experienced and talented photographers and videographers.
Furthermore, because of the pandemic, you may not be able to invite all of your loved ones to your special day. Through the use of good photography and videography, you can stay share the event with them. If your budget doesn’t stretch enough for both professionals, you can still engage their services using a wedding loan with us.
Along with food and drink and decor, venue hire can take a huge chunk of money out of your wedding budget. Most venues have high charges for weddings and have an additional event fee on top, this covers accidental damage, as well as additional staff that’s required the maintain the venue (eg gardeners or cleaners). Holding your wedding at a venue you love will ensure that your day is very special. Our unsecured loans can help cover these costs.
There’s no debate that wedding days can be very expensive. After you’ve dished out a lot of money for the big day, you might not have too much left to spend on your honeymoon. But, your honeymoon is a celebration of the love you share with your partner, and is a special time that you can spend together with just the two of you. So, if you don’t have enough money to enjoy a great honeymoon, take out a wedding loan and pay the balance back gradually.
