Best BYO Wedding Venues in NSW

BYO wedding venues come in two varieties. The first is BYO alcohol venues where you can bring your own drinks to be served at your wedding. The second is BYO catering venues where you can choose your own suppliers to cater your wedding, and in NSW these venues will usually allow you to bring your own drinks as well.

BYO venues are a great budget-friendly option when you’re looking for opportunities to save on wedding costs. The price per head of mobile catering trucks, drink carts, vans and caravans can be substantially cheaper than all-inclusive packages provided by the majority of wedding venues.  

If you are considering a BYO alcohol venue there are a couple of things you need to know before rushing off to Dan Murphy’s for cheap drinks on your members discount. While the below venues allow you to bring your own alcohol, it is still a requirement that they comply with RSA laws (Responsible Service of Alcohol). This means, in addition to bringing your drinks you’ll also need to have RSA trained and qualified bar staff at your wedding.

Instead of having to find & hire your own properly qualified bar staff, many BYO wedding venues make it easier for you by providing a BYO package that includes their preferred suppliers at a set cost (usually under $20 per head). With a BYO package, you simply purchase your own alcohol & drinks and deliver to the venue. The venue will then ensure your drinks are chilled and provide appropriately qualified staff to serve your guests in line with RSA requirements. 

BYO packages usually include bar staff for the duration of your wedding, a bar set up & service area, glassware, ice, washing of glassware and rubbish removal. FYI, weddings in NSW are generally required to employ 1 RSA qualified bartender per 30 guests. Some BYO wedding venues require a minimum of 2 bar staff per event.

Here's a list of wedding venues where you can BYO alcohol (and in some cases catering) in the Australian state of NSW.

Whether your wedding has 4 guests or 350, the following destination venues offer a variety of locations where you can relax and enjoy a whole weekend (or longer) celebrating with family and friends. 

The most popular wedding destinations in NSW are commonly the busier tourist places. Regions such as Byron Bay, the Hunter Valley, Blue Mountains and the South Coast are popular wedding destinations as they offer ease of planning with plenty of venues, accommodation, amenities and things to do in the area.

NSW offers several wedding destinations for couples who wish to get off the beaten track. From outback farms to secluded bush resorts, these wedding venues provide the ultimate setting for intimate weekend escapes. While some of these venues provide sufficient accommodation for the entire guest list, others may require a few of your more adventurous guests to embrace the glamping option.
