Parting Notes

Summer beach weddings in Melbourne are a great idea, since it’s quite warm and the area experiences little rainfall during these months. You don’t have to go to the Sunshine Coast for a great beach wedding, Melburnians! Stunning beach wedding venues are just minutes away from the city, and guests who are flying in will be able to attend easily, since the international airport is just a half hour away from the city centre and most hotels.
