2. Basket of Thongs

Yes, thongs and for our English and American friends we aren't talking sexy undies we are talking not so sexy flip flops.  If your's in a beach wedding then leave a basket of thongs for your guests to swap their heels for.

3. The Bouquet

Australia Day Wedding Ideas

Not only are you using locally sourced Australian natives but you are also choosing flowers that can withstand the harshest of Australian conditions and therefore should look as good at the end of your wedding day as they did at the start.

4. Australia Day Wedding Manicure

6. Post ceremony game of cricket

What could be more Australian on Australia Day and one of the best ways to get your wedding guests together is to set up a game of backyard cricket. 

7. The wedding music

Who can go past Australian artists to get you from the ceremony to the last dance.

There's Angus and Julie Stone for the chilled out pre wedding drinks and of course Kylie Minogue for the dance party at the end of the night.  Ask your DJ or Band for their suggestions. For the bridal waltz we think any of these three songs would do:  

1. Angus and Julia Stone The Wedding Song

2. INXS Never Tear Us Apart

3. Nick Cave Into My Arms 

8. Guest Table Names

Think famous Australian destinations or well known Streets.  You could stick to famous Australian faces or Aussie legends, or for something pretty dedicate each guest table to different Australian flora.

9. Australian Dessert Table

Go all out with an Australian Dessert Table. Include lamingtons, pavlova (yes, I know we stole it from New Zealand) and all your favourite Australian iconic chocolates.

10. Australian themed wedding favours

There are so many good ideas when it comes to Australian themed wedding favours. Such as Aussie key rings, a small potted Australian native plant or something edible such as these gorgeous little cupcakes or a pretty lolly bag filled with your favourite Aussie treats.

11. Serve only Australia wine and sparkling wine

Serving simply good Australian wine and sparkling wine. Splurge a little for the wedding toasts and go Vintage, such as Apogee in Tasmania or Vintage Croser from South Australia.
