What is a wedding loan?

A wedding loan is a form of personal loan you can put toward the cost of your wedding. According to a Moneysmart survey, 82% of couples dip into their savings to pay for their wedding, with the average Aussie wedding costing around $36,000. So, if you're wondering "should I take out a loan for my wedding?", the answer is: you might need to.

Wedding Loans for Bad Credit

We have approved all sorts of loans for individuals with bad credit. We understand that past borrowing experiences don't always reflect the present and that lots of people understandably need a little extra help with wedding expenses.

Wedding Loans with No Credit Check

As part of our responsible lending practices, we undertake credit checks whenever somebody applies for a loan with us. But don't worry – that's not always a bad thing. We often approve individuals with bad credit, with our main goal being to ensure that you aren't adding extra stress to your life by taking out a loan.

Should I take out a loan for my wedding?

A loan for your wedding isn't the only way to pay for venue hire, entertainment, catering and more. Before considering a wedding loan, it's worth asking parents of both the bride and groom if they can contribute to your wedding funds. If not, a small personal loan for the wedding can help pay for things such as the ceremony, photographer, and even the wedding dress. You can keep costs down by going the DIY route, negotiating with vendors, and making a lists of wants versus needs.

How much can I borrow?

When it comes to wedding loans from us here at Sunshine Loans, you can borrow up to $2,000. And while that might not exactly cover the cost of venue hire, a little can still go a long way, covering the cost of flowers, a hair and makeup artist, and even the rings.
