BYO Venues

Forget the city of churches, South Australia should be renamed to the city of winemakers and lovers. Let’s face it, pretty much every South Aussie knows a winemaker, brewer or has a friend with contacts in the liquor industry?

The pleasure of choosing your favourite drop for your big day, or bringing along a case of special sparkling that was gifted to you for the wedding-day toasts, is surely not too much to ask.

Plus, weddings are expensive. We get it. Everything adds up, so if you can save a few dollars here and there why wouldn’t you? The BYO beverages options are often few and far between, but we have a number of venues that offer just that. Cheers!

So here we go a list of our favourite BYO venues in South Australia, best enjoyed with a bottle of SA’s finest:

1. Aldinga Bay Bungalows, Sellicks Beach

Offering 800 sqm of manicured lawn surrounded by gardens and ocean views Aldinga Bay Bungalows truly is the perfect blank canvas for those wanting a DIY wedding. 100% BYO access allows you the option to bring in all your own beverages, catering, and decor.
