It’s finally happened! Someone got on one knee, there was crying, clapping, kissing and fireworks, but now reality has hit and you are freaking out about where to start planning the biggest day of your life? Calm down, it’s all good! Before you start panic-marathoning every episode ever of ‘Say Yes To The Dress’, we’ve compiled a few things to get you started. Start with choosing your Brisbane wedding reception venue  – it will guide your menu, guest list and more, and here’s how to pick…


You need something that’s close to everything, and accessibility is key. As much as a reception in the countryside would make a pretty background for the Insta pics, it’s not going to be much fun or affordable for your guests to travel an hour out to the sticks. You need somewhere that is easy to get to and stumbling distance from busses, trains and taxi ranks once your friends and family have gone to town on the open bar. The Fox makes the perfect location for your wedding reception, with our close proximity to transport, South Bank, and the Brisbane city center.

Food style

Next is figuring out what food style suits your party best. At The Fox we have several catering formats including banquets, stand up functions, sit down and buffet. So no matter your taste, we can insure that everyone is well fed and fuelled to dance the night away. Choose from a selection of canapés for your cocktail wedding, or delight in an alternate drop of succulent meats, perfectly seasoned vegetables or fresh seafood.

Who to invite

Thirdly is who to invite. Whether you’re after an intimate occasion with just your closest family and friends, or you want all 500 of your Facebook friends to share your special day, we have space for everyone. Our eight different function areas can accommodate any party size in a beautiful environment, with all the spaces having their own unique personality and flair. From the bespoke trimmings of the Boudoir to the unrivaled views from Dandys Rooftop we have a space to suit every style and budget.

No matter what, the Fox is the ultimate wedding venue in Brisbane, and we would be honoured to share your special day with you. For more information on spaces and packages check out our functions pack or stop by for a squiz of our unique spaces.
