Top Tips For Planning An Affordable (But Still Fancy) Wedding

So, you’re getting married?! How exciting! From the moment he says “Will You” to when you say “I Do” there are a million and one things to consider.

Planning a wedding can be a stressful and nerve-wracking experience. Yet there are many ways to ensure that it doesn’t overwhelm you.

First and foremost, its important to choose a venue that can be your base of operations for everything – and when it comes to hosting a special event, The Fox Hotel ticks every box.

Pre-Wedding Garden Party On The RoofTop

With capacity for an intimate gathering of 20 right up to guest lists of 360 people, Dandy’s Rooftop is a superb location to kick off your wedding celebrations.

Perched high above the Brisbane skyline, Dandy’s Rooftop features a dedicated cocktail bar and chargrill kitchen, and can cater for smaller private parties, or be booked exclusively for larger functions. 

To make the celebrations even more special, why not create a signature cocktail which represents you and your other half? By incorporating this into a menu of simple cocktails, it’ll keep costs down, but still ensure your guests have a great time…before the actual wedding of course. 


Now, onto the ceremony…

An Intimate dinner On The verandah

We’re all a bit patriotic here in Queensland, aren’t we? Well, for those of you who are wrapped up in a big Queensland-loving wedding ball, we think our Verandah Room is exactly where you need to host your special day.

Inspired by Queensland’s iconic plantation homes, The Veranda Room is fresh and vibrant, with all the hallmarks of a classic Queensland homestead. Featuring wicker furniture and statement wallpapers, the space is perfect for an occasion of this grandeur. 

French Luxury In the boudoir room

If it was your childhood dream to marry the love of your life in Paris, the city of love, but the exorbitant costs just aren’t your jam, then we’ve got just the function space for you. The Boudoir Room is a French-inspired tribute to indulgence – think heavy framed mirrors and tailored furniture, as well as stunning crystal decanters perfectly positioned around the room to complete the look. 

Another ideal space for smaller weddings and other functions, The Boudoir Room will lay the perfect backdrop for a night of french luxury as you say ‘I do’ to your Mon Cheri. Bisous!


If you’re already 110 per cent sure your guest list is going to be small, why not opt for a classy cocktails and canapés function? Not only is it an ideal event for smaller, more intimate events, but it’s also ridiculously easy to organise – it’s a win win for everyone, really. 

Now, when it comes to choosing the right venue for such an affair, you simply can’t go past the Atrium Room. Located on the ground floor of the Fox Hotel, the Atrium is a perfect space for smaller parties. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle, you and your guests can enjoy an exclusive bar and plenty of seating.   

To make the whole process even simpler, we have a variety of function packages and menus on offer, designed with the flexibility to cater for people en masse, or just a few of your closest family and friends – the choice is yours. 


When it comes to planning a wedding, sometimes pre-planned function spaces don’t quite do the job, and that’s okay! If you feel like this is you, then our Blank Canvas space is the perfect place to say ‘I do’. 

From the moment you step into the space, you’ll be able to visualise your dream wedding, and with the help of the incredible functions team at The Fox Hotel, your dream wedding will become a reality.
