Find Your Tribe Blog Highlights
editor’s note Gal pals, we have some exciting new developments at The Bride’s Tree HQ. Firstly we have developed not one, but two incredible brand new resources to assist you in your wedding planning on the Sunshine Coast. We have been working tirelessly on a fully comprehensive, nothing-left-unanswered venue guide in the form of a gorgeous ebook. Seriously, I was a super nosy parker and quizzed each and every venue we personally hand-picked to find out everything from minimum and maximum numbers to noise restrictions. You can enquire with each venue straight from the ebook from your computer or mobile device, or even link directly to Maps to navigate your way there.

ADVERTISE Please email info@thebridestree. com.au to request our media kit if you are interested in advertising in our magazine or on our blog.

We chose only local venues we absolutely adore and know provide fantastic service, so you can rest assured if they are in our venues ebook, they are completely TBT approved. Our other new resource is completely free and loads of fun – we’ve created a Facebook Group where Jenny and I personally answer your questions, and you can also interact with other Sunshine Coast brides. Make sure you come join our tribe if you haven’t already! With love,
