What is a wedding loan?

A wedding loan is a form of unsecured personal loan that you can use to finance your big day. It provides you with the cash you need to book a venue, hire a DJ, buy a dream bridal gown, hire caterers, and more.

According to Moneysmart, the average Australian wedding costs $36,200. CANSTAR puts the figure even higher, at $65,482. Either way, there’s no escaping the fact that hosting a wedding can be a very expensive exercise. However, with a low rate RateSetter loan you don’t need to give up on enjoying the wedding of your dreams just because you can’t pay for it all at once.

A wedding loan works just like a personal loan. That is, you borrow a specific amount of money and then pay it back with interest over an agreed term. To qualify for a loan, you must submit an application and agree to a credit check that takes into account your borrowing history, employment status, credit score, and other factors.

What can I use it loan for?

Your loan can be used to fund anything you need for your big day (and beyond). Borrow for:

  • Wedding rings / engagement rings
  • Wedding venue hire
  • Flowers / decorations
  • Hair and makeup
  • Wedding catering
  • Wedding dresses / bridesmaids dresses / formal wear
  • Photography / videography
  • Wedding car hire
  • Wedding cakes
  • Wedding music

How much does it cost?

A wedding loan generally has three components that that affect the total cost over the life of the loan:

  • the interest rate (this may be fixed or variable)
  • a one-time establishment fee
  • ongoing fees (such as account maintenance fees, late payment fees, and other charges)

These costs may be displayed to you as a comparison rate that represents the total effective price of a loan. This allows you to compare different loans to find the one that best suits your needs.
