The Perfect Outfit For a Byron Bay Wedding

If you haven’t yet found the perfect outfit for the special day, you’ll be amazed at the diversity of independent boutiques and fashion houses that grace Byron Bay. You’ll have no problem sourcing shoes, jewellery, hats, sunglasses, lingerie, make-up or bags.

The gorgeous Anna Middleton Boutique stocks sophisticated, high-end labels. Life of Byron also stocks a selection of women’s fashion labels, along with a diverse range of jewellery and accessories.

Men aren’t forgotten either. Driftlab and Unplugged both provide funky urban menswear, while Anna Middleton Boutique stocks a small range of elegant, classic menswear.

For perfumes, makeup and aftershave, visit the wonderful world of the Madame Butterfly Beauty Bar.

There are ample places to get your hair done (including three barber shops), as well as your nails, a pedicure, waxing, tanning, make-up, massage, a facial … or teeth whitening.

The Perfect Present for a Byron Bay Wedding

If you haven’t yet found that ideal gift for the happy couple (or their wedding registry at MYER bores the pants off you) then wait until you get here and browse the unique gift shops, emporiums and local artists’ outlets in town and in the Byron Bay Arts & Industry Park.

For something truly special, the inspirational sculptures at Zakay Glass Gallery are not to be missed. Or for something more practical – be it top-quality appliances, homewares, or a manual espresso machine – the Byron Bay Trading Company is well worth a visit. A visit to Private Life is a treat in itself and is certain to provide some gorgeous wedding gift options. Nearby, Reflections of Byron has an extensive range of gift and home wares.

How about treating the happy couple to something unique – the chance to paint a portrait of each other! At the Byron Bay Art Studio in just three hours they will create something truly amazing to take home. It's also a great activity for the whole wedding party or for wedding guests.

The Perfect Extra-Curricular Activities for a Byron Bay Wedding

While the wedding party oversees the menu changes and checks the weather report you can get busy doing all the things they can’t.

Why not try the flying trapeze, kayak with the dolphins, go hot-air ballooning, learn to surf, test your nerves with sky diving, play golf, dive, bushwalk, fish, visit a Byron Bay nudist beach, learn to fire twirl, join in a local cultural activity or even just catch a film at one of the cinemas in town. For more details, check out our Activities Byron Bay page.

One of the real joys of being away from home for a few days is the excuse to eat out – a lot. Peruse our Dining Byron Bay page for details on local cafes and restaurants to explore. Be tantalised by the succulent array of mouth-watering creations crafted from fresh local produce and arranged by some of Australia’s finest chefs.

In the evening, hit the thriving Byron by Night scene. Pubs, clubs, theatres and performances abound in Byron Bay and provide year-round access to world-class acts, speakers, workshops and festivals.

So no matter how long or how short your stay, if you are coming for a Byron Bay wedding be sure to make the most of this spectacular corner of the world while you are here.
