Drawing up your plans

Open a Bonus Saver

Once your excitement levels allow it, you should start thinking about what sort of wedding you want. Traditional? Outdoor? Bohemian? Get an idea of the size of function you would like as well, and start getting some cost estimates.

Once you have a rough budget for your big day, you can begin to think about how you will fund your nuptials. If you think you’ll be able to save for it yourself, a good place to start is by checking out our Bonus Saver Account, which rewards good savings habits.

Apply for a Personal Loan

If you can’t wait to tie the knot, perhaps a Personal Loan is right for you? If you’re particularly hasty, we aim approve your loan in as little as 24 hours.

Use the tools available

Now that you have your rough plan and a budget in mind, it’s time to do the fun stuff. A wedding can be as big or small as you like it, but it needs to be perfect for you and your partner. You will remember this day forever, so don’t be afraid to stand firm on what you want.

Luckily, there are endless options available to us these days to help give you inspiration for your big day. Check out Instagram accounts, Pinterest boards, print magazines, websites and blogs to spark your creativity, and keep track of your favourites. If you can afford it, hiring a wedding planner may even help.

Finalise your payments and lock it down

As your wedding approaches, you will no doubt think of a million and one little things that would make the day complete. But in the lead-up, you will need to make sure that your big-ticket items are all paid for in full. The dress, the suits, the rings, the cake, the DJ, the catering and the cars.

If you find that your savings are a little stretched in the run-in, it’s good to know there’s something you can fall back on. The Greater Bank Visa Credit Card is perfect for this situation. With a competitive rate and low fees, it might be as handy on the day as concealer or a spare pair of flats for dancing in.

We've made Credit Cards simple

Great rate, low fees – everything you need and nothing you don't.

Enjoy your day!

When your wedding day finally arrives, you will be a mixture of a thousand emotions. It can be very easy to be swept up in the ceremony of it all, and have the day rush by you before you know it.

Our number one wedding tip? Don’t let this happen.

You’ve spent so much time and thought on this, your one perfect day where you join your partner in matrimony. Make sure you take the time whenever you can to stop, take a deep breath and smell the roses (or tulips, or lilies, or whatever you prefer…)
