At First Class Functions we L.O.V.E weddings. And, after 25 years in the business, we know how to deliver your perfect stress free wedding day. Whether you know exactly what you want your special day to look like or don’t know where to start – we can help you create your dream day.
Now that some of the excitement of your engagement (yippee!!) has calmed down, lets get to the next stage of planning your special day.
For many planning a wedding can be overwhelming. That’s why a planning coordinator can be one of the best decisions you make. They can take the stress, the confusion and the hassle both in planning before hand and then on the day for calming those last minute butterflies (everyone has them!).
So how do you start?
At First Class Functions we start our planning with a consultation at our gorgeous, comprehensive, custom designed wedding showroom. We’re talking arbours, aisle carpets, photo galleries, chairs, linen and even an interactive centrepiece set up where you can work with your stylist to create the perfect look at your reception. And did we mention the best part is we do this over a glass of champagne?
We promise this will be pain free! Even for the grooms.
For overseas and interstate couples, we can start with phone, email and Skype to capture an understanding of your style and vision. Or help you create one if you are still trying to decide.
After your consultations with us, we provide a detailed proposal with images so you can be confident you know what your wedding will look like from ceremony to reception. That’s it! Easy, huh? For some reason many wedding companies seem to make this more stressful and confusing that it might already feel like.
Our relationships across the Sunshine Coast mean that we can recommend and/or book the best suppliers, the best venues, the best after party locations, best transport and even the best places to get amazing photos! We don’t take commissions from anyone we recommend. Our motto is, if WE wouldn’t use them – then we would never advise our couples to use them either.

We offer a number of Planning and coordination packages to suit your needs from on the day ‘keep me calm’ packages to the full ‘do it all’ packages. Take a look at the below for more information.
'Keep Me Calm' On the Day Coordination
And breathe….because with this package, First Class Functions has got you covered for your ceremony. We will make sure your soon to be husband or wife is in the right position waiting for you, that their button hole is on, bouquet is straight, the celebrant is ready and the guests are seated ready and waiting.
We will then guide you into the right spot and queue the music. A quick check of hair/suit/makeup/dress and we will send you on your way to become officially married. A coordinator to ensure the smooth running of your wedding ceremony.
We will oversee the ceremony set up, greet and seat your family and guests, liaise with the celebrant, cue musicians or play music and assist the bridal party with their entrance.
Our coordinator is also happy to serve refreshments before and after the ceremony and then escort your guests to either the reception or boat cruise.
Our coordinator will always have their emergency bridal kit on hand for any of those last minute hiccups.
