Why fund a wedding with an Unsecured Personal Loan?

Set an end-date
Every repayment reduces what you owe and gets you closer to paying off the cost of your big day.
Borrow between $2k-$50k
Borrow up to $40,000. Use the funds on whatever you need to make the occasion one for all to remember.
Flexible repayments
Choose a loan term of 1 - 7 years to suit your circumstances and plan ahead with weekly, fortnightly or monthly repayments. Plus repay early if you need to without incurring break costs (an early repayment fee will apply).
Redraw if you need to
Redraw money on variable rate loans from the amount you've repaid if you need to, provided you're at least $500 ahead on your repayments. Each request is subject to approval and a fee.1

How could this loan be useful for planning a wedding?
