Wedding season is in the air, and brides from all over Gauteng will say their “I do’s” and enjoy the perfect summer honeymoon. For any bride-to-be, few things are as important as choosing the location and setting to say your vows. If you’re reading this article, then you’re probably not the only bride-to-be rushing to book a spectacular ceremony venue in and around Mpumalanga.
Fortunately, the number of wedding venues in Mpumalanga available today is dizzying—from country clubs and banquet halls, villas and wine estates, and restaurants to some of Mpumalanga’s spectacular locations that boast open views of rolling hills and lush valleys with wildlife. As a result, you need a few vital tips to ensure you choose a place that offers it all—because you should not lift a finger on one of the most important days of your life.
You want a venue that can accommodate your guest list. So, before you start your location hunt, narrow down your search by deciding on the number of guests who will attend your big day. Not only will your guest list help you find a suitably sized venue that can cater to the dietary needs, of the guests, but it will also help you determine your budget—which is essential for wedding planning.
Your perfect wedding venue needs to have a wow factor that’s unique to your vision, but venues vary. Whereas some provide everything in one location, like the chapel, catering, reception and accommodation, others only cater to the after-party. To begin your planning process, draw up a shortlist of places that offer what you want. Maybe you want to say your vows in a chapel within walking distance to your reception venue or under blue skies set against a backdrop of a waterfall or rolling hills. Whatever your needs, visit only the places that tick your boxes and budget.
There are two types of wedding packages: full-service and those where you bring your vendors, decorators and suppliers. Most couples opt for full-service as this removes the stress of weeks of planning, booking and making multiple payments. A full-service venue is all-inclusive, which means they provide table and chairs, crockery and cutlery, servers and bar staff, chef-prepared catering, and the décor, DJ, makeup artist, photographer, videographer and more.
With so many wedding venues throughout Gauteng and Mpumalanga, you would think choosing one would be simple, but it never is. As a result, it is wise to consider a venue renowned for hosting wedding ceremonies, celebrations, and honeymoons. Wedding planners charge high rates for their services, but you can avoid this by choosing an exclusive wedding venue with experienced planners that tailor-make your big day.
