Top Tips to Choosing Wedding Venues in Gauteng for Your Big Day

Location, location, location! Besides the dress, the man and the ring, location is the most important part of every wedding. It is every woman’s desire to have the ultimate wedding on her Big Day, a day that will be remembered forever. However, there are so many wedding venues in Gauteng to choose from, where does a bride-to-be begin?  While you should always choose a wedding venue that compliments the ambience, custom and theme of your of your big day – before you rush out to view all of the wedding venues in Gauteng, here are some valuable top tips to think about when choosing wedding venues in Gauteng:

  • # Tip 1 Consider and Asses Your Budget – budget is a subject that every couple gets anxious about, it can be a huge deal breaker. Unless the venue of your choice is all inclusive of everything, always remember that the amount spent on the venue and caterer alone should not exceed over half your entire wedding budget. While no bride wants to turn into a “Bridezilla” on her wedding day, no bride wants to have to pay more than what they agreed to when they signed for the wedding venue. Ask many questions to avoid any hidden costs that throw your budget out, and get it in black and white.  
  • # Tip 2 Accessibility of the Location – Gauteng is a big place and the last thing that you want is to have your guests getting lost to the wedding venue or even worse, driving far to get home while intoxicated. While many wedding venues in Gauteng do not offer accommodation, choosing a wedding venue that offers your guests the option of staying overnight is always a valuable option to have.
  • # Tip 3 Decide on the Number of Guests – a huge deciding factor in choosing a wedding venue should be based around the number of guests that it can accommodate. Space is vital to the ambience of your celebration, so do make sure that your venue of choice can accommodate your guests comfortably, as there is nothing worse than a venue with tables sitting on top of each other, not leaving much room to move freely or dance.   
  • # Tip 3 Do You Want to Say Your “I dos” Indoors or Outdoors – whether it is summer, spring, autumn or winter, Gauteng weather is renowned for being unpredictable. While some wedding venues in Gauteng are favourable for cold weather, others are perfect for warmer weather. Choose a wedding venue that can give you the option of getting married in an indoor chapel or an outside area, and then move over to an indoor or outdoor reception area. Furthermore, find out what their outdoor rain plan is and if they have indoor air conditioning or heating.  
  • # Tip 4 Choose a Full Service Wedding Venue – while there are many wedding venues in Gauteng that only offer the venue and catering, there are some venues that offer it all. If you do not have a wedding planner and are doing it all solo, then it will be a huge advantage if your wedding venue of choice offers everything – from the chapel, reception décor, music, cake, catering, cocktails, barmen and waiters, to the indispensable services of an in-house wedding coordinator.
