Weddings are a joyous occasion and these days you are not confined to the four walls of your childhood church. There are so many different types of wedding venues made available to brides and grooms now. Today, the sky is the limit – and that may even be to low for those skydiving enthusiasts.
However, before we even start looking at the types of wedding venues available, it is important to think of a type that best suits your style, budget and number of expected guests. Always consider all your options before settling. Choose one that is a reflection of you and your significant other.
Beach weddings provide a beautiful setting for those who want an informal ceremony and for their guests to feel relaxed. A beach wedding has the ability to take the stress off of the big day and let everyone focus on what is most important – the bride and groom.
In South Africa, we are lucky enough to be home to one of the largest wine routes in the world. These Dutch inspired estates with mountain backdrops are more than the perfect venue for tying the knot. Vineyard weddings add a certain class and sophistication to the day. Add some good wine and food and nothing can go wrong. Because there are so many wine farms in the Cape, you also have the choice between a more off-the-beaten track wine farm for a more intimate day or a larger, more renowned one to really make a big splash.
Garden weddings are perfect for those warmer spring and summer months of the year. Who needs flower bouquets when you have a full garden showing off for you? Garden weddings give couples the opportunity to become more rustic with their wedding theme – very popular these days. Outdoor garden venues are relaxing and encourage guests to kick back with a picnic basket, funky photo booth props and dance into the evening. However, it is important to make sure that there is some form of shelter for your guests – weather in the country can be unreasonable even on the sunniest of days.
Hotels and Resorts
Hotel weddings are another addition to the types of wedding venues. Depending on the type of hotel or resort, it can provide a certain elegance and practicality to the big day. Many hotels and resorts have wedding and conference facilities as well as the staff to cater for all your needs for the big day – taking the stress off of you to sit back and enjoy your day.
