How to Choose a Wedding Venue in Gauteng

Planning a wedding is very exciting and it’s important that you select a wedding venue in Gauteng as soon as possible to secure your wedding date, as most wedding venues will require you to book your space at their establishment well in advance.

Tips for Selecting Your Wedding Venue

Before you start visiting various venues and getting prices, you will need to determine the following factors:

  • Ceremony. If you have not decided where the ceremony will be held, some wedding venues can provide you with a place to hold your ceremony and reception all at one location.
  • Budget Factor. The cost of a wedding can vary greatly depending on the wedding venue itself, if you’re serving a meal or not, the number of guests, flowers and so forth. Determine what kind of wedding you are hoping to achieve within your budget by including the number of courses for meal, open or cash bar and number of guests. Also, keep in mind that all the little extras will add up – including specialized table linens, centrepieces and your choice of live band or DJ for the evening.
  • Reception Guests. You should have a rough idea how many guests you will be inviting to the wedding. Choose a wedding venue with an area that is big enough to accommodate your guests comfortable but not so oversized that it looks like it is half empty.
  • Location. Ideally, the wedding venue should be conveniently located for your guests. If it is too far away, you will have to consider overnight accommodation arrangements for your guests.

With a little bit of research, you’ll find the perfect wedding venue in Gauteng for your special day. Contact Idle Winds, an exclusive wedding venue, for more information.
