Make wedding planning easy with these tips from an exclusive wedding venue in Gauteng

While most women dream about planning their weddings, many don’t have the time to plan the entire day themselves. Searching for wedding venues in Gauteng, finding the perfect dress, finding a caterer and sorting out hundreds of other details can be extremely time consuming.

Drawing up a check-list of what needs to be done can help you pull off the dream wedding you have always wanted. Keep these timeline tips in mind for a breezy wedding planning experience:

  • 9-12 months before the day: Decide on a budget for the wedding and stick to it. Now is also the time to choose the actual date of the ceremony. Network with wedding planners who have contacts at various wedding venues to get the details about availability and rates. Create a wedding folder where you can keep track of all the RSVPs, payments and expenditures, booking confirmations, etc.
  • 6-9 months ahead of the day: Contact prospective photographers, florists, caterers and bands and compare quotes and packages. Register for a wedding registry at your favourite shop and arrange for bridesmaids and flower girl dress fittings.
  • 4-6 months before the day: Select and order wedding stationary. Book the honeymoon night accommodation and finalise the band, photographer and caterer. Visit your wedding venue to make sure everything is ready for your big day.
  • 24 months before the day: Choose the wedding’s Master of Ceremonies and select the wedding cake.
  • 1 week before the day: Confirm final guest total to the caterers and pay a final visit to the reception location.
