Wedding venue hunting.


When looking for your perfect wedding venue or wedding setting there are a few things to look for.

For some the idea to go venue hunting is exciting but it can also be overwhelming, and making a decision can be difficult.

KZN has so many beautiful options from coastal weddings to bush weddings and farm weddings. It's important though to know what suits you and what you love and don't like as a couple to narrow it down and make it a bit easier. It has become a bit of a trend to do these weekend weddings, where you have a braai with your family and friends the night before and a nice Sunday morning after the wedding. With that in mind, here are some things to think about or to look for when venue hunting.


  1. How far is the venue? Are you comfortable with a bit of a drive if it's far?
  2. Does the venue suit your style and what you have in mind for your wedding?
  3. It's important to find out before the time what the venue can offer you in their package, what they include, and what they don't include.
  4. Is there enough accommodation for your close family and friends?
  5. If you want to get married outside in a forest setting do they have a backup if the weather doesn't play along?


Knowing these 5 things, make a list of at least 3 to 5 venue options you really love. If you have contacted them already regarding pricing options

the next step would be to schedule a time to go and view the venue.


Booking your dream wedding venue is such an amazing feeling and the start to the rest of an amazing wedding planning journey
