Picking your wedding venue is a huge deal! It's expensive, but it will sure set the tone for your wedding day and it is after all the "meat" in your wedding sandwich!
We understand how overwhelming this process can be, so we've decided to give you a few helpful tips on how to keep you on the right side of your dreams and your BUDGET!
To help save on your venue costs and still have your dream venue is to choose an off-peak day. Another cool idea, is to have your rehearsal dinner at your venue if the property has a restaurant (like Cavalli Estate!)
Save those coins in your piggy bank and cut transport costs out completely by having your ceremony at the same location as your reception. Vrede en Lust, Anura, Cavalli and Winery Road Forest offer this option!
Instead of spending thousands on fancy linens for each reception table, opt for your standard white table clothes and add a pretty runner across it. The runner could be fabric, greenery or even candles!
Hiring furniture can be a real pocket burner, we suggest asking your venue if you may use their couches from their restaurants or other areas on the estate. Borrow couches, sofas, chairs and tables as much as you can - having mismatched decor is a huge fashion trend at the moment!
Finally, if you want to have an eco-friendly wedding (we think this is an awesome idea!) use disposable bamboo bowls/plates for your reception food. They sure cost less and you'll be commended for looking after the environment.
