Our wedding took place at Summerwood Country Estate & Guesthouse in Bloemfontein, I think two weeks before the wedding day I really asked God for rain the day before our wedding just so its nice and cool on the wedding day. And I have to say we were truly blessed because that's what happened. We specifically chose Summerwood Country Estate & Guesthouse because I fell in love with their forest chapel, even though I knew that we had to compare with other venues. But it was really a blessing that we went with Summerwood Country Estate & Guesthouse because we then only paid for the food for a 100 guests and the chapel. The decor was done by the venue free of charge and that really helped us to focus on other things, that need our attention.
The wedding theme was turquoise blue and white, the theme was really simple and elegant at the same time. The main focus on the wedding was really not over spending on anything but remain within our means and in budget.
Suits are really expensive, so we imported the grooms suit and actually saved a lot in that regard. In terms of the decor more is less. We wanted our bridesmaids to have something they could use even after the wedding that's why we opted for infinity dresses by Grace infinity dresses.
In a nutshell everything was perfect thanks to everyone that played a role in making the day happen.
