The Top 4 Tips to Choosing a Weddings & Functions Venue in Pretoria

Congratulations, you’re getting married! Having a wedding is one of the most important and sacred events in anyone’s life, but just as it can be exciting, it can also be extremely stressful. In all the excitement and stress of planning your wedding, choosing your wedding venue will undoubtedly be one of the biggest decisions that you’ll ever make together as an engaged couple.

As a bride and groom, this is your once-in-a-lifetime and you want the wedding venue to live up to all that you’ve ever dreamed it would be. As an event that holds so much meaning, you want it to be picture-perfect, which is why your choice should never be taken lightly. With so many country clubs, gourmet cafés, halls and restaurants scattered throughout Pretoria – how do you know you are choosing the right venue? If you’re not sure where to hold your wedding, we’ve got some top tips to help you decide.

  1. Decide on the Type of Wedding You Want and Set a Budget
Are you thinking of having an intimate wedding with a few close friends and some family members, or are you thinking of throwing a big lavish production? First and foremost, decide on the type of wedding that you want and then set a budget. As one of the most important days of your life, a wedding can also be the most expensive. In fact, weddings are renowned for breaking budgets and with so many things to pay for, such as the wedding dress, rings, catering and bar, flowers and décor, DJ, bridal suite and honey moon – the last thing you want is to have to fork out big on a weddings venue that you’re not even crazy about. Whether you’re having a small intimate wedding or a large lavish one, always keep in mind that the amount spent on the function venue and caterer alone should not exceed over half your entire wedding budget.  
  1. Location, Location, Location
When it comes to choosing a wedding and function’s venue – it’s all about the location! Although this may be your wedding, you also need to consider your guests’ needs. Firstly, consider how far your guests will have to travel and then consider that they will need to travel back, possibly intoxicated! Distance and safety should be your deciding factors. However, if you’re going all out and making an entire night of it, then do make sure that your venue can offer you stylish, yet affordable accommodation.
  1. Indoor or Outdoor Function Venues
Two huge deciding factors in choosing your venue should be based around the number of guests that it can accommodate and whether you’re looking for an indoor venue or an outdoor venue. Space is vital to the ambience of your celebration, so do make sure that your venue of choice can accommodate your guests comfortably. While some wedding and function venues in Pretoria are perfect for warm weather, others are favourable for cold weather. So with this in mind, choose a venue that can give you the option of an indoor wedding chapel or an outdoor ceremony venue under the stars or under a gazebo. The key to a successful wedding is always preparation, so before you make that million dollar decision, enquire about their indoor air conditioning and heating, and very importantly, find out what their outdoor rain plan is.
  1. Opt for a Full-service Wedding Venue
Weddings are super expensive and while there are many wedding and function venues in Pretoria that only offer the venue and catering, there are some venues that go all out and offer it all. If you’re a bride arranging your entire wedding on your own, then it will be to your advantage if your wedding venue of choice can assist you with the reception décor, music, cake, catering, cocktails, barmen and waiters. You may even find some venues that offer a full-service wedding venue that includes a wedding co-ordinator.
