31 July 2012 – Getting married is quite exciting for many brides and grooms. That is why it is important to ensure that all the aspects of the event are well taken care of. One of the most important things you should consider is the venue of the occasion. There are many Pretoria wedding venues that you can choose from. Use a couple of tips to help you find the best place for your big day.
One of the least thought about factors is getting insurance. This will protect you in case anything happens to the venue before the event. You will get compensated equal to the amount of money you have put down for the venue. This will help you to quickly salvage the situation by finding other alternatives.
It is important to consider the drinks and food that your guests will have. If the place you are leasing serves food then you can find out what their menu and charges are. This will make your work easier if they are affordable. However, if there is no food served at the place then find an outside catering unit you can afford. A cheaper option would be to ask people you know to make the food and serve your guests.
Be careful about choosing a date for your event
Think widely when it comes to choosing a place for the event. Do not limit your options. You can consider holding your event at an amusement park, zoo or garden. Be careful about choosing a date for your event. This is because some places can be quite costly during peak seasons. Also, ask if booking any other day apart from Saturday will cost you less. Ask if there are any special offers that you can take advantage of.
It is essential to know the relevant details of the event such as how many people you are expecting and the seating arrangements. This will help you know the correct size of the room to go for. If you choose a place that is too big or too small you will be greatly inconvenienced and it could end up costing more than you would have actually paid for. Once you agree to book a certain space it may be quite hard for you to go back on the agreement especially at the last minute.
If you really like a particular place and you cannot afford the price talk to them and see if they would be willing to reduce their charges. Ask if they have any special offers at certain times. Also, it is important to ask about the terms of payment. Know how much deposit you are required to pay and how soon you are expected to pay it.
In most instances there are some charges that the service provider will not inform you about upfront. In this case it is best to always ask before you sign the contract. Ask if you will be charged for security or any generators that are put on standby or for clean up of the place after the event.
Ensure that everything is in order some days to
the event. You can take care of the details yourself or find someone to
do it for you. There are many Pretoria wedding venues to choose from so
take your time to find what is suitable for you.
