Bonita and Ryan's glam breakfast wedding

{Picking the Venue}

My manager recommended a while back that we should go for lunch at Casa Labia in Muizenberg because it is a beautiful place and it’s not far from where we live. We decided to celebrate our one year anniversary there and were in awe of the beauty not to forget the delicious Italian food served at the Casa Labia Café. Right then and there I told Ryan that I would love our wedding to be held at the Casa Labia in future.

{The Wedding}

We wanted our families to celebrate our sacred union before God. We were blessed to have had shared this joyous milestone with them and enjoyed every second of the day!

We had no specific theme for our wedding but our wedding suppliers ensured that we had an absolutely wonderful and unforgettable day. We decided to stick to a white and cream colour palette since there were many gorgeous colours in the exquisite interiors Casa Labia.

The most memorable moment was when we said our vows. At that point in the ceremony, I felt like there was no else but God and us. It was the moment I embarked a lifelong commitment with the man that I love and that’s a moment that I will never be forgot!

{Budget Wedding Planning Tips}

  •  Make it a breakfast wedding – It can save you lots in terms of expenditure on food and drinks.
  • Consider a winter wedding – Most venues offer incredible winter rates for their wedding packages so don’t give up on your dream wedding venue, just have your wedding in winter!
  • Wait for the end of season sales – Many bridal designers and boutiques have sales on those stunning wedding gowns after the crazy wedding season ends. I have seen bridal sales starting as early as in April. I got my dress from Meylea Bridal and received a winter promotion discount, which was pretty awesome!
  • Choose a venue that doesn’t need decorating – With the Casa Labia’s beautiful character and unique décor, we did need a team to decorate the venue. Our only realy decor expense were the flowers we bought.
  • Pick a venue close to home –Cut travelling and overnight accommodation costs by picking a wedding venue near to where your family and most of your guests live.

{Advice for Brides-To-Be}

Don’t stress over the little things. It definitely isn’t worth it. You’ll realise this when you see everything fall into place on your wedding day.

I was blessed enough to have my husband help me with our wedding plans. If he had not helped me, we probably would have eloped. Don’t become too consumed with the planning of your wedding and forgetting to build the foundation for your marriage with your partner.
