Why a Winter Wedding is the perfect option for you…


Would you consider a winter wedding rather than get married in spring or summer? Is it too much to ask? I urge you to think again!

Not only is it more affordable to get married in winter, due to the fact that most brides want to get married in summer, but you could also use the season to your advantage by creating the most unique wedding ever. It is always funny to see how people compare the different weddings they have attended.

By getting married in Winter, you decrease the possibility of using similar decor to that used by your friends’ weddings and you give yourself the opportunity to think creatively. Not every bride is able to pull off a winter wedding that has everyone in awe. Make it a challenge, in-fact encourage your groom to come up with winter wedding ideas – you’ll be surprised with his creativity and knowledge.

Another reason for getting married in winter has to do with two lovely venues beside the Vaal River, which provide scenic settings, even in the colder, drier seasons. The Riviera on Vaal Hotel and Country Club situated on a bend in the Vaal River, boasts elegant wedding venues with the river featuring as one of the resorts photographic hot-spots.
Maccauvlei on Vaal is the ideal autumn or winter wedding venue with its historic oak forest and original wooden interiors.
