Emily Hardman relays her humoristic story of pulling a wedding together in five, yes five days, in the New York Times below.
She summarizes the experience and decision-making process: “… I asked myself: Will it help strengthen my marriage and the promises we made to each other? If the answer was no, I didn’t waste any more time. I now appreciate applying this to other areas of life. Is where we go to dinner eternally significant? If not, it’s not worth arguing over. Do party favors for the barbecue you’re giving matter? Probably not. Enjoy the path of least resistance. If it truly represents the most important elements of your life and relationship, put time, energy and creativity into it. If not, do yourself a favor and skip the stress.”
At Kloofzicht Lodge & Spa, brides can save up to 25% on their venue hire with last minute bookings. Super spontaneous brides who book one month in advance earn 25% discount on venue hire, while those who feel more comfortable with 4 months notice earn 10% in venue hire discount.
Knowing the planning that goes into a wedding, it is my modest opinion that brides who can put a wedding together in one week should not pay any venue hire at all – just for being so brave. Having said that, more miraculous things have happened and with our list of trusted bridal suppliers you may well be able to put it all together in one week!
