One of my Dad’s favourite lines is, “I’m not Rockefeller, I’m the other fella”. Cheesy as it is, I often find myself wanting to repeat this to wedding venue owners.

You can pick and choose from a vast array of beautiful winelands, beachfront and farmland venues which all come with a Monaco-esque price tag. For the rest of us, there’s a dreaded word otherwise known as a budget.Personally, I’m a fairly simple gal. Give me a warm beach, a few lanterns, picnicking guests and I would be overjoyed. So you can imagine my devastation when the first beach venue (along the West Coast) I enquired from came with a R25 000 venue fee!
