WEDDING VENUE TRUMPS THE BEACH AND BUSH FOR SOUTH AFRICANS PLANNING THEIR ‘I DO’S’

Johannesburg, South Africa – February 2019: In a survey conducted by leading online gifting supplier, Box Boutique SA, respondents selected a wedding venue as their preferred destination to celebrate their special day as opposed to the beach or bush.

Where are you getting married? Engaged % of Destination Location
Abroad 3 0,32%
Beach 57 6,03%
Bush 72 7,62%
Venue 813 86,03%
Grand Total 945 100,00%

Of the 1052 survey participants, 945 of them were engaged to be married and of those, 813 selected a wedding venue as the place to say their ‘I Do’s trumping a beach, bush or International destination. Whether these results are budget based are also up for question as although more than half of the respondents planned to spend up to R100,000 on their special day, 214 participants plan on spending up to R600,000 (heads up Dads)!

Summer is the clear winner as far as the preferred season to get hitched with over half the respondents saying so followed by 175 of the respondents choosing to get married in Spring. The colder month preferences proved a little surprising though as 125 opted for a winter wedding as opposed to only 104 who have chosen to get married in the Autumn months.

Green is the most popular wedding colour followed by white and blush pink
