Meet Jarryd and Emma
As a Wedding DJ, and having seen hundreds of Weddings in my lifetime, I can honestly say when it's your own it is TOTALLY different. Yes, having that experience made life thousand times easier, I can't deny that. Emma and I have chatted since then and we can honestly say we would not change anything about our Big day.
We chose Sweet Home Wedding venue situated in Eston, KZN as our Wedding venue. We had both been there many times for other Weddings and had to agree that THIS was the venue we were going to get married "one day".
Our Love Story
Emma and I met on Tinder back in 2016.. Let me tell you a little more. If you know how Tinder works, then you know there is a radius setting which allows you to choose "matches" closest to your current location. Emma set her location to Ballito and mine was set FAR AWAY from hers and certainly not anywhere close enough to match. However I had a business meeting in Umhlanga this one fine day and whilst waiting for a client, I swiped through Tinder and saw this Beautiful, dark-haired woman appear on my screen - You joke? I'm serious... Well, that was it. One Times SUPERLIKE and a swipe to the right (which means you would like to match with the person). As I was waiting for a client, sitting and thinking "it's probably a guy with a girls profile... this is tinder" anyway...
That evening, I went to have dinner with my Dad and whilst sitting having a few captains, my phone beeped and to date - its the best notification I ever received... Guess what it said??? "YOU MATCHED WITH EMMA"
We got chatting and it wasn't long until Emma asked if we could meet the following day for some coffee. You know my answer right??? HELL YES!! Coffee went well and that was it for us. 1 year Later we got engaged and 2 years later... here we are and the rest is history.
WHY GET MARRIED ON A FRIDAY IS AWESOME
With the COVID19 pandemic that has had such an astronomical effect on the Wedding and Events industry, Brides and Grooms all over the world have had to postpone and/or cancel their long-awaited Wedding Day. Many Brides have chosen to postpone their Wedding and push it forward to the 2021, and of course, this means most Saturday's in 2021 are now fully booked with your favourite providers.
At many wedding ceremony and reception sites, Saturdays are booked a year or more in advance. If you have your heart set on one of these popular venues, an off-day wedding could be the right alternative for you, especially if you're planning within a tight timeline. You also get to celebrate with all your friends and family on the Saturday night, or have a more chilled evening around the fire. It really does make sense to consider having your Wedding on a Friday!
Save for your Honeymoon..
The more popular the wedding day, the more expensive pros and services will be. So in an effort to book their space that would otherwise remain empty, some reception venues may offer the same sit-down dinner on Sunday for a lot less money than it does on a Saturday. It's a simple case of supply and demand: You'll have better luck negotiating lower rates with vendors if there aren't five other couples lined up behind you, ready to take your spot.
Party with the best..
While this might be a downside on the one hand, there's always an upside: You'll end up celebrating with your absolute closest loved ones willing to make the trip for you, making your wedding that much more intimate and special. And remember, even for a Saturday wedding, if you give faraway guests enough advanced notice, they'll probably plan to take a day off (either Friday or Monday, for example) to travel anyway.
Start Early.. Party Late
Going off the beaten path lets you get creative with your wedding events. In an effort to be considerate of your traveling guests, you'll want to start a Friday wedding later in the evening to give everyone a chance to get there. On the flip side, you should make a Sunday wedding earlier so your guests can get home with time to spare. Serve an elegant champagne brunch reception on Sunday that wraps up no later than 5 p.m. Or you're free to party later into the night on Friday with two whole days to recover (yes, please). And your morning-after brunch on Saturday won't feel quite so rushed without the Sunday scaries to dampen the mood.
Save on Flights..
Many couples marry midweek to take advantage of lower airfare for out-of-town guests and their own honeymoon flights. Friday and Sunday weddings can seem especially appealing to brides and grooms who've been married before and learned two things: First, all the extra wedding expenses can really add up for them and their guests, and second, a wedding is a special celebration of love any day of the week.
