Dear Boho Wedding Revelers,
This is just a brief to let you know what is going to happen before, during, and after showtime. We are getting married in Pretoria (Tshwane, for you post millennium kids) East. We'll be starting at 15:00 so give yourselves an approximate travel time of 1 hr 45 minutes, depending on where you're departing from. More travel information can be found under the 'Directions' tab.
The dress code is boho, that's bohemian in case you're unsure. Please don't swap the 'b' and 'h' because then you'll come dressed as hobo and that'll be poor form. Boho's are free-spirited; hobo's like free spirits (and unfortunately we'll be running a cash bar).
The bohemian credo is one we would like to infuse into our celebrations. Their rules are as follows: - Love hard, laugh often, fantasize, rock the boat, fight for a cause, be independent, love who you are, live through colour, music, and dance, be creative, stay humble, shake your world, keep your word, start a revolution (maybe this last one you save for a later date). These are the things we want on the day of our wedding, and for our lives.
For ideas on how to dress go to the 'Dress-up Ideas' tab under the 'more' tab.
Since the venue is more than a stone's throw away, for those of you who want to make a night of it there are affordable places to stay near-by. We would love you to do so, so just do it! Plans are in motion to organise transport to get people from the venue to their overnight accommodation. Further details will be posted under the 'Accommodation' tab.
Lastly, we're not content with just one day. Seeing people who have travelled to be with us for such a short time is just so un-bohemian. We are booking a getaway at a game lodge nearby (nearby being about two hours away). The approximate duration for our getaway will be 3 nights. Anyone who wants to join us for all of the time or even one or two nights must please do so. The idea for this is to spend some quality time with the people we love instead of having a private honeymoon. This is what we most want. It will be self catering and the cost per person will be confirmed closer to the time. Booking is essential as this will inform us of the size of venue we need to book. You can connect Bev by clicking the 'mail' icon (or the wee envelope) at the top right hand side of this website. Please let us know as fast as possible if you will be joining us.
