Lythwood Weddings

Your wedding, your big day. You’ve dreamed about how you want your wedding to be, now it’s all happening. You have always wanted a wedding in the country. Out there in the mountains. A place where your special day will be recorded in a series of stunning photos and memories.

Big trees, open lawns, beautiful gardens. Forests and rolling hills. A Rustic Chapel. Fresh air and open spaces. Family and friends close at hand to celebrate with you.

Whether it’s a romantic garden ceremony, a Boho forest ceremony or under a Bedouin Tent you are dreaming of, we have all the options. Same goes for your reception… under the stars or covered. Lythwood – an award-winning KwaZulu-Natal Midlands wedding venue – will give you all of the above, but with two big differences …

Four comprehensive wedding packages, each including various wedding service items relating to your wedding with a single all-in price. Some include things many other venues don’t, like accommodation for your guests, your wedding cake, and more.

Including a dedicated wedding co-ordinator, to make planning your wedding a breeze!

Prefer something more intimate or a superb reception. The choices are endless....

Planning Checklist

Wedding Planning Checklist? We will help you dot all the i’s and cross the t’s. You’ve poured over the guest list, sent out the invitations and now have to manage all the RSVPs. We have a RSVP tool for that. A bevy of vendors, each doing their bit. Some, you’ve already paid a deposit, others are still waiting to be paid before they start their work. Tracking with your budget can be a nightmare. We have a budget tracking tool for that. Floor and table seating plans need to be made. We have a tool for that. Everyone took photos along the way. All part of your journey to becoming a married couple. You want those memories close at hand. In one easy-to-find place. We have a photo tool for that. We’ve laboured long and hard to make sure you don’t have to. Made sure you have everything at your fingertips to help you in your wedding plans. All these tools and more, available for you to use when you sign up with Lythwood. Login to my Event Plan Manager
Who sits where? This is always a challenge. Our tool takes all the information from the RSVP guest list and feeds it into your seating plan, ready for you to allocate seating arrangements. Our tool allows you to visually plan the reception floor just the way you want it.
This is where we often see the wheels fall off. Either, it’s no budget and the wheels start to come off as the money runs out. Or, there’s a budget, but keeping track of all those expenses is overwhelming and it soon falls apart. With our wedding budget tracking tool, you will be able to keep track of what’s been paid, deposits and balance payments and where you stand.
Everyone has finally agreed on who should be invited. Now it’s time to get the invites out on time and to start tracking with the RSVPs. Load your guest list into our tool and your guests can simply RSVP online. For those who prefer the old-fashioned way, you can easily RSVP on their behalf. The end result, a complete guest list that links into your seating plan, menu choices and hotel rooming list. Simple.
Your wedding is a journey, right from the moment the proposal is accepted until you drive away on honeymoon.There are all those memories made along the way. Your friends and family snapping away those moments on their smart phones. Your wedding website page can hold all those memories for all your friends and family to see. To enjoy the journey with you.
Like all good to-do & checklists, ours makes it easy for you to tick off your to-do’s. We even have them all listed, so you don’t have compile your own. You can also add your own if you wish. Assign the to-do’s to one or multiple vendors/friends or family members, set due dates and attach notes. What sets ours apart is how simple it makes organizing, modifying and setting notifications for them. And you can track all your to-do’s in your master calendar.
