KwaDukuza, KZN, 8 March: One of the biggest questions couples ask themselves when planning a destination wedding is how to keep guests entertained while they deal with last minute preparations in the days leading up to the wedding. Couples feel that they are responsible for their guests for the duration of the wedding period – adding even more to an already piled plate. Prince’s Grant offers an extensive list of activities that keep your guests occupied and happy – turning you into the perfect host!
From entertainment to food, your guests will be taken care of while you can concentrate on bigger things, like the most important day of your life. Jacolette Mostert, Senior Functions Coordinator at Prince’s Grant, says, “Your guests are our guests. We want them to have the best stay possible, and ensure that memories of your wedding will make them as happy as they make you.”
A destination wedding typically occurs on a Saturday with guests arriving on Friday and leaving on Sunday or Monday. That leaves a bit of time for guests to be entertained before and after the wedding. The secret to keeping guests happy is not to over-plan for them and make them feel forced into activities. Rather give them choices and let them decide for themselves how they would like to spend their time while you are rushing around finalizing last minute wedding details. Luckily at Prince’s Grant, they will be spoiled for choice.
The morning of your wedding, guests can enjoy some early morning sunshine on the golf course. Prince’s Grant boasts one of the most beautiful 18-hole golf courses you will ever see. Staying on par on pristine greens on rolling hills with views of the ocean, mountains and forest is the ideal way to pass a few hours.
For guests who like to stay active, there are numerous hiking trails through the unique coastal forest with bird watching opportunities. Information on birds in the area can be found at reception. If getting your heart rate up is more your thing, enjoy a game on the tennis or squash court, both of which are available at Prince’s Grant. Your guests can also take advantage of being near the ocean and do some canoeing in the lagoon or swimming in the sea.
The guests who prefer to spend their holiday time relaxing can lie by the pool and work on their tan, or relax in the water to cool down. Prince’s Grant has 2km of private beach to enjoy, allowing your guests to lie on the beach sipping on a cocktail or stroll along the gorgeous white beach getting their feet wet in the Atlantic Ocean.
Everyone can come together for meal times at a choice of restaurants. Start the festivities off with fine dining the evening before the wedding at the Bunkers A La Carte Restaurant and enjoy a good breakfast the next morning with menu options from the Mulligans Bar and Restaurant on the verandas surrounding the Lodge.
