Still not convinced? Here are a few reasons why you need Wed Safe

A couple had booked a venue and paid the deposit for a venue. Two months prior to the wedding date the groom who was the sole financial contributor for the wedding costs was made redundant by his company. The couple could not afford to go ahead with the rest of the wedding.

The wedding was subsequently cancelled, however, bride and groom were held liable for the deposits already paid, including a full venue fee, as per their contract signed with the venue.

A couple had guests who had enjoyed themselves and got a bit rowdy at the wedding venue. Subsequently, a toilet seat was broken in the bathroom. This toilet seat however was imported from Italy and was not available locally within South Africa.

The couple were liable to the venue, as per the venue’s contract for the replacement of the toilet seat which cost R3,500.

A groom had his bachelors and was involved in some bar fight two days before the wedding. Following the fight, he ended up in hospital, with his lip split in two and ended up requiring reconstructive surgery on his face.

Leading up to the wedding date, people had flown to South Africa from overseas and the food was purchased for their wedding reception. The wedding venue charged full venue fee, which the couple was responsible for.
