Plan a realistic wedding at Granny Mouse – playing it smart but making it special!

For brides searching for the perfect place to host their “big” day, a visit to Granny mouse is a must.

Granny Mouse have implemented the most convenient and stress-free way of creating the wedding of one’s dreams, with their various wedding packages that allow the bride and groom to choose how they want their wedding.

Managing owner of Granny Mouse, Gill Bowmaker says, “I met with so many brides and in discussions we realised that a bride generally starts her hunt for a venue with no clear idea of what her budget is, what is needed or what is involved.  Most brides are from outside of the local area so are also overwhelmed at trying to remember all the little detail and co-ordinate logistics of items and suppliers so it became a common request for us to do it all – which we are more than capable.” This is part of the reason why Granny Mouse has structured their wedding packages so differently to other venues.

Delighting in making dreams come true for couples by creating that memorable wedding day at one fully-inclusive cost that can be suited to your budget is why many brides choose Granny Mouse as their wedding destination.

Only 1 and a half hours from Durban and 4 hours from Johannesburg, it is an amazing getaway to make memories in the heart of the Midlands and is true to the “country-feel” if you are looking for a country wedding setting with all the bells and whistles.

Granny Mouse understands that every couple is different and, therefore, there is a variety of wedding packages on offer to suit every need. Whether the bride and groom want to take over the entire hotel for their Big Day, or have a small private affair– it’s your choice!

The packages titled Emerald, Diamond, Ruby, Sapphire and Tanzanite, cater to individual needs and preferences and with their many years of experience in tailor-making any wedding, the bride and groom can feel at ease!

Knowing that planning a wedding is one of the largest bill’s a couple or their parents could face, Granny Mouse developed packages to suit various budgets with a nifty bridal budget calculator, which can be found on the website, to help work out all cost to the “T”.

Pippa Dedekind, a mother-of-the-bride who recently held her daughter’s wedding at Granny Mouse commented, “We used the wedding calculator and found it very helpful.  We then tailored it to our needs, and transposed our actual figures, and it gave us a very realistic picture of our wedding finances.  We knew what we were in for – and it gave us an agreed structure, and the confidence that we had covered most of the different components of a wedding.  So it worked as a finance tool, but also a checklist.  I have recommended it to other brides and their mothers, and particularly fathers and grooms!  Very importantly, it put my husband’s mind to rest that “we were in control” of the finances.”

Some of the amazing features to look forward to on the big day include personalized service from the dedicated team headed by General Manager, Sean Granger; the 120 seater chapel overlooking the Caversham Valley that is an iconic feature for your “I do’s”, the spectacular gardens that offer a beautiful backdrop for your photographs and all the little extra’s that are taken care of, such as umbrellas in case of rain, a golf cart for transport to the chapel and more.

The two most popular reception venues are The Caversham Room, which can comfortably hold 120 people or The Common, situated below the hotel and close to Lion’s River – the ideal outdoor location and of course, the most important part of the entire day – the food! Granny Mouse’s Executive Chef, Ryan Brand is all hand on when it comes to creating the bride and groom a special menu for their special day.

Apart from amazing food, there is also an in-house pastry chef who creates beautiful country-style cakes to “wow” the guests at the time of the cake cutting!

Then, when all the festivities are over, the newly-weds can spend their first night together as a married couple in the stunning deluxe suite that is sure to make a magical start to the honeymoon!
