At some point most of us tend to fall within the bracket of getting married, planning a honeymoon or attending weddings as guests. Our heads are buzzing with questions like ‘where can I propose’, ‘where will we stay and ‘where can I take her for our honeymoon’. Prospective brides, your ‘where’s, what’s and how’s’ are almost endless. The N3 Gateway realises that you all need answers and we would like to help by taking some of your stress away!

Where to propose?
We can vouch that she won’t say NO if you pop the question in mid-flight on a hot air balloon flight… Or if you are afraid of heights consider a picnic, wine tasting or a boat ride in the majestic regions of Clarens, Midlands, Berg or the Vaal Triangle.

Where to find EVERYTHING Wedding?
Pssst… The Midlands Bridal Fair is taking place on Sunday, 8 November at Lythwood Lodge. A fun, relaxed day out with a country festival vibe—bands playing, food a-plenty—where the wedding industry will showcase their products and talents to you, the happy bride-to-be. And, of course, there’s a man-cave for the men while you are checking out the make-up artists, bridal gowns and other ‘girlie’ things.
