86 Comments

  1. congrats makoti!!!!!! but colour coordination? what is happening, I see pink and white, blue and white on the one groom’s man, then there’s black and white on the other groom’s men also peach on bride’s maids….. hope you had a colourful day.

    • @blaq butterfly you cannot choose colours for everybody coming to your wedding. So for a home wedding, the couple did very well.

  2. This was a simple Home wedding, very nice colours, you never go wrong with pink. The blue is also good. Even though it was not in big Hotels/Halls, you guys made a small simple wedding party at Home and I guess you made your parents very happy. All the Best Oupa and Fredeline, as soon as professional pics are out please post more.

    • Yes, you are rite. Just some people think Spending lavishly on weddings is Class! home weddings are still the best.

      • I do understand that the wedding was held at home but there must be order. When you decide to share your big day with the rest of the readers respect them enough to submit good quality pictures. This is a disaster phela you just don’t understand which is which here.

    • Hi Locust, what is 70’s about this wedding? The organza covering shoulders? Dudette, it all depends on a couple of factors. This is a home wedding. there are a couple of other considerations. Fredeline and Oupa, you did well guys even if Idont know u all, I can see what you did was good enough for your standard. Batho ba bolaya ke di loans just to impress Guests.

      • Locust I agree with you, the setup n d wedding dress is 70th. I have nothing against covering shoulders I just think you get use something stylish to do that. we can say it was a home wedding but this is ugly shem. but congratulations to them and for having a wedding which fits their pocket and not force to be like all fancy wile they don’t afford.

      • Haii Kaboomo why are u bothered by people’s comment , are u related to the couple? I also see mix masala on this wedding. And u wrong u can spend R10k and still get a classy , elegant wedding without taking any loans. Colour co-ordinaton is key

  15. Bathong kaboomo are you the spokesperson for the couple???

    Congratulations guys on your wedding. The colour combo has lost me. Makoti I’m not feeling that organza over your boob tube dress. The quality of the pictures is poor, why don’t people wait till their professional photographs are out mara? Nonetheless it looks like you enjoyed your day, all the best.

    • thank you for being honest I was thinking the exact same thing and thought gore the “newbies” as you put are different from the ‘”oldies”. being home doesn’t excuse or make mood lighter than a venue wedding. after all they are all WEDDINGS. And we should be honest. I also didn’t like anything.

      Good luck!!!!

  17. there’s expensive lavish home weddings why are you busy with simple home wedding? and there’s also simple hall weddings where you don’t find all the glamour and beauty you expect.

    and I must say home weddings are beautiful I prefer them more than this hall weddings, you feel the wedding vibes from a distant.

    Thanks makoti for sharing your pics.

  22. Most comments are sarcastic,…….come on lets be real and honest to people what difference does it make if its a home wedding. no colour coordination, so much more on the wedding dress, less would be appropriate. This should be called ‘at least I got married’ ka white wedding. its horrible………….

  26. Guys please let’s not torture the couples who are planning to have “home wedding”. This is totally ugly, I don’t think the decor was paid for, never!! no one can pay for that. organza is totally out of fashion, am surprised to see it on the decor. senga beja the lady who did that decor is over 60years old. The main table? ????.. aye
    As for the cake bathong, pick n pay cake that one..

    congrats anyway, but you have waisted u r money. You should have waited one more year to save for a better wedding…

    • Since your Homechoice extravaganza could not impress us well enough, I would advise you to start saving for the 1st anniversary, at-least you still have a chance to patch things up. Should you need some assistance in that regard, do not hesitate to approach Motsweling, or maybe you should ask Khumo, she will be happy to assist you!

  35. U know a rainbow has 7 colours and all those colours complement each other. With proper colour combination and co-ordinations the Decor wouldn’t look so messy. I think the decorators also let us down I mean can’t they make suggestions when it comes to colour combinations. And the other thing is that thing she used for her shoulders it’s so not Ayoba, she might as well have just put ityali over her shoulders. And I’m sorry to those who feel offended by the comments kodwa nathi we are also learning from the weddings posted here. What works for u won’t work for the other…

  36. Houwa this wedding there is a disaster in here, home or no home, makoti just didn’t do her homework at all. You don’t need a fancy venue or a lot of money to have a simple and elegant wedding. Its about a style and i see makoti has no sense of style at all. There is nothing that i can say at least the cake or the dress look beautiful. But congratulations are in order, you are now husband and wife and be blessed in your marriage.
