The Wedding Run is back, and in it’s second year umm… running, it’s going to be bigger and better.
What is it? The Wedding Run is based on the concept of the Amazing Race. The teams (3-5 people each) start at one point, which last year was Thaba Ya Botswana. At this point they had to do certain tasks which at the same time involved them running through the venue getting a quick view of it. Then from there they received a clue sheet that had various venues that they had to drive to.
At each place, racers had to do some sort of activity which, if you succeeded you moved on – else there were penalties that cost you time.
At each stop they could win vouchers and prizes, and each team had to take their photo at every venue.
Last year the clues took them to:
Wedding Connexion – match the wine to the aroma game by Douglas Green.
The Cake Genie – blindfolded cake tasting. Then match the cake to the flavour.
Calistos Restaurant – where a limo company had set up a ‘Build a pyramid with Jellytots and Spaghetti’ or ‘Wait 10 mins and have a Tequila’.
African Diamond in Eastgate – pop the balloon
Kzara Visual Concepts – pop the balloon
Moments – celebrating life – pop the balloon
Each team had to have a name and dressed up accordingly. There was a prize for the best dresses team as well.
The first team back to Thaba Ya Botswana won.
Prizes for this years Wedding Run include:
Wedding dress hire by Wedding Connexion, wedding invites by Epique Events, photos by Happy Snaps Photography, photos by Pure Light Photography, make up vouchers from Face It Make Up, cake vouchers from The Cake Genie, plus other prizes from Precious Celebrations, Kzara Visual, News Favours, Spa vouchers from www.la-beau-di.co.za, R60 000 wedding insurance package from Diamond Life and more.
