The invitation clearly said the wedding was to start at 8:00 am. However, nobody took that time seriously. At about 8:00 am, we left the Molale home, with the wedding gown, to go to the guest house in Lichtenburg, about 20 minutes away, where the wedding party had spent the night. When we got there, the parking attendant commented on how early we were. Later, I met the preacher, who told me that he had never been to an African wedding that had started on time.
The venue was a lovely guest house, one that had obviously hosted many weddings before. It was all decked out in white, and looked very much like a setting for a non- denominational ceremony in the states.
