Wedding planners are not luxury, they are an absolute necessity!
We love working with South African wedding planners in the time leading up to the wedding and on the actual event! Having a good wedding planner makes all the difference, both for the couple and for the suppliers. The planner coordinates all the elements, compiles a timeline, where everything comes together perfectly, looks after the smooth running of events and so much more! They design the look and feel of the day and execute it perfectly, to the client’s specifications. They look after the wedding guests, making sure everyone is taken care of and comfortable. Wedding planners take the stress away from the couple. Between booking vendors, organizing your RSVPs, and managing your budget, planning can be a lot of work. Add in your normal day-to-day responsibilities, and it’s enough to make even the most organised to-be-weds stressed. We are a huge fans of wedding planners, as they make our job much easier and create a framework for all the wedding suppliers to perform in. Here are a few of our favourite gems. Those hard working, enthusiastic, dedicated individuals spend hours behind the scenes making your dream come true. If there is one advise we could give to the couples, we would say: hire a wedding planner! Especially when you are planning a wedding from abroad, South African wedding planners can literally save the day.
