Planning a wedding can be a tremendously stressful process, but you will be surprised that planning for a destination wedding could be simpler and easier. Nowadays, people are even looking for places that are more adventurous type like Cape Town which is considered as one of the most unique cities for people to get married. Thanks to its vast variety of stunning venues and outdoor wedding locations, which is one of the world’s top destinations for marriage ceremonies.
But how to get the planning started?
SET YOUR STYLE AND BUDGET
Renate Prinsloo, the owner of Unforgettable Events, a Cape Town based Events Company comprising of daughter and mother, told us that wedding couples should plan a wedding that is true to who they are as a couple. Fashions come and go, budgets differ, but this is a celebration of your love, so make it “personal”. Add rituals or ceremonies that are meaningful to you. At the end of the day, it’s just a big party; the most important part is the marriage that comes after.
When it comes to a lifetime event, you would definitely want to engage the best photographer/videographer who can capture the most memorable moments, especially when you have spent your hard work, money and planning. So working with a team of carefully selected service providers to deliver truly unforgettable events is important.
Don’t limit your creativity even though it’s a destination wedding. “I’ve been blessed with some really fantastic customers and events; from an Alice in Wonderland Wedding with shoes as table décor to a Venetian wedding with masks as boutonnieres.” Renate said. “However, I think my favorite was the British man, living in Taiwan, who used us to plan a surprise Cape Town wedding for his Spanish fiancé. He chose Cape Town because his grandparents got married here in die 20’s, so we combined elements of vintage Cape Town with elements from the East, where their home is. Proteas… orchids… lace… all very romantic.”
Don’t try and do it all yourself, you should just be enjoying the day. Don’t sweat the small stuff; you’re the only person who knows if anything is not absolutely perfect. Hire a professional or delegate to people you trust. Or nowadays, it is common to have a wedding coach to guide you in the planning process. This is basically a crash course for couples about the do’s and don’ts of planning a wedding. Whether they are doing it themselves or with the help of a professional, most couples feel bewildered about where to start when planning a wedding. This enables couples to confidently and effectively plan their wedding. “I’m very excited about the idea of empowering brides with the tools they need to have a (relatively) low-stress wedding planning experience.” Renate said.
