For couples that want to combine spectacular beauty, classic elegance and an undeniable vibe to celebrate their special wedding day, South Africa is the destination of choice. It is (and has been) an increasingly popular holiday and honeymoon destination. More than this, though, South Africa is ideal for the wedding ceremony and reception too.
Professional Service Providers
This country is abounding with qualified, experienced professionals that offer world-class products and wedding services. These include photographers, clothing designers, hair and beauty specialists, music performers or dj’s, décor and interior design experts, caterers, and so on. These pros are based in every major city of the country. Many are also based in the smaller, quieter towns, albeit to a slightly lesser degree.
Favourable Exchange Rates
The South African Rand goes a long way for visitors that are converting from pounds, dollars, Euros, and the like. This means getting a lot more for your money, and being able to spoil yourself and indulge in some extras to make your wedding day even more special and memorable. Treat yourselves (and, depending on your budget, your friends and family members too) by taking advantage of the excellent exchange rate.
Unbelievable Wedding Venues
The magnificent landscapes make for breath-taking backdrops to any wedding celebration as well as the wedding photographs. There is an endless variety of venues that are ideal for events, some dedicated entirely to hosting wedding receptions. Often, the event organisers at these venues will handle the entire affair – from décor to catering and just about everything in-between. They are situated in city centres, on urban rooftops, or in the stunning countryside for which South Africa is known and loved.
South Africa makes a stunning honeymoon destination. By coming here for both the wedding and the honeymoon, you ensure that every aspect of your wedding is romantic and idyllic, and that you save costs to some extent, preventing unnecessary back-and-forth flights, and so on. Those guests that are able to join you in South Africa will be able to turn your celebration of love into a vacation for themselves and their families too.
Variety of Settings
This country is one of diversity. There are so many different settings from which to choose, giving engaged couples an enormous choice when it comes to deciding on the site of their big day. These include forests, mountains, bushveld, game parks, beaches, luxurious lodges, private gardens, urban epicentres, and so on. No matter what style your wedding or the budget you have dedicated to the setting, there is a perfect place in which to have it.
Places like Gauteng, Limpopo, Mpumalanga and KwaZulu Natal are known for their hot, sunny summer weather conditions. Gauteng and the North West Province experience less rain, while the Eastern Cape and Western Cape have hot summers and cool, wet winters. No matter what time of year you wish to have your South African wedding, there is sure to be a place in which the weather conditions are just right.
