Cape Town Wedding Planner Tips: How Much Does a Wedding Planner Cost in Cape Town, South Africa?

This question is one of the first punched into Google, once you decide to host your destination wedding in Cape Town. Well, when answering this question it can often fall under the “how long is a piece of string category”.

Why? Well, there are a lot of things to take into account while arranging a wedding. There are so many wedding planners, and each one of them calculates their packages in a different method. They must also take into account their time and wedding preparation strategy.

Planning a beautiful wedding takes months of careful consideration and a ton of lists. Not to mention the worry and stress involved in selecting the ideal wedding gown, wedding cake, invitations, reception location, photographer, décor, lighting, menus, and save-the-dates — right down to the last teaspoon required.

And let’s be honest, when it comes to wedding preparation, it is only the beginning! Therefore, even if it may cut into your wedding budget, hiring a wedding planner will help you design the wedding of your dreams. Additionally, it greatly reduces the tension that comes with the planning process.
