Tips on finding your perfect wedding venue in Cape Town

Firstly, Choosing a venue is the first step in your wedding planning journey and can be a hard choice to make. Try booking your venue 12 to 9 months before your wedding date to ensure availability. Especially if you plan to have your wedding during the summer months or on a popular long weekend.

Therefore, consider having a weekday wedding in a less popular month to avoid peak season prices.

Once you have chosen a breathtaking venue it will be much easier to turn it into your envisioned perfect day.

Why not consider hiring a Cape Town wedding planner?

Finally, a wedding planner can help you save more than just money! I may be prejudiced, but it is certainly worth budgeting for a wedding planner.
