South Africa is a popular choice for a memorable destination wedding. Rich with culture and exotic wildlife and scenery, South Africa has a great selection of world-class wedding coordinators and venues to bring your wildest dreams to life. You may customize your wedding package and have a safari wedding or an intimate ceremony on an island in the Indian Ocean.
Cape Town is a spectacular setting for your wedding. Kirstenbosch, the beautiful botanical gardens, and Table Mountain offer a spectacular setting, or you may have your wedding at one of the wine estates. Scenic towns including St.Helena Bay on the Cape West Coast are a quaint location for a wedding.
Johannesburg is a stunning locale for eco-friendly and rustic-style weddings. A wedding at a tranquil lodge on a nature preserve is a memorable experience. You can explore Johannesburg and Pretoria, see the sights in a hot-air balloon, view African wildlife up close, and entertain your guests in style in a traditional African boma. Many of the best hotels have wedding venues and coordinators that can assist you with every detail.
A destination wedding can be a much more affordable alternative to a traditional lavish wedding. Many places offer complete wedding packages which often includes an on-site wedding consultant to help you with all of the special details of your wedding.
Another great reason to have a destination wedding is the ability to have a smaller guest list. Instead of planning for hundreds of people you will have only close friends and family who are willing to make the trip out to your destination for your wedding.
Although a destination wedding is a more affordable option for the bride and groom, it does come at a higher cost to your guests. A small, intimate guest list will allow you to share your special day with the people who really mean the most to you.
Many couples who choose a destination wedding, also opt to combine their wedding location with their honeymoon dream. Get married in a stunning location, and then continue the celebrations in the same spot or enjoy the duration of your trip at a nearby resort.
