Like SA’s winelands that much? Why not get married? So many wineries offer wedding venues and to us Americans, a wedding at one of these estates would be relatively “cheap”.


Schedule a hairdresser and makeup artist

Today, the Internet offers various options, so this shouldn’t be a problem. Just search for hairdressers and makeup artists in the place you are going to get married and choose the ones that suit you. If you are not sure how they will treat you, check online reviews and get in touch with the salon before you embark on your wedding journey.


Find the right hotel for your guests

Try to find a hotel that is suitable for group visits. That way, all your guests will be in one place and the price will probably be more affordable. Make sure that each guest is happy with the accommodation, and if they want to find the right hotel themselves, let them. The most important thing is that everyone is happy, that everyone can afford it and that you all celebrate that special day together.

Wedding party

In case you want your best friends and siblings in your wedding party, you need to be aware that traveling abroad to your wedding can be a huge expense.

Just try to make them as comfortable as possible, because the important thing is that they are there for the celebration. It doesn’t matter if that person can’t be there the day before and after the ceremony.



Once you’ve found your location and set a date, start making invitations. You should usually start sending invitations at least 3 months in advance, especially if you are expecting that your guests will go abroad for you.


Check your location in person

This is huge! You shouldn’t plan a wedding on a destination you never been to! And even if you were, it doesn’t count if you haven’t been there in the last 6 months. You need to check if the location you picked looks, and is equipped the same as it seems on the internet. It would also help if you booked everything in person so there are no mistakes when you get there for your wedding. Planning the venue, decoration, catering, and booking your beauty appointments will be so much easier if done in person. That way you will be sure that everything is to your liking and that are no misunderstandings. Maybe you even get some inspiration for your honeymoon.

I'm a dual Canadian-American from NYC that moved to South Africa for work and ended up traveling all through the continent. I'm currently living the expat life in Frankfurt, Germany and traveling the world as much as I can. I'm a bit obsessed with scuba diving, churning credit cards so I never pay to fly, and eating the most questionable of foods in the most peculiar of places. My bucket list is the world, and some day I might make it there.
