As the Limpopo Wedding Planner for the past 7 years I have been witness to
countless weddings as both the coordinator and a guest. Over the years the
trends have shifted and changed however these traditional trends have
Understand your budget
Soon to be wedded couples are more mindful to their budgets and have a clear
idea of what is a wasteful expense for their special day. Pinterest has given rise
to subtle changes in the general look and feel of the day that are cost effective
and create statement pieces without the damage to your pocket normally
experienced when using high end and extravagant suppliers.
Wedding dresses with a pop of colour
Traditional wedding dresses are no longer a pure white gown to achieve the gasp
from the room. Adding a pop of colour to your wedding dress or colour in the
lace trail is elegantly dramatic.
Mesmerizing and mystical décor
Keep it natural with a dash of whimsy.
Floral roof installations make for a stunning
statement piece and create a beautiful flow throughout your venue
from ceiling to floor; embracing your guests in soft colour and subtle scents.
Cinderella’s Crystal Slipper is no longer the talk of the town
The shimmery stiletto shoe has been replaced with comfort and style. Brides are
now wearing sneakers that highlight their own sense of style and allow for a full
night of celebration without the agony.
Wedding cake or Wedding favours? We want both!
“Let them eat cake”.
Often the cake is the showstopper piece of your wedding
which becomes wasteful left overs. Rather cut the cake and place them into
branded boxes as parting gifts and wedding favours for your guests to take
home. This ensures the cake is eaten and enjoyed without the added expense of
thank you gifts to your guests for joining you on your special day.
Naked and Geode cakes are gorgeous and delicious. The iconic moment of
cutting the cake will undoubtedly inspire an “aaahhh” moment.
Bouquets with a difference
Having a standard floral bouquet is not a priority. Enjoy being creative with
unique bridesmaids bouquets which also allow for a hands free and versatile
Life is but a dance
Walk in and dance out. Preparation is key to avoiding any anxiety, dry mouth or
trip ups. Dance lessons with a professional teacher and learning a choreographed
piece to your chosen song will surprise and wow your guests. Starting with an
elegant waltz, including a sprinkle of personality and edge with hip hop or house
will have your guests raving and enjoying in the fun. Set the tone while opening
the dance floor.
Timeless and Traditional
Limpopo wedding couples marry cultural traditions seamlessly with a classic
white wedding. Traditional colours are threaded into the décor, subtle hints
included in the white wedding dress design or full traditional attire is worn at the
reception. Emphasis on tradition is visible throughout the wedding day.
Forget the A,B, C’s and remember the C, D, E’s
Your guests will always comment on the catering, décor and entertainment.
Make sure your guests enjoy a full and hearty meal, bask in the ambience of your
magical day and let loose on the dance floor to music that inspires nostalgia, fun
and laughter. Your guests will be talking about the best wedding they have ever
attended for years to come. #WeddingGoals
