Why a Cape Town Winter Wedding Wins

Winter in Cape Town might not be the most popular season for most people. When you think of Cape Town you most likely imagine sun & beaches in the summer. In this post we discuss ideas why winter weddings might be the right choice for your wedding.

Your Pick of Vendors

Many of your vendors and suppliers will often have a lot more dates open in the winter. Popular service providers often have their summer dates fully booked 8 to 16 months ahead.

Cape Town Wedding Winter Budget

Best for less

As the demand decreases during winter, often service providers will run a winter special. The potential saving from each vendor could quickly add up to a huge savings. Perfect for those on a budget or for those who want to go all out on their honeymoon instead.

Less Stress, More Time

During the summer everyone, including your service providers, is busy especially since its right around Christmas. Your wedding should not be rushed & forgettable. You’ll have a lot less stress planning a winter wedding simply because you’ll have more time on your hands. This will also ensure more guests attendance too.

More Romantic

During the winter months the sun sets earlier and gets darker sooner. This is a perfect time to warm your guests up with pillows, blankets and a hot chocolate bar. Lighting your venue candles, fairy lights & sparklers will create magical photos.

Comfort Food

Dish up hearty warm plates of the foods your guests will really enjoy. Popular dishes range from soups, spaghetti, steaks and more.  Wrap it up with a warm pudding, hot chocolate bar or s’mores bar.

Winter in Cape Town still has tons to offer. Although we have relatively low temperatures, rain and wind its never enough to ruin a wedding.
