But how much does hiring a wedding planner actually cost in South Africa? On average a wedding planner in South Africa can cost anything from R20 000 - R60 000.

Understanding the Value of a Wedding Planner

While price is an important consideration, it's equally crucial to understand the value a wedding planner brings to your special day. Wedding planners go beyond the logistics; they transform your ideas into reality, manage vendor relationships, create seamless timelines, and handle unforeseen challenges. Their expertise ensures that you can relax and savor every moment without worrying about the details.

Comparing with Industry Norms

It's worth noting that wedding planner costs can vary within the industry. Some planners charge a percentage (typically 10-15%) of the total wedding cost. This approach may be suitable for couples who desire more flexibility in their planning process.

However, at Ethereal Events Co., we believe in offering transparent, fixed-price packages that clearly outline what you'll receive and at what cost. This approach eliminates any surprises and allows you to choose the package that best aligns with your vision and needs.
