Franschhoek Wine Valley

The Pretty Blog adds extra sparkle to this year’s Franschhoek Wedding Showcase

Franschhoek is the perfect (and definitely romantic) setting to celebrate the most memorable day of your life. Exquisite views, world class venues, fine dining and award-winning wines complete the package for this special day. A sneak peek of what you can expect will be on offer at the inaugural Franschhoek Wedding Showcase on 18 April 2015. The perfect showcase for all romantics at heart to make their dreams a reality.

Adding an extra dash of excitement to the day will be the team from The Pretty Blog who will be presenting two mini workshops. Entitled ‘I’m engaged what now?’ these workshops will be the lifeline for all brides-to-be offering invaluable advise on organising your perfect dream wedding. Christine Meintjes, published wedding photographer and founder of The Pretty Blog, will be presenting the workshop together with The Pretty Blog editor, Toni Fawzy. Christine has been part of the industry for more than 10 years, and knows the ins and outs when it comes to wedding planning. Toni recently got married and all the organising is still fresh in her mind. Sit back and take in what they have to share about the basics of wedding planning, while giving you a few tips on how NOT to break the bank.

A trip to the Franschhoek Winelands over this weekend will get your creative juices flowing as well as add hype and excitement in preparation for your ‘Big Day’. A selection of wedding suppliers will be pulling out all the stops, and include venues, dresses, cakes, stationary, music, DJ’s, photographers, wineries and so much more. An added attraction to the event will be the launch of Franschhoek’s online wedding registry. This allows the bride and groom to select wedding gifts from Franschhoek specialist shops and wineries.

To allow for a unique showcase a centralised venue will be set up at Le Franschhoek Hotel & Spa. Not only is Franschhoek is the most romantic wedding destination, but it is also the perfect weekend getaway. Use this weekend to relax and unwind, and possibly arrange to visit Franschhoek wine farms and other properties who specialise in weddings (by appointment only).

Tickets cost R80 per person and are available from www.webtickets.co.za or on the day at Le Franschhoek Hotel & Spa.

Both workshops will cover the same topics and cost R120 per person, which includes entrance to the Franschhoek Wedding Showcase. Book directly through www.webtickets.co.za.
