What Is It?

Wedding Expo 2019

Who says weddings need to be stressful? If your wedding is meant to be the best day of your life, we believe the build-up should be part of the fun.

The Wedding Expo in partnership with Old Mutual is all about bringing the magic of weddings to life and to take the pain out of planning. Come and tick stationery, flowers, table decor, photographers, caterers, financial and legal advice off your to-do list. Peruse the dreamy wedding gowns, sit down with talented jewellery designers and design your engagement ring or wedding finery. Find your perfect honeymoon at the expo and get discounts on the day.

This is the time to get together with the people who are dreaming about your wedding with you – your partner, your besties, your bridesmaids, your mum. See the Instagram accounts you’ve stalked for years in person and start making your perfect day come true!

We are privileged to play a part in the planning of weddings, probably one of the most important dates in many people’s lives,” says Amanda Cunningham, The Wedding Expo’s Managing Director. “Our team prides itself on staying on top of wedding trends, ideas and the best vendors in the country to ensure our guests not only have the ease of a one-stop experience, but also so they are exposed to the best the wedding industry in SA has to offer – whatever their wedding dream may be.”

Both weddings and marriage have financial implications, which is why Priya Naicker, Head of Strategic Retail Marketing at Old Mutual Personal Finance has the following advice for couples who are about to tie the knot: “It is vital for couples to start their financial ‘marriage’ equipped with a financial plan that provides stability and protection, as well as scope for excitement and adventure. It’s ideal to partner with a financial adviser who can help you navigate short term financial decisions – like paying for a wedding – with long term goals.”
