Affiance Affair is a brand new service provider in the Wedding Community and definitely someone we would love to work with in the future. Here is everything you need to know about this vibrant institution.
TELL US MORE ABOUT AFFIANCE AFFAIR – WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT DO SPECIALISE IN?
Affiance Affair is an independent and well respected planning company that strives to bring stylish, well executed events to the function scene! We are dedicated to ensuring that every client’s best interests are kept at the forefront of their planning experience. We will work with you to create, not only an end result you will be proud and excited to share, but a planning experience that is both enjoyable and strategically executed.
WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE BUSINESS AND WHEN WAS IT CREATED?
Our love for weddings and the moments that go with it. Moments like watching the bride walking down the aisle and seeing how happy and content she, and her groom, are.
WHY “AFFIANCE AFFAIR”?
“Affiance” means being engaged to get married in French. We thought that a name, meaning a Wedding Affair of a Grand Affair, was ideal because this is exactly what we do.
TELL US MORE ABOUT THE TEAM BEHIND THE PRODUCT?
We are two vibrant young personalities with experience in the media industry. Marilize Scheepers has already worked in the industry for numerous years and is a genius when it comes to social media. Christell du Preez used to plan book launches and workshops for a well-respected publishing house. But both of them always felt that life was a little bit dull when it came to the work department, so they decided to leave their jobs for a career in the magnificent wedding industry.
WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS AND GOALS FOR THE FUTURE?
Our strategy is to become a well-established event planning company within the Gauteng region.
HOW WILL YOUR CLIENTS BENEFIT FROM YOUR SERVICES?
It is Affiance Affair’s expertise in the field, dedication to our clients, outstanding organizational skills, drive and energy, and most importantly, our absolute love for the job that makes us the perfect choice for you.
WHAT MAKES YOUR COMPANY UNIQUE OF DIFFERENT FROM OTHER SIMILAR INSTITUTIONS IN THE INDUSTRY?
Affiance Affair offers knowledgeable, experienced, qualified planners who understand how to move a client through a seamless planning experience. We appreciate that each client will have distinctive planning needs, so we will adapt our planning methods to best suit these requirements.
IF YOU COULD GIVE BRIDES-TO-BE ONE PIECE OF ADVICE, WHAT WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
Don’t get caught up in “perfection”. Embrace the unexpected, and all the things that might go wrong, and don’t let an unattainable ideal sour the bigger picture. No one will know if something is missing or wasn’t done. This event says a lot about you as a couple, but it’s not all you’ll ever be. It’s just the beginning!
IF YOU COULD GIVE GROOMS-TO-BE ONE PIECE OF ADVICE, WHAT WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
There is actually three things we would like to tell the future groom:
1. Have an Opinion
This is your wedding too, so get in on the planning. Pick a few things that interest you. You don’t have to comment on the difference between lilies and daisies for the bridesmaid bouquets, but give your opinion on the major planning points.
2. Be a buffer
If your mom is calling your fiancé every hour to talk about the wedding, you run the risk of major family conflict, with you stuck in the middle. Your mission: Keep the peace. Call your mom and let her know that while you appreciate her interest and excitement, it’s your wedding and she needs to give you two some planning space.
3. Don’t add insult
Your fiancé may complain about her mom who’s being a control freak, or about her uncle who wants to bring his new girlfriend, or her cousin who wants to bring all four of her kids. Don’t join in on the family bashing. Hear her out, agree with her, but don’t take this opportunity to tell her the things about her family that annoys you. Her bad mood will pass, but your careless comments may stick.
WHAT IS THE COMPANY’S MOTTO AND WHY?
We do “I do” perfectly – We use our knowledge and expertise to help guide you in making the best possible decisions, in order for the final result to be one you can be proud of and enjoyed getting to.
