With a large section of their clientele based overseas, IDo4U specializes in destination wedding planning. They are geared towards helping couples from across the globe plan their dream wedding in SA. Starting with a budget sheet, they can help conceptualize a look and feel of the wedding for the couple. Over many emails, Skype chats and WhatsApp calls – they can help the couple get a good idea of what to expect.
Being based in another country means that the couple has to put a lot of trust and blind faith in their wedding planner. That is why IDo4U goes the extra mile to help put their clients at ease and make sure they get exactly what they imagined.
