Welcome, friends

MEET THE OH HAPPY DAY TEAM

Team work makes the dream work.

A heartfelt connection is a powerful thing.

Oh Happy Day was founded in 2014. Over time, Oh Happy Day has evolved from a one-person enterprise into a team of innovative contributors, each specialising in their own unique talents – from floral designers, to stylists and décor specialists and logistics and lead wedding planners.

The OHD team believes that our ability to connect with our clients is what differentiates us from other event planners, and this connection is at the core of every event that we design.

We do more than plan events: we convert life’s biggest moments into lasting memories that our clients remember forever. At OHD we feel privileged to have had the opportunity to meet and connect with wonderful people and assist them while they prepare for some of life’s biggest adventures.

Joelene Botha

Hello, I’m Joelene, a self-confessed chocoholic, book-nerd, beach lover, wife, friend and creative who’s always planning her next adventure. My friends call me Jojo, and I’m so pleased you’ve found your way onto Oh Happy Day.

For as long as I can remember, I have been in love with creative planning. I’ve been lucky enough to turn my passion into my career, and from our very first meeting together you will feel the creative energy and excitement of your planning journey begin. I can’t help it; my enthusiasm is contagious, and I pride myself on creating cherished moments that you and your guests will remember forever.

I really love people. Relationships are ultimately what make me tick. What I love most about relationships is how unique and original each one can be. It’s my interpretation of these love stories that lends itself to creating unforgettable celebrations and happy clients.

I am so inspired by nature. When I’m not planning and designing events, you’ll find me outdoors – either on the beach or spending time in the African bush; and always with a really good book. I am supported by my wonderful husband Stef and our two handsome cats Rusty and Felix: wherever they are, is where you’ll find my heart.

  • So! Someone has offered you their wedding service for what seems like a steal..... R500 for a wedding cake for 120 pax?  or ALL your wedding flowers for under R10 000?  or a wedding video for R5000?

It's so tempting to take them up on the offer because you're beginning to compile your wedding budget and the costs are starting to run away with you...(we feel you!) But here's some advice before you go ahead and lock yourself in to your vendors : RESEARCH!
.
🍉 have you seen examples of their work? Ie: links to their latest wedding clip? Pics of their latest florals?
🍉can they refer you to past clients who they have worked with?
Ie: send you some brides who can vouch that they gave great service?
🍉is their kind of style in line with the vision you have for your wedding? What if you want a 3 tier naked chocolate mousse cake but the person who is doing the cake for R500 can only do vanilla sponge with fondant icing?
🍉what is their social media presence? Are they active on IG? What do their profiles look like? I don't just mean the pretty pics they've shared off Pinterest on their IG feed. Tip: look for the pics the vendor is tagged in, for a good indication of their work and history.

Herein lies the challenge: 
Don't look at the direct cost without considering the alternatives : sometimes the "bargainer" might seem like the right choice as they provide a fast and easy option BUT the opportunity cost of such a decision could be time, money and stress for you, later.

I'm not saying that bargain vendors are a bad idea - I'm just saying do your research before you lock yourself in to ANYTHING.  Yes, this might take more time, but wouldn't you rather be safe than sorry? ・・・
