Cape Town Wedding Planner Reflection: Our Top 8 Favourite Bridal Bouquets From Our Own Weddings

Cape Town Wedding Planner Reflection: Our Top 8 Favourite Bridal Bouquets From Our Own Weddings

Any Cape Town wedding planner will tell you, that the bridal, bouquet needs to be absolutely perfect! Not only is it in the centre of most of a couple’s wedding pictures, but the bride’s bouquet needs to be a perfect balance between holding up to the beauty of the bride, while not overpowering it or pulling focus.

A bridal bouquet’s purpose stems from centuries ago when brides carried strong smelling herbs and spices while walking down the aisle to ward off evil spirits. Another theory is that brides carried sweet smelling flowers in order to smell sweet for their grooms. Either way, as a Cape Town wedding planner, I have seen some exquisite bridal bouquets at our weddings over the years, and here are some of our favourites:

1. The Bold Bridal Bouquet
This gorgeous bride’s bouquet was made for Toni and Mark’s wedding, by Fleur le Cordeur, with stunning imported peonies, roses and local flowers.
