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:
5. The Peony Bouquet
This bridal bouquet was made with a contrasting combination of soft peonies and dry olive tree leaves for Sarah and Marcel’s wedding at Boschendal.
6. The Perfectly Pink Bouquet
This perfectly formed bride’s bouquet with perfect soft pink roses was made for Danielle and Warren’s wedding at Waterkloof Estate by Blooming Décor.
7. The Simplistic Bouquet
This simplistically modern bridal bouquet was made from St Joseph lilies for Sarah and Toni’s wedding at The 12 Apostles Hotel.
As a Cape Town wedding planner, I’ve been only too proud to hand over countless perfect bouquets to brides on their wedding day and I hope this collection of pictures will serve as some inspiration for your own wedding too!
Until next time,
