Create an Orchid Wedding in Cape Town

by Ellen Olivo Flower arrangement Cape Town

Orchid for me is the ultimate symbol of beauty and dignity. They have been my favorites ever since I remember. As my mother reminisces it captured my fancy as early as a baby when my father bought a bouquet of orchids for my mother on their anniversary. I played with it for hours and hours. Even when they had dried, I wasn't ready to part with them. I guess I had decided at that tender age to have an orchid wedding later on in life.


When the moment arrived, I did not have to think much about the theme of the Orchid wedding. In fact, everyone knew before I told them. But, the toughest task in life is to put your thoughts into action. It is the toughest hurdle to be crossed. Though I had decided to have all Orchid arrangements cape town for the wedding, it remained undecided how to implement it in my budget. My movement started the day I got engaged. I had six months and a lot of work was to be done.

To get over this, I visited the internet and had a closer look at all the various Florists cape town using orchids. Though white is my favorite color, I was not sure whether or not to have an all-white wedding.


The next big thing was to use it well. I met a Rileys Wild Bunch and shared my desire with them. they stated on using two or more colors in the decor with the white orchids to add drama to it. I liked his idea and gave my nod. The next few days were truly tiring.


Here's what we did

They helped me in planning without charging a penny. Contrary to the belief that flower theme weddings are expensive, mine wasn't. I am sure you all would want to know how?


First off, I went to a local florist Rileys Wild Bunch

Remember; always choose locally grown and seasonal flowers. Find a local florist, one who is also good at decoration. Hiring him would mean that you save a lot of money extorted by the massive wedding planners.

Then all of us sat down to plan how we could use orchids at different places.


The bouquet

Of course, this was on the top of the bucket list. If you have forgotten, it was my wedding. This had to be the best and I asked him to make an exclusive bouquet which he did. Have a look below.

My bouquet was made from white orchids dendrobium and cymbidium orchids mixed with seagrass and hypericum.

The bridesmaids carried green orchids as they wore a different color dress. Together, we all made such a lovely picture.


The cake

The wedding cake too incorporated my favorite flower. It was decorated with a green orchid flower.


Next, the d├ęcor of the venue

I selected red, purple, blue, and white orchids for centerpieces. Have a look at what my florist did with my idea. Isn't it amazing?

The entryway table had a nicely prepared orchid centerpiece - eye-catching and pleasing.


All arrangements of phalaenopsis orchid lined up the aisle at the ceremony.

As I wanted different arrangements for different tables, he made it possible by designing different centerpieces for different tables.

It was done by my instructions as I wanted to have a big centerpiece for the main table - truly breath-taking.

Submerged orchids make a bold statement.

Hope the aforementioned information is of help to the couples getting married soon.
