Boutique Bridal Concepts

Luxury Wedding Experts

Boutique Bridal Concepts is the brain child of Ursula Forrest.  Ursula whilst planning her own wedding many years ago, realised the need for a distinctive, luxury wedding website that connected premium wedding suppliers with discerning bridal couples from around the world. 
The aim of Boutique Bridal Concepts is to provide a platform for luxury wedding vendors to showcase their products and services in an on-line platform that is reflective of the high quality of their products, brands and services to elite bridal couples planning their destination wedding in South Africa or globally for that matter!
Taking it one step further, Ursula realised the need to form collaborative partnerships with the top wedding suppliers in order to ensure bridal couples from around the world can better interact with wedding suppliers and obtain all the information they require to make decisions regarding their wedding planning. Boutique Bridal Concepts is therefore one of the only wedding websites globally to offer wedding vendors their own complete website within our website - allowing our discerning wedding couples to find all the crucial information they need from a wedding vendor in one place in one wedding portal.
Boutique Bridal Concepts is therefore uniquely positioned to provide expert wedding knowledge to our discerning bridal couples through high quality and up to date information. 
Combined with our luxury wedding website showcasing elite wedding suppliers in South Africa and globally, we are also a  full service wedding planning company. We offer a bespoke, tailor-made wedding planning service from conceptualization to creation. We offer this service in conjunction with carefully selected collaborative wedding vendors based on your personal wedding needs and preferences.
