World Record Winning Wedding Bouquets

The most expensive wedding bouquet as recorded in the Guinness Book of Records belongs to Vietnam. “Thien hoa bach ngoc” which translates to: thousands of flowers, hundreds of gemstones. As its name implies, this bouquet is bejewelled to the till. Picture a flower bouquet containing 90 two carat red ruby gemstones, 9 one carat diamonds, and 1 star-shaped ruby of 21.6 carats. As for flowers, the bouquet consisted of white roses, white lilies, white phaelopnosis orchids, and moonflowers. The bouquet also had other elements of nature incorporated into the bouquet. It hosted several kinds of stones, paints, feathers and a 100 year old root.

The idea behind this pricey bouquet was to represent 100 happy years for the couple- 100 gemstones, 100 year old root and probably 100 flowers. The price of this beauty: $125,000 USD. Last summer the bouquet was on display in Hanoi at the Ruby Plaza, one of Vietnam’s largest trade centers.

The longest wedding bouquet recorded so far was held by Suresh Joachim who in an effort to raise funds and to become famous attempted to break several world records in the Toronto, Ontario area. For his wedding on September 6, 2003 to Christa Rasanayagam, he had his bride carry a 60.09m (197ft) long bouquet. The wedding also featured a record 79 bridesmaids and 47 groomsmen.
