A FLORAL WORLD RECORD!

THE LONGEST BRIDAL BOUQUET IN THE WORLD ON INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

Sarah Dikker officially is Holland’s Best Flower Arranger. Last weekend at the Love & Marriage Fair in Utrecht, Netherlands, she and her team managed to make the longest bridal bouquet ever. The work was done on International Women’s Day, the 8th of March. Our colleague Roy van der Voort reports.

It was a long weekend in Utrecht for Sarah Dikker. To produce a bouquet that would top the previous world record of 65 meters was not a piece of wedding cake. Sarah was assisted by scholars from two Dutch floral colleges. Aim was to produce a bridal bouquet of 100 meters, but when all flowers were used this turned out to be 109 meters in total. By any means a new world record that will appear in the next edition Guinness Book of World Records.

One of the most prominent flowers in the wedding bouquet was the Spray Alstroemeria Charmelia Bridesmaid, winner of the DFG Award 2014, Glass Tulip 2015 and the wedding flower for 2015. Grower Fedor van Veen of Together2Grow was present to personally check his 600 Charmelias in the the bridal arrangement and to congratulate Sarah with her amazing achievement.
