Blushing Makoti’s idea came from my frustration from planning a wedding in Mzansi while abroad, i was planning my traditional wedding and i wanted information on the latest traditional trends, style,colors and fashion in Mzansi including suppliers. All i could find was mostly white wedding ideas from overseas websites rather than finding them in Mzansi, but i was looking for traditional wedding ideas.

I had to rely on my sisters asking people and having long conversations about what i want and how i wanted it to be done over the phone. I then decided to create a website and a blog about all Mzansi’s Makoti’s frustration, wedding idea’s, where to find vendors and who are the best vendors in the province, whats are the latest wedding trends and where and how to get it.

I will also be sharing South African wedding pictures, including covering the stories behind the wedding scene from Bo Makoti and their experiences during the planning of the wedding.

    This is exactly what was missing in all these wedding sites, a touch of Tradition. You did a great job, love this…and there’s some inspiration here too.
