Daniel and Thokozile have overcome insurmountable challenges in their relationship, including the passing away of their young child. Nothing les than a perfect wedding would be good enough to celebrate the love they share. To make their wedding perfect, the coupld declared that their wish list consisted of Thoko's wedding gown, the cake, and the reception venue decor. Off they went with Nomsa to make their dream wedding a reality.

The first stop of the missions day was ot the bridal boutique for the final fitting and pickup of Thoko's dress. The bridal consultant explained that Thoko had chosen a ballgown with a bling veil, a silhouette that would be perfect for her height and body type. The bride stepped into the changing rooms and stepped out in a stunning gown with a bedazzled bodice and sweetheart neckline. The joy was visible on her face, her smile was uncontained. She remarked that she felt like a queen, to which Nomsa said that she was glowing. The bride liked that her dress flattered her figure.

The next stop was to the oriental plaza, where the couple would pick up their cake. They chose a classic cake, however, some details ont he cake were not what they had asked for. The couple's theme colours were peach and blue, and they asked for peach flowers to adorn the cake alongside the blue ribbon. Instead, they found yellow flowers on the cake, a faux pas that the owner of the shop assured could be speedily corrected without compromising the polished look of the cake. The bride chose red velvet and vanilla as the flavours of the cake.

The final stop was to the reception venue, where Craig had a sample table laid out for the couple so they could have a sneak peak into what they decor would look like. The couple's peach and blue colours made representation on the table in a harmonious, understated and peacful way. One feature that stood out and made a bold statement was the flower centrepiece. It had peach flowers in different shades and intensities, and blue flowers, which Craig mentioned had be custom dyed for the ocassion. Everyone raised their champagne flutes and toasted to a perfect decor.
