Beauty Sightings: Beautiful Bridesmaid Photos

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

Speaking from someone who is having a huge bridal party I love looking at bridesmaid pictures and gaining inspiration from poses to overall looks. I've come across some pictures that make my mouth drop and some that have me scratching my head like...okay that's interesting, lol! So I'm just sharing some pics with you that I've collected so far!

all photos taken from my fave wedding TUMBLR

My jaw dropped at these dresses.

Really HOT pic!

They MUST be fans of Sex & The City! Tres chic :-)

This reminds me of the Disney princesses! I love it!

THISSSSS is my vision! I LOVE chiffon!

Can YOU tell which one is the bride?? I'm not sure why it looks like they all have on the same dress, lol.

Whew!! I thought my bridal party was large, lol they look beautiful though!

So many different shades but works!
That would be me all the way on the left throwing up gang signs to the camera, loll!

Country girls!

I think I'm gonna try this pose...what do you guys think? Need a few cheesy ones in there!

Tell me what you think about these looks?? DO you think you could go the mismatch dress route? Did your bridesmaids wear matching looks? What are your opinions on it? Talk to me!!

BEAUTIFUL BCG Wedding: Dupe & Yanju

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

I am excited to share with you another beautiful wedding the BCG design team was blessed to be a part of this past year. Now before I say anything else PURPLE is my FAVORITE color...if that wasn't already obvious lol! So needless to say I am in LOVEEE with this decor! I love the flowers, the washed in purple lighting effects, and the venue just looks gorgeous! I'm presenting you with Dupe and Yanju Cole of Bowie, MD! Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful day with us and even being kind enough to answer a couple of questions for our readers :-)

How did you meet the love of your life?

We met at a mutual friends baby shower - The daddy to be was his friend and the mommy to be my friend

What do you love about your spouse?

Almost everything! Lol, His love and sense of family is at the top of the list; followed by his sense of humor

What was the most stressful part of wedding planning? And how did you deal with it?

The most stressful part was probably the budget.  There were times when we had no choice but to alter the budget, some of it took a toll on us…In the end we came to a lot of compromise


What's the best part of wedding planning?

There were a couple of them but it all comes down to the fact that 

We got to spend a lot of extra time together making decisions, imagining what the day would be like, talking about it and planning what we thought we would do in certain situations.…We also got to meet a lot of great people including our vendors and have since formed wonderful relationships with them.

Would you do anything different?
I can’t think of anything I would have done differently

Favorite part of your wedding? 

Funny, I enjoyed every single minute of the day. There were too many special moments to particular pick a favorite. One of them was when we were saying our vows…It just felt really deep.  There was also the surprise recording that was showed of some of our closest friends and family members saying something nice about us and it ended with my husband making “eternal promises”

Any advice for planning brides?
Start planning as early as possible. At least speak to vendors and secure them early if possible. They’ll accommodate the changes later. Please, please and please, ask for contracts and actually read them. If it’s a family member doing you a favor, confirm with them via email or text messages with exactly the plan or agreement is. Finally, determine in your heart that regardless of what is done or not done on the day off, you’ll enjoy your day…and of-course enjoy it! Focus on you and your man!
