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. ..lol…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!
