It all started about 5yrs ago back in medical school…
Ope and his friends were the rockafellas on campus, they were the popular ones..lol. We never got to talk until one day when he called me by my first name on my way back from class.
I was surprised, couldn’t hide it and he said ‘dont be surprised, I see u around and I just wanted to say hi”. Somehow he got my number and that was the beginning of the long late night calls and friendship. We became inseparable.
Ours is a love that will last a lifetime, with 2 hearts that beat has one.
I can’t wait to marry my best friend!! Continue reading
I always preach about hiring a wedding planner. I did a post on wedding planners weeks back, they make life so much easier. Sometimes, it’s not always possible to hire one for some reason, and you are left to do the planning yourself. Planning your wedding is fun, but it can also be stressful and frustrating because you have no planner to take all that stress. You have to search out venues, get vendors, do the negotiating and then report your findings back to the people who matter; brainstorm together, reach an agreement and get back to the vendor for more negotiations. It can be quite irritating sometimes, making you feel like dropping everything and just going along with what every other person involved in the planning thinks or says.
I have read stories of couples who say they hardly fought through out the planning process. I find that hard to believe, although it might be true if they had a planner and enough cash for all they want. But trust me when I say if you are lacking one of the above, both of you will definitely fight. You will get irritable, so upset that you will fight with him/her over things you would normally ignore. You will argue over how much to spend on a particular vendor, give reasons why you want that particular thing, how he/she can get a vendor that will do it cheaper and how someone he/she knows did it or got a service at a lower price at their wedding.
So this time, I will be talking about wedding planners.
A wedding planner is a professional who ASSISTS with the design, planning and management of a client’s wedding.
Planning a wedding can be extremely stressful and quite exhausting. So it’s no surprise when we see brides looking fatigued on that one day that is all about them. Even when there is a wedding planner, you still have to make the major decisions and decide on a budget. The planner simply goes with what you want and helps plan a wedding within your budget.
While the stress can’t be totally eliminated, it can be alleviated. One way is by having a written and clearly laid down plan. Continue reading
Lets start with a substantial part of every wedding, THE WEDDING INVITE. All of us have received various wedding invites, ranging from those with the ‘wow’ effect to the ones that are just not acceptable in any way!!! Some say the invitation is practically useless after the wedding so why spend much? Well peeps, the invites say a whole lot. It gives the invitees an idea of the type of wedding to be attended. It affects their overall apparel, their choice of companion to the wedding(that is if the wedding isn’t “strictly by invitation”) and even the kind of gift they will get. If someone hands me an aesthetic invite, I sure will attend and I can say the same goes for most people. Continue reading
