A Glamorous Bloemfontein WeddingThe Proposal Story
“It was a normal day and he was visiting for the weekend. I walked into my bedroom and there was a huge bunch of flowers and a little box on top of the bed. I knew from his scared and flushed look on his face he was about to propose. It was so cute and intimate: exactly what I had expected for a proposal because he is such an introvert.”A Glamorous Bloemfontein Wedding

The Planning Process
“The planning process was quite hectic as I did everything myself. However, I got a lot of help from my friends and family. I had it all planned out in my head so it was not very difficult for me to execute because I knew how I wanted everything. I had a folder of all my vendors and important contacts. I also had a strict timeline that I tried to stick to.”

The Suppliers/Creative’
“Most of my suppliers I found online. I did a lot of interviews as well. To make sure that the supplier that I chose understood my vision and also that we had a connection.”A Glamorous Bloemfontein WeddingA Glamorous Bloemfontein Wedding

One Thing They’d Change
“My bridesmaids’ hair and makeup would be done earlier… (hahaha). Some of the activities of my wedding day were delayed because of that. So.. time allocation to every part of the day is very important.”A Glamorous Bloemfontein Wedding
