Gorgeous Lobola Celebration With The Bride Dressed In Rich Factory

posted in: Home | 0

So I just could not resist sharing part of this wedding. It is going to be in the next issue of bontle bride magazine.  I wish I could share everything with you right now my loves but all in good time. You can still grab a copy of issue 1 here. Hurry though they won’t be here forever and the postage is free. Yay!

Atlegang and her hubby remind me so much of my husband and I. We were both so young back then and it baffled people as to why we wanted to get married but 11years later we are still going strong. Seeing young love grow and grow is something very special indeed and I wish these two many many blessed years together. ENJOY

The Love Story
We met at a vacation programme at a law firm in 2013 but only started being friends in 2015 whilst working for the same law firm. He was just my friend but he kept asking me out. In October 2015, he finally succeeded.
The Proposal
He proposed on his birthday in May 2017 at a place we had visited the day before we started dating. I had suspected it was gonna happen as we hardly visited that place. After having breakfast at that spot, he asked to say a poem. He “recited” the poem and fumbled. He then decided not to read the poem but rather speak from his heart and proposed.

The Suppliers
Most of my suppliers are people I had used before or people referred to by family. My mom and her team did the décor and catering. Nothing fancy seeing that it was just Magadi.

Culture.
It was Magadi(lobola celebration)so it was entirely traditional. We will soon do the celebration in the EC at my husbands home.

If you were to describe your wedding in 7 words what would they be?
FUN, EXCITING, FAMILY ORIENTED, LOVE, CULTURAL, DANCE, HAPPINESS

Best Moment
Walking out of my grandmother’s house to be collected by my husband, as well as my grandmother’s speech.

The Dress
I was actually undecided. The style changed so many times and I eventually had to decide. I am generally not dramatic in my dress sense so I kept it simple. I did not cry.

Advice
Plan and budget accordingly

Looking Forward
Companionship, friendship, travelling together and having kids
