OK ..when this couple first approached us to discuss their wedding plans – I knew this was going to be very different.. The initial contact was made by the Mother of the Bride Marilyn (more on her later) and from the first phone call I felt this client was going to be quite different.
Marilyn wanted to meet with us before we moved forward in any way and she arrived at our premises with her Daughter, Joy – Bride to be. They both had lots of questions which we answered and following this, we arranged a tasting session – We had lots of feedback on the food and some changes were recommended all of which we noted and put into the plans for the wedding.
Then I asked what is your colour theme for the day – BLACK & WHITE – said Joy. In my head I thought …Oh dear !!!! I had never seen this used for a wedding – Funerals ..Yes but not for a wedding. Marilyn looked at me and smiled … I know what you are thinking but yes it will be Black and white ONLY … and it will look stunning.
Well on the day of the wedding was she right or what ….. Just take a look at the pictures:

Joy and Yomi and Joy’s Parents have become more than just clients to us – Marilyn inspired me to think outside of the box and her attention to detail was second to none. Always in a soft spoken voice she will tell you what she wants with an encouraging smile.
Oh I forgot about the food … well here is the menu of the day and from all the feedback it all went down really well …
Suya & Onions On Sticks Garnished With Mixed Peppers (Hot / Mild)
Vegetarian Spring Rolls
Main & Accompaniments
KFC Style Chicken
Jerk Chicken / Curried Goat
Meat In Stew (Mild)
Spicy Fish With Onions & Mixed Peppers (Filleted Red Brim / Hake/ Red Brim )
So far, not many people are aware of the importance of having wedding websites. Outlined in this article are some of the benefits of owning a wedding website, and what the site should include for it to benefit your guests.
Save on Printing Costs
If you need wedding invitation cards printed, you already know how costly it is. But by redirecting everyone to your website, you will not only save money but also time and effort on printing costs. For that reason, you need a wedding website to cut down matrimony costs.
You can Personalize It
It is easy to make the website more personal. Actually, many suppliers make it possible for you to personalize your wedding color scheme to suit your needs. You are also able to add photos and a forum for your guests to chat on. This makes the page a nice taster for your precious day. Thus, you can begin building excitement earlier before the big day.
Your information is secure when it is in a website. You need to find a supplier who provides password-protected access to the website. As such, only people with the password will be able to view your information. Thus, you will have kept crucial information confidential.
Easy to Manage Your Guest List
It is very easy to set up your virtual wedding gift list in a website. That way, you can easily send out invitations and get RSVPs sent directly to the site. This means you can effectively set up your table plan online. By so doing, you will have kept all your vital wedding information in an organized way without having a lot of paperwork.
Saves on Phone Calls
If you include the website’s address to your invitation cards, your guests will spend some of their time checking it out online. This means you will save money on phone calls since you had to call them up and inform them about the ceremony.
Easy to Add Extra Information
It is easy to add things to your wedding website. This helps your guests stay updated. You can add things such as directions to the venue. Other information you may consider adding include wedding countdown clock and weather forecast to help guests plan their outfits.
Easy to Change Plans
In case you want to change the plan of your wedding, it is very easy to do this in your website. In fact, it may take less than 5 minutes to include info such as change of venue, weather updates and many other changes. Also, you can add updates as the big day approaches so that people stay informed.
It is Eco-friendly
No matter how much you use it, your website will save you money on paper and stamps. Since papers come from trees, it means you are going to conserve the environment by using less paper. Carbon emissions in paper-making industries will also be minimized. Papers also litter the compound, so if you choose not to use them you are actually doing favor to the environment.
