We met through mutual friends watching a Bengals game at BW3’s
Derrick tricked me into thinking he bought a new bed, spur of the moment of course, which I would not have approved of since I wanted a ring! He took me upstairs to show me the bed and on the night stand was the ring, a bottle of champagne, 2 glasses and a dozen roses. Then he knelt down and proposed! Just for the record, there was no new bed.
We tried to make it about us. We kept it classic and elegant, nothing over the top. We just wanted it to be a night to celebrate with all of the people we love, and we did! It was everything we could have asked for and more!
Our most challenging part was picking the date and location. After that, there were lots of decisions to be made but we had fun with it. My advice is to always remember that it is your day and ultimately you need to make decisions based upon what YOU want. It was the best day of my life and with the help of my mom we planned mine and Derrick’s perfect day. Don’t get stressed over the little things, enjoy the process!
We looked into lots of different vendors. We checked out vendors that we heard of through word of mouth, internet and magazines. What helped us was finally realizing the type of wedding we wanted to achieve and as you meet with people you get a feel for if they’ll be a good fit or not. Budget is also a major factor!
