"This is your day, so don't let anyone tell you how you should celebrate."
BLP: What was the overall vision for your wedding?
Whitney: On November 8th, 2019 at Sandals Grand Resort in Saint Lucia at the Water Chapel. I fell in love with the beauty of the island. A destination wedding was the best decision that I could have made for my special day.
BLP: How was it maintaining your budget?
Whitney: I definitely exceeded my budget because everything that you could think of, went wrong. I had to get a back up for everything. Unfortunately, I did not like noting that I received. My bouquet was a disaster, I did not like my dress, my makeup artist couldn't get my correct shade, my flight cancelled several times, and so much more.
I was so stressed going to Saint Lucia because it seemed like I had the worst luck. But thank God, the day turned out absolutely amazing and everything came together and was perfect.
BLP: Who were your vendors?
Wedding Dress: @kpalace_
Planner: @broadhilltravel (Sharon)
BLP: How was it creating the guest list?
Whitney: Only our close friends and family came. It was about 20 people, and it turned out great. We had such a great time. Our guest stayed at the resort for four days and three nights.
BLP: What would your advice be for future brides?
Whitney: No matter how bad things may seem to be, focus on the beauty of your covenant. Once I stopped stressing over the minor mishaps, this turned out to be the best day of my life. This is your day, so don't let no one tell you how you should do celebrate. I didn't let no one see my dress details until the day of the wedding, not even my bridesmaids. I just didn't want anyones opinion to effect my decision to go against traditions. And that was the best decision I could have ever made. This day turned out perfect for me!
BLP: How does it feel now that the wedding is over?
Whitney: Now that the wedding is over, I feel a huge sense of relief. There is no stress about planning, and I can enjoy my husband. We had such a great time at this resort that we already booked again, for our one year anniversary. Love is beautiful, when you are loved the right way.
