Mpumi and Joseph's Big Day

12 June 2017
How they ticked off every item on their wish list.

Mpumi and Joseph had only four items on their wish-list; four items that would make their wedding perfect. They wanted the perfect suit for Jospeh, the perfect dress for Mpumi, and the perfect decor and sound and entertainment.

On the first day of missions, the couple took Nomsa aong to tackle two items on their wish list: Joseph's suit, and the decor. First stop was back at Jospeh's place, where the crew got to see Jospeh's suit. It was a bit of a tug-of-war between the couple. Mpumi wanted to see her groom in a plain navy suit, but Jospeh's vision of an indigo and maroon checkered suit with a maroon waistcoat won.

Second on the list of things to take care of was the reception venue decor. For that, the couple trusted Molly Mahlangu to realise their vision. Molly outdid herself, and presented the couple with sample tables of glass tables, with phoenix chairs. Tall, fresh flower centrepieces adorned the tables, and  mint and gold napkins accented with gold jeweled napkin rings lay next to crystal champagne flutes. The bride explained that se chose the mint and gold napkin rings because they were clean and understated, while the napkin rings brought the bling factor without being lurid.

The second day of missions began at the bridal boutique, where the bride was to show Nomsa her gown, accompanied by her mother and sister. Mpumi switched things up, and decided to display her reception gown instead of her white wedding gown. She was keeping the white gown a a secret to be unveiled at the wedding. For her reception gown, the bride chose a periwinkle fit and flare satin dress with peplum detail and some lace running along the bottom of the gown.

Last on the list of things to plan was the sound and entertainment. The groom was excited at the thought of a five-piece live band, and they would need to get properly kitted out. For that, they got a drum set, two keyboards and a PA system.
