Owner/ Operator

Welcome to BDC Events, where we specialize in creative design and entertainment. Our philosophy is to offer your guests something they never expected, and will talk about for years to come.


Mandi Welch is the lead coordinator at BDC Events. She was married in 2013 and lives in Rockwall, Texas with her husband, Christopher and their dogs, Harley and Howdy.

Throughout her 20's, Mandi pursued her interest in anthropology through travel. From Europe to Africa, the Mediterranean to Central America, she has immersed herself in other cultures and developed a passion for their traditions, style and beauty.​ These experiences inspire the unique touch she adds to each event through design and entertainment.

Mandi Welch is a Trained Wedding Planner with certification from the American Association of Certified Wedding Planners. She started her career in corporate event planning while attending The Art Institute of Dallas. Following her education in Fashion Design, she went on to attend the University of North Texas to pursue a degree in Hospitality and Management. 

While attending UNT, she, together with her mother, opened Bella Donna Chapel in McKinney, Texas.

After three successful years building the business and organizing ceremonies, Mandi chose to return to the more creative side of events. She uses her education in design, love of travel, and experience in hospitality to create events that are truly unforgettable.
