Lamide and Wale celebrated their traditional and white weddings recently at LTV and K&G Events Centre, Ikeja. Their gorgeous occasion was planned by Zapphaire Events and gleamed with vibrant shades of red, yellow, silver and gold.
I read a lot of articles that start with ‘It’s wedding season again!’ and it makes me wonder what time of the year the writer is referring to. I actually think that as much as we try to promote equality of status in Nigeria, or in the world at large, we subconsciously think of wedding season as the time around the more extravagant weddings that we’ve read about in Ovation or on Sugar! Weddings. The longer the ‘celebration week’ and the bigger the pageantry of the ceremonies we observe, the more sense it makes to call it wedding season. True or False?
Yanju and Jimi celebrated their nuptials last weekend at the Muson Centre, Onikan, Lagos. Their sultry colours, hues of bronze and green set just the right tone at their reception. Their beautiful wedding was planned by Just Weddings. View their wedding album for more.
Sunshades and I have a relationship in the style of a one-night stand. All plans to accommodate one have been perished as I am promised to a pair of Grita-framed lenses, by prescription. However, I do have a five-stud card trick to ace that wade in the shades.
I stumbled upon these rings by Yoon Jungyun from South Korea that have inner letters which leave an imprint on your finger (you know how rings you've worn for a long time leave a mark on your finger? Same effect, only this time your finger is marked with a message). The engagement ring says "Marry Me" on the inside, while the wedding band says "Always". How creative is that?
So Demola met my mum…its time to meet the Fockers…uhm hmm, I'm doing the movie titles again, lol. This is sort a contrast though or is it an oxymoron, because my meeting Demola’s Mum was nothing like ‘Meeting the Fockers’…absolutely nothing like it.
The Tejuosho and Ogunkanmi families celebrated the delightful union of Bosoye and Idowu in Abeokuta recently. Their red/blue and green/yellow colour selections for the white and traditional wedding respectively set a vibrant mood at the occassion.
Men are from Mars and women are from Venus…even though I haven't read this John Gray's New York Times bestseller, I have seen Mel Gibson's movie "What Women Want". A healthy relationship takes two to tango and if we men can sit through a hundred and thirty minutes of a female-sensitivity proficiency test, women too could do with a few tips on meeting our needs. Here is our manifesto on figuring us out.
The Ezenwa and Uduji families came together in the celebration of love between their daughter and son, Oge and Emeka. The marriage was solemnized at Arch Bishop Vinning Cathedral, GRA Ikeja while the reception took place at Etal Hotel and Halls, Oregun, Ikeja.
Lets face it, with the exception of Angelina Jolie and perhaps Brad Pitt, nobody is perfect. Despite this salient truth we get so picky when choosing our future partners - 'Oh, she's too fat', 'Neh, he's too short', Argh! she's too hairy', 'God-no! he's got man-boobs'…You may not have said any of these statements but I bet you were thinking of something similar or even worse - shame on us. Now you've got to be asking for a lot if you expect every person you date to be wearing a chastity belt (I seriously hope this is still not being practised in some lost civilization).
A peek into a recent bride's closet will most likely yield a lonely wedding dress hanging in some sort of protective covering. Considering all the excitement that goes into dress shopping it's amazing how quickly 'the dress' is forgotten for whatever reason. While most women hold on for sentimental reasons, keep in mind that your dress can give the same joy and excitement it brought you, to another woman. Still not sure what to do? Here are some ideas...
