Are you a Bride of the People for the people?
Are you a Family affair bride?
Are you Miss Fuss pot (the perfectionist)?
Are you The Controlling Bride?
Are you the Competitive bride?
Bridezilla: is all of the above.
Are you a girl just wanna have fun?
Are you The Hopelessly Romantic?
Why is it that people go to a wedding where tables are clearly marked reserved yet you want to sit there? Very irritating, if you were that important don’t you think the tables will be marked with your name.

Destination weddings are in whether for efiziee or other reasons.
What exactly is a Destination Wedding?
Formerly the exclusive domain of celebrities and the ultra-rich, Destination Weddings have in recent years become accessible to more and more couples looking to add an "exotic twist" to their special ceremony. Properly planned, a destination wedding can turn your wedding day into an unforgettable "mini-vacation" for you and your guests. It is also very intimate and fun.. Will I need a wedding coordinator to handle the ceremony at my destination wedding location?
Depending on the ceremony details, it is recommended that you work with someone to help finalize the details. Many resorts and hotels have on-site wedding coordinators, who maintain reputable local vendor lists, and can help organize your big day. If you can afford a Nigerian planner who can deal with your Nigerian guests the better but make sure she/he is able to travel out of the country J

Rants of the week
Our 2 rants of the week have been done before but more and more people keep doing it.
Brides who wear gloves - whats up with that, now the grooms who wear gloves (comon now) . Can someone tell us what the reason for the gloves and please dont say style.
Okay people, what is up with you grooms and brides that can not tell your groom(s) that WEARING SUNGLASSES ON YOUR SPECIAL DAY IS JUST RAZZ (local). It is understandable if the bridal photo shoot is outside and he is with his groomsmen. But sitting on the high table, dancing into the hall, during your engagement/wedding ceremony and most annoying while taking intimate bridal portraits. VERY VERY VERY VERY RAZZ, so if you never knew, now you do!!!!
Question of the week?
How early should you start planning your wedding?
See you again 18.05.09

How is everyone doing, hope you had a nice weekend? We came across this article on Oprah.com and thought to share. Some of the questions might not apply to Nigerians but we thought it was quite interesting. Let us know what you think. We have been getting lots of emails about us and our companys, so if you are new to wedding vogue or to any of our works, we have added a little intro. Have a great week!

Twenty Questions to Ask Before You Get MarriedYou may think that you and your fiancee have talked about everything, but have you discussed the issues that will make your marriage work? Answer these questions from Susan Pivers with your partner, and work towards a shared vision of what your relationship can be.
What percentage of our income are we prepared to spend to purchase and maintain our home on a monthly or annual basis?
Who is responsible for keeping our house and yard cared for and organized?
Are we different in our needs for cleanliness and organization?
Is one or both of us neat? Messy? A "pack rat?" An organizational wizard?
How much money do we earn together? Now? In one year? In five years? Ten?
Who is responsible for which portion? Now? In one year? Five? Ten?
What is our ultimate financial goal regarding annual income, and when do we anticipate achieving it? By what means, and through what efforts?
What are our categories of expense (rent, clothing, insurance, travel)? How much do we spend monthly, annually, in each category? How much do we want to be able to spend? Now? In one year? Five? Ten?
How much time will each of us spend at work, and during what hours? Do we begin work early? Will we prefer to work into the evening?
If one of us doesn't want to work, under what circumstances, if any, would that be okay?
How ambitious are you? Are we comfortable with the other's level of ambition?
Am I comfortable giving and receiving love, sexually? In sex, does my partner feel my love for him or her?
Are we satisfied with the frequency of our lovemaking? How do we cope when our desire levels are unmatched? A little? A lot? For a night? A week? A month? A year? More?
Health and Food
Do we eat meals together? Which ones? Who is responsible for the food shopping? Who prepares the meals? Who cleans up afterward?
Is each of us happy with the other's approach to health? Does one have habits or tendencies that concern the other (e.g., smoking, excessive dieting, poor diet)?
What place does the other's family play in our family life? How often do we visit or socialize together? If we have out-of-town relatives, will we ask them to visit us for extended periods?
How often? For what length of time?
If we have children, what kind of relationship do we hope our parents will have to their grandchildren? How much time will they spend together?
Will we have children? If so, when? How many? How important is having children to each of us?
How will having a child change the way we live now? Will we want or be able to take time off from work, or work a reduced schedule?
For how long? In the months or years following the birth of our child, will we need to rethink who is responsible for housekeeping?
Community and Friends
Are we satisfied with the quality and quantity of friends we currently have? Would we like to be more involved socially? Are we overwhelmed socially, and do we need to cut back on such commitments?
What are my partner's needs for cultivating or maintaining friendships outside of our relationship? Is it easy for me to support those needs, or do they bother me in any way?
Do we share a religion? Do we belong to a church, synagogue, mosque or temple? More than one? If not, would our relationship benefit from such an affiliation?
Does one of us have an individual spiritual practice? Is the practice and the time devoted to it acceptable to the other? Does each partner understand and respect the other's choices?
