Wedding news:

Destination weddings are in whether for efiziee or other reasons.
What exactly is a Destination Wedding?

When a couple decides that they want to exchange their vows and celebrate their love in a dream location that they and their guests will have to travel to, they are deciding on a Destination Wedding. Destination weddings often take place in tropical areas such as the Caribbean, Mexico, or Hawaii. Others decide to celebrate their wedding in Europe, South America, or the South Pacific. Africa is very much ‘in hot’ demand now. The entire wedding party will travel to the destination and enjoy a long weekend - or an entire week - and be on vacation while attending the wedding. Destination weddings can cost less than traditional weddings.
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

OK about the sun glasses...c'mon... inside or outside... i want to see ur face in d pictures boo. then d gloves... on a personal note i like them... i feel like it is part of d wedding attire nd it depends on ur taste... (but not d full fingers or slippery ones) if its done to good taste i bet u'll love it.
Then about d wedding destination... it is sooo perfect...cos it is almost impossible to have a wedding in naija with under 400 guests (400 being too much already)... but i bet i dont have such luck since my grandma nd grandma inlaw wont be into flying out of d country... wow.. my luck
