1. Some of the other things I have noticed are poorly made bridesmaid’s dresses. Sometimes it takes the saying “don’t outshine the bride” to a whole different level.  For example if the seams aren’t done or the colour choice doesn’t suit the bridesmaids.On the extreme end, you have some brides that over embellish the bridesmaid’s dresses so much, that they look like they have just walked out of a do- it- yourself dress shop! Sorry to be harsh, but brides to be, please keep it simple. The beauty of most weddings, is knowing how to keep it simple whilst still being elegant and classy. Please DO NOT have too much bling or too many colours on your bridal train.

NO!                                                                                                  YES!

2.  The photographer you hire is almost as important as the dress you decide on.  They need to fit well, give you enough room to           adjust and also are able to make sure that you can look back on that moment, that time and place, and feel the same emotions captured on film. Some of the Photographers that I believe have proven to be excellent at this are: Jide Alakija, Atunbi Photography and Jide Odukoya.
