All about Angie!!!

My DMV (DC, Maryland, & Virginia) brides and bridal party members,

I am going to tell you right now that Angie C is awesome!!! She deserves a grade of A+++++. She is currently working on my Reem Acra gown and she added a lace up with a satin panel to my gown. What a superb job she has done!

Since I won’t be available to provide Angie’s information to you (going away for my wedding), here is her email address: acav5@verizon.net. Please let her know that Tope (aka. naijablue7 aka. lady from Nigeria) referred you.

Also, when I spoke to her she stated that she is booked until September. So please contact her for September alterations for your dresses.

Good luck!

Hello everyone,

I am back and Friday is my last post for the month of June until August. Yeh, I know long vacation, Right!!

But its never to busy to praise GOD for his existence and the wonderful things he has done in my life. I have not forgotten about any of you future brides and trust me, while I’m away I will be checking any comments from my blog.

Please don’t stop sending questions, concerns, words of encouragement, wedding wishes, and etc.

3 months to go!!!

Hi everyone,

I’ve been busy lately, but I’ve got to grace my page on April Fool’s Day.

So, I now have 3 months to go and things are great!!!

FI and I have finally taken our engagement pictures and Dotun, the photographer was excellent during the photo shoot. (www.dotunsphotolounge.com) I can’t wait to get the pictures back. Also Kebra of Elan Image Consulting made me look glamorous. (www.elanimageconsulting.com).


Also, 2 weeks ago I worked on a DIY project for my bridal party. I created a Will you be my bridesmaid invitation.

Check this out:


 The next DIY project is the Bridal Shower invitations.

Hello World,

Thank you so much for viewing my blog. I hope I have provided enough information for any bride to get her Nigerian wedding plans started. Because I am so ready for mines and I continue to pray that the events will be successful. Amen!!!

PPT about Nigeria

Hi everyone,

I know a few people may be getting mad at me right now because I promised to create a newsletter about my wedding plans. Well its still not created yet and I am now debating on whether I will create one. But for now, please continue to check out this wedding blog because its alot easier for me to put interesting information here.

If you are interested in traveling to Nigeria, please check this slide I’ve created. Its short and to the point. I created it for my Instructional Technology course last term (MA degree).
