      I love to read comments but never write one down :( Teenaaa I totally agree with you. I recently got married and frequently visit this site in hopes to get trad ideas …na only yoruba…though i love their style but i had to represent my tribe on my special day in NY

        @Teeenaaa and Kem,

        I have to co-sign. The BN wedding feature is completely yoruba-nized.

      its not tribalism, ITS WHO SUBMITS! this website is run by an IBO woman (i think) soo please its who submits and frankly who looks the best. Yoruba and Edo weddings are kind of amazing!!

      • sassycassie September 25, 2012 at 8:33 am

        AS MUCH YOU TRIED , YOU JUST COULDNT HIDE YOUR ETHNIC BIGOTRY . WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY ‘WHO LOOKS BEST?’. NIGERIAN ETHNIC WEDDINGS ARE BEAUTIFUL IN GENERAL! PERIOD.

  • Etiosa12 September 25, 2012 at 9:28 am

    I bought the WED magazine, last week and I was really pissed when I found out that all the trad.wedding attires where from Yoruba cultures. Its really annoying but the true is that its not only Bella naija or WED magazine that are guilty of this, all wedding magazines and wedding sites focus mainly on Yoruba weddings. There are over 300 ethnic groups in this country and with beautiful wedding cultures and we like to see their concepts too. @Bella naija, how can pple send their wedding pictures to you to publish on your site???

    • Damilare Aiki September 25, 2012 at 12:32 pm

      Dear Etiosa12, please send an e-mail to weddings (at) bellanaija (dot) com

    • ao September 26, 2012 at 3:35 am

      I bought their very first issue and realized that it was a yoruba focused wedding magazine. I will not be buying again.

  • Hope September 25, 2012 at 10:48 am

    well can the people who come to look for ideas from other tribes submit their own wedding pics. As mentioned earlier if only yorubas are comfortable enough to send their pics why are you complaining. so my naija pips send your pics let us see all the different variety and cultures in wedding ceremonies in nigeria.

  • na me September 25, 2012 at 11:03 am

    I like the girl on blue she looks like she is about to start dancing.oya pakurumo ko jo dada lol.I am so getting this magazine.BEAUTIFUL

  • AdaLemmy September 25, 2012 at 11:36 am

    There is never weddings from other tribes in WED EXPO, only yoruba. Even majority of the weddings posted by bellanaija is yoruba.you guys should expand your search, we have 250 tribes and counting in Nigeria and beautiful cultures that people dont even know about. lets learn to promote our rich cultural heritage in Nigeria and not just concentrating on a particular culture because we think they are more influential or something. There are cultures richer and more beautiful than the yoruba or igbo culture. it may seem to the outside world that when you talk about tradition and culture in Nigeria, its just Igbo and Yoruba, especially YORUBA.

    • sassycassie September 25, 2012 at 2:35 pm

      can we stop this crap?! every culture has its own uniqueness!

  • Anabel September 25, 2012 at 11:39 am

    Please oh is the girl in blue Ronke Abiuwa that contested in face of sleek?

    • Moyo September 25, 2012 at 11:05 pm

      Yeah she is the one,she was in my school before redeemers university.she was not really the social type,the babe is going places.

    • Moyo September 26, 2012 at 12:34 am

      Yeah its her.she was in my school before redeemers university.she is very pretty,the babe is going places oh.goodluck to her.

  • Purpleicious Babe September 25, 2012 at 3:36 pm

    Addressing some comments about Yoruba people and tribalism etc.

    Pls brides and grooms of different ethnicity and culture, abeg submit your pictures am sure BN is keen to show case pictures from different brides. YES, yorubas and ibos are usually featured because a) they submit their pictures more (i assume)
    b)They are probably more popular.

    Not trying to say other ethics are not, but am sure if we saw more we would be enlightened and I think the producers of the Mag/WED should think outside the box in terms of expanding their target market and feature other ethnic groups (which might take alot of time and research to an extent).

    So pls before we get into a spider web argument and go around in circles, let submit pics and if you are of a different tribe pls invited BN Photographers to your wedding…

    xoxoxo

    i dont think bellanaija searches for people’s weddings. that’s not the way it works. if you have wedding to showcase then you contact them. if they’ve been showing mostly weddings from yoruba it’s probably cos the people that give them wedding to showcase are majorly yorubas. i think the ideal thing is to ask people from other tribes to please send their wedding info/pix to them. that way they’ll show more of other tribe. if they dont have what to show (from other tribes) then what more do you expect them to do? as the saying goes ” you cant give what you dont have”

  • Ify September 28, 2012 at 10:27 am

    It is not BN’s fault that other tribes are not proud of where they come from.Half of all the Ibo and delta brides only wear the ibo atire onece during their trad.Most of teh time they always use aso-oke probably cos its colourful.until u send ur pic and it is not published, pls zip it
    Besides why are we fighting over 2 pics from a 365 pages long publication?buy this editiona nd condemn it afterwards.
    As an aside, pls whatever happened to the alakija wedding?the one where the bride is a triplet?i tried to ogle the picturs again and it had absolutely vanished.I am very sure i saw it on friday.Kindly bring it bak BN that wedding most definitely trumped Stephanie’s own in class, style and versatilty.Fenks.Ify

  • Nomy October 1, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    lai lai! wed magazine does this deliberately, every time its one yoruba attire or another, the sad part is that i actually believe they lack imagination and innovation, they are not trying to be tribalistic or anything! I don’t touch WED o, am totally Igbo and i can’t but the magazine for ideas cos they don’t have anything for me! Bellanaija you can do better too, true you have Igbo weddings, some of which i have learnt a thing or two from, but you focus yoruba and i don tire! Thank God other people don dey tire too dey talk their own!

  • zika October 5, 2012 at 2:30 pm

    yeah i was gng 2 say d same thing, u neva find ibo styles in wedding mags. its so difficult finding rili nice contemporary ibo traditional outfits…:(

  • bola October 13, 2012 at 9:04 pm

    pls how can I get a copy of the magazine?
