  1. Abang Mercy

    June 21, 2011 at 2:24 pm

    Mercy Johnson is likely to put on the Badgley Mischka A-Line Empire Waist embellished top tiered skirt dress. She is busty and that will definitely inform her choice of dress to wear on her BIG DAY. Am happy for the two of them. I wish you girls happy married life.

    all i know is that mercy should not subscribe to the strapless dress fad. she is full at the top n it may look tacky
    i love the ellie saab and the lhuillier

    • Elpee

      June 21, 2011 at 4:48 pm

      I have a very strong feeling she will have on a strapless dress and her lace front plus weird makeup

    All gowns are beautiful for mercy d monique lhuillier mermaid dress will luk gud on her or d Ellie saab and for Steph d khosiba gown or the Vera Wang sheath gown will be perfect on her

  5. Tiki

    June 21, 2011 at 2:34 pm

    Monique Lhuillier for Stephanie, she has the height and bone structure (and I hope, the poise!) to carry that long silhouette off, and I think Mercy’s curves would take the Elie Saab to another level…hope they see this!!

  6. Funmilade

    June 21, 2011 at 2:40 pm

    Mercy will make a mess of it…IMO

  7. anu

    June 21, 2011 at 2:51 pm

    Stephanice maybe has hope but Mercy… im not excited at all coz she hasnt got style

  8. Baby Dee

    June 21, 2011 at 3:06 pm

    Errrmmm, Mercy? Naaaa she ain’t got good taste so don’t expect anything with class.


    June 21, 2011 at 3:11 pm

    Mercy Johnson is gonna be wearing none of the above. lol.
    as for Stephanie, i have no idea, but i hope its something that works with her tall frame.

    • IDK

      June 21, 2011 at 4:41 pm

      Lol. You read my mind. Cmon now. Mercy Johnson would be wearing house of Nwocha.

    • Elpee

      June 21, 2011 at 4:49 pm

      LMAOOOOO my opinions exactly. With the way she was posing in that bridal shop? Lord im only hoping for an intervention.


      June 21, 2011 at 5:02 pm

      June 21, 2011 at 5:21 pm

      Yeah. You can’t go from trashy to classy overnight. Sheesh, these things take time.

    i wud hav luvd 4 mercy 2 get her dress custom-made by some one like Kosibah or Monique lhuillier (she’s known to make gorgeous bt modest gowns, which is what a bride should wear) cos of her unique body shape. Stephenie can rock dat pnina Tornia embellished gown

  12. Mary

    June 21, 2011 at 4:03 pm

    mercy will be wearing something close to the “princessque” ball gown, in order to flaunt her curves which she has no apology for, while for stephenie, i will say the badgley mischka a line, will do justice to her class.

  13. Austine

    June 21, 2011 at 4:16 pm

    Woteva! Its their biz!


    June 21, 2011 at 4:54 pm

    Anyone ooooooooo!!!

  15. My Name is Bond - Jemma Bond

    June 21, 2011 at 4:57 pm

    Those gowns were clearly made for skinny girls, and both Mercy and Stephanie happen to be women with curves.

  16. Anita

    June 21, 2011 at 5:04 pm

    I suggest MAI for mercy and Vera Wang for Stephenie

  17. Ms Fusspot

    June 21, 2011 at 5:17 pm

    They both need a darned good stylist and the special grace of Almighty God to look anywhere near classy…

  18. luchi

    June 21, 2011 at 5:33 pm

    all the best to both of them, they both have nice shapes, i just hope mercy wont wear something too revealing cos thats how she likes to dress up, i think whateva steph wears will suit her just fine, all in all, its how u carry urself dat day that matters. Mercy, plsssssssssssssssss! nothing tooooooooooooo tight, dont try to cut off ur circulation that day.

    • kemchi

      June 21, 2011 at 9:44 pm

      But BN asked us to predict what they might wear, abi? So our focus ain’t their marital bliss but what they shall look like on dat day.

    • Esterific

      July 1, 2011 at 3:41 pm

      That’s the right thing to say, its not the wedding ceremony, dress n all, but its the marriage. will it last?
      lets pray it last…

  23. mary007

    June 21, 2011 at 8:21 pm

    Only the last for Mercy and Step because of her body shape can rock any of the above

  26. DG

    June 22, 2011 at 4:53 am

    I am IN LOVE with the Monique Lhullier dress!!! Stephanie would look lovely in most of those gowns. Mercy just needs to be conscious of her voluptuous figure and dress appropriately.

  27. anjay

    June 22, 2011 at 8:10 am

    OMG I love that elie saab dress. Tried it when i was searching for a wedding dress but it was wayyyyyy above my budget!! Lovely Dress


    June 22, 2011 at 9:16 am

    Monique Lhuillier mermaid dress with off-shoulder sleeves! Me lovey!!!!!!!!!!!

  29. Funmi

    June 22, 2011 at 12:16 pm

    Mercy is likely to wear Elie by Elie Saab Chantilly lace & Pure silk wedding dress. While Steph is likely to wear Vera Wang – White for David’s Bridal Grecian Inspired Sheath Wedding Dress.

  30. Tomie

    June 22, 2011 at 12:55 pm

    I can tell that Mercy would be wearing a dress that would show off some skin, that’s the kind of person she is after all.

  31. Anna Fashionista

    June 22, 2011 at 1:52 pm

    Stephenie please do the Monique Lhuillier mermaid dress with off-shoulder sleeves, its just perfect for your body type and as for Mercy J..sweetheart(in Beyonce’s voice) the Elie by Elie Saab Chantilly lace & Pure silk wedding dress will do you justice. Take it on galfriend

  32. Natoday?

    June 22, 2011 at 3:30 pm

    mercy! mercy!! mercy!!! how many x did i call u? no disappoint me on your big day… Steph, a concentrated smile will do d magic… e ku pale mo o

  33. Sandra Aji

    June 22, 2011 at 3:55 pm

    i just wish both of them should be fashion conscious on dat day!

  34. Orexy

    June 22, 2011 at 4:26 pm

    Honestly, I think a simple A-line dress would suit Mercy, she must learn to carry herself with some class and that’s not by revealing too much cleavage. As for Steph, she can carry off the mermaid style dress because she has just the right curves to pull it off.
    I wish them both a happy married life.

  35. Africhic

    June 22, 2011 at 4:49 pm

    Happy life to both but i believe they will both wear a mermaid type dress, mercy will def show off her figure and and her no. one asset… we will see.

  37. kellypretty

  39. Purpleicious Babe

    June 22, 2011 at 11:37 pm

    Ok… I dont know about all the dresses in these pics… I wont go for any per say…

    I think both should be creative and do something that suits them and makes them happy…

    It ur your day and whatever u want so should be IT, providing that it looks great on u and adds to the value of ur figure and the day. Ur men should be in awe at the sight of the dress u are in and everything else including make-up and accessories.

    I do believe Steph can rock anything and she does have a classy sophisticated touch to her. I know she is likely to dazzle and take the show on the day.

    Mercy, I believe u in u sister, and although ur fashion has been critizied for a long time now, it can be easily improved.. Whatever u choose to wear, wear something u know u are proud of and will show the pics to ur kids and grand-kids someday with admiration.

    For Mercy Johnson: Since she is a full-
    figured woman, the
    best silhouette is
    the Off-shoulder gown which looks
    wonderful on a full bust. It
    draws our attention
    upward, emphasizes the
    shoulders and minimizes
    the chest. She should Keep her skirt
    narrow. Wearing a full skirt
    will make her look large
    both on top and bottom.
    Show off her arms, back
    and a little bustline.
    A corset-style bodice with
    lacing will highlight her
    upper body.

    For. Stephanie Okereke: The empire waist is another
    good choice. The empire is
    narrowest just below the
    bust, which conceals your
    waist and hips.

    The ladies are gorgeous so I am sure they will look great in anything, the 4th dress is my favorite.

  43. Jully

    June 25, 2011 at 10:11 am

    i’d prefer mercy wears Monique Lhuillier or Elie saab, any of the the two would be so good on her.

  44. flicka

    June 25, 2011 at 11:51 pm

    me likey Ellie saab d sheer lace n silk is just’ll look good on Steph

  45. sefi-ann

    June 26, 2011 at 5:54 pm

  46. hauwa dauda

    June 26, 2011 at 9:38 pm

    Haba ladies, Mercy should have stylist abi na image consultant dem de call them by now. As for Stephanie how many weddings she wan do?

  47. Grace

    June 27, 2011 at 12:08 pm

    Princessque ball gown or stnning trumpet/mermaid will suits Steph alot while Elie by Elie Saab will really compliment Mercy’s figure.

  48. princess

    June 27, 2011 at 3:25 pm

    My advice to Mercy Johnson is dat she shouldn’t forget to wear a necklace as she is fund of not wearing one. i wnt her to be different. Stephanie congrats gurl. Jst make sure u are confortable as regards wat u will be wearing on ur leg. As for d gowns wear smefin dat fits u and u wuld look gud in.

  49. chairman Adedibu

  50. Debby Ene

    June 28, 2011 at 11:34 am

    Badgley Mischka A-Line Empire Waist embellished top tiered skirt dress for Mercy while Stephanie should go on Monique Lhuillier mermaid dress with off-shoulder sleeves bcos of her height. Congrat 2 both of u.

    Okay like seriously if Mercy does not get a good stylist after this then i’m sorry for her. Nd yes we have celebrities in Nigeria for those who are still clueless.

    I expect Steph to wear an Elie by Elie saab chantilly lace & pure silk kind of dress, it would do justice to those slim curves she keeps hiding behind her boyfriend inspired outfits.

    As for mercy, our only hope is that her priest or pastor has warned her not to come in with any off shoulder dress, that will help eliminate our first worry. A dress along the line of Monique’s mermaid dress will kill it and i’m glad others think so. Yes Mercy u can return the one u already bought, they surely do 21 days refund.

  53. michelle

    June 29, 2011 at 3:17 pm

    stephanie should go for the Alita Graham A-line textured detail wedding dress cus of her figure. while i think mercy would opt for the Monique Lhuillier mermaid dress with off-shoulder sleeves because of her figure

    I think the ladies are really good looking, their shape and every about them are ok. I suggest the use the fourth and fiveth dresses b/cos it will bust out their shape,and also that day is for them ,so they need to look gorgeous and tantalizing.

  67. oge

    July 27, 2011 at 11:47 am

    Badgley mischka A-line weddin dress is perfect for steph okereke cos of her slim figure while phina mermaid or princesseque ball gown is perfect for mercy johnson cos she is busty ₪ d dresses will help conceal her boobs ₪ she has dis amazing hips she ll look perfect in any of does gowns!

    The “vera wong grecian” gown looks more like a red carpet event gown that a bridal gown plus the model looks very sad “sad bride” *shudders* . Anyway MJ should stay away from the mermaid gowns, the lazaro ballgown” would be best. For stephanie, i think the “eli saab erato” gown would be great.
