‘The Dream Wedding’ – Official Launch of Weddings by MAI



Renowned Nigerian designer, Mai Atafo, who is well-known for his clean-cut suits and red carpet dresses will host an invite-only launch of his wedding line, ‘Weddings By Mai’ on Sunday, July 31st 2011.

This tasteful production will replicate a formal wedding ceremony and will incorporate our favourite wedding traditions like the toast, the first dance and the toss of the wedding bouquet.

Fifteen brides and their bridal party will walk the runway serenaded by our special guest performers – Bez, Waje, Praiz, Chidinma, Yemi Alade and others.

Weddings By Mai will partner with BellaNaija, The Wedding Company, Newton & David,  Cakes by Tosan, The Incubator and make-up maven, Banke Meshida-Lawal.

As a token of appreciation, Atafo will give away a N300, 000 wedding dress to the lucky lady who catches the wedding bouquet.

Tune into the Beat 99.9 FM, Inspiration 92.3 FM, Cool 96.9 FM and Rhythm 93.7 FM, next week for a chance to win an invite to this exclusive wedding soiree.

    Why do you have to call to find out the price? You put an advert yet fail to let the readers know the price. Why? We get to read about it but not we’re not allowed to read the cost…….Usually when they don’t state the price it’s because they know its too expensive. Very annoying.

    *Of course, I know BN will most likely not publish this comment*
