BN Exclusive: All You Need to Know about Annie Idibia’s Wedding Dress! It’s by “Love, Tims” Bridal Line of “I Do Weddings”



2faceAnnieDubaiWedding BellaNaijaYes!
It has happened.
After all the months of anticipation, the celebrity wedding of 2013 – Annie Macaulay and Innocent 2Face Tubaba Idibia‘s wedding has taken place (Well, the ceremony is done and now, the couple and their guests are on their way to the reception on a private island in Dubai).

We have gotten our first glimpse of the celebrity bride Annie Idibia in her wedding dress. Annie’s dress WOWed everyone! The strapless A-line silhouette wedding dress with a cathedral length train was so stunning! Annie paired her dress with an embellished sash (by the same brand which made the dress). She completed her bridal look with a lace-edged veil and her bouquet of red roses.

Many had speculated about the brand Annie would choose for her wedding day but NO ONE knew.

BellaNaija can exclusively reveal the designer that Annie chose for her special day.
Annie’s dress is by “Love, Tims“.
Love, Tims is a brand new bridal line by “I Do Weddings“, a weddings solution company owned by Timi Ejiwunmi.

The bridal line is called Love, Tims because each dress is a well thought out labour of love to each bride. It’s like a letter only in dress form and its signed with Love, Tims (Timi’s nickname). Timi says, “Annie was such a sweet bride genuinely in love and full of joy which made it a pleasure working with her. So much so I have named the dress she wore after her. She looked beautiful. The highlight for me was when she cried at her first fitting, innately I felt a sense of fulfillment and reward.”

Your first look at “Annie” by Love, Tims – the Bridal Line by I Do Weddings –

    Pretty…not the right pick for a beach wedding tho

    • ruby

      March 23, 2013 at 5:37 pm

      @yolanda…….so tell us, what should “the right pick for a beach wedding” be? Gosh!

    • oyefunke Adewoye

      March 23, 2013 at 10:47 pm

      Right pick for a beach wedding should be a short wedding dress. If u want to copy oyinbo man’s style of beach wedding copy it WELL.
      Anyway I love the dress and the embellished belt is so lovely.

    • garri

      March 24, 2013 at 3:12 am

      Short wedding dress for a beach wedding, who made that rule?
      Lol, all these wanna be stylist. Smh. Even “say yes to the dress”, “four weddings” etc did not make such rules. Na ur papa make the rule? lool

    • Nash

      March 29, 2013 at 3:06 pm

      A beach wedding dress does not have to be short but it should not have a train. Beach weddings are supposed to be very informal so the wedding dress should be casual yet elegant remember its always windy on the beach. It’s better to pick a dress that would work with the wind.
      Whatever the case maybe, its still the brides choice. Being a fashionista is not how much you spend, it’s actually knowing what, how and when- what fits, how to put the outfit together and when to wear it”

    • Beatrizun

      March 23, 2013 at 11:44 pm

      Ms. Yolanda, there is absolutely no law that states that a beach wedding dress must be short. There are countless beach wedding dresses that are long.

      Oomg. As beautiful as ur name yolanda is, u can’t identify wat beauty is huh, pple like u will always see bad in good stuff, please she looks great, stop hating cuz she cuz she is tuface babe u xpect. A gagacious dress, annie has always bn herself and will always be no matter wat anyone expect frm her jare

    • Nash

      March 29, 2013 at 2:49 pm

      I know we are all entitled to our opinions but when it comes to beautiful thing like a wedding, it’s polite to keep what you think if its negative and just be happy for the couple. Then again it’s not right to go over board with the praises when deep down you actually expected better. It does not make you a bad person not to love the wedding dress or decoration as the case maybe, remember different strokes for different folks. Just love the union and move on and please please be honest to yourself and don’t patronize the couple by saying what you don’t mean.

  27. anti-hate

    March 23, 2013 at 7:39 pm

    The wedding dress fits Annie perfectly and she looks comfortable in it.
    Some people were trained never to appreciate the good things of life no matter how little it is. While some it has been a tradition passed on from generation to generation. May God remove the spirit of hatred and non appreciation. Amin!
    If you never live nice comment , just try it today and feel a burden out of ur life.
    But life is all about choice. So ride on!

    Happy Happily eva afta life together!

    Dress if fine. There are people saying its not for a Beach wedding but Annie only did her vows on the beach and walked on carpet her reception is not on the beach and I bet she is changing into something suitable. You are all jealous busy bodies masquerading as fashion enthusiasts

  33. Emerald

    March 23, 2013 at 9:32 pm

    Humans are insatiable!!! Whichever way her dress look like some people will still find fault. And last that I checked its her wedding and she only can choose what she wants to wear, so pls give it a rest you don’t have to like her dress it is not your wedding.

    Isn’t it funny how people like to judge and critic other people’s choices,we forget this is annie’s choice,she can decide to wear whatever she likes,she isn’t conforming to ur standard but hers..We thank God for the weddings posted on BN regularly cos some of u would still wear gloves and wear umbrellas in the name of wedding dresses meanwhile you are insulting someelse’s choice.

    1st of all happy married life..u looked adorable in that wedding gown, however, I do not agree that’s the right wedding gown for a beach wedding..from the little I know beach wedding gowns are less sophisticated like the one Annie had…No. 1 reason is being comfortable.. 2. You can not wear that kinda wedding gown without a heel and I am sure she did which I think is a WRONG PICK. This is coming from a guy so don’t think I am hating.

    March 25, 2013 at 4:09 pm

    you guys be cursing like this is Linda Ikeji’s blog! Haba! Nways i do agree that it is quite inappropriate for a beach wedding.. It dsnt have to be short, but it shld be light, maybe a satin dress or sumtin… usually a spag top or tube top dress, very simple and sexy, to allow the wind have ripples all over it…. This dress is GORGEOUS ooo, but if it was a bare feet reception, it was not quite appropriate! HML to u guys tho, God bless ur union!
