A Fab Day for 10 Happy Brides-To-Be! View Photos from the Brides Day Out in Abuja & Lagos



GEO_3062Brides Day Out -A Wedding Guru experience- took place on the 23rd of June 2013 in Abuja and on the 21st of July 2013 in Lagos.

The idea transported 10 lucky brides chosen at random from Lagos and Abuja  to several locations as part of their special bride-to-be preparation. They visited wedding vendors for information sessions and demonstrations and had a blast.

The day kicked off at Silverbird Entertainment Centre at 12 Noon where the lucky brides got a chance to meet one another and the host Christine Ogbeh. After photo ops and interviews, the brides and host made their way into the Brides Day Out limo and visited the Brides Day Out Abuja official wedding vendors.

It was a fun filled day filled with champagne courtesy of Taittinger, chatting & pop quizzes which saw some of our lucky brides win super prizes like a 100 free invites, a spa treatment for 2 in a top London spa among other great prizes. They also had taster sessions thanks to Biobak Kitchen, The Hut Catering, Cocktails In and Out, and Cookie Box.

One of the best moments was when one of the brides to be tried on a wedding dress and teared up and said that it had just hit her that she was getting married.
