After a disappointing internet search for a wedding invitation that was a reflection of our highly spirited and vivacious African wedding ceremonies, Ify Ojo, a Canada based multimedia designer decided to act on an idea by teaming up with her long time friend, Omena Babalola and the entrepreneurial venture, Bibi invitations was created.
Bibi Invitations was launched in July 2012 as an online store for customizable African jollification announcements specializing mainly on African themed wedding invitations and stationery. They offer brides-to-be the opportunity to choose an invitation card from their various collections and work closely with a small group of dedicated and talented designers to customize it their taste and colors.
