Bibi Invitations…Celebrating Culture & Style! Stand to Win a Free Custom Illustration Portrait for your wedding in the Giveaway Contest



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.

“We absolutely love what we do! Your wedding invitation offers a chance for that first impression, a sneak peek for your guests about what to expect from your wedding in terms of style and colors. We know the pressure to pull of the perfect Pinterest wedding is HUGE – so to make sure your wedding experience is as personal and memorable as possible we work side by side with you to create the wedding of your dreams without the stress. Each order that comes our way is altered to meet your vision for your big day and each invitation is carefully assembled by hand.”

These invitations are customizable and we have invitations for various ethnic groups such as Igbo, Yoruba, Efik/Calabar, Idoma, Niger/delta, Edo and Hausa brides-to-be as a well as invitations for Ghanaian, South African, Cameroonian brides-to-be. Our collections just keeps growing to keep up with demands from brides-to-be from other African countries!

We also provide a social media version of your invitation to make it easy for you to announce your traditional wedding on your Facebook page.”

    See ehn!
    Bibi Invititations is the bomb!
    I am getting married in July and after searching all the fancy invitation vendors in Nigeria, i started to google in frustration for affordable, different and classy invititations. On one page, one of her designs came up and i fell in love with it…
    I got in touch with her, ordered, made my customizations and within 1 week, everything was set. She even gave suggections for the kind of paper to print on as I went for the digital design.
    I was super satisfied with her services and I told her I am her personal marketer.. loool.
    My invitation is all shades of georgeous and people have been ooh-ing and aah-ing over it.

    Thanks Ify for bringing me the edge.
    – Bride from Oyo town.

    Any unique bride needs to go with Bibiinvitations, seriously! after browsing through several selections of dull tacky cards, i browsed through my Pinterest and found Bibi invitations. 1year+ later my traditional wedding invitation still makes me smile and people still buzz to ask where i got it made. Their customer service, attention to detail was on point! They cater to different types of brides-sophisticated, cultural, colorful, animated,customized, budget friendly. Whatever your need they are at your service. They brought our EXACT colors to life (my hubby and I are the couple in blue and green aso-oke:Tosin & Afolabi) *Big grin. Great brand and they are definitey going places! You won’t regret going with them.
