BellaNaija Weddings



As you say “I do”, brides and their bridesmaids have fun on the wedding day/during the festivities before the wedding.

Here are some fun attire ideas for you.

Enjoy & be inspired!

1 – Swimsuits

For #JourneyToJoseph, the bride and her girls got to lounge in the pool before the destination wedding in the Dominican Republic.Swimsuits_Bride and Bridesmaids_BellaNaija Weddings

2 – T-Shirts

Bride Anu and her ladies killed it with the matching gold heels, denim shorts and black shirts. You can customize your shirts with the number of years you’ve known the bride, your names, relationship status etc.

5 – Denim Shirts

These demin shirts are cute and casual, and it’s less likely to show if there are makeup stains. It’s also a great keepsake.

7 – Bridal Robes

Robes are easy breezy, which makes them a firm favourite – they are easy to put on and take off, and won’t mess up your makeup or hair.

So… how will you get in formation on your wedding day/weekend?

    the hype about these things is getting out of hand,one will wonder why some fathers go the extra mile in embezzeling public funds to satisfy the incessant demands of their kids who behave like its a competition to do better than the rest.any way just saying
