Kunbi Oyelese of April by Kunbi Bridal Shower_August 2016_BS216Designer Kunbi Oyelese is getting married to her love Lanre Tomori this weekend in Lagos. The designer had her bridal shower and bachelorette party back-to-back on Saturday night in Lekki.

Her besties including maids of honour Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegi, sister Esther Oyelese, Toke Makinwa, Mo’cheddah, Sharon Ademefun, Andrea Giaccaglia, Sasha P, Bolanle Olukanni, Nowe Alexis Isbor and more put together the fun night-out, we featured the first look here!

It started with a New York Fashion Week themed bridal shower complete with the bride’s designs on mannequins, and of course a red carpet and catwalk.

The ‘turnt’ part of the night was at Sip in Victoria Island, where the ladies put on tutus and tiaras to comfortably dance the night away.

BellaNaija Weddings will keep you updated on the wedding via the website and social media! Look out for the coverage – in the meantime, here are the fab photos from Saturday’s festivities.

    Aaawww it looks like they had fun, plus we know that she has friends in and out of the “industry”.
    PS: Nigerian ladies pls allow the celebrant look like the celebrant. Some of you would go to weddings and parties with full on professional bridal/studio make up, carnival clothes and front page mag hair. Trying to upstage the celebrant is just rude, is it your party????

      i am sometimes taken aback when i see some female guests at weddings looking like the bride esp in this era where you have the bride change outfits at the reception. If you are a bride and you intend to have a change of clothes after the chruch wedding, make sure it is super fine cos these girls aren’t loyal. if you dont have the money continue with your wedding dress o.
      and if you were once a bride and you feel like wearing that second outfit you wore at your wedding reception awhile back to another wedding…ask yourself if the bride can afford a better dress so that you dont end up staeling the shine and making her look less glamourous when you step into her wedding reception.

    Mo’cheddah trying to steal the show with her thigh high dashiki boots like its her party. i love you but some ladies should really learn to let the celebrant enjoy all the attention on her day.

      I don’t get it o. I doubt anyone is sitting in their house and concocting a plan to steal attention from the bride. Only insecure people notice inconsequential things like that

    • i said so

      August 24, 2016 at 1:00 pm

      @ Corolla you don’t have to “sit in your house” to concoct any plan to steal any attention. The mere act of dressing extravagantly for a party you were invited to, coupled with your attention seeking poses during photo sessions could instantly tell you out. Read and observe before making comments.

      Confident women dont care about other peoples “attention seeking poses” #thatisall

      And what exactly is wrong with her stealing the show? The show wasn’t even in any danger of being stolen because the bride held her own. You want people to wear something they don’t like just to make you feel comfortable? Next thing you’ll tell all the pretty ladies to cover their faces so that they don’t steal someone’s show. Appreciate each person for what they’re worth and just move on (.org).

    Love the theme,seems like they had so much fun.Mo be like’turn down for what’. Gbemi looks uncomfortable in that dress.
    Is it me or does kunbi look like Linda Ikeji?or they just seem to matchy matchy a lot.

    Toke Makinwa needs to chill izit ur party? always trying to outdo the celebrant dats y u wil remain single and keep trying to slay in parties only!!! I so much love this Gbemi Lady so simple and honesty runs in her smiles. Aunty Gbemi i see u getting married by December or latest Early next year your wedding will be so fabulous one can tell u are a good and decent girl with a gud heart from a distance.

      honestly wetin this Toke girl do people? abi she take monkey piss baff?? she is damned if she attends a party and damned if she doesnt. just let the girl be this once cos from what i can see she acted just the way an avearge girl would at a bestie’s parry.
      make una leave am. e don do.

    • Corolla

      August 24, 2016 at 12:45 pm

      What did Toke do ni tori oloun? The sad part is you actually think you are making sense. Your analogy of her being single and slaying is hella wack and simple minded! A very juvenile and dense comment. I just wish God will dash some people sense. Sigh!

    • Bea

      August 24, 2016 at 1:31 pm

      Honestly me sef I dey wonder o. Shey na only Toke dey for the pictures? And I believe the theme said New York Fashion Week hence the overtly fashionable outfits from her and the other guests. Some people need to borrow sense, honestly. Smh.
