#BBNWonderland 2016: Baileys Nigeria & BellaNaija Weddings’ Beautiful Bridal Event was Truly a Dream Come True



Bigger, better, more unforgettable bonds made –

The second edition of #BBNWonderland was truly a dream come true for everyone involved – Baileys Nigeria & BellaNaija Weddings, vendors, and of course, the brides.

BBN Wonderland Brides 2016_2

On the 1st of October 2016 at The Civic Centre in Victoria Island, Lagos, over 30 lucky brides-to-be were welcomed to WONDERLAND!

Inspired by the bonds formed with the #BBNWonderland brides in 2015, Wonderland 2016 was as much about friendship as it was about love.

#MyBSquad was about celebrating the women who are pivotal in making dreams come true. For the brides, this means their sister-friends and BFFs who encourage us, and help us on the path to forever.

Over a thousand entries came in from all over the country from accomplished and amazing women, who talked about how their best friends sacrificed money, time and a lot more to help make their wedding dreams come true. Hundreds were sent bottles of the creamy luxe Baileys to share with their friends while stocks lasted.

It was such a hard task to narrow down the list, as all the brides had captivating stories to share.

Like Bride Busola‘s best friend Debby, who shared the spotlight with her on her big day. Debby handed her bouquet to Busola on her wedding day, so her boyfriend of seven years could propose.

“Fast forward to her wedding day reception, which I attended with my fiancée who was also among the groomsmen. When it was time for her to throw the bouquet I was so ready to catch because of those saying that you are next when you catch it. 🙂

Hmmm I jumped so high to catch it and then she turned and stepped down from the stage and handed over the bouquet to me. I collected it from her with so much eagerness and she kept hugging me not allowing me to walk away and then he tapped me and I turned and there he was, on one knee and I couldn’t quite figure out, but then I saw the ring; my heart was filled with so much joy and love and it happened on my friend Debby’s wedding day.

I kept on saying yes and yes over and over again. After that she reminded me that was the reason for the excitement on her bridal shower and I was like OMG!

My friends really are awesome. Debby didn’t stop there, she followed me on Instagram by making sure the video went viral and it was posted on BellaNaijaWeddings and the likes.

I’m forever grateful to my friend Debby for this precious moment. Planning the wedding now she’s still standing stronger than ever with me on getting the best out of my big day. Yes she shared her wedding day with me. To find one real friend in a lifetime is truly a good fortune.

She’s now Mrs. Deborah Ibitoye and I’m a bride-to-be. I’m getting married to the only man I ever dreamed of getting old with, with my best friend by my side. #dreamsdocometrue”

Brides who were invited were given a custom invitation box (there were a total of 3 boxes)! The packaging box with, “Your Fairytale Begins.” The main box and an inner mini box with a mirror W with the acrylic invite inside. There was also a tiara, miniature bottle of Baileys and keepsake box, designed by Parchment by Dami.

The box and invite politely reminded the brides to Drink Responsibly.

This year the ladies were treated to a special slumber party with a yummy buffet accompanied by Baileys on the rocks at Intercontinental Hotel. They played games, and got custom sleepwear and slippers to lounge in courtesy of Baileys.

There is more to the wedding journey than planning, so we invited entrepreneur and philanthropist Betty Irabor of Genevieve Magazine, who has been married for over 30 years, and Kehinde Daniel of Kots Catering, who has also balanced career, a husband and children for over 24 years.

Questions were asked and frank answers were given about about in-laws, going clubbing, hot-headedness and more.

The ladies went to bed fulfilled and excited about the big day to come.

Saturday October 1, which also marked Nigeria’s Independence Day arrived and it was truly a day for celebration. While the brides got their hair and makeup done by the BM|Pro team, the venue was set up by the amazing The Wedding Guru team headed by Christine Ogbeh, who also brought last year’s romantic vision to life. Just like last year, the event was planned and coordinated by Coker Creative.

This year the hall was divided into two distinct spaces, each with a with different ambiance. The white and gold set up for the main event exuded understated elegance, with a white and gold colour scheme.

Chandeliers and candles provided the lighting… Feast your eyes on the spectacular decor!

He started off putting the crowd at ease with some humour. This joke was about how ladies SnapChat themselves in the club.

At this point, DJ Obi was on the decks and had the crowd moving, with Sakal Multimedia keeping the sound seamless. It was time to get the ladies winning fab items that could be used for their weddings!

The fab gifts for the games were special #BNbling nail lacquer sets by Nigerian brand Amali Cosmetics, a Mr & Mrs set from The Gift Source, 20 spa boxes from The Gift Haven, glamorous headpieces, clutch, necklace sets Le Reve Pieces, a box of treats from The Lekki Gift Company and travel-size Baileys bottles.

In the Independence Day spirit, the games included reciting the national pledge and singing the anthem. Imitating artistes from music videos, musical chairs and more were played while brides sipped on Baileys.

Then it was time for the celeb newlyweds to take the stage. Both OAP Toolz and style influencer and blogger Noble Igwe got married in 2016, and had great advice for the brides regarding big families, budgeting and more.

Next up was the ‘Ask the Experts’ session, where leading Nigerian wedding planners Deola of 2706 Events, Mosun of IPC Events and popular Kunle of Klala Photography & Films shared their expertise around picking a wedding planner, choosing a photographer and more, moderated by BellaNaija Weddings editor Ink Eze.

The brides got free consultations from our expert panel, and if they thought we were done for the evening, they had NO IDEA they were in for a very special surprise!

After feedback from the 2015 edition, we added a celebrity couple session with mega star Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde and Captain Matthew Ekeinde, who have been married for over 20 years, with four children, and both highly successful in their careers.

The accomplished actress and star pilot were VERY real when talking about getting married young, balancing career and home, while keeping it sizzling hot. Guests and brides were applauding and hollering for more, but we had to see them go after over 20 minutes of unadulterated advice!

Next up was a speech from beauty entrepreneur, and makeup artist extraordinaire with over a decade of experience, Banke Meshida-Lawal of BM|Pro about hair and beauty for a bride’s big day.

One tip that hit home was that brides shouldn’t blindly follow trends or try something outrageously new on your wedding day.

    One of the most beautiful nights of my life! I had such a great great time and I pray you guys are replenished beyond measure for every expense, every iota of strength expended.
    Thank you BellaNaija and Baileys!


      October 17, 2016 at 7:31 pm

      Yay!!! So happy you had a great time. Keep in touch!

  4. Mz Socially Awkward...

    October 17, 2016 at 2:27 pm

    Ushay!! Ushayyyyyyy!!!!! I see BN stepped the ante all the way up this year.

    Very nice, I like how you kept surprising the brides-to-be and pulling new tricks out of the hat… you and your event partners put on a lovely evening for your readers. 😀

    (… and yasss to this lady’s short ‘fro… I think it’s hot!…… if only I had the cojones to go that low again… 🙁 )

    • Seriously

      October 17, 2016 at 4:03 pm

      It looked like a nice event, with genuine fun. The Pedros look hot, Omotola looked beautiful and hubby not bad. Toolz waist was snatched, she ain’t playing. Yeah, the lady in the short Afro pulled it off and looked hot. Also, the lady in simple cornrows has a pretty face. I’m not teamnatural crazy, I believe in doing you but geez it’s too much weave/wigs in that room. African women need to feel beautiful, sexy in their more natural state. This also applies to the obsession with too much makeup. Actually to women all over the world, let’s accept our natural beauty the way it comes, let’s dictate to men and society what beauty is not the other way around. It’s so hard to see true beauty these days after all the contouring, highlight, fake lashes, eyebrows, etc. women look the same. That’s the reason transgenders think fake extension and makeup translates into being a woman.


      October 17, 2016 at 7:30 pm

      Thank you for the kind words on #BBNWonderland. We love the diversity – from naturalistas to weave/wig lovers to turbanistas and muslimahs too

    • really?

      October 18, 2016 at 2:13 pm

      really @seriously, so after all the praises u had to bring down another group of human beings!? SMDH. What did you gain from doing that?

      lovely event BN…im not so crazy about weddings, but I am crazy about the marriage. next time it will be a good idea to have certified marriage/relationship experts.

      Kudos to BN for keeping the service industry alive, and this runs the gamut from the tent builders to the wedding cake.


      October 17, 2016 at 7:30 pm

      Thank YOU @MzSA!!!! We cannot wait to host you at one of our events.
      We know you would have loved to see Flavour perform. He had us all screaming and dancing for almost an hour.

      October 18, 2016 at 6:37 pm

      Na wa o, how did she bring anybody down. Abeg, take several seats. We are getting too sensitive, nobody wants to hear constructive criticism anymore. If she was putting anybody down, she will not even give any compliment but she did. @Seriously, you are speaking some truth that many don’t want to hear but somebody needs to say it.

  5. Amaka

    October 17, 2016 at 3:19 pm

    Baba God be a Boo Provider so I can attend this event in the next 1-2 years.
    Loved this recap!
    I see no expense was spared and you guys worked with some of the best event vendors in the industry.
    I would love Coker Creative to plan my wedding, the wedding guru to handle decor, Banke Meshida to do my make up, Basket Mouth to be my MC, TCD to take the pictures, Tuke Morgan to serenade my guests during the cocktail hour and to play my favourite love song during our first dance, Flavour to be the Surprise Guest performer when the turn up is about to start and Cakes by Tosan to make the wedding Cake.
    With God I know all things are possible.
    BN & Baileys, thanks for giving these brides-to-be the weekend of their life, YOU ROCK!!!


      October 17, 2016 at 7:28 pm

      Thanks @Amaka
      Your future wedding already evokes #BBNWonderland.

    WOW! Toolz looks like a different person without all those stretching apps she uses on instagram

    • anytha

      October 17, 2016 at 7:23 pm

      But Toolz needs to accept that she is a beautiful well endowed woman. Honestly Toolz, you are very pretty and do embrace your shape. Your hubby loved what he saw beyond the body and he put a finger on it, forever you are joined in matrimony. Now if you feel insecure about your weight and would like to look similar to the photoshopped alter ego of you, then work on it and lose the extra pounds. But you are alright as it is, a very pretty woman. Some woman out there are now embracing their bodies because they see people like you, shaped like them and that they can emulate. Don’t photoshop your appearance to the extreme as it sends a message of low self esteem. You have nothing to be ashamed about, embrace your beauty and keep walking toward your goals.

    • truthie

      October 17, 2016 at 9:25 pm

      @anytha, yeah right, he sure did put a finger on it..
      Nigerians and unsolicited advice.
      How do you write thesis to Toolz about her appearance when she does not know you?
      How do you know how she feels from photos? How do you measure her perception of herself when you’re not her, and she didn’t complain to you?
      Let people be.
      Let them wear makeup or let them choose not to and let it be ok
      Let them paint the pictures of what they want their lives to be on Instagram
      and let it be ok.
      Let them filter their faces and boos’ to perfection and let it be ok
      Let them go through self acceptance or denial at their own pace,
      in their own way, with their own strength and let it be ok.
      Let them live, esp if they are not in your way, of living.

    • Temitope

      October 17, 2016 at 10:12 pm

      @truthie…you say someone is wiriting a thesis and you proceed to do the same!
      A quote I read in a magazine once said a picture speaks a thousand with photoshop it tells a thousand lies. Toolz is double the size she posts on IG, that is fraud! This is a blog where everyone comments on issues that is none of their business! let @anytha be!! You are saying one thing and doing the other.

    Nice. Well done BN. Y’all outdid yourselves.
    Maybe if I got married at 22/23 I would have looked forward to attending.
    Can’t be a 27-year-old bride and attending BN wonderland.

    Next time, you write Bode & Uche Pedro. Not Bode Pedro & Uche Pedro :p

    Congratulations to the happy brides-to-be. God bless your new homes.


      October 18, 2016 at 1:19 pm

      Thank you!

      LOL ok o Noted as per the name.

      By the way, #BBNWonderland has no age limit. A 25 year old bride will enjoy it as much as a 35 year old bride. It’s really about taking a time out from the everyday grind to be pampered, meet new friends and experience new things.

    October 18, 2016 at 10:01 am

    Everything looks so lush…BN, keep raising the ante up. Taking some décor tips down.
    Question for Ink Eze..
    Being a wedding editor, what will your ideal taste be; glamorous or simple?. I watched all your wedding editions here and I keep fantasying , what my day will be like….I wonder?


      October 18, 2016 at 1:18 pm

      Thanks Mahka. We’ll answer for Ink. Just do what authentically connects to you and your beau’s personality. All the best!

    So for the first time i believe winning a prize is not a scam… my usual thinking, you cant win if you are not high and mighty. lol. my thinking was wrong, totally wrong. #BBNWonderland was my honey before my honeymoon… not like am having any. lol… it was amazing…i cldnt get used to the pampering..i almost thought someone secretly paid for it at some point to take off my wedding planning stress. That moment when Basket mouth called out my name for the baileys bar prize, the headache was real even though he murdered my name….this was the only thing left on my wedding to-do list…dreams really do come through. i just believe it wasnt luck, it was God! thank you #baileysnigeria #bellanaijaweddings God used you! God bless you

    Amazing job guys, I’m thoroughly impressed.
    If I may suggest, can you categorize the bride’s in age groups? It’ll be great to place them among their peers to avoid certain feelings, particularly for older brides. I may be wrong but just thought to mention.
    Thanks for the effort, attention to detail, and pure excellence.

    Seeing these pictures just brings back all the memories. The best part of #BBNWonderland is how much these ladies have become a big part of my life. It was just 2 days but the weeks after BBN has been everything. Giving free wedding planning tips and hold each other’s hand as we pass through different stages of the wedding planning. Thank you bellanaija! thank you baileys. #YesNewFriends.

    Omg that last night was magical in so many ways! The highlight of that whole night was Omotola’s husband Captain Matthew Ekeinde. He is sooo hilarious! Such a bundle of character! Who would have known. I also loved rocking with flavour. Thank you so much Bellanaija and Baileys for that special night. Y’all don’t even know what you did for all of us. I felt like a total PRINCESS!!
