    Bisola should not associate her brand with Chioma, she has a BAD reputation in Houston, Texas as a planner and people are starting to see how she deals with vendors against her clients. She is not well-liked and while she’s helping plan weddings, shebi, how is her marriage? She did my cousin’s wedding in Dallas and she left a bad taste even before the wedding day. MUCh better planners in the States to do this series.

      It is incredibly unfair and totally unnecessary for you to come on an unrelated post and` say stuff you know nothing about personally. I’ve worked with Chioma for many years and I can tell you first hand that she is very passionate about what she does and goes to bat for her brides and vendors. While YOUR cousin may have been dissatisfied with Chioma’s services, that doesn’t mean all her events are the same. Every client is not going to be satisfied and that’s okay. Judge people yourself and not based on what so so and so say about them. AND what has her marriage got to do with this? Are you in her marriage? How do you know what goes on in it? Even me that work with her once in a while know nothing about her marriage. People can be so vicious.

      This is clearly a post by a hater. I live in Houston and no one here has an issue with Chioma. I have attended several of the weddings and parties she has done for my friends and family members and I have alway enjoyed myself at them.

      It’s quite unfortunate you speak like this about someone who passionately love her job and does all she can to produce a great wedding! And yes every wedding is a production with FINESSE, CLASS PURE EXECUTION. The fact that she doesnt tolerate “crap” from you people now makes her Rude as being described which to me is fine. I will take her strive to better herself and satisfy her clients as rude than deal with all you “good 4 nothing” family members that thrives on opportunity to Steal from relatives. As per her Marriage which “Obviously” you know nothing about I pray God bestows on you in folds of 100 whatever u desired for her in her “past”. FYI she’s Happily married and HAPPY Indeed! Am sure your cousin is happy with your writeup and don’t forget to take this piece to the bank and cash in the Millions. Miserable fellow.

    Nkechi, you couldn’t have said it any better. Chioma is rude and full of herself. It’s her time but you know what people now know better. I was a bridesmaid at one of the weddings she planned, I don’t even want to start with My story, too long. My advise to her…stay humble madam, ask people that have been there before, nothing last forever.

      I agree with you and I am quite shocked at the negative comments on here about her too. I have been to a few of her weddings and I am always in awe at how gorgeous they are. I even turned up with her last year on the dancefloor at my good friend’s wedding. She seemed very sweet and humbled to me.

    I am a former Dure Bride and I must say I do NOT agree with you Nkechi. Chioma was my wedding planner and turned into a sister/friend of the family. She planned my gorgeous day and ensured that my family, bridal party, my husband, and I were taken care of that day. Everyone will not be satisfied with their services, but there is no need to bash Chioma. Chioma literally spends every moment working to take care of her brides and doesn’t enough free time for herself. I know she is a hard working individual and I pray that she receives nothing but the best.
