BellaNaija Weddings Panel on The Future of Weddings in Africa at Atinuda was Amazing! Here’s All You Missed



BellaNaija Weddings Panel at Atinuda Experience 3 was such an amazing one.

The wedding industry is growing and evolving in ways that promote the African continent. At BellaNaija Weddings, we constantly love to discover the next trend in the continent.

At Atinuda Experience, we hosted a panel with 6 young bright minds in the industry to discuss the current trends and what the future is looking like.

Panelist like Bisola Borha of TrendyBE Events, Joyce Jacob of Joyce Jacob Beauty, Nnanna Adim of Cinematics Films , Nwanchukwu Claud of Events by Claud, Shadiat Kosoko of Shadiat Alasoke, Yemi Shoyemi and moderated by Mercy Akamo of BellaNaija Weddings all contributed to the conversation.

A major part that stood out in the conversation was that the millennial couple is particular about infusing their personality into their wedding. This can be seen in the bride’s soft makeup look, the rise of themed weddings, the guest experience, the bridal dress timeless look and the overall need to have a good time at their wedding.

The millennial couple has changed the weddings space a lot. Wondering what generation z couple will be like? Look out for our 6 part series on The Future of Weddings in Africa. You will love it!

    You mean, the future of weddings for rich people in Africa. We are a pretentious lot. Most people can’t afford the type of wedding being discussed by this panel. The people attending will leave with, I need to start charging much much more for my work because that’s what others are doing or didn’t you see so and so who charges millions for photographs? Bella naija please help me by not posting this comment please.

      My thoughts exactly! It was just an event for ‘vendors’ to look nice and snap picture for the gram! Air kisses and showing off! We know where the regular people go to plan their weddings
