It began like a dream, a fairy tale, but today, WED Expo’s unique wedding contest – My Big Nigerian Wedding has made the dream of one lucky couple come true just like they promised!
On Thursday 17th and Friday 18th July, Yemisi and Yomi, the lucky winners of Season 1 of My Big Nigerian Wedding exchanged their vows in style at their traditional and white wedding ceremonies. They were nothing short of fun, glam, excitement, colour and class all the way.
With the input of only the best wedding vendors who made up the Dream Team for this contest, their wedding was definitely the wedding of the year, one we would be talking about for a long time to come.
Yemisi and Yomi entered for this contest along with over 700 couples and after a rigorous round of voting and a grand finale, they emerged winners of the competition carting away a N15Million wedding and a honeymoon at the world’s most luxurious hotel, Burj Al Arab in Dubai. With the buzz this wedding has created, there is no doubt that even more couples should be gearing up to enter for Season 2. And this time around, two lucky couples would win this – one in Lagos and one in Abuja!
Entries for the competition would be at WED Expo this October from October 10th to 12th at Tafa Balewa Square, Lagos Island while Abuja entries would be at WED Expo Abuja from October 17th to 19th at M&M Event Center, Garki, Abuja. So if you plan to get married by 2015 and want to have a luxury wedding like Yemisi and Yomi did, and if you need the best vendors at the best rates for your wedding in 2014/2015, then you need to be at WED Expo this October.
