How did you choose your wedding day accessories?
I have always wanted a wedding gown that would cover my neckline. It was this idea that informed the decision on what type of accessories to use. I bought the earrings from a friend whose sister imports jewelry. I bought the hairpieces from a popular market here in Lagos, Nigeria. I also got my silver wrist bangle from the same place.
When did you start looking for your accessories?
I started looking for the accessories as far back as February, 2015. There were some I bought and kept.
How did you choose your bridesmaids’ accessories?
I wanted the ladies to look alike so I got the gowns for them and also went to a jeweler to make the same earpiece/neck piece for each one of them. Another determinant was the colors of the day - cream and fuchsia pink.
What is your top tip or tips for other brides about choosing their wedding day accessories?
My advice is that each bride must first know what style of gown she will like to wear - turtle neck, off the shoulder, tube gown etc. This goes a long way in choosing accessories. Also, know the hairstyle you will like to wear on that day.
