WELL this guy needs no introduction, hes been doing this for a while now and he is the best in the USA. Read some info I got off his site:
The Bride’s Escort is an outfit born solely to cater for brides at their wedding, Since the inception of weddings bride’s have being left by themselves to get things ready for their own wedding. For instance, things like doing their own make-up, fitting and accessorizing themselves on the wedding day whereby stressing out before the day begins. However, brides need all the pampering they can get at least it’s supposed to be the happiest day in one’s life which happens ONCE. In this light we are committed to creating a whole new meaning to weddings and occasions whereby providing an excellent way for brides to shop and prepare for their wedding, individuals to improve their overall image, the discriminating person to have access to custom made outfits. We have been in existence since 1996 providing explicit services as tailored to the need of the bride from the time she takes her first step towards a new life to the end of the day’s event.

Welcome to my blog. I am new at this so forgive me. The main reason why I created this page is because I have been sucked into the whole wedding industry with all these wedding websites being sent around and all. There are so many Nigerians living in different parts of the world needing help with their weddings in Nigeria and abroad or need genuine unbiased information. This blog is to provide information and share ideas. I hope I would be able to achieve my aim while educating myself at the same time. My very first post is the world of wedding planning, who are the wedding planners, can they do the work, how do we reach them and how do we get referals about them :)
Based on the research I did here are the ones I have come up with:

1. Funke Bucknor - Zapphaire Events - http://www.zapphaire.com
2. Omolara Akinosho - Just Weddings -http://www.bisidada.com/justweddings/home2.html
3. Gbemisola Adenekan - Omega Events - www.myomegaevents.com
4. Ibidun Ajayi - Elizabeth R - still searching for info
5. Jibola Ponnle - Stencil Events - www.stencilevents.com
6. Yewande Zaccheues - Eventful
7. Duupe Adeniran- Weddings Impeccable - www.weddingplannerworld.com
8. Gina Ojomo - Any Events Plus - www.anyeventsplus.com
