HOT or NOT- Celebrities and their wedding dresses

Welcome to another exciting blog and today promises to be different, there would be no more advice or tutoring on how to have a perfect wedding. I would be giving constructive criticisms on our celebrities and their choice of wedding gowns.

Our first celebrity wedding is a well renowned actress formerly Stephanie Okereke, now mrs Stephanie Linus Idahosa. Stephanie selected her dream dress “Euterpe” from the 2012 Elie by Elie Saab collection, the Lebanese Couturier’s line for Pronovias. She completed her bridal look with a cathedral length lace veil, sparkly Mui Miu shoes, a dainty tiara and a bouquet of cascading orchids.

Describing Stephanie’s choice of dresses in one word is “perfect”. The whole ensemble just reminds me of princess Diana, Regal and Royal. The verdict is HOT!!!

The second celebrity wedding is our popular crooner Tuface to his long time heartthrob Annie Macauley. Annie’s dress is the strapless A-line silhouette wedding dress with a cathedral length train was so stunning! Annie paired her dress with an embellished sash (by the same brand which made the dress). She completed her bridal look with a lace-edged veil and her bouquet of red roses.

For the celebrity wedding of the year, this dress did no justice at all. I understand wanting to patronize our own designer and also encourage them but for a wedding of such pomp and fair, this dress looks like it was picked off the rack. It did nothing to flatter the bride. No disrespect to the designer. The verdict is NOT!!!

Unto the next celebrity wedding whose bride was Grecian and Graceful is Naeto C and Nicole Chukwueke. The bride Nicole looked showstoppingly stunning in her wedding dress by UK-Based Nigerian bridal guru Yemi Osunkoya’s Kosibah accessorized with a diamond headpiece and earrings, her reception dress was crafted by obsidian .

These dresses flatters the bride to a tee, showing off her curves and also giving her the Grecian look that she intended to achieve. Grecian and Graceful. The verdict is HOT!!!

The last but not the least celebrity wedding is Mercy Johnson to Prince Odianosen Okojie. Mercy’s dress had a sweetheart neckline, a-line silhouette with a dramatic cathedral length train, she completed her look with a lace bolero, glittering necklace and cathedral length veil.

This dress is exquisite but would have been better on a smaller bride, not a bride that has all the endowments that Mercy Johnson has. A mermaid gown would have done justice to accentuating her shape and also giving her a timeless look. The verdict is NOT!!!

These are a few celebrity brides and I would also appreciate your feedback on celebrity brides and if you think their wedding dress was HOT or NOT.
