Diary of a Wedding Planner

Monday, 16 August 2010

My name is Omolara Akinosho, a 30'something' year old,single, wedding planner. So you can imagine how my job gets sometimes!

You'll sometimes find me day dreaming and even sometimes frustrated wanting to be the bride whose wedding I'm planning. Friends say I'll probably end up being that bridezilla we all love to hate!! of course I argue otherwise but based on the little I saw when my friend in the industry(Sola)was getting married, I might just end up being one!

I'm not one for a massive party and ideally would prefer an intimate 200 guest wedding. My friends say I can never pull that off especially since my family members alone are 100+ in country! So my question really to brides is, what do you do when you want something small and your parents want it big?

ANYWAY! I'm really excited about this blog as its been long overdue. And I promise (with the help of our creative team) to try to put up posts on a regular basis. Gbemi (Omega Events) and I did try our best on the WeddingVogue blog but with Gbemi taking time off to have the most precious of gifts and increasing time pressures on me, we didn't blog as much as we wanted. Gbemi will be around here from time to time, with those special rants you loved though.

Please drop a note once in a while and I'll be sure to respond. And as you come along on this diary journey of mine, you'll come to know what makes the wow*factor planner tick!

Happy reading...

Hi congratulations on your wedding,personal i think when it comes to weddings you need to manage all sides of the family,you should have your parents tell your inlaws that they would rather somthing very small and intimate so either they get to do a large engagement and keep the wedding very small,or they have a large grooms party afterwards.You however have to remeber to remain very diplomatic in the matter.We dont want what happened with Jlo and her mother in law !!!!!!!
