Attended my friend Maky's wedding on Saturday and it was AH-MAZING! The whole week in the run up to the big day was so much fun and Saturday was the perfect climax. The last time I had this much fun at a wedding was at my friends Ediri and Molly's back in 2010.

I did a fishtail braid for the first time that day, I'd never tried it before and I thought I did a pretty good job considering it was my first attempt. It works better when your hair is really full and not very sleek though, my hair was flat-ironed and serum'd up to within an inch of its life when I did it, so it didn't have the fat plait look a fishtail braid is supposed to have. I'll try it again after I've washed and blow dried my hair to give it more volume.
Everybody brought their A game that day, as in it was a room full of gorgeous people in seriously beautiful clothes. I love that Nigerians always get dressed up, none of that casual BS. Some people actually dare show up at weddings looking like they're just running down to the off license. Anyone that tries to ruin my wedding photos in 'casual wear' is going to get it from me.
Go hard or go home.
It was an evening wedding so after dinner which ended at about 10ish or so an ice bar was set up in another room while the reception room was being turned into a club with a lit up dance floor, the whole works.
I was pretty stoked to see the ice bar because I've heard about ice bars, ice clubs and ice hotels for quite a bit but I've never seen one in reality.
It was interesting trying to figure out how it was being refrigerated to keep it from melting, the things people come up with are just amazing.
The shots were served in these ice shot glasses.
The music was spectacular, DJ Exclusive outdid himself and we literally danced till like 2.30am, I didn't get home till 3 and the party was still going strong after I left.
I'm proud to announce I think I can now drink properly without wanting to curl up and die. I had several shots and glasses of champagne and I was clear headed all night and woke up "lookin, smellin, feelin like a million bucks" *in the voice of Ludacris*
I think I'm finally an adult.
It was beautifully organized and had a strict guest list that was adhered to. I've always wondered if its possible to have a wedding in Nigeria where people actually RSVP and has a guest list, no stragglers, name cards at a table......
If anyone has managed to pull it off I'd really like to hear how they performed this feat because the only weddings I've seen this being done successfully was this one and my friend Ejay's in 2011, and both were in London.
These past 10 days or so have been LIVE.
Love and light xx
