Its Raining Proposals!, 2017 Nigerian Wedding Trends & More | Last Week’s Wedding News #12

We took a break last week but we’re back with the first hot wedding news post of 2018. So expect a double packed post today. It’s only fair that we start by taking a look back at last year. 2017 was extremely busy and full of amazing wedding news, trends and more.

We didn’t just spot 2017 Nigerian wedding trends on LoveWeddingsNG; we also explored trends with wedding vlogger, Wura Manola of Get Wedding Ready. The vlog featured our founder, Seyi – watch it here, if you missed it.

Saturdays are for weddings but the 30th of December 2017 (the last Saturday of 2017) was the busiest of them all. Most wedding guests we know attended at least two weddings on that day. Everyone was agile and the bouquet toss was a battlefield, our sources tell us. #2018Goals. 

Just like we expected, the last week of December 2017 into the first week of January 2018 was raining engagements. The last month of the year is usually a popular time for couples to get engaged over Christmas and the New Year celebrations. A number of ladies said ‘Yes’ to the men of their dreams including heiress and model, Paris Hilton who got engaged to Chris Zylka. She shared the news on Instagram.

Nollywood actress, Ruth Kadiri also got engaged to her ‘redcap chief‘. Just like Paris, she shared the news on Instagram. Congratulations Ruth. We can’t wait to meet all the other brides saying I Do in 2018. 

Still on Nollywood, actor Ken Eris had his traditional wedding on the 28th of December, 2017.

One of our favourite wedding illustrators, Peniel Enchil is got married last week. Their wedding hashtag #IssaChillTeng is all shades of amazing. We told you 2018 will take things to the next level; this is just the beginning. The illustrator shared these posts on Instagram.

Traditionally hitched!!!❤
