Following Mercy Aigbe's dress scandal and the allegation and counter-allegations, we list five things wedding vendors need to get right in 2018.
Delayed delivery is one major issue that brides and planners have had to deal with for so long.
In 2018, vendors need to do better. Stylists like the accused Maryam Elisha who promise to deliver fabrics and clothes, photographers who promise to deliver pre-wedding photos, bakers who say they’ll come through with cake samplings etc… need to get it right in 2018 and deliver at the agreed date and time.
Ever wondered why Nigerian weddings never stick to time? Apart from the obvious time wasting and late arrival of guests, lateness of vendors who are meant to put things in place is also a problem.
They need to get it right in 2018.
Apart from delivering on time, delivery also needs to be made as agreed. Accurate quantity and volume of content as agreed with the couple.
Changes are meant to be communicated ASAP. Waiting till pretty close to the deadline before communicating change could literally ruin a bride’s plan for her big day. And no one wants that in 2018.
Of course this is the part where many fail the most. Loads of vendors get it right but even more need to do better.
Messy situations like Rika Oto by Me’s handling of the ongoing red dress scandal can be avoided and should be.
No one wants to be worriedly running after a vendor or making hysterical phone calls because vendors who do not have capability to do stuff take on such projects and end up not doing it well or doing a messy, messy job.
