Designer Mai Atafo & Wedding Planner Funke Bucknor-Obruthe Join the Dream Team of “My Big Nigerian Wedding” Contest!


Dream Team

Every bride dreams of her wedding gown long before her wedding day, sometimes even before she meets the man of her dreams. To bring her fantasies to reality, a wedding dress designer with keen eye for detail also becomes part of the dream.

Add this to a wedding planner extraordinaire who has years of experience in the industry with a trail of successfully planned weddings to her credit and you’re on your way to an almost perfect wedding for the lucky winners of My Big Nigerian Wedding Contest.

We know you have been waiting to know the designer who will design that gorgeous gown for the bride in this competition and the wedding planner who will coordinate the activities of the day. WED Magazine, organizers of ‘My Big Nigerian Wedding’ will keep you waiting no further. Today, we are proud to unveil Mai Atafo as the official wedding gown designer and Funke Bucknor-Obruthe as the official wedding planner for the dream wedding!

These two join other stellar members of the ‘Dream Team’ – caterer Tosan Jemide, makeup artiste Banke Meshida-Lawal and photographer Kelechi Amadi-Obi.

Mai with his clothing line Mai Atafo Inspired (MAI) has developed a reputation for gorgeous and perfectly fitting dresses that translates into the sophisticated and elegant look every bride desires. After successfully running Mai Atafo Inspired (MAI), Weddings by MAI was created to cater for all clothing needs for weddings. In such a short time, the brand Weddings by MAI has created niche and is now the go-to shop for the Bride, Groom, Bridesmaids and Groomsmen.
