Let’s start by saying huge congratulations to one of Nollywood’s amazing A-Listers – Uche Jombo - on her marriage to her beau in God’s own loving land, Puerto Rico. Her destination wedding has inspired our editors at BLULOFT to do something a little different from the usual editorial monthly publication in WOW!
As we all know, it’s vacation period in most places, and this of course marks the beginning of the wedding season, or as we would like to call it, the hitching time of the year around the world. So this month, we’re working with our sister company www.TheStyleRebels.com to create “The Wedding Style List,” a collection of wedding necessities and splurges from amazing dresses, fashion goodies, décor, and jewelry to unforgettable locations guaranteed to make WOW! Magazine readers feel ecstatic about that special day. So whether you’re getting hitched  in Nigeria, planning a destination wedding somewhere else around the world or just looking forward to being a stylish guest at a wedding this season, we promise you’re gonna love this love list.
Enjoy, stay stylish and don’t forget to stay connected at www.bluloft.com; www.bluloftblog.com !

The Dress –
We’d like to think when CoCo Chanel said “…Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman,"  she was thinking about the bride-to-be. A wedding could cost a million $dollars but make a dire error with the bride’s dress and you may have ruined the entire event. Still thinking about splurging on that wedding dress? Stop thinking and start shopping!

The Splurge:     Vera Wang “Henrietta” from Bridal S/S 2012
The Affordable:    The Oleg Cassini Collection for David’s Bridal
The Rebellious:    The Alex Perry Couture

The Invitation –
While some would like to go all grandeur with the wedding invitations, an overly creative RSVP card trumps a boring expensive one. If you can keep it chic without going overboard, you’ve done well.

The Splurge:        Lela New York Fabric Couture Invitation
The Affordable:    Martha Stewart Office Collections
The Rebellious:    The Bottle and Slipper Collection from Creative|Minds

The Ring –
“With this ring I thee wed” The most famous repetitive words ever said at a wedding. If your plan is to be married for ever (and we hope so) make sure you’re happy with the band on your fourth finger. It’ll be the only material possession you’ll have to wear everyday long after the wedding is over!
The Splurge:        Tiffany & Co Rings
The Affordable:     The Apex Jewelry

The Location
Of course everyone wants to impress with the location of their wedding and this would probably take up about a third to half of the wedding budget. For those who would like the beach, a magnificent hall or the quirky location, we’ve got you covered.
The Beach:    The wonderful beaches of Negril, Jamaica
The Cliff:    The Laguna Cliffs Marriot Resort & Spa, Orange County California
The Hall Magnifique:    Waldorf Astoria New York – The Empire Room
The Quirky Location:    The London Eye

The Cake
We may never know who started the tradition of having cakes at wedding but we’d like to take a second to salute whoever that is. A wedding may have a crappy DJ or boring MC but when the cake looks and hopefully tastes great, the guests may stay just a little longer just to get a taste of that mouth-watering dessert!
The Floral Cake:     Ana Parzych’s Cakes
The Quirky Cake:    Ron Ben Israel Cakes
And the Cup Cake!  

The Décor
We decided to make this the last since the décor usually creates a lasting impression (this is of course after the bride’s dress and the gorgeous groom). For this décor list, we’ve collected some of the most tasteful works of known decorators to inspire every reader in WOW! whether or not you’re planning a wedding.
