Like all good things, #BAAD2017 has come and gone but hey we have the Internet and it never forgets which means we’ll always have the memories and that’s 👍🏾
The Bride, Adesua Etomi, let her light shine bright in three custom made pieces by top Nigerian designers.
This is our most expensive dress yet because it was made out of pure love for @adesuaetomi She knew what she wanted all we had to do was deliver. BTW this is not some lace fabric, this was specially fully handed beaded in India. Design was sketched out on paper sent to beaders a sample was beaded and after approval it was then beaded to perfection for 2 months. Dress is lined with a soft shade of nude which looked like it had a drop of blush in it and this was the perfect background to make the hand bead work pop. #Dreamwedding #dreamweddingbyMaiAtafo #MaiBride #Realbride #RealMaiAtafoBride #BAAD2017 THE FINALE

ADESUA!!!! It started at the fitting when I made her blue dress. Months later, she sent me a message. Let’s start, this is my vision and this is what I don’t want. Our parents are pastors, no boobs and no low back. It was the last dress and it needed it to be sexy, I didn’t understand how I couldn’t make the back low. I sent her designs and she said NO, NO, NO. I sent her more options months later…again NO, NO, NO. I didnt have anything but I told her I wouldn’t start the dress till she came back to Lagos so last week Tuesday she came in and I wanted to measure how low I could have it at the back. She wasn’t having it. Adesua, please give me something, NADA! We agreed on the fabric,she wanted a red dress. I showed her silver😂 and on Thursday, she came in for the first fitting.I told her I just need to make sure it fit, it’s not finished yet but I want to see it on her. I won’t lie, I didn’t love it but I knew I wasn’t finished with it. I have also learned to just trust God and that night I added each stringe of fringe you see at the bottom. I added different sizes of beading.i changed the tuille on the upper body and hand beaded the upper body again. By the next morning, I just knew I had the dress. That’s the weirdest thing about me, I never really know what I am really making till perhaps the day before. Most of my clients kind of have an idea but they just leave it with me. When she came in on Friday, at the fitting she had to push back tears. I literally Hi fived God. I told Him, this dress will reach the corners of this world. They must see what You are doing in me and through me. She wil walk into the hall and she will be setting bars. My dress will surpass all expectations. I won’t Labour and be short changed. People that didn’t know my name, will know my name. This is what I do best, making the woman SHINE!!!!! @Adesuaetomi, you already know. Thank you for trusting me and choosing me. Banky, will always choose you, ALWAYS❤❤❤ My name is Matopeda and my story is grace. #BAAD2017 #baad2017 #receptiondress #eveningdress #weddingdress #wedding #bride #love #waistsnatched #marriage #blessed #worldwideshipping #whengracemeetsstitches
