As women, we are constantly questioning ourselves...Why? What happened? What did I do wrong? So, instead of trying to figure it out, we decided to switch things up a bit and ask the men to tell us the answers to our questions. So, naturally we started with, what do Men really think about committed relationships and for that matter, marriage? What makes a man commit or not commit? We interviewed single, married, separated and divorced men, and here are their thoughts:

Trend # 1: Ivory, Blush & Gold Gowns - Ghanaian brides have traditionally leaned towards white wedding gowns, however recent sales indicates this trend is slowly but surely dying down. Brides are reaching out for gowns in bold ivory, champagne and blush tones. Colored gowns provide a fresh and romantic look that compliments most skin tones. It's a refreshing change and it remains to be seen if it is here to stay.
Trend # 2: Ball Gowns....yup, Ball Gowns are a huge trend this season. The bigger the skirt the better. Our brides are asking for big pouffy skirts with dramatic details that accentuate their figures. I guess its safe to say, Cinderella's ball gown never goes out of style?
Trend # 3: Demure and Illusion Necklines have always been a huge hit with our Ghanaian brides. Illusion necklines provide an elegant look that is understated but still sexy and beautiful. Illusion necklines were a huge trend in 2016 and it looks like the trend has no intention of slowing down. Gowns with illusion necklines account for more than half of our sales.
Trend # 4: Long Sleeves!!!! I have to say, given the unforgiving Ghanaian heat, this trend, one most likely ignited by Duchess Kate's one of a kind Alexander McQueen gown has been the most surprising. Yes, the entire world gasped in pure delight when Duchess Kate stepped out in her wedding gown but I'm still scratching my head at this trend...did I mention it is almost always about 80 degrees Fahrenheit/26 degrees Celsius in Accra? Somehow though, against all the odds, our brides are pulling this off and looking fabulous doing it so we tip our hats to those brave souls.
OUR 2017 BRIDAL COLLECTIONS
It’ s no coincidence that we selected stunning Lupita Nyong’o as our birdcage veil model. She is Hollywood’s it girl right now and we declare that the birdcage veil is so in and the ultimate bridal accessory this summer. We love Lupita's effortless elegance, something a birdcage veil is as well...effortlessly elegant
If you are a traditional bride and can’t think of anything but a cathedral veil (think Princess Di) then we urge to you to consider a birdcage veil for the Sunday thanksgiving service or even your traditional engagement ceremony.
This versatile wedding accessory is perfect for the sweltering Ghanaian heat because it is lightweight, will not fly in ten different directions while you are trying to get that perfect shot for your wedding album and gives you a sophisticated and timeless look.
Why be like every storybook bride. We say chart your own path and be different. Like the veil, it comes in several hues, designs and styles. Here are 3 of our favorite designs
# 5 - Victoria Falls, Zambia
The columns of spray from this majestic falls can be seen from miles away into a gorge over one hundred meters below. Along the Zambezi River, it forms the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. It was described by the Kololo tribe living in the area in the 1800’s as ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ – ‘The Smoke that Thunders’. In more modern terms Victoria Falls is known as the greatest curtain of falling water in the world.

# 2 - Accra, Cape-Coast & Ada, Ghana
Akwaaba! (welcome) is an expression you will hear often from the friendly people in Ghana. Ghana, truly one of Africa's hidden gems has enjoyed political stability since 2001. It is the second largest producer of cocoa in the world and one of the world's largest producers gold. While in Ghana, be sure to try the Ghanaian made Golden Tree Chocolate first, and then check out the Volta lake - the largest artificial lake in the world by surface area. Also visit the beaches in Ada, the historic slave castles in Cape Coast and Elimina and the gold mines in the Ashanti Region.

# 1 - Seychelles Islands
If the fact that the Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge honeymooned here doesn't do it for you, the pristine and absolutely fabulous beaches will. The Republic of Seychelles is made up of 115 islands, 41 of which are the worlds oldest mid-oceanic granite islands in the world. You can find the most stunning beaches around the cluster of islands around and on the main island of Mahe. Julien's at Anse Soleil is a must for honeymooners, and so is Praslin, the 2nd largest island which boasts some of Seychelles' most stunning beaches.
