Hi there. Welcome to LIVE & WED.
Live & Wed is a wedding and lifestyle blog serving African and multicultural women. You’ll find tips, tricks, checklists, planning advice, and of course plenty of inspiration for your big days. Yes, you read right. I said big days. Because I know most African couples out there will go through at least 3 steps (engagement, and/or traditional wedding, civil wedding and church wedding) before finally tying the knot. So don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. I’m here to help you plan every single step. Trust me, I know how overwhelming things can get. You might ask yourself why I would even care? Good question. Although I got married back in 2018, my passion for weddings and event planning never quite faded away.
Some would say I’m obsessed with wedding planning. They might just be right. While I was planning my wedding, an African wedding with over 200 guests, I STRUGGLED. I struggled to find a location that was big enough, I struggled with my guest list, with my family’s opinions, and the list goes on and on. And sure, there were many resources out there for inspiration in general. But I never quite found anything that would help me with all the particularities and nuances of the African and multicultural wedding scene. So tada, fast-forward 2 years later, I’m starting this blog. So that the next couple doesn’t struggle the way I did. I can’t wait to help you plan your wedding!
