Now, couples have a choice to choose elegantly African-inspired invitations for their celebrations.
We had the pleasure to speak with Mrs. Ify Ojo, President –Bibiinvitations.com to understand this wonderful African inspired stationery/invitation collections. We asked, What inspired you to create this unique and creative brand?
“I noticed that most wedding invitations I received from brides of color were often a sharp contrast to the wedding ceremonies themselves which were full of color and most times rich in tradition. This jump started my entrepreneurial drive, Bibi Invitations- A line of truly authentic wedding invitations I created to fill this void, stated Mrs. Ify Ojo.
She added that the idea and it’s execution was the easiest part for her however she quickly realized that there other aspects of managing a company that were not her strengths so she teamed up with longtime friends Omena Babalola, a certified accountant and Chinelo Agazie whose education in project management and IT was a much-needed asset.
Bibiinvitations has earned much success and acclaim, and have sailed on the wings of it’s success by lunching their website in June.
