9 Gorgeous bridesmaid dresses from Nigerian label Peridot & Ruby

While looking for inspiration for bridesmaids dresses, I came across Peridot & Ruby and it was love at first sight. 

How stunning are these gowns?

In a 2010 interview with, one of the founder's of the line discussed their company origins.

" ‘Something Peridot’ had been in the works since 2007 with real brides including Abisoye Olorunnimbe, Banke Meshida-Lawal, Abisola Odeinde, Bella Disu and Mayowa Fabode patronizing the company, it wasn’t until  Peridot & Ruby founder, Lola Abiodun-Ashafa’s wedding (where she dared to be different and designed her bridesmaids dresses in black) that she decided to birth a sister company to Peridot and Ruby and cater to the wedding bridal party."

Did you know that the wedding industry in the US is valued at 53 billion dollars? Getting married is not cheap!

Nigeria is well on it's way...remember that Forbes article that detailed how much Nigerian couples spend on weddings.  It's one of the fastest growing markets in the country.
Now this was my personal fave. This wedding was in Cape Town earlier this year and I just loved the color on the bridesmaids.
