Sri Lankan couple Nisansala and Nalin break world record with 126 bridesmaids train

Southern brides in the U.S. are usually thought to take the cake for having the most bridesmaids included in their pearl-wearing, sorority-sister-filled, monogrammed-to-the-nines wedding ceremonies.

But one bride in Sri Lanka, Nisansala, has officially dominated the bridesmaids department, breaking the Guinness World Record with her husband, Nalin, for having the most bridesmaids in their Nov. 8 wedding ceremony in Negombo.

The whopping 126 bridesmaids, adorned in long purple dresses with white flowers in their perfectly pulled-back hair, beats the previous record from a wedding in Bangkok, Thailand, that had a mere 96 bridesmaids.

The over-the-top number of bridesmaids was the brainchild of the bride's sister, famous Sri Lankan bridal gown designer, Champi Siriwardana, who helped plan the wedding and had her eyes set on the Guinness World Records prize.

The lavender ladies had good company during the nuptials, though. The groom also had a strong representation with 25 best men and 20 page boys.

And with a wedding so lavish, it only seems appropriate that the aisle be riddled with flower petals for the bride to make her grand entrance. In order to so, Nisanala had 23 flower girls.

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.

Violence Against Men, Mnombo Madyibi and The VAPP Bill

Quite some fuss has been on about this man in picture MnomboMadyibi who was allegedly hit with a bottle of wine and also suffered attempted suffocation using a red and white teddy bear. But as expected it did not get as much attention like if the switch was fixed (the experience being that of the woman).
We must know that if men keep being treated like non humans, even the violence against women we usually fight for, will only increase astronomically, since after all a woman must live and find her fulfilled being married to a man or at least living and being in relationships with them.
