In May, we brought back one of your all-time faves: My Kitchen Party Zambia.
#MKPZambia is a salute to the culturally rich Zambian traditional bridal shower. The show exposes the authentic experiences by 13 unique couples over the course of the season.
For those of you who are dreaming about tying the knot and all the celebrations that come with it, we’ve compiled a special checklist to help you pull off an EPIC kitchen party!
- Moves like Jagger
It is imperative to know which ladies have got the dance moves in your camp; sisters, mothers, aunties, gogos. Round them up and let them take center stage! They are bound to bring your bridal shower to life.
- Hair, make-up, mani and pedi
This one might seem obvious, but just in case your husband-to-be pulls a surprise move and unveils your feet first instead of your face, you have got to make sure those toes look as pretty as a peach!
- African bridal attire
Especially as we all celebrate and remember what makes us proudly African, traditional attire is very important. But it takes a truly skilled hand to make you stand out from the rest! This is the time to secure the best seamstress your money can afford.
- Food, glorious food
There’s no such thing as a great party with no food. And for this one in particular, the more traditional food options you have, the better.
- Cash is king
The bride may have said yes already, but the in-laws certainly won’t let the groom see her pretty face for free! Make sure your bae has his ‘coins’ ready for this big reveal.
- Gifts, gifts, gifts
Last but not least, gifts for the bride of course! Make sure everyone gets the memo (wink wink).
#MKPZambia airs every Wednesday at 21:00 on #OneZED DStv CH 172 and GOtv CH 8. Stay tuned to One ZED for some of the finest entertainment our continent has to offer!
