    1. My dear that is the spirit, the kind of money we spent on our wedding, I wish we dint spend that much. Though this mans own sounds like poverty mentality but it's good to be wise when it comes to wedding planning

    2. Push up its not. Did you read they went home with food packs?
      If you can't comfortably afford it don't do it, no matter how much you spend the world won't talk about it forever, that too would one day become next to nothing.

    Well,he is right though but a yaraba person can never manage in his/her wedding or parties!...
    They would rather use all their savings for parties and go hungry the next day...

    1. I'm a Yoruba girl and I will prefer to do my wedding in our compound, but if my man think otherwise, he's free to do as he wishes but I won't spend up to #10,000 from my pocket

    2. My hubby and I saved for our wedding and bought a land at Ajah. The remaining was used for the wedding, and we didn't compromise.
      For instance, I cancelled renting of buses to bring families down to the venue, reduced the souvenirs distributed, accepted free makeover from my MUA sis in law, and encouraged families to take up responsibilities they had issues with such as the chapman and small chops, souvenirs, bus rental etc

      It was the best decision ever cos we wouldn't have been able to acquire a land in the nearest future cos of the expenses in marriage. Two kids in two years, relocated to a 3 bedroom, paying of post graduate and professional exams fees, and just bought another car.

  7. Next time invite small number of persons. U can invite just fifty people and feed them well without going broke. No need inviting 200 and above which will bring in their extra crowd making 400 people and food won't reach some. Or Its Maggi cube meat u will serve. I did a small wedding and ddn't break my back a n d don't regret a thing. Nobody was left without food. Nigerian mentality is how to come and eat osho free food at parties without contributing nada so the sensible thing to do is throw a very small party with only d most important people or don't do at all.
    See ya!

  13. I had a skate suit; special white skirt suit designed and that was what I wore. Cost just a tenth of the price of wedding gown. People admired the fact that "i was different and classy". I wore it for five more years after my wedding. Finally gave it out to a very dear lady who appreciated it. The money I saved was invested and still brings in dividends.

    1. Depends on the gown. If your budget is 20k for your outfit, you get a gown that isn't a ball gown, use for the day and you'll still be able to use it later. My sister, who's an executive in a bank, got such a gown. When you see her use that same gown with her hat/fascinator, you'll never know it's the same gown she got married in. It wasn't an overly expensive gown either. Most people just go all out to impress people. That's the root of the lavish spending

  14. Had our traditional wedding in my dad in law's sitting room with just enough guests to fill it. Danced from a stereo. Saved the money from hiring canopy and bands. etc. finally, went to the registry and hosted some guest in a posh eatery in town. Had snapped all those "white pictures" after the registry. Marriage was over. Plowed the savings into my business and happy. It's been five sweet years with kids.

  15. By mutual agreement, we rented a car from a friend free of charge even though we could afford one. Saved up the money and more from the wedding planning and relocated to a foreign country for ministry training etc.

  16. Do people still serve packaged rice and soft drink in Nigerian marriage ceremonies?

    I remember those days when people get married inside the church, serve packaged rice with coke and fanta for some while malt for the elders, pastors and pastor's wife. And a slice of cake that always had blackcurrant in it.
    You stay in a long queue, present your wedding gift to the couple and get a plastic bowl, cooler or notebook( in some cases) in return for your present.

    Those days are gone.....

  17. There's nothing wrong in having varieties of food in your wedding ceremony! If you're willing to invite guests, then be willing enough to entertain the guests.

    I had a small wedding with just about 50 people and there were enough varieties of food and drink to go around twice.
    It's better there's leftover than people complaining of not eating.

    If you know you can afford it and it will not affect your pocket, do it.
    Never borrowed money for a marriage ceremony.

    1. I had a big one though. Printed 700 invitation cards and gave 450 to my mum alone and the woman was looking at my husband like"Is this all?.

      There's nothing wrong if you can afford it.

  19. Left to me,I will head to the registry and then have private blessings with our pastor.

    And in the evening a beautiful intimate dinner with 50 of our nearest and dearest. 😍😍

    Honeymoon: Seychelles or Greece? But only if we can at that time.

    I have zero interest in asoebi, wedding hashtags etc etc but always ensure to buy and involve myself when friends wed.

    Far more concerned with the marriage and kids school fees . Want the best for the lil ones. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    1. Exactly! My ex boo's rent was 2.5 per anum. One day i asked him if he has any landed property, he was looking at me like a zombie. He said he got the place kos he wanted me to be comfortable each time i visit. Is it me u tryin to impress or ur friends? I dont get it!
      This guy, anytime money comes, he'll change all his appliances by giving them out to his church (i'm not against giving God) but i wasnt okay with the fact that money shacks him like kai kai n wen he's done spending all, he goes back to begging his friends for cash. I borrowed my self brain n ran.
      I'm a pretty girl that can manage.i cant remember the last time i enterd a boutique to get clothes, but my friends always ask me where i shop. hahahah (okrika saving life since 80 gboriga) but i can spend money on my native attires like mad.
      What im saying in essense is, live ur life according to ur means and stop impressing that gf or bf. When u start to chop sand na ur friends go first laugh u oooooo.....

  23. Some months back, my mum asked how many guests I'd like at my wedding if given a choice. (She never see man, she dey ask about wedding). I told her to give me some minutes to get back to her. I went to my room and listed the people I'd want at the wedding. I came up with about 25. I decided to be generous with the unknown fiancΓ©'s guests and dashed him 35 people. Went back to mumsie and told her I'd like to have just 60 people present-this list included the officiating minister and spouse. My mum was silent for a while and then she produced her list(we're good at making lists, lol). When I saw the number at the end of the list, I started laughing. Only her list and she has 700 plus people? Hubby's mother will bring her own 700 and it will become a carnival? No way! I told her she wasn't serious. Told her she's only getting 15 to 20 cards, if that much and she was offended. Sometimes, people just have a circus wedding day cos of their parents. Even if there's excess money, I really don't fancy a large gathering so I can't see me spending too much. If I want to feed the world, I'll do it as a charity event for those who really can't afford regular and balanced meals, not for people who'll come and not have the decency to chew the bone of the piece of chicken they've been given(can't be letting them waste calcium jor. Lol)
