Saturday In House Gists -Nigerian Wedding Tales....

Are you presently attending a wedding in Nigeria?Shine your eyes!..lol






They say that it is only in Nigeria that you will attend a wedding and lose clothing items and have your phone vanish right in front of you....

It is only in Nigerian weddings that the Mic goes missing...

Money sprayed on Bride goes missing....

Food goes missing.................


What else have you noticed at any wedding you have attended?what makes Nigerian weddings stand out?

I attended my cousins wedding years back in Nigeria and the money sprayed went missing....it was in video that the culprit was seen but nobody knew him.....he just walked past everyone with the carton of money and no one saw him.....lol

I have also been to a wedding in Nigeria where one of the guest's shoes went missing................

There are also fun things that happen at weddings....

    1. Someone told me that as a bride, u must sha cry on ur wedding day. Not tears of joy in this instance but something must piss u off to that extent. Personally I know two of my friends that went through this

    2. Eka reject that abeg,if you really have supportive people around you then things will be close to perfect.
      My sis wedding was close to perfect,I and my sisters did the dirty job infact I was not opportune to take a pix cause I was busy covering things up,i single handedly picked her money not a dime went missing.
      She was too happy after the whole show.

      Delete
    3. Eka Joy not necessarily. I made up my mind not to be bothered by whatever happened on my wedding day so long as no one is dying.
      It rained heavily all through the day, my CBM came late to church, someone else on my bridal train had to take her place before she came in, the tailor made a mockery of my bridal train's dresses, yet in all of these I wasn't bothered one bit.
      Our pastor had told myself and husband a day earlier to not focus on that day's distractions because all that matters is that we are joined together, so I was relaxed and unbothered all through.
      You can do it too.

  2. I have personally never lost anything at weddings but my younger sister has. She attended a wedding few years ago in Owerri..While at the venue, she changed to slippers, left her high heeled shoe under the table and went to get something.
    By the time she got back to her seat, her shoes were nowhere to be found. Asked around, whosai!
    That was how she left the venue with slippers that day like play.
    It was really annoying but we just laughed it off at the end of the day.

    1. More than half of the money sprayed during my wedding got missing before our very own eyes, saying that I'm shocked is an understatement, i still feel sad when i remember the things that went wrong in my wedding, wish i can write to you Stella.

  3. At weddings, it's advisable never to leave your phone on the table else it be moved along with the plates and cups.

    1. was at a wedding in VI and my car keys got missing...just moved tables twice and I was sure I had keys with me as I moved to another table. meanwhile my sis had asked me to put the keys in my purse as we were entering the venue. thankfully my car was not stolen cos they had announced for my missing keys and notified the security men at the gate. my cousin had to go all the way home to ikeja to get the spare from home.. another time went to a wedding to pick up 2 big jars of maple syrup my sis sent from america through a friend. the lady kept the jars under her seat at the reception. when I got to her to pick up the stuff was missing. I believed she actually brought them cos she was a good friend to my kid sis and never had a history of stealing anything

  5. My nephew lost his mum's iphone at a wedding in Abuja. He went to the toilet and a stranger told him that he should give him the phone so he can take a picture of him.

    The 8 year old boy obliged, he was excited that an adult wants to take his picture. The agbaya told him to enter the toilet and close the door, he'll take the picture through the keyhole that it's a new cool way of taking pictures. The boy entered, closed the door and the stranger locked him in. It wasn't funny that day we thought he had been kidnapped, only for someone to hear a voice screaming from inside the toilet. We rushed there and found him. Nobody even gave much thought to the lost phone, we were just glad he was OK.

    Dude said he'll never attend any wedding again. I don't blame him.

  7. In our normal yoruba setting
    If you like kill 5cows, it's the meat that will first finish
    It's either the olopo is packing them or one family member
    You will be hearing Eran ti tan ooo πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    In another setting,the groom and the bride will cook different with the hall divided into two. You can be lucky to be where all the souvenirs will get to you or you will just be a spectator. Na your luck πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    And there is always one very strict Auntie. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    I once went to a wedding with hubby , it was a round table of six.A societal wedding oo, on the table were exotic drinks.A woman wearing a lace of 120k or more sef was on our table.Before you know, she has packed the drinks. She collected almost 5plates. Choi, hubby kept recording without her notice.And if you see her makeup ehn. Slay momma.

    Abeg,I tire for parties in my obodo naija

    4. I have that aunty (mom's sister). When she stood watch where the food was during my Trad, if you have 5 heads, take anything without telling her who sent you or who it's for. She will tear that person😁. She and my sis fought that day.

    5. Olori I hate that dividing of the hall(groom side, bride side) thing.

      @ex troll, cocktails are always few. Most couples don't pay for more than 50 or max 100.

      My wedding was planned by an event planner so no family was involved. Everyone ate

    6. @swag your wedding is the best I’ve attended in few years. Over organized.

      Is it the waffles, or ice cream or small chops or Amala and over 10pcs of meat with round about.

  9. The only ish I've observed ,is how water/drinks becomes suddenly scarce, after a while. To think it's usually as a result from hoarding ,by some greedy people.

  10. My younger brother's agbada was stolen in a wedding. He was the best man. They had like 15 groom's men that wore the aso ebi but everybody confirmed his own design was the best. Before they could finish the engagement ceremony, fiam he couldn't see the agbada where he placed it. Everybody was now telling him didn't he notice many people were admiring the agbada that he should have kept it like his eyes.

  11. I remember when we did my grandads burial.
    My brother’s shirts and sister’s gold necklace got missing.
    After sometime, one of my cousins came visiting and behold...she had the necklace on.

    Sometimes, it could someone from the family doing stealing.

  12. I attended a wedding three saturday ago and I saw something I've never seen in my entire life.
    I saw some children selling poly bags in the hall, I had to ask the person that invited me what the poly bags were for, she said I should wait for it.
    Y'all won't believe that half of the invited guests that came for the wedding went home without eating but the polybags were well 'fed' at the end of the wedding with some women taking it home as souvenirs.
    Jeez! I couldn't believe my eyes and the invited guests that didn't eat will be insulting the couples not knowing they provided well for the wedding but the greedy servers didn't let it go round. To think a cow and a goat was killed and two bags of rice prepared.
    Reminiscing it still gets me annoyed.

    3. So because they choose lekki as the venue means they can’t leave at Surulere or what??
      Or Surulere is not meant for human beings??ooh it’s only poor people that lives there??i need to understand please!!
      Your mentality is wack ..you need to change your poverty thinking..yuck!

    4. They must have chosen Lekki for a reason. Proximity to family,church and other reasons. I know someone that lives close to the Airport but did her wedding in oriental. She did it because of her grandma that lives on the island. She can't journey that distance.

  16. I attended a wedding last week and the woman sitting on the same table with us at the reception misplaced 40k plus, just between retying her gele at the entrance and coming inside the hall.
    The hall wasn't even filled up as at that time. I felt for here really, she was just disoriented all through the reception, she claimed the money isn't hers, she was only handling it for someone.
    My friends phone was stolen on her wedding day too.
