    1. That wedding ring, how much is a gram of gold again? 30k per gram. 80k can't buy your rings unless you want to use sterling silver.

    1. Thank you!
      That applies to all wedding rites, including the so-called ‘lists’. Work within your budget, and if you have a partner that doesn’t understand that, consider re-evaluating the relationship.
      Just first have a budget. You should earn well enough to have a reasonable budget, for the scale of wedding you want.

      Which decor can one get for 200k plus?

    2. You can do all same day if the church is registered and have that court registry booklet. The lady's father's compound will be used for the trad/ wedding reception. They do it a lot in the south east. After wedding in the morning, go to the bride's house , do trad and reception.

For my own white wedding after the priest blessed our marriage we came home to celebrate rented canopies, dj and I called someone to cook for us.... Enough drinks for just 20 people and enough food... I don't think I spent up to 150k sef.... And it was fun...

    1. Thank you
      Alot of things on the list are affordable.
      While some are exaggerated.

      The cake, gown, rings etc are all small compared to the small chops, cocktail, DJ and wedding band.

      Why have a Dj if you want to use a band, why have a planner when you are getting other things.
      Cocktail isn't even necessary and what kinda chops are you getting for over a million when the cake is just 100k

      These days 5million should be okay for a guest of 300.

      Why do you even have a 1000 guests
      Have a wedding strictly by invitation,(150people) and give them the best...

    2. I'm not understanding the list either, decoration for a hall that cost over 1.5 M will now be 250k? And they will now spend 82k on rings? It's up and down.
      Abeg long and short is for people to not go beyond what they can comfortably afford. Meanwhile, there is money in this country abeg, I've been to a 10th birthday that I know costs nothing less than 2.5M.

      How can someone who is ready to spend 13m for wedding not afford more than 100k plus for wedding ring?

  16. If u can comfortably afford it, why not????

    It is when u go and borrow or beg to do this kind of wedding that u know that something is wrong with u.

  17. Do you, as long as you don't owe anybody. Debt incurred during marriage ceremony is the worst thing that can happen to any couple. Una two go fight taya after the ceremonies.

    Nah body go tell them after wedding when them no see money to take feed, pag house rent and run other household expenses.

  21. It's this type that lasts 6months

  22. It is the responsibility of the bride's family to host and sponsor a wedding. In a society where millions do not have to eat it is silly to host a wedding with 18 million naira, same applies to 7 million naira. According to the Esan native laws and customs, it my responsibility to marry for my sons. They will pick whoever they choose to marry. If their mum, siblings and I are comfortable with the choice great. My sons will not contribute a dime to their marriage. I will foot the bills . I will not spend senselessly on their marriages. I don't even see myself spending 2 million per son If they not satisfied, they could go spend all they have after leaving the family house

  23. That is why it is said in the book of marriage chapter 1 vs 1,cut your coat according to your size

    ReplyDelete
  24. For a wedding of 13m+, cake budget is just 155k? I don't believe this list.

    You don't know some bakers size you up plus your wedding plans and venue to charge you? Dey there. That price must be from a carpenter.

    Even my low key wedding that we didn't spend more than 1.2 for trad and church, my cake was a little over 50k.

    ReplyDelete
  25. If you can comfortably afford it why not? If you don't have then go for what you can afford, there's something out there for everyone.don't go and borrow money because of wedding o,it doesn't make sense. Me I had a low budget wedding. We made sure we had enough in our savings for life after the wedding. We were even able to buy a new car after the wedding and we didn't owe anybody neither did we ask any family member for help or contributions for the wedding.And we're living happily ever after! No go do pass yourself o.

    1. This reminds me of my wedding in the ancient city.

      Attendees:7

      My wife and I

      Best Man

      Best Lady

      Junior Sister-in-law

      My friend from the UK.

      My cousin

      Mother in law - Absent

      My parents - Absent.

      Venue: Court

      Amount Spent:Less than 15,000 Naira.

      I told my wife: No crowd, please.

      17 years and we are still together. We shall enjoy each other till death separates us at old age.

      My mother-in-law agreed to my wedding arrangement.

      I really admire people who spend a lot of money on their wedding day.

  28. This is why Africans would remain poor. The mentality of their kids inheriting poverty is real. Y’all spend so much money on people that hate you?

    See the gap of inheritance between whites and blacks.
    Stop being stupid, if you have such money for a days event give your kids that money or buy rental property for them.
    Dumb blacks

  29. My daughter's introduction was 7m in Oct 2019. It was lavish with cake cutting, band, lavish decor and looked like an engagement. We actually didn't soend as much for main wedding as it took place just after lockdown 2020.
    When it comes to wedding, if you can afford to spend, enjoy the luxury.

  30. Anon 16.10, whose culture or tradition says the bride family sponsors a wedding. In today's Nigeria?

  31. Weddings are for a day to 3, A marriage is lifetime. Make it simple. Don’t live vicariously through your children. Inviting too many will mean invariably inviting some of your enemies, who May begrudge you for never helping with education of their own children when they asked you.

    A lot of Nigerians rightly or wrongly believe real estate is the main or only thing you can leave your kids, hence the rat race to embezzle money and get goverment lands at all costs. With one person acquiring 10 houses the kids will fight over or your family will fight them for. It is not. Buy shares in solid stock marks. One single share of Warren Buffet’s company is over $180k, most can only buy in fractions. One Amazon share is over $3309. Nobody can fight them over it as it’s in their name. Stop.the race for primitive acquisitions threatening to tear Nigeria apart. Do you not expect your children to work throughout their lives? Why steal so much for them and showing off your loot via parties. Weddings aren’t carnivals but vow taking ceremonies. Treat them as such. Institute schorlaships to remember the day, ask for guests to give t orphanages in lieu of your gifts if you are so rich your town is still riddled with potholes and little kids still hawk $5 oranges or gala instead of being in school. Build treasures that last if you are blessed. Especially if it’s linked with looting the money meant for us all. Get a heart of flesh and set up shelters and food pantry instead of throwing 2 day jamborees. L

  32. For my traditional there was no party at all, not more than 20 people present. The necessary things on the list were provided and the bride price paid, same day we went to the registry with only six people present and then the next day we proceeded to the church with less than ten people present.
    Even though I would have loved to have a big wedding, especially the traditional, hubby and I had to think it over, and luckily both parents respected our decision despite the fact that we are the first children of our families. The finacial gift we received so far was used to acquire a land in both names and then start a foundation.
    Please plan wisely for your future as the ceremony is just for a few hours but you have a life time to plan. If you have the money to spare, please by all means have the elaborate wedding you desire, just be wise. Big wedding or not, you still have wonderful pictures to keep for a long time to come.
