Find fun comments below on 'How much did you spend on your wedding?', I bumped into them when I was researching the topic (LOL right?), well I immediately thot that I have to share them.. Bur really, do you have to spend N5million to N10million on a wedding? I don't mind personally but (Heheh) bet what happens after the wedding should be of more signficance. I have seen couples who held fine weddings, only to move into rented apartments, nothing even that nice enough most of the time, also heard of cases where alot was spent on the wedding where the groom doesn't even have a car to drive himself from work everyday + a wife who's not gainfully employed.. (eyes rollin').
Thing is, everybody can't have a million naira wedding o, and that's not cos I say so. Remember there's life after the jollification. As for me tho, I will have a fine, glamorous wedding sha just BECAUSE I CAN!!! Lol.

I am not married. I told my parents that I don't want more than 30 people at my wedding. She did a calculation of her 2 elder sisters' children which totalled 18 children, then her younger sisters' children and her elder brother's children already more than 30 people. Then add my pop's family and my husband's family. Already more than 80. I want to have a simple wedding. I believe more in life after the wedding.
Sometimes I wish I were a man living abroad, so I wont have to do the wedding in naija if my wife is not from naija. Then it will just be me, my wife and few family and friends. Other people will only hear and see pictures. (Lol.. True that)
My boyfriend and I are planning to marry into our own house, so we will use that as an excuse to do a small wedding. I am sure our parents will reason with us when we say we have spent all our money on the house. If they want to foot all the bills then good for them. But nobody should call me after the wedding asking me for money. (Hehehe)
So my advice, outline your priorities in financial terms and ask yourself if the one day or two days big wedding will dent your pocket and prevent you from achieving those important needs. Most importantly, invest in your life after the wedding.
