Lol. This man says weddings shouldn't cost more than N50k

Lol at a wedding shouldn't cost more than N50k - how you for use N50k do wedding? sYou definitely should cut your coat according to your size but I doubt anyone's size is N50k. What do you guys think?

The idea is that weddings ought not cost an arm and a leg, and with that, I do agree. Let's not necessarily trivialise it on the literal currency value at the moment. We know some people spend more of that on dog food weekly...

Very funny. As for me, it's not jx about the wedding, it abt life after the wedding I.e Rearing kids n being responsible to the family. I think that's where the real expenses comes in.

I agree, yeah if only the drink seller sells a 10 crates for 4 naira and the wedding gown sewn with white paper, then rent only 6chairs for 30 people without canopy in this rainny season, then the mc screams on his voice while we use our phone to play music, and guess what? Due to tomato's current ridiculous price we will then starve, em em no! We then declare a fast! ...oops I think iv even exceeded 49k, ...wait we ("couple) will treck to the venue cos fuel is still expensive, remember we didn't pay for party space? Yeah that's cos mama Ifeoma dashed it out to us cos shez a good Nigerian! How lucky we are in Nigeria.

That is the problem, caring about ceremony and out-doing each other. In a counrty where about 97% live under $2 a day. Of course N50K is more than enough for most. Having a registry wedding in most countries with your 2 witnesses is the cheapest option. It is the party that costs the most. Everyone should do them and carry go.

Enough said!.

If you have the money, by all means have an extravagant wedding. My problem however is people who live in rented apartment, driving a Tokunbo car with no tangible form of investment borrowing millions just to impress people who don't even care if they exist.

After spending millions on your wedding you go back to living in your rented apartment struggling to pay your bills.

Before you drop N5m on your wedding ask yourselves as a couple;

1. Are we living in our own home? Not rented o!
2. Are we driving brand new cars?
3. Do we have enough saving to cover our daily expenses for at least 1 year should we lose our jobs?
4. Do we have active investments that bring us income or do we rely solely on our salaries?
5. Is this N5m a seed money that can be invested to multiply?

Your future is closer than you think. Plan towards it!

From linda to the commentators. All daft. Linda before God blessed you, your wedding or your sisters would have cost around that. So PLS quit this brand new attitude. Stop acting like you haven't experienced both sides Abeg!
And it's only in Nigeria people blow such stupendous amount on these carnivals they call 'weddings' then start scavenging and begging for money right after.

U can rent a wedding gown for 7-10k and ur man can get a nice suit for 8k.

Why spend money you don't have to feed people that do not like you?

Some even get spiritually attacked for having an elaborate wedding.
Call few family members and friends that are trusted. Get government approval which Nigerians call court marriage drive down to your church for your pastor to pray for you. That is all.
For traditional only members of your family are required.
I don't think N50k can do all the above.

It's gud not to incure expenses above ur means or income all in d name of wedding, cos there is alwayz life after wedding. I tink datz d point his driving out.

I had friends who had superlative wedding in 2009 spent over 35million on the wedding. Today they just upgraded to be renting in lekki but still no possibility of buying their own house yet. Husband is 45 and still clamoring for contracts. That money could have gone into buying their own house or starting a small business instead of paying for shuga band and fancy cakes nobody even ate

Very simple. Buy bend down suit for the guy. Simple a line sati gown for the lady or go to bend down, so many look like lingerie. What else, cook rice at home. Bride mum or in law. Don't hire any hall, talk to the priest about your budget, you use the chapel or hall outside. Makeup do it yaself. Hair go to local salon less than 1,500. Wear no shoe or old pair. It is not impossible just know your guests may come wth budget gifts like lipton tea, st Louis sugar, bag of pure water, salt, delta soap, toothpick etc which you will find very handy.
Some just go to the registry by themselves no guest..nothing new just old choir uniform and old suit. Close family only come home for ofe akwu and rice and loud osadebe jams.
Just trying to manage this 50k....pheww.
it can be done but tufiakwa!!!! What a way to start life. You can plan and wait and save up for low key but 50k is a super squeeze. Unless going through a really tough time and you must marry by force!!@

He has a point. Know a gateman that did his daughters wedding with 10k. The point he is trying to make is to spend what you can afford instead of borrowing what may take you ages to pay back. Some couples can't even afford to eat or furnish their rented apartment after throwing 'big' weddings. The marriage is what is important not the wedding.

I will say don't over do it, do according to your pocket.

Its possible to have a wedding of 50k.1)he doesn't need to leave the church premises,after the solemnization he shares chinchin and gnut or zobo n gala or pancakes to the guest.

2)he can also decide to have a court wedding and take about 20 of his close friends/family to a fast food and buy them snack or food worth 20k.am sure family members would have sponsored the wedding dresses if not with this option he can still afford that.

3)He can make a huge cake and share if after the solemnization and everyone goes home gossiping.

It's not the elaborateness of the wedding that matters but the wisdom to make marriage work/build a home.

50k is more than enough. Manage the venue. At a church service or at at mosque prayer time. Some crates of water and mineral. Parents and friends present. Wedding done.God bless union.
We need to reaccess our priority. 50k is more than enough. People make a show of what is not, just to show off. Wedding should not be stressful. It's the officiating that matters. Las Vegas weddings or Ikoyi registry weddings. How much does it cost? Is it not marriage.
Be wise plenty unmarried women want a Beyonce wedding or Stephanie Okereke Linus wedding. It's not for everybody. That is not the wedding or marriage ceremony but show off party entertainment. The officiating by the government official or Religious officials is the marriage. Done!
You are married. Girls shine your eyes before you go for anything later just to have a child. Take the opportunity and Just Do it! You can entertain later at anytime!

Una cool down. It is very possible. Come to my parish in Aguata. Just manage and cook rice. Wear your Sunday best. Dance to the Lord, celebrate with that 50k if that is what is available. God always multiplies the grateful. Soon yhe couple will become sponsors for other people's wedding. In everything give thanks. Some 50k weddings habe become more fruitful and progressive than some 50million weddings.
Every increase is a seed and a gift
Be grateful.
