Finally, He proposed! All the butterflies suddenly find their way into your tummy and everything on your mind is the wedding preparations, a girl just cannot wait! we spend a good time dreaming about our big day that we just can’t wait for it. Weddings can be the most ecstatic time of a person’s life, yet the most stressing, planning a wedding is exciting when you are on the right track. There’s always that one question of whether it should be a low-key wedding or an elaborate one.
But the problem sometimes can be the insane cost of planning a wedding, it takes a lot to have a mad wedding in Nigeria, especially in this present recession where dollar is a bitch. Having a Low-Key Wedding is actually a trend that most to-be couples won’t mind following, it’s a beautiful fool-proof choice that saves you wahala and of course, money!
This list will help you plan a mad Low-Key Wedding because recession or not, Weddings happen every weekend in Nigeria.
- Fix The Date
This is like a map for everything you want to have ready, the date keeps you focused, every other thing comes alongside the date because now, everyone is aware that its official and you know just how long you have to make your plans.
- Keep The Parents Informed
Its funny how our parents always have an endless list of people they want to invite to the wedding, they sound the alarm even before the to-be couple fix a date. For a low-key wedding, you don’t want the whole world rocking their best owambe outfit at your ceremony, let your parents know your plans so they can invite only the important people (everybody can be important to a Nigerian parent) you could have the talk about how they would take care of “their guests” if they exceed whatever number you agree.
- Have a Reasonable Budget
Relax, your temperature is on the rise and that’s okay, you want something grand and memorable but don’t forget the wedding is not actually the marriage so keep your budget reasonably small, this is not the time to be thinking Angel Sanchez Wedding gown or McQueen shoes, just because nobody would find out if they are not designers.
- Stick to Your Budget
There are always lots of options when it comes to what works, you just have to stick to your budget as long as its within your taste and it doesn’t break the bank. Key things like the wedding venue, the food, the drinks, the event planner, the DJ, etc should be fixed on a budget, there are beautiful places to have a wedding reception (you can think about a family members nice compound) that don’t have to be outrageously expensive
- Have A Guest List
We all don’t have over 100 real friends in our lives and this is where it’s a good thing, have a guest list of your real Gees and people you deem worthy, send out your wedding IV to them and get the RSVP, it helps to know who is coming and who isn’t.
- Inform Your Friends
“we want a low-key wedding of like 200 guests max” that’s fair, let your friends know that they are not expected to come think of it as a reunion of old friends, so they don’t invite their long-lost friends to crowd up the place. Friends should be invited but a limited number of invitations per person.
With all these, you can have a good sleep, knowing that your wedding would be Lit, with the best people in attendance. A Low-Key Wedding makes things really easy on your big day, every guest gets the warmest satisfaction and the atmosphere is all lovey-dovey.
