Nigerian Wedding Checklist

Hurray!!! You just got engaged and we are so happy for you. Planning your wedding has set in and you are obviously on this post to make sure that at the end of the day, all your Ts have been crossed and all your I’s have been dotted. You need a planning checklist to stay organised, spend lesser and also stay sane.

Here in this post, we are going to make a list of all the necessary things that you need to plan a successful wedding so get your jotter and pen and begin to tick your boxes

Inform both Parents: This is the first step to take after your engagement, you have to inform your parents and your loved ones, ask for their expectation and advice then pick a date that will be convenient for everyone.

Inform your Church or Mosque: This is obviously the next step if you are getting married in the church or mosque. Inform your church leaders, finalize on the date with them and register for your marriage counselling.

Set a Budget: Decide with your partner on how much you are willing to spend on your big day. Budgeting helps you plan better and also curbs spending on irrelevant things.

The next step now is to relive yourself of all the wedding fantasies you have nursed while growing up things like 

Decorations: Look and ambience, how you want your venue to look.

Colours: Colours of the day. Read more about your wedding colours here.
