On a Budget? Here’s How To Have A Perfect Small Wedding
Small weddings, with just a few friends and family members in attendance, are gradually becoming a trend. Aside from being economical, having a small wedding in Nigeria is also less stressful since there are fewer people to deal with.
If you are considering having a small wedding in Nigeria, here’s how to make it work:
Limit the number of guests your parents can bring
The bulk of the wedding guests at a typical Nigerian wedding are invited by the parents of the couple, so if you want to have a small wedding, that’s where you should start.
Pick a small venue
Since it’s an intimate ceremony, select a venue that suits the size of the family and invited guests. Don’t be tempted to use a 300-capacity hall for a 50-person wedding. The extra space will encourage the addition of extra guests.
Make invites exclusive
If all your Whatsapp contacts don’t get the invite to your wedding in a broadcast message, then you won’t have to worry about them showing up unannounced. Let your invites be limited and only handed to the people you want at your wedding.
Choose a work day
It’s unconventional, but getting married on a work day is guaranteed to save you a lot of money. Not only are venues less expensive but less people will also RSVP because they have to go to work. The people who truly want to be there for you will show up.
