Nigerian weddings can leave the couple stressed out before and after the event. Starting with the introduction to the traditional ,Christian, court and church ceremonies. I keep asking myself sometimes if the whole ceremony is necessary. lol
wedding planning is stressful. With an endless list of things to do, from the décor to the dress to the catering and everything in between, the stress can pile on at lightning-fast speeds. One minute, you’re trying to choose between colors . Before you know it, you’ve fallen down the Pinterest hole, scrolling between 19 slightly different shades of pink petals while stress-eating wedding cake samples.
That said, there are more than a few items on your wedding checklist that the couple’s need to pay less attention to. Instead of driving yourself crazy over the teeniest details, save yourself the headache (and probably a few bucks, too) by knowing what matters and more importantly, what doesn’t.
it’s important that you share responsibility if you cannot afford an event planner. So you don’t over stress and over do stuffs that friends can actually help with. Here are some few tips you can use
CALL FOR HELP!
When planning a typical Nigerian wedding, it’s important that friends, relatives and anyone you can relay on is available to help you, to reduce stress
RUN AWAY SOMETIMES!
if you’re the bride to be or the groom, it’s important to stay away from the noise of family members, it’s important because most people find faults in little things during such events. To avoid this, take your the time-out and leave that environment , so your mind can be intact.
focus on what’s important! if the family is taking care of food and drinks, you shouldn’t bother. Trust their judgement and leave them to do their job. Focus on you and your partner, enjoy the process and stay happy.
