Nigerian Weddings: How To Have Celebrity Wedding On a Budget

yoruba-wedding

One of the biggest questions that have ever crossed every Nigerian man’s mind is how to have a big Nigerian wedding and not feel incapacitated by funds.

Let’s face the fact; it’s not easy finding a soul mate, your soul mate these days.

So when you finally find that one girl that makes your world go round, it’s a big deal to make your wedding to her one of the biggest wedding ever known to man.

They say the wedding day is usually a specially made day for the bride but we men know this is not totally true. The day of our wedding is also a special day for us (come on, men also dream about this day).

You’ll understand this better if were a man and it took you 40 years to find a girl that truly loves you for who you are and willing to be with you forever.  

Every lady has had the perfect dream of how her wedding day would be like, so it is good for the 
groom to get his game on that day and make that dream come true.

So is it possible to have a big wedding with no money?

Looking at it from afar, it is absolutely impossible but with these hacks, I’m about to share with you now, it is very possible and you don’t need to incur debt from your not so rich grandma or even get a loan from the bank to make this come true.

WEDDING IN NIGERIA - HAVING A CELEBRITY WEDDING ON A LOW BUDGET {STEPS}

1.       SAVE AHEAD

Yes, you heard me right!

Even if it a little you’ll need to save money some money at least if not for anything for the running around and preparation.

I’ve had people most especially women tell me their wedding is coming up in few months and they don’t have anything absolutely a dime for preparation and this sound really absurd to me pardon me if this offends you.

Why?

What happen?

What have you been doing all these while? are the questions I ask when I hear these words from their mouths even though I know the whys and whats I’m asking can’t bring an instant solution.

Having a wedding is just like starting a company.

I mean every new company needs a kick start capital before investors can come in with their monies to save the day.

So yes, I said it.

You need to gather some money first for the running around and planning or else you’ll incur debt and remember our blog title is not talking about incurring debt while having a dream wedding.

No!

I’ll talk more on what the money will be used for in my next point.

2.       SELL ASO EBI

I know what you’re about to say “why should I sell aso ebi?” It’s the ladies that do this.

Yes, I agree with you, it is the ladies that own this part but I must tell you this is a part (every man) you should also embrace especially if you want the big wedding.

Now, listen to me attentively.

The purpose of you selling this aso ebi is to make a double profit if not triple profit and here’s how you can go about it. Remember you said you are having a celebrity wedding so cheap materials should be out of this but expensive material that you can buy at a relatively low price in wholesale.

You know it’s all about the numbers. So let’s say you want to invite 500 guests to the wedding based on the agreement with your fiancé.

How much is the quality cloth material you want to buy on wholesale per persons? Let’s say it’s a royal blue material that goes for 10k per individual, you can sell it at 20k to the invitees coming to your wedding.

If you make 10k per persons imagine how much you’ll get if you sell to 500 invitees {500 * 10,000}.

That’s how much?

I hope you really get the gist?

Now add 5 million to the money you’ve saved up. Can you see that’s a lump sum? (And please don’t forget that it’s your money saved up you’ll be using to buy these clothing materials)

3.       HYPE, HYPE, HYPE

If you live in Nigeria and you don’t know how to hype by now. I must say you are on a long ting (speaking in Dbanj’s tone) until you learn these act.

Obviously, nothing no longer sells in Nigeria without hyping, everything product you see around you is a product of hyping especially products from the entertainment industry (movies, music videos and the rest, name them.)

In case you don’t know what hyping is by now I’ll explain in a jiffy.

You see hyping is a way of making anything you produce or involved in look way bigger and fancier than it looks.

Look around on social media especially on Instagram, Nigerians practice this (HYPE) a lot. Choosing special spots to take pictures, taking pictures with celebrities and making it look as if they know them but they actually don’t.

Also lending or renting material possessions like bags, shoes, clothes and cars from people just to make sure they look like celebrities (This is all part of hyping).

Even though this is bad most times, let’s not forget the advantages because I’ve heard a few testimonies come out of this, testimonies that some people who actually practised this married celebrities, landed big advert/marketing deals and so on.

So if you ask me what we need hyping here for? We need it to make our wedding look big, way bigger than any wedding done so far. This best way to do this is to hire a brand counsellor or brand strategist, it depends on what you call them.

These people know how and what to do to push your wedding day glitz to every Nigerian’s face. And if you can’t afford one obviously because you’re saving every dime you have now for something else, learn it and do it yourself (it will add to your C.V).

4.       FEED ON THE RELATIONSHIPS YOU HAVE OFFLINE

If you’ve been joking with the relationships you have with people, you might want to be serious now because yaaaaay your wedding is coming up in the next few months and you need all the support you can get even the ones from your enemies quote and unquote.

Just in case you don’t understand what I mean by creating relationships and you can’t wrap your head around it, you can read my revealing article on how poor people think and howRalph Bamigboye thinks.

This article will expose you to everything you need to know about establishing relationships and why it is extremely important for everyone to maintain them.

So you might ask me here “why do I need to feed on the relationships I have around me now?”

Yes,

I use the word “feed” purposely because it’s the only way I can perfectly explain this aspect. I want you to see all the times you were creating relationships as the sowing season, now is the harvesting season and we all know what happens in harvesting season, no plant with fruits are left unturned.

Feed of these relationships now by asking for all the helps you can get. This is the only perfect time you can do that!

Do you need a fabulous serene environment for the wedding? Maybe like a Yacht and a friend has one. Ask him for permission to use it. Do want to have your wedding on a private beach and your uncle has one, ask him for permission to use it.

What about exquisite cares?

Talk to your friends that have many of them at their disposals.

Please do not ignore this point due to pride; it does go a long way if you really want everything to turn out well.

5.       FEED ON THE RELATIONSHIPS YOU HAVE ONLINE

Are you a blogger or you just to know people online, now is the time to feed on the relationships you have with them.

Call, email, send DM’s to them and ask for their help.

What do you need their help for?

Remember point 3? This is where your online cliques will come in handy, all you just need is to tell them what you want and they’ll do it, in fact, overdo it.

Bloggers like Jide the Blogger owner of Ogbongeblog.com and OluGlowville owner of Glowville.net had fellow bloggers hype their weddings and proposals (that everyone thought the weddings were bigger than they looked).

So talk to your cliques to hype yours for you to the extent that it will be the talk of the town. After all, the main reasoning why you are doing this is to feel special.

That’s it!
