idk if I've ever heard of a budget Nigerian wedding especially since y'all do 2 ceremonies traditionally
the best way is to have a small wedding but good luck with that as a Nigerian lol

Congratulations and best wishes on your future union!

I'm Nigerian and just got married three months ago.  I don't think there's a way to really cut down costs.  What I did, since we had a two day event, was let everyone and their mama came to the trad engagement and was particularly selective with who came to the wedding (still 250, but better then most I know). 

What I find with our weddings since there's mass contribution, it also come with mass opinions, which is very stressful when it comes to planning.

-Ordered wedding dress (200$) and bridesmaid dresses (about 100$) from Simply Bridal. I've actually worn my bridesmaid dress like 3 times already so it was a good deal.


The only thing people consistently spent a lot on were photographers/videographers. If memories are important to you, that's one place you don't want to go cheap.


I read about sample sales online, but I didn't know about renting a dress. I will look in how much that costs. Thanks!

This was my mom's suggestion. I wanted to keep both at a max of 200, but you know Nigerians.

Congrats on becoming a newlywed.

I don't envy you...cultural expectations can be extra. As long as no one's going into debt over it, I say just enjoy yourself and don't worry about the money. My sis married someone from a culture where wedding festivities usually last a week, have several ceremonies, and the whole tribe/clan/village is expected to be invited, accommodated, and fed. They did the complete opposite and were happy about it.

Thank god I don't have to deal with that...I'll be rolling to the courthouse in my pj's to sign the paperwork and then ordering pizza and getting back in bed.
