You all know how wedding crazy we Nigerians are. From those of us who are addicted to wedding websites, to those who had their weddings planned down to their wedding song since they were 10 years old. Recently, Linda Ikeji brought a dilemma her friend had on her blog. Her friend was been asked to contribute a mandatory N50,000 to a friend's wedding and she asked if she was obligated to. Of course the general consensus was a resounding NO, amidst people reigning curses of the bride to be for making such a request.
My opinion was that they should cut their coat according to their cloth. I've often wondered how the average Nigerian can afford to pay for the kind of lavish weddings we tend to have. Why go into debt for a one day event. I would like a small, intimate and very beautifully done wedding. I don't want the whole world and their maama at my wedding. Anyhoo, what do you guys think of the extravagant weddings Nigerians are famous for and what kind of wedding would you like to have?
