hi, i am into event planning and i would love to help you as much as i can.although i don't live in enugu. that being said, if your budget cannot exceed 300,000 then reduce the number of your guests.

you need to start with a plan. kind of like a projection plan make a list of things that you cannot do without. by the way, does your budget include the traditional items you are to bring for the bride price?

well you know am in the west , while she is in abuja, most of my friend might be reluctant of the trip likewise hers, so i think it's just a relative rendezvous and some village champs.....so i felt 200 people should be a nice guess...or what do u think?
Re: I Need Help Planning My Wedding by trekkie: 1:54pm On Dec 27, 2012
What i am saying is that even if the guests are only relatives and village champs, grin your budget may not be able to fed 200 guests as well as paying for the other stuff. that's why i asked if the bride price items are included in your budget. so we'll know how to further plan for the money. if the bride price items are not included then, that's one less demand on the money. sorry if the question seemed personal, it was just to help me get a clearer picture of how the money is to be spent. another question to ask yourself is 'will you get your wedding attire from this money or is this money just for feeding the guests? if the money is just for feeding your guests then you don't have any problem but if not, you'll have to do some juggling and prioritizing. smiley

Do not forget Photography, Video coverage, Hall rentals/chairs, Decoration. I'll be willing to help you sort out your photography aspect once you are done talking with your event planner.
But I still think you need to reduce the number of your guests if you wish to give them souvenirs.

great! then since you have those things covered, we can then begin to plan. since you want to use your trad. wedd. as the reception, then you already have a good idea to save you a ton of money. first thing you'll need to settle is the venue. do you plan to rent a hall? or have it in the family compound? what is the size of the family compound can it accommodate your guests? (remember you are using this as reception too) since it is in the village i suggest that you look into any schools with a large field in that area and voila! you have a traditional wedding and garden reception to boot. garden receptions are really beautiful! i will send you pictures of one or two so you'll have an idea of what i'm talking about. as soon as i can. cheers
Re: I Need Help Planning My Wedding by trekkie: 11:27pm On Dec 30, 2012
hi nbless. i have not had much time to go online so i got only one picture of a garden reception but you get the idea sha.
