How Much Should An AVERAGE Nigerian Male Budget For Marraige by clefstone(m): 9:18am On Oct 19, 2013
As much as the cost of celebrating marraiges is relative, with all indices assumed to be normal, how much should ideally be budgeted to cover cost of traditional and white wedding in Nigeria.

Please your opinions should be based on the emphasis, 'AVERAGE NIGERIAN' and on the economic condition prevalent in the country.

I would love contributions from single female folks and married men and just about anyone wit an idea.

well i know ur currency is quite different in nija but the crowd is bigger at weddings there from what ive heard. and u party longer there. Average nija wedding here for trad and white is costing between 10 and 20 thousand dollars.

that is probably between 1.5Million to 3Million approximately which should be enough for an average wedding/traditional marriage inclusive in Nigeria

As an event planner in which i am, the following breakdown shld see u thro in an average nigerian marriage. Tradition marriage plus payment of dowry and sundry expenses will gulp N450k. Note dat most homes do handle everyting in the trado, in such a case consider urself lucky because d expenses on entertaiment will not fall on u. But to be on d safe side budget atleast N450k. For white wedding propper, this is d breakdown, wedding gown N40k to N50k, wedding ring N30k to 50k, cake N30k, drinks n food N150k, reception venue like field is usually cheaper N20 to 30k. Dj N15k, decoration N50k if in an open field, if in a hall N70k. Reception hall N120k, compare dat wit a field. Souvenir N20k note dat u cld be supported by friends wit more souvenir. Mc N10k. Programme N15k. Note dat people will volunteer to assist u in some gray areas which i hav not listed here.

I support o. Don't think you will be able to get drinks and food for 150k. A cow alone is worth close to that and except you plan on serving Limca to a low no of guests, like 100, that amount will go nowhere.

The owner of the post above mine "I give up".


I wonder if the guy think that wedding is importing 40ft container of goods from China.
