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 trad nd white wedding in Nigeria. Pls your opinions should be based on the emphasis, 'AVERAGE NIGERIAN' and on the economic conditn prevalent in d country. I would love contribution from single female folks nd married men and just about anyone wit an idea

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