It’s becoming increasingly more difficult to plan a wedding with a budget in mind with the cost of everything going higher every year, but if you try it is still feasible to plan that special day on a shoestring. Here are a few tips to help you pinch those pennies and make the dollar stretch as far as possible.

If you have already started thinking about getting married and have looked into prices at all then you already know that the rental of a church or other indoor facility will definitely cost you money. This was a surprise to me when I got married; I thought the church would supply their building for free! It was $200 for us to use it from 9am to 11:30.


While you're out speculating the cost of a high society wedding, guys are turning deaf ears to this thread.
Who wouldn't?
It makes little sense spending all that hard earned money in tying nuptial knots.
She can as well move in with me with her parents' consent.

the profession of wedding planners are becoming more relevant today then ever. managing work and wedding, will make the bride look horrible on the d day. you probably haven't seen a wedding planned by one. there is no better thinthan having someone dedicate themselves to the practice and management of weddings and events.
you could search for good ones on the web, or ask for referrals from some people. i know one though and she's good. confetti- +2348035873486

Congrats my dear.

Planning an event could be tedious and strenous. And as a bride you should look fresh and relaxed on that day. The stress involved may not really afford you the time to take care of yourself like you would love to and if I'm to go by what you posted in your thread then you do not no the A-Z of plannimg an event. Hence, I will suggest you get a wedding planner.

Also, involving family members could be messy cos everyone wants you to do things his or her way and that is why most people prefer to hire a professional.

I know we have big-time planners that are way off in prices, but I really I belive what you pay an event planner should just be a reasonable fraction of the total cost of the event.

I'm into events planning. If you need more information in this regard, you can call me on 07028828791 or mail me at

say like how much do they charge?/
Re: How To Plan A Good Wedding? by ssRhino: 4:43pm On Aug 26, 2008
But i know that family members always help to take care of stuff, like find a friend to take care of the dresses, with your own money sha, and another friend take care of the rides, one take care of the hall for the party, one runs after the pastor, and the man will take care of the limousine, the drinks and other stuff.

The important thing is that you shouldn't spend much on unnecessary things. Concentrate more on the essential ones and cut down your costs on flowers, favors, jewelry, and lingerie. There are a number of online stores where you can purchase amazing stuffs at affordable prices. Hope this info is useful to you!

Re: How To Plan A Good Wedding? by amyliajane(f): 11:17am On Mar 11, 2011
@Quaseh, is your fee of 250k included in the 1m or separate
Re: How To Plan A Good Wedding? by Quaseh: 8:30pm On Mar 18, 2011
@amyliajane, the fee of 250k is not included in the 1m however we can do a wedding with the balance N750k so it will still come within N1m (if u wish), it is a matter of cutting back on some areas.

Then again we charge 75k for small weddings though 250k is our average price for weddings with over 250 guests. From now till 30th June 2011 our fees are-

Small wedding - N75k
Medium wedding- N125k
Large/ complex wedding- 250k

So if your wedding is not big, your fee is not up to that N250,000. Thanks for the enquiry, hope this clarification helps grin

There are some major things that can spoil wedding

Bad location or venue

tasteless food

poor chair arrangement and decoration

and audio visual equipment like projectors, sound system and so on.

These things I mentioned will determine the success of your wedding.
