Oga make we no lie to ourselves this amount no fit work. In 2016 wey I do my wedding I tot 600k fit work, but o boy e no work at all. There are some hidden cost wey you no go ever think about when making your budget, dem be small small things o but na them dey chop money pass. Even the warri you dey talk so the hall wey we use do our wedding was 150k. At the end both traditional and the white, we spent more than 2m, even as we try to manage reach. Maybe except you are doing both wedding same day and also in empty space.
Where you use as hall? Mother of redemer church at airport junction get hall for back. In 2014 when my niece did her wedding, na there she use. Between30-50k. Just book early.
A friend used great friendship hall in okere ugborikoko road( 25k).
There a hall opposite Robinson plaza in one of those street off emebiren, hall na 25k
Guy, as at 2014, my niece run hers with 700k circa. Dont know about now wey bubu dey seat and bag of rice na 20k plus.
We minimise so much. The groom suit was 15k. (Bespoke. Na my tailor sew am) The guy man no even buy new shoe. Him use d one him get before. I can't say so much here.

Where I'm planning to get the apartment (Alapere, Ketu)

Room+parlour self (300-400k -1st year)

2 bedroom flat (550-700k- 1st year)

I just need good advice. Thanks

Bros, where is the man in you?
seeking for advice on a mere apartment to rent? Then what happened when major issues of marriage that requires decisive action started coming up?
I doubt if you will make a good husband.

I get you bro, my church (Catholic) in Warri gives hall for parishioners at the rate of 50k while 30k for open field, if you are not a member of the church, you pay 80k.

A tailor did a suit for my guy who got married last year October for 18k, men the suit bam die, life na just sense, no go do pass yourself. With 700k, an average guy can do a wedding, you don't need to spend millions, no go they out fear for people mind.

it has to do with your income, don't go for any apartment that costs more than 40% of your income annually.. if you do, you will be sorry.

Na wetin dey kill una be that, wetin some go get for 500 naira another person go get am for 2000naira, it's OK

How? Can you explain better? Because, I didn't state it anywhere that I prefer an expensive event hall. Who doesn't want to get something at a cheaper rate? I am just saying, it's just not available.
As in, we went looking round for cheaper hall, we couldn't even get.
If you mean, we could have gone looking for one outside Ajah, the wedding venue (church) was at Ikoyi and you don't want people driving all day from church to reception hall considering Lagos traffic.

I don't know about those locations in Abuja environs but Apapa is a no no. The road network there is horrible! Although, Ajah is quite expensive for an average Nigerian who got wedded but it's better than Apapa or Okokomiako, which is the worst of the worst. shocked Na marriage no be death penalty. Going through this thread, to be a man is not a day's job. embarassed

Re: What Apartment Is Best For A Newly Wedded Couple? by Kakamorufu(m): 7:54am On Sep 30, 2019

Na normal thing, they will hike the prices but if you go through someone who has uded or insider you will get good prices.
You can also check churches around those areas with halls, preferably Catholic, Anglican etc

We didn't know anyone to go through.

Mr man, first of all, cut the wedding expenses short and don't mind what any fvcking person will say. I am sure u are an average guy and that's why u are asking prices for accommodation so that u can be prepared(rich dudes won't come here to ask)

2 bedroom is the best cos u will be having kids after your wedding. Should I remind u again? DON'T DO MORE THAN YOURSLEF IN THE NAME OF TRYING TO IMPRESS OR JOINING THE TREND.

If your wife to be wants a lavish wedding, tell her to bring money from her parents cos nobody will help u feed her after lavish wedding. Use your brain, get the accommodation first then use the remaining money to Wed.

There is one in chisco area, I can't remember the name. Someone rented it for 250k or so for a day but used it for only 5 hours.
Another good idea is too get an hotel and book all the rooms, with that they will give you all the floor or open field free or at least very cheap and you can always get your money back from those visiting family and friends you booked rooms for... let's say you book a full hotel for a day for like 500 or so and they gave you their floor for free or 100k... by the time those people you booked a room for pay you back or at least you recuperate like 400k back, you will realize what you pay for hall is very cheap and you will also enjoy benefit of closeness, since some of your guests are lodging there

Remember not every body have parents.

Abi do working class orphans don't get married?

Please don't put fear for guys mind biko

There are still low cost budget wedding one can still do. Get married and live peacefully. Everything is communication and understanding.

For me? Introduction, white wedding and court wedding.

Everything on low budget, lemme soft pedal on my man . We are not doing a carnival show.

Please before renting the house make sure you look at the Calibre of people living in the house and do not go for more than a room self contain or a room and a parlour self contain for start depend on what you have. Let your wife know that her taste should not be ajebo type for now because you need to start planning ahead of your family. And finally the moment you are married,you should start planning when and how you will have your own house somewhere even if you will not be living there for now. If you rent a house with more than a room remember family members will be coming to stay with you wilhich is not advisable for start. hunnnnnnnn well God will help you.
guy follow this best advise
Re: What Apartment Is Best For A Newly Wedded Couple? by fcdgrand(m): 1:31pm On Oct 01, 2019
even if you have the money, do you come lagos to make money for landlord, save more money for future use e.g build your own house, one room self contain is ok for a start

Please, respect your partner,don't treat her like a slave or maid.
Please,don't mind this guy o.if you can afford it,take a mini flat,at least you can still manage it with 2kids...till you can afford bigger.
BTW,be planning towards having your own house,no matter how small!!!
Your marriage will be a fruitful one.
