How to plan a wedding
Decide to go for a court wedding
If your plan of holding a wedding ceremony on the budget I mentioned above, then you have no choice other than to go for a court wedding. Court weddings or wedding in a court is quite affordable than going for the church weddings.
Going for the church wedding will make you spend much more than you will ever imagine considering the way most churches conduct their weddings now. Court wedding is budget friendly and saves a lot of time and stress too.
In case you are wondering how much it costs to get wedded in a court, it cost Twenty-five thousand naira (N25, 000) to get everything done, including the marriage certificate.

Go for your old suit
Am not trying to sound odd but I know you have a suit already so why go for another if the old one is not in good shape get a tailor to help you put it in order. The fact that you are on a budget does not mean you should look funny on your wedding day. It will not cost you much to get that old suite fixed.
On the side of the lady, since we already choose to go by a court wedding, you don’t need a wedding gown. Kindly be in your best dress, well ironed and put on the best smile you got a girl, it is your day.
Get a friend’s Car/Uber
If you have the money flaunt it, go on charter a fleet of a car but since we don’t have that much to spend on this special day lets use what we got. As a man you must have that friend with that sleek car, perfect, now is time to holla at him/her.
Anyone you call a friend would not hesitate to lend his car knowing full well you are using it for your wedding. You can be nice by suggesting fueling the car to and fro the venue for the wedding, that sound good right?
Moving on how to plan a wedding within a good budget
In a situation where you have no one to talk to about the car, you can call an Uber driver, their services are quite affordable.
Get a nice and affordable ring
This where some persons get it wrong. Rings are a symbol of unity between you two; it is special but shouldn’t be why you should get loans from banks to buy. There is quality yet affordable ones out there, visit the mall and find out for yourself.
Reception should be strictly by Invitation
This is another good way on how to plan a wedding within a tight budget that won’t break the bank. In Nigeria why most couples go broke or go borrowing after their wedding is because more number of persons showed up at the wedding.
No matter how much you budget for drinks and food, if you don’t restrict a number of persons that show up at the venue, you will end up spending more than you have in your bank. So to take care of this, the couple will only invite close relations and the people they cherish and nothing more.
Rent a nice space
How to plan a wedding within a budget involves you think outside the box. Don’t rent out a five-star space that will put you in debts after the wedding. It is simply not a wise decision. Rather visit some churches around with some nice spaces for a wedding reception, or event centers around your city.
Cut down on bridal train/best men
Some persons like it loud and large when it comes to bridal train, it is your choice. If you must have a huge line up of bridal train, then you should only get friends who are well to do. Your bride’s maid or best men will carter for their clothing.
Hook up with a photographer friend
Pictures and videos are part of what people spend mostly on during their weddings. So don’t be surprised finding it on our list of how to plan a wedding. You surely need a photographer to take pictures on your special day, so meet that photographer friend of yours.
