“Excuse me?? We’re the bride’s mother’s aunties! We can’t sit at the back o!👺👺” Oh my!😂😂 It doesn’t have to exactly be this line but there’s always one drama or the other at a Nigerian wedding 😂. Hi, you’re welcome back to my blog🤗… Should’ve posted this earlier but I’ve got a number of things going on in this my small head but anyways, that’s by the way🤧. Trust me when I say the number of weddings I’ve been to so far,is equivalent to earning a PhD degree twice!- yes,I said twice 😂. So I’ve successfully gathered typical Nigerian wedding markers for this post. When you see these things,you can be 101% sure you’re at a Nigerian wedding😂.
Right from the gate of the event center, you’ll begin to see glamorous styles of Aso Ebi🤤 (even the ones your tailor said couldn’t be sown😤 ) Aso Ebi means ‘Family clothes’ in Yoruba. People start pairing up from outside to greet one another and plan to sit together.
Inside the hall is where the drama begins full time 😂. Even the person the bride met just two days before the wedding will want to sit in front claiming to know the bride 🤷. This thing in particular is very annoying 😡 if y’all don’t want to sit at the back so who will??? The couple’s ancestors??? Lesson one says, sitting at the back doesn’t mean that you’re not important. Think of if too;is it possible for every table to be in front? Of course not! So sit your ass down when you’re directed somewhere by an usher🙄.. afterall you’re not the one getting married 😑.
Eventually the guests agree to sit. And then they flip out their phones. Snapchat,IG and WhatsApp won’t rest today 💁..all this glow can’t go to waste please 💆 (this is a major reason
people ladies 🙂 go for weddings- better still,owambe😌💅)… We go to pepper them, right?🥵
There’s always a standby DJ mixing songs just the way we love it 😩 🤤. It’s very okay to nod your head and move your feet on your seat. But it’s better to hit the dancefloor when it’s time to😩 💃. This is when you see rich Daddies, Mummies, Uncles and Aunties coming to spray people money 🥺. As sweet as this part is, I’m always pained…because I can’t dance 🥺. The main aim is to be enjoy the music, dance out your sorrows and of course cash out on the dance floor🤑😂.
Food!!!!😂😂 I won’t say this is the main reason we go for weddings 😂 but deep down….you know the rest 😂😂. This party rice, like it’s fondly called,can bring out the ugliest part of a man😂. Imagine if servers keep taking trays of food past your table and you’re like “is my table invisible??👺👺” If I went to a wedding and I didn’t eat,no matter how beautiful the hall or the couple were,if you asked me how it was, I’d tell you it didn’t make sense 🙂.Despite that some tables haven’t gotten food,there will always that one table where plates always disappear 🤦. “Three people have not gotten food here o!”. “You’ve not served us here nau!👺👺” They’re never complete 🤦. So how do they take care of dirty plates that the servers never find out?! They put the plates under the table. You probably never knew🙂… you’re welcome 😂.
Fine guysss 💫🤤😂. I’ve said this before and I’m saying it again,guys look their best in native attires😭 no argument! The girls also look very good- you know,make up on fleek,the heels, the hair… forget! Nobody comes to play at a Nigerian wedding o😂. We all know we ladies like to add attachments 😒 but you see these guys😩,they just always slay effortlessly🥺♥️. Now that’s one thing you can never miss at a Nigerian wedding.
Souvenirs are also very important at our weddings 😌. No matter how little, something will definitely be shared. The beautiful part of Nigerians is this- regardless of how little the souvenir is,we always appreciate it💆 and we don’t joke with it!👺 It must reach our side!👺😂.
I’ll conclude by saying that we should cultivate the habit of giving gifts at weddings. I noticed that very few people have the understanding of giving gifts to couples and that’s honestly not good enough. “But I already bought the Aso Ebi nau,abeg that’s enough gift!👺” I know 💁. If you didn’t know this before, know it now- A wedding gift is like a physical representation of your blessing to the couple’s marriage. Lesson two says ‘Gifts are very important’.
