- A wedding estimate posted by a Nigerian man has got many people talking on social media
- Many said the cost for an event that is just for a day is ridiculous when there are cheaper options
- While some said that the list places much premium on unnecessary things, others stated they would marry with way lesser
A wedding estimate showing that the event would cost R240 000 has stirred an interesting conversation around how much intending couples should spend or not.
In the said list, the venue for 800 guests would be taking a whopping sum of R58 000 rent fee. Out of the whole budget, R9 500 will be for the decoration.
To make the event stress-free, an event planner will be involved at the great cost of R10 500. Souvenirs for the guest will gulp R60 000.
Both MC and the DJ will get the same amount of R67 000 each. A live band, perhaps for the afterparty will be costing the couple R6 700.
It should, however, be noted that the list may have been self-generated, and Briefly News could not verify if they were used for an actual wedding or not.

Meanwhile, Briefly News earlier reported that a beautiful Ghanaian couple has gotten married in a very simple wedding ceremony, observing the strict social distancing measures to avoid the spread of Covid-19.
In a video sighted by Briefly.co.za on the official Instagram handle of Facts and Truths, the wedding was held outside the chapel to avoid going against the president's orders for all church services to be suspended.
The names and exact location of the couple are not disclosed. The video has gone so viral that the spouses are already becoming known figures.
