    • Akua September 18, 2013 at 2:51 pm

      I agree. I think Africans in general are taken this wedding thing to a new level. It doesn’t have to be so extravagant, it can be intimate, simple, and less extravagant. Geez…. Afterall it is about love, not wealth.

  • My name September 16, 2013 at 3:28 pm

    this is the more you look…the less you see venture. beware of swindlers in the name of wedding sponsor. did they steal to be able to give away N15m? crooks!

    that reminds me…24million naira will be given out to xfactor for singing peoples songs…talk about priority in a country called nigeria and ASUU is striking.

    • MBNWedding September 16, 2013 at 4:45 pm

      @My name – Please note that this competition is not giving away N15million cash to the couple but a wedding worth that amount. Top wedding vendors known as the “Dream Team” will put together the best of their talents and resources to give the winning couple their dream wedding. It is the combined worth of the vendors and sponsors contributions that amounts to N15million.

    It is really good for couples to have some sponsors for their wedding, as long as the sponsors are not going to make all the decisions for the couples.
