      Nigerians have one gift, the ability to be fixated on one thing to the point that it becomes annoying. The wedding industry and “thing” has become tiresome. There is need for something else to be glorified How about agriculture, maybe we ought to glamorize the agricultural sector and make it sexy? Maybe, MAYBE, we can creat more jobs and other supporting industries like logistics needed for distribution channels, canning, preservation, agrochemical etc. For the most part we lack imagination and wait until someone does something then we copy it to the point of irritation. Enough already with weddings! Find something else to fixate on. I stopped opening these wedding stories since they are essentially all the same. Same made up faces by the same people, same colors, same over weaved bleached girls, same groomsmen with sunglasses(god, do I hate that, personally I think it disrespectful and bush). Same caterers, same venues, same events planners etc. now summing up to an over priced over bloated over hyped party(yes, a wedding is a fk$&kng party). Everybody now look exactly the same. And what really really annoys me is when people spend so much money on these parties and “my own better pass yours carnivals” and something as simple as ironing/steaming the table cloths or a tilting cake is overlooked. Heap of crap! This is the very last wedding I will open. There’s got to be other more enjoyable contents.

      Sorry that you are irrritated, but honestly it’s not fixation. The Wedding Industry has come to stay.
      True, there are amateues who just want to quickly latch on just to make money eg the make-up industry.
      I used to think, what’s the big deal till mine. No matter how small you persoonally want it, you ll still find aunties bringing their own food, cousin’s bringing in girlfriends. My small wedding was almost a flop because the older generation didnt coperate.They didnt understand why I wanted a small out-of-church, garden wedding. The younger generation enjoyedddddd it.

      The only thing BellaNaija has done is to make it glossy, these things have always been there.Weddings are a tradition in Nigeria ( Rest of Africa, Asian countries sef) I remember when I went to buy my shoes. A Sudanese attended to me and when I told her I wanted something for my tradtional wedding. She was excited and immediately understood what it meant and what I wanted.We connected. Wedding ceremonies are a significant ( almost mandatory) part of us. Before Bellanaija, there was Ovation, before Ovation there was NTA’s coverage of weddings at the tail end of there Sunday news. THERE WILL ALWAYS BE THE NEXT BIG THING.
      So please calm down. The Industry has come to stay. Like it or not.

      Bella Naija, my comment is meant to be a complement to you guys!
      In a capitalist world, the way forward for unemployment is: Create jobs out of nothing.
      Package yourself well and sell it. Oyibo man knows that and has been doing it!

    …trust me, after the Mariam Adeyemi – John Timmer saga, I am soooo over extravagant weddings. It was like I got purged of the desire for such things.
    *BN, please, post my comment. Thank you.*

    • TheRealist

      November 12, 2015 at 2:52 pm

      LOL! I was also wondering if the Mariam-John Timmer wedding will make it to the show…

      @ Duni

      Iol…it’s like saying after you found out your boobs isn’t as big as when you wear push up bra, they should stop making these bras to be more realistic.
      We live in a capitalist world, more and more competition in everything. It’s quite scary at times but hey thats the different corners of life. Mariam and John are three out of five “couples” that they are in such situations. Majority of people are living the “faking until it’s real” life and face the consequences silently. It’s their life. It’s also fun to watch. Just like you get fascinated with Hollywood celebrities even though we know their reality is far from what the put out.

    Nice if a person can truly afford a great wedding. Just make sure that the quality of the marriage surpasses that of the wedding. When people see you 10years after your wedding,let them say wao. Praise God.

    Ironically, I like big weddings, My Mom as well, and thank God my family can afford it. However, I won’t like my weddings on blogs, or websites, and they likes, so I’m always taken aback when people are supposedly obsessed about these things. Guess people are different.

  15. Salha

    November 12, 2015 at 5:43 pm

    IMO I think they are actually trying to make a mockery of us. Big, gigantic weddings are as meaningless and as tacky as those words themselves.Only Nigerians seem not to realize. Lol, that’s why when the marriage is in shambles they still stay inside because they invited the whole world, strangers and non strangers to be accountable to for the success of their union. Whether you can afford it or not, big weddings are silly! Because one can afford houses in every country, doesn’t mean he should build one or buy one in every country.What exactly are they big for? Celebration of love yet to be proven? Or happiness or children yet to come? I don’t understand. You borrow money and empty your bank account to prove what? You’re in love? Or you have money? Or you’re happy? Anyways Nigerians never approach anything from a logical standpoint, so it’s hardly surprising. Back in the 80s and 90s they used to but sense is no longer, even with the big wedding and pre photo ops, the groom is either somebody’s husband or gets his side chick preggers after a while or they both start cheating on themselves few weeks after. I went for a wedding in Nigeria immediately before I went back to my base and the extravagance and ostentatiousness perplexed me with over 500 guests. I was just thinking to myself “what exactly does this do for the couple and their marital journey?”

    • The real Ibinabo

      November 12, 2015 at 11:06 pm

      Well Nigerian weddings (Infact African and SE Asian weddings) will always be larger than the average caucasian wedding because we have larger sized families. A friend’s wedding (here in the UK) had only 100 guests and it was strictly by IV. It was very easy to manage and intimate but in my mind I was like “who born me to try pull this kain stunt” .Just my mum’s family has over 100 members then add my dad’s family to the mix, hubby’s family and our friends.Who will I now exclude from the guest list? Big weddings in Nigeria are kind of a necessary evil.

      See, typical Nigerian mentality. We are never confident in the things we own. We always wait for Western approval/endorsement of what is right and wrong.
      How about Sweet Sixteen that used to show on MTV base, was that mockery? It is call showcase. This is Export. I have a feeling BN has a hand in this. I just can’t shake it off

    • Dee-I-love-Big-weddings-and-I-won't-lie

      November 13, 2015 at 10:20 am

      I love big weddings- because weddings are an opportunity to have a huge-ass family reunion. Also more manageable back then cos no need for hall- block the street or get a school field, iya alase will collect small money for food and DANCE DANCE DANCE!!!

      Tbh I am also one of those who would like to have a house beside my mum and dad and mum-in-law and dad-in-law and sisters and brothers. PS. I love family (maybe it’s some psychological reaction to a repressed isolation

      Without going into too much details, I have 8 siblings, and grew up with a lot of cousins- I left 9ja after sec school, and have since lived in 3 countries, so I have a lot of family and friends I haven’t seen in a while. Fast-forward to my wedding- what other excuse for everybody to be in my house (am i the only one who longs for the weddings when your house was full for a week before the wedding- and there is cooking and all- and dainty gals will be cutting salad ingredients)?
      I was sooooooooooo sad when I was told to have a small wedding!!! (spiritual palaver) (well made do with 250 on a weekday but I still almost cried cos non-Lagos family members were not told- so no afefe yeye in the house leading up to my wedding :), and didn’t tell some friends too, but it’s ok cos I still danced and took pictures to my heart’s content hehehe

      Small weddings don’t guarantee happiness too jare- and life happens- big wedding, small wedding, if yawa gas- some will talk about you and move on- you will be surprised how many people don’t even remember your wedding

      so my take is do what makes u happy- within limits- no need to buy more material than u need to sew coat wey go size you, abi how do they say it

    The Weddings vs BN issue is a case of reverse causation. Nigerian wddings were big not this BIG. Now people are tying to out do the last BN feature. It is well o

    Big or small I always like seeing the cultural aspects of weddings and I watch almost all culture but naija peeps always take the cake least as far as asthetics. This will be such a lovely show can’t wait to see trads from urohbo to fulani to ugbo to hausa to yoruba to itshekiri loads of color. I’m still gonna have a quick 5min court wedding though 😀

    Hian! BN has the most envious commenters ever. How can some of you say that big weddings are tacky and extravagant weddings only end up in divorce. Do you have statistical proof that this is the case? Let us all just be honest with ourselves you naysayers secretly wish you could have one of the weddings BN features on their site. If not, then why even come to this site to view pictures from these big and extravagant weddings ?!? I’m not married yet but I love how BN has brought Nigerian weddings to the spotlight. Now many of my non-Nigerian friends are dying to attend Nigerian weddings even my Indian friends are hailing our weddings and Indians are known for lavish weddings that span over multiple days.

    Whether or not the marriage works it’s none of your business. If they give you people money ya’ll will still have the so called ‘tacky’ big wedding. Let people do their marriage and wedding how they want. That’s like saying we shouldn’t live life to the fullest just because we know we will eventually die. Nigerians like doing I too know. If people want to have big wedding let them, if you want small wedding do it too, but don’t do and then be mad because someone went all out for theirs. You only have one wedding, or a few wedding in a lifetime, sheesh.

I will be watching y’all keep it coming.. No matter how over d top it looks I no dey carry high BP at all.

    the problem with Nigerians is that they never appreciate anything good. there are many shows and many entertainment, its not a competition its just the beauty of wedding. wedding is done once and i think it is beautiful to experience the joy of other people’s weddings the problem with Nigerians is negative mouth
