#11. Facebook Groups for Events/ Wedding Professionals
There are a number of Facebook groups where events and wedding service providers and wedding accessories shops visit daily to advertise, often showing off pictures of their work, with their contact information. You can post a question asking something like ‘I need an affordable wedding hall in Abuja’, or ‘Looking for an Enugu based makeup artist for December wedding’ or Í’m looking for an Alaga in Washington DC’- and you’ll be surprised to see actual wedding vendors replying with their contact information – ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CHOOSE AND CONTACT SOME/ ALL, AND LATER VET THEM TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT ONE FOR YOUR EVENT. Now, here are some free-to-join Facebook groups to start with – they are where wedding and event professionals (based in Nigeria, some based abroad) frequently hangout:
- Nigerian Wedding Vendors Marketplace (Group) – here, there are even photographers and vendors that cater to Nigerian weddings abroad. The best part is that on this group, Nigerian wedding vendors are regularly posting special discounts that they don’t post elsewhere.
- Nigerian Wedding Vendors Group
- Nigerian Wedding Pictures Group
