How to Guarantee that Your Wedding Day Will Be Perfect and Wow Guests in 6 Steps

Before the Wedding Day: For your pre-wedding-day planning, you need vendors/ wedding service suppliers, and you also need a professional wedding planner and/ or close friends and/or family members to help you plan out the wedding detail, as well as execute the plans.

On the Wedding Day: For the wedding day coordination, you need an event coordinator or wedding planner or close friends/ family to ensure that everything runs as planned – manage all the vendors, organize things behind the scene so that what the guests would see is nothing short of a fabulous wedding. Whether you plan to hire a wedding planner or not, it’s a good idea to get your hands on our wedding reception planning and coordination checklists below:

#4. Avoid these Common Wedding Planning Mistakes

One mistake we see many Nigerian brides-to-be (and grooms too) make is that they focus on planning their wedding wears so much that they ignore (or forget) planning for the people who can help them in the pre-wedding planning and day-of-wedding coordination. A lot of times, we see such brides being so much stressed out, running helter skelter around town following up and checking out wedding service suppliers. In most cases, such brides have almost a dozen bridesmaids and groomsmen on their wedding day, who they didn’t care to ask to help out in their wedding preparations. And, the stress of all the doing-everything-alone always shows on their wedding photographs.

Listen up, ladies, bridesmaids and groomsmen have ROLES beyond posing beside you to glam up your wedding day pictures.

Pre-wedding Stress spoils the wedding photos: What’s the point of planning a wedding if you’ll never be able to show off the wedding pictures – just because you were looking stressed and ugly in it. Learn from the mistakes of bridezilla brides and plan early to involve other people in your pre-wedding planning. Wedding planning is not just about shopping for pretty wedding dresses and trad wears.

Know this: if you try to do too many things yourself, and stress too much before your wedding, you are most likely going to look UGLY and stressed in your wedding photos. I don’t want that for you. I want to publish your wedding photos here, and I can’t do that if you’re not looking your best:)

Brides Always Forget Some Important Things: Due to the stress of pre-wedding planning activities some brides forget important wedding-day details. So, you need people around to help you keep tab on things. We’ve seen and heard about couples that forgot to bring their wedding rings to the church/ worship house (for the solemnization ceremony).

    Such an informative article. Making a checklist is very important so we don’t forget things. Also, we should be planning our budget as well which is vital 🙂

  2. I like your write up. My white wedding is coming up in few months time. Almost everything I read here happened on my day of Traditional Wedding, disappointments from all corner, ranging from committee to vendors, even the band came very late, the venue decoration was far from what we requested and paid for, despite all our follow-up. In fact, I can’t say all. I pray to get the right vendors for the white wedding.

    • Thank you so much for sharing your personal experience with horrible wedding service providers/ vendors. As they say, ‘experience is the best teacher’ -that experience better equips you to know what and what types of vendors to avoid, how to choose right and the importance of starting early to look for vendors. Be sure to vet them first and if you’re not satisfied, move on to vet the next, and next, UNTIL you find the right one.
