Any wedding planner will advise that keeping a planning checklist or to-do list of the things you need to do is crucial to ensure you get everything done before it’s too late. Most Nigerian couples spend 12 months (from after their engagement) to plan their weddings, but not everyone likes to wait that long to get married. If you prefer a short-engagement or simply just want to plan your wedding in a short time-frame, we have a checklist on how to plan a Nigerian wedding in 3 months or less. This checklist in this article is scheduled over a 12-month timeframe. It is your month by month wedding planning countdown calendar, in a to-do list format, to guide you through the steps to preparing for a white wedding, down to every last detail. Your Nigerian white wedding planning checklist starts below:
Immediately After Your Engagement (Things to Do)
- Congrats, your guy has proposed! It’s time to have an engagement party OR just take some time to soak in the reality that you’re now nearly-married. Enjoy the moment, and don’t rush to start planning the wedding so soon.
- (For Groom) While you’re still enjoying your engagement, start researching arrangements for your customary marriage introduction, bride price, and traditional engagement list. We created a special checklist to help you stay organized before and up to your Nigerian traditional wedding day.
