- A wedding estimate posted by a man has got many people talking on social media
- Many said the cost for an event that is just for a day is ridiculous when there are cheaper options
- While some said that the list places much premium on unnecessary things, others stated they would marry with way lesser
A wedding estimate showing that the event would cost N7,212,267,50 has stirred an interesting conversation around how much intending couples should spend or not.
In the said list, the venue for 800 guests would be taking a whopping sum of N1,720,200 rent fee. Out of the whole budget, N282,000 will be for the decoration.
To make the event stress-free, an event planner will be involved at the great cost of 319,600. Souvenirs for the guest will gulp N1,880,000.
Both MC and the DJ will get the same amount of N188,000 each. A live band, perhaps for the afterparty will be costing the couple N199,750.
It should, however, be noted that the list may have been self-generated, and Legit.ng could not verify if they were used for an actual wedding or not.
