The bride will give the final approval for the designer to sew her kente dress and white gown for GH¢2500.

The groom's Kaftan for the traditional wedding should cost not more than GH¢1000 and GH¢500 for his designer shoes.

The couple can order their one-gram or two pure gold wedding bands for GH¢3000, locally made by top Ghanaian jewellery.

Decorations, venue, sound and catering for the wedding

Catering for 50 people at your wedding should cost GH¢2500 if the caterer charges GH¢50 per head. Remember, showing your guests' food in your wedding videos is unimportant. Budget GH¢1000 for water and drinks.

If you are lucky and your church has an excellent venue for a reception, you can hire a decor team and turn the place into a fairy tale land.

It shouldn’t cost more than GH¢2000. If you must pay for the venue, budget between GH¢1000 to GH¢1500 for a 5-hour event. Spend GH¢2000 on a quality sound system, scout for a good disc jockey, and leave GH¢1000 for miscellaneous expenses.

Publicity for the wedding

First and firstmost, you have to be very creative with her wedding hashtags.

It is very important to book a professional MC to coordinate affairs at the wedding and introduce exciting games that will make the wedding. The MC must have active social media pages with lots of engagement on their posts.
