The lady who went from being an extrovert to an introvert explained that being in a noisy environment hasn't always been the best for her, noting that crowd stresses her.

In her words:

"I've never dreamt about having a loud wedding with thousands or millions of people gathering together. It's a personal thing.
"I used to be an extrovert, but life happened and I became an introvert; withdrawn from the crowd and it turns out that crowd stresses me even till now.
"Noisy environment isn't the best for me. I get stressed emotionally and may break down."

Her husband had thought she was joking when she affirmed her choice for a small wedding

Olufola stated that it was few months to their wedding that it dawned on her husband that she was serious about wanting a small wedding.

She advised that people should plan their weddings according to their budget and should learn to shut down and take a break when faced with social media pressure.

"Don't allow anyone to choose for you.
"If you feel pressurized by social media, shut down and take a break.
"If you can afford it, that's good but never subject yourself to unnecessary pressure."
