"I don't want you to waste your money on bridal dresses, food, drinks, hall, decoration, and other unnecessary things."

Gborienemi stated that the woman told him to add the money to his business instead. To achieve a simple wedding, the man settled her bride price and only took her to the altar.

They wore old clothes

He revealed that less than 10 guests from both families were present. For the ceremony, they never bought any new clothes, they wore their old ones.

The man said:

"It can only be God. It is rare to find this kind of lady nowadays. But I guess I am a lucky man. By God's grace, I added the money meant for the elaborate wedding to my business. And my business is currently doing fine. And we are happily married."
