Wedding ceremonies are taken in high esteem in Nigeria; it is taken to be a day that occurs once in a personís life time, it is always a very special day for both the Bride and the Groom.

There are some factors you have to consider to make the best of your wedding day; this article will discuss few factors you need to consider when planning your wedding to make it a success.

1. Budget: I think this is the first thing to consider when planning for a wedding. How much do you really want to spend? You have to pre-agree on a price tag based on your available capital and not on pledges made. Nigerian weddings are gradually becoming expensive with cheap ones going for as low as N200,000($1000) and average ones going for around N2m($10,000) in cities like Lagos. Wedding halls and food are the major money choppers.

2. Number of Guest to invite: the number one factor to consider is the number of people that will be in attendance for the event; unless the wedding will be strictly on invitation, there is no way to know the exact number of people that will be in attendance for the wedding. But the number of people that you share your IV to will help you make an estimate of the number of people that may be in attendance for the event. For instance, if you share 200 invitation cards, you should plan a wedding for at least 300 people because many of your invitees may attend with their friends and you also have to deal with wedding crashers who come uninvited.

3. Season of Year: this is another factor to consider when planning for your wedding ceremony; the two major seasons we have here in Nigeria are the dry and the raining seasons; and fixing a wedding during the raining season means that you have to take extra care to ensure that rain will not disturb the ceremony. That is why most people love picking a wedding date during the dry season. Most Nigerians prefer the dry season to the rainy season
