Hello babies. I hope your week is going wonderful. So in my last post i told you guys i was going to write about '3 things i have learnt from attending Nigerian weddings'. So here we go.
Now, I lay no claims to knowing it all, and also Nigerian weddings differ, so whatever I say here may not apply to any wedding you may have attended or would attend so let's be guided. As a young lady who lives in Nigeria, I have attended a number of weddings here, and with time, I have come to realize that there are some situations that are to be expected, so when they happen it shouldn’t come as a shock to you.
THE COUPLE MAY NOT NOTICE YOUR PRESENCE, ITS NOT PERSONAL
You shouldn't really take this personal if you happen to be a guest at a wedding. lets face facts, it's there wedding day, their day of joy, and you know how these days go. Imagine you are the one planning a huge conference and you are trying your best to make every thing perfect. Even if you hire a wedding planner, you would still find yourself, double-checking things to make sure everyone is ok.
Another reason why they may not notice you is that there are probably a thousand and one other people there, whom they also have to acknowledge. You are there to lend your support, and thats that.
PEOPLE WOULD ALWAYS FIGHT FOR SOUVERNIRS
It doesn’t matter if the souvenir is a plastic bowl, hand fan, iphone 6plus, even if it’s a pen, people would still struggle for it. Its just the way it is in our country. Why people do it, I have no idea. It even gets worse when the souvenir is something nice, na der wahala dey!
PEOPLE WOULD ALWAYS TALK
The truth is even if you sprinkle diamonds on the floor, and the plates are made of pure gold, you serve the most expensive wine. People would still talk. They would say this diamond is not shinning well, are you sure its original diamond? The wine tastes spoilt, the chicken was burnt and the beef was too spicy. Ah ah wetin sef! If the food went round, you would hear things like, see the way they wasted food, kai the food was too much. If the food did not go round! Ah that’s the worst. They would say so after all this yanga they can't even give us common food. In fact they would say, we went to so so and so’s wedding and there was no food shikena.
