Nigerian Wedding Checklist: 10 to 12 Months to Wedding Day

  • Pick a date for white wedding, as well as the court registry wedding
  • Decide on the wedding location (what country, state?)
  • Define the tone, style and colour combo for the white wedding
  • Research wedding ideas for how the whole event will look and feel – take our pre-wedding quiz for couples, to help you compile ideas on styling your wedding unique
  • Start looking for suitable wedding venues and vendors
  • Set an overall maximum amount you can afford to spend (budget)
  • Set the maximum number of guests you want to invite and share the number equally between the couple, bride’s and groom’s families – see details of how to do that  in this post that teaches how to know how many guests to invite to your white wedding
  • Hire a wedding planner if you’re too busy to do the running around
  • Agree on who pays for what, and who does what – between bride and groom (planning roles & responsibilities). It’s also time to ‘beg’ parents and close family for financial support or kind contributions
  • Choose your attendants – bridesmaids & groomsmen – and inform them. [Ensure to get familiar with the things that bridesmaids are really supposed to do for a bride – read our essential Guide to Bridesmaid Duties and Responsibilities].
