Yup. I had a traditional Nigerian wedding and opted out of having a European traditional white wedding. Most Nigerians splurge and have both weddings. Then I went to City hall for the license. Nigerian weddings are a sight to behold…

I was just at my cousin’s wedding last week and the outfits are serious business. The traditional wedding was on the first day, she wore her white dress for the church ceremony, and the four, count ’em, FOUR different outfit changes during the reception. And they were all a variety of traditional, matching couple outfits. It was great. I was just a guest and I felt exhausted ahaha
