When it comes to weddings in Nigeria, couples have two options: indoor or outdoor receptions. The options for alternative wedding reception venues are very limited, but we’re limited by our imagination.
Maybe you don’t want a hall like everybody else, or you can’t afford it. Don’t worry, we made a list of alternatives for your wedding reception that are quite cheap too. For couples that want to do something different or can’t afford a hall the size of a small community, these options are for you:
After the wedding ceremony, everybody can just head down to your favourite restaurant. Some restaurants will let you hire out the space for a couple of hours. You can pick one that has space for dancing to your favourite songs.
We love this trend because you can have both the solemnisation and reception in one place. There are so many beaches to choose from, and you can choose to just have a laid back beach party or hire out a private beach.
If your family house has a backyard with enough space for your guests, this is perfect for an intimate wedding. With a few seats and decorative lighting, backyard weddings are romantic and cheap.
We mean that football field around your area, or an actual public park-either way, all you need is permission from the city council, seats and a canopy to get the party started.
Dinner at home
For the very very low key couple, a quiet dinner at home with a few friends and family will save you a lot of money and the intimacy is perfect.
These ideas will save you money and time, and make for very nice photos too!
