THE WEDDING ISSUE Hi guys, welcome once again. It’s the last quarter of the year again and hmmm…wait! I smell weddings! Romance, fashion, colour, food and wine is always a good accessory for these last few months and we are of course, here to show you how to rock that special day in the city of Lagos! Before I got married, one important piece of advice I got was to make an Excel document. Yes, an excel document like you’re at work!. Write down the things you think you’ll need, how critical they are, the person responsible and any other factors. Agree on your budget, priorities (like if you’d rather save more money and use it for the honeymoon), family issues, number of guests, etc with your spouse

Next, get a planner- many weddings have gone well without a planner but a planner’s professional touch cannot be overemphasized. Also, the planner understands how best to work with your budget and get a unique experience. Planners have also tried various vendors and are more likely to identify those who are best at what they do. See some below: 
