A Nigerian lady, Okpe Faith Tutu, has advised intending couples to opt for a court wedding if that is all they can afford.
She gave this advice using her first wedding as a case study which she claimed she spent N30,000 to organize.
Faith Tutu said that she had a simple court wedding event which she said took place in less than 10 minutes.
Do it with your full chest
According to her, if a simple wedding was what one could afford then it is better to opt for it.
She also said one should do it unapologetically and be proud of it.
In her words:
This was my first wedding. It happened at the marriage registry, costs less than N30,000, had just two witnesses and the entire ceremony was less than 10 minutes. If this is all you can do, please do it with your full chest.
She advised that Christians might ask their pastor to pray for them, bless their marriage and they can start living together.
Faith also shared pictures of her simple wedding to backup her claim.
