When planning a wedding ceremony some families/couples save themselves the stress of the general arrangements and rather sought the service of a trusted event planner.


Weddings have become one of the biggest celebrated occasions of today, amongst other events such as birthdays, naming, anniversaries e. t. c.

A wedding ceremony is given so much value and attention that everyone is willing to give their bests just for that day. Some weddings even last for days, depending on how wealthy the family is and mostly for show-offs though. It is considered a new beginning for both couples, a new phase in the stages of their lives, so families and friends come together from afar and wide to give celebrate with their own and give their best wishes.

A wedding ceremony begins right when the couple meets either family, starting from the introduction ceremony which is the meeting of the families, then the engagement (which serves as the traditional marriage) and then the so-called white wedding. This is where Africans adopt foreign white culture. Some families even prefer to do the engagement, then set another party entirely for the traditional wedding before even the so-called white wedding(which is counted as the actual wedding).

When planning a wedding ceremony some families/couples save themselves the stress of the general arrangements and rather sought the service of a trusted event planner. While some other families prefer to handle it solely just to make sure there are no disappointments. Mostly this goes by the personalities of the families and couples getting married. Some weddings even require journeying down miles to hometowns for proper blessings.

Depending on the couple and their families, some might prefer a lavish flamboyant ceremony while some others will rather go for a cool low key ceremony. The planning involves specialties from various work types and services. For a start what to wear is a large one, the services of fashion designers who can deliver perfectly, accessories are sought for, catering services is also a very important aspect of the wedding ceremony as there has to be enough availability of food and drinks, the guests is another part, because sometimes guests have to be selected before sending out IVs, the photography/videography is also a part that can’t be neglected, trusted professionals are required in this aspect, location and hall also add to the class of a wedding ceremony and it goes on and on.

The location and hall is a generally important aspect that care has to be taken before booking. Wedding locations in this age have gone wild to the extent that any large enough space found to interesting enough can be used as the location. From times, tents and canopies have always been the location set/prepared for an event, and as time changes and improve, tents and canopies is less regarded. These days halls located in the high fashion places of Lagos have been the best locations for weddings in Lagos. Halls, beaches and even tourist centers to mention few has been in use to make a difference.

Most event planners would rather go for an indoor location to an outdoor location considering logistics and weather conditions. Whereas some others prefer outdoor location cos of the feeling of serenity it gives especially when it’s a garden.
