Things to Note Before Marriage

We are all different people, with different traits and attributes. Sometimes, it could be difficult to live with others and cope with handling conflict. Building a relationship and spending your whole life with someone else takes a lot of patience and understanding. Before saying “I do”, or kneeling to ask “Will You Marry Me?”, you should be absolutely sure you’re making the right decision.

  • Love Yourself: Before understanding someone else’s life and personality, you have to understand and love yourself. Your beliefs, values and what you stand for should guide you in finding the person you want to be with. It is always easier loving yourself before giving love to anyone else because if anything goes wrong, you have YOU to fall back on.
  • Friendship: The first thing you must do is create a room for friendship. Make sure you’re getting married to your friend, someone you’re ready to share experiences with and someone you can laugh with. Friendship is the foundation for every great relationship and it is also very important. You need to be with someone that knows you inside and out, to know what makes you angry and your favorite snack. It will be great spending the rest of your life with your best friend, right?
  • Find beauty beneath pretty: We all know the built guys attract the ladies, and a pretty face makes the men stare. Physical appearance shouldn’t be the primary reason for your feelings! When you get married, you’re going to see the ugliest parts and you will have to stick with it. Your spouse is going to fart, snore, and may look terrible while he/she is asleep. Love that person inside and out, for their personality and behaviors, and not looks.
  • Be prepared to watch your partner change: In about 20 years, your partner would be overwhelmed while coping with kids, a job and having time for you. Marriages are not always rosy, building a family can be stressful. With agreements and negotiations, things will always work out for you and your partner (if you marry your friend, of course!)
  • Understand your partner: Know when to stop an argument that will lead to a long fight. Know when to tease and know when to support. Understand everything about your partner. It always helps to keep a long relationship. Will your partner break up with you instantly if you have to work from another city? What kinds of activities does he/she support? Fears? Strengths? Know everything!

What Would Your Wedding Be Without Vendors?

These days, nobody does their cooking or anything else in-house. Every single detail in a wedding has a professional to take care of it. Take a second and think about how your wedding would be without vendors. Will it be you or your mother doing the cooking? Is your sister going to grab her tiny makeup purse to do your makeup?

1. Food vendors: Gone are the days where jollof rice, beef, and moi-moi made a great wedding menu. People will be there rushing for the amala, gbegiri, and goatmeat, simply because vendors spice things up. At a wedding, you want more than one vendor, for the traditional dishes and intercontinental. Food makes everyone happy at any event, and that’s why it must be done the best way.

2. Music: A bad DJ can mess up any wedding party, and as we all know, music brings life to any party. Some like to have a DJ or a live band, while others might have both.

3. Makeup artist: Makeup artists must attend to the bride from the early hours of the wedding morning and throughout the wedding. They are around to make sure the bride’s face is looking amazing all through, from dabbing sweat and applying more powder, they are always available.

4. Costumers: This is usually for the prim and proper­­. There are people that want to be styled from their gele, to their wedding dress, and to the after-party. Some couples even have themes for their weddings or would want some particular styles of outfits.

5. The wedding planner: Every big wedding must have a wedding planner. The smaller and lowkey weddings can get away with it, but for a wedding to stand out, it can't do without a wedding planner. They help bring the wishes of the couple to reality and interpret the bride's dreams. They also help bring every other vendor together.

6. Baker: Although nobody knows who actually gets a piece of the wedding cake apart from the family wedding, the baker needs to be professional. It adds up to the theme and craft of the wedding. People still come out to talk about the look of a wedding cake. It still happens!

7. Photographers/ Videographers: Every wedding records a memory, and those memories need to be captured and shared. Photographers and videographers a place for everyone too see what happens during the wedding.

8. Decorators: The decoration is the first thing people see. This is another thing that takes a lot of money apart from the hall and the food. From the walls to the floor, to the tables and cutleries! Decorators can make a raggedy and dry-looking place come alive.

9. Tailors: Be-spoke suits and dresses that are made to wear! These miracle workers create the best outfits for weddings and also develop styles for the couples and even anyone that needs to attend a wedding.

10. Car rentals: People always want to make an entrance with flashy cars they can’t afford. Cruising in with the limos and Rolls Royce after the church wedding. It just adds to the style and swag, and everyone loves it.
