A Nigerian lady, Amarachi Ugwanyi, has gone online to speak on the need for people not to break their banks before they can have a beautiful wedding.
In a post shared on Facebook, the lady wrote: “Wedding is not expensive, na you wan impress village people.”
The bride then went to offer those looking for how to cut costs on their wedding ceremonies to reach out to her
Have an elaborate wedding if you want to
Photos of her wedding have her and her husband in simple clothes with a few family members and friends present.
In a recent post after her earlier photos went viral, Amarachi said she crafted her message in such a way that it got the needed attention. She slammed those who misinterpreted her. The lady said she is not stopping those who want elaborate weddings.
People are scared
The newly married wife went ahead to speak about how people are scared of getting married because of the cost.
She stated that some churches are culpable in promoting a culture of lavish spending. In her words:
“Churches also contributed so much to the fear most persons are having I’m getting married. Somewhere churches rulers are very extreme that couples tend too halt their plans till they can have all the savings in the world. That’s by the way.”
Her latest post:
Want to address few things about the misconception some of you had with my post.
Yes I am doing it because it’s important I do so. See when I was in school, headlines are important if you must sell a story. It’s imperative that you use a catchy headline to do so else your newspaper publication will dump in your office.
I had a message to pass and am not a celebrity, I had to apply the knowledge I got from school to make it sell and thats why you are seeing my post everywhere. If I had used the usual caption like some of you will ever wish, I don’t think the message will get to its audience.
I passed a message on how those who can’t afford an elaborate wedding can still go ahead to pull it without breaking the bank. I am not in anyway against you doing one if the resources is there. I am only saying that instead of exhausting your life savings trying to please the teaming crowd and at the end stay in debt you can opt for less expensive wedding and that’s it.
From the messages I got inbox, it’s obvious a lot of persons are even afraid of marriage preparations than the marriage itself. Some persons had also gone ahead to make families and can’t afford to do an elaborate wedding, but because they are scared of how the public will see it, they are doing everything humanly possible to exhaust their life savings just to do what the society wants and at the end who is going to lose?
Some saying things without reading to understand for me sound very uneducated or are not aware of the fact that things are terribly expensive that an average Nigeria find it difficult to even feed three square meal daily not to talk of feeding a teaming crowd.
These set of people also sound like those that turn the pages of newspaper upside Down to read. Next time please read to comprehend. A lot said am making them feel inferior of their marriage, others also said God forbid they have my kind of marriage 😂.
My dear it’s only your pocket that will determine what you have at the end else Sapa go run am for you.
Read to understand always before dropping comments. Every news flying round the media has a target audience, I got the audience I needed and they are all in my inbox asking how they can go about it. I am most delighted to be teaching them how they can do it without breaking the bank. Some other even have the resources but are afraid of the crowd. If I didn’t post just maybe they would wallow in their fear. Those with elaborate wedding have been posting theirs and we have never bashed them so why bashing those that cant afford an elaborate wedding for celebrating their little win.
The much you can do is type with your keypad but as long as people like us can afford data, am not sure you can stop us cause we are unstoppable , so please quit trying. I had so many revelations plus information that most of you may be yearning you have, that’s grace by the way. Churches also contributed so much to the fear most persons are having I’m getting married. Somewhere churches rulers are very extreme that couples tend too halt their plans till they can have all thee savings in the world. That’s by the way
I want to specially thank all the media that was used to disseminate my message
I didn’t see it going this far but this was pulled beyond my expectations. I am most delighted.
