Asoebi

How To Have A Nigerian Wedding Without Asoebi

Buying asoebi has become the defacto trend for every wedding. It wasn’t always like this; there was a time when our aunties and uncles used to distribute the material to their close friends and family for free.

But now, selling asoebi has turned into a moneymaking venture and a lot of couples are taking advantage of their wedding guests. Some couples can’t help the exorbitant fees because asoebi materials cost an arm and a leg in the markets!

In case this worries you, you don’t have to follow the trend. These tips will help you to have your Nigerian wedding without asoebi. You and your friends can celebrate without all the drama and bad blood expensive asoebi can bring.

Choose wedding colours

Having unique colours for your wedding is a great idea. The guests will know to show up in the colour of the day so you can have a uniform without any of the commitment or stress of arranging for asoebi. You can go further to specify what they can wear eg. yellow lace and blue gele.

Tell your guests on time

If there won’t be asoebi, let your guests know on time so they can plan their own outfits instead of depending on you to provide them with a material to sew.

Have a wedding theme

A themed wedding means that your guests will dress a certain way, so there will still be uniformity in your wedding party. Everyone will have fun dressing up to fit your theme.

Don’t get involved if your family insists

They might want to have their own asoebi, please let them. If they want to be identified by one material, they can decide to buy for themselves. Just don’t get involved.

You can have a beautiful, fun wedding without the pressure of asoebi, and you’re welcome!
