Nigerian Weddings Colors & Themes: Top 3 Wedding Themes (Part One)
Modern Nigerian brides now opt for a wedding with a specific theme. In the past, most couples just do their wedding based on color schemes even up til now, and it’s ok to have a wedding based on colors but even more beautiful if there’s a theme behind it! We’ve seen loads and loads of Nigerian weddings that are theme-less yet still very pretty, elegant and classy based on the colors chosen.
Choosing a particular wedding theme is not everyone’s cup of tea, but won’t it just be nice to have a theme and get the wedding co-ordinated in that particular theme. For example, when a cluless person enters a room and see’s loads of frost, snow flakes, all white decor, they can easily guess this wedding is all about the winter wonderland. Having a wedding theme makes a wedding more personal, more coordinated and definitely more beautiful!
So how does one arrive with a wedding theme?
By now, you must be thinking of how to choose a theme, what are the types of wedding theme out there. First and foremost, the couple should decide which type of wedding theme suit their personalities and lifestyle, do not copy. Just because someone else had it doesn’t mean it would be right for you, try and personalise it to yourselves, it’s much more unique that way. Once you’ve picked your theme, it’s a lot easier to coordinate the invitation, styling, favors, flowers, dresses, menu, music and all the other items required when it revolves around a specific theme.
Below are some possible wedding themes and ideas that we have gathered online which you can use for your own wedding. I have listed them in no particular order and this post would come in different parts so please stay tuned for more fabulous updates.
