The post from Nigerian lady Okpe Faith has gone viral on social media, with many people applauding her for her frugal approach to her wedding. In a country where lavish weddings are often the norm, Faith’s decision to have a court wedding that cost less than ₦30,000 is a refreshing change.
Faith’s message is clear – if you cannot afford a big wedding, don’t let that stop you from getting married. A court wedding is a legal and legitimate way to get married, and it is often much cheaper than a traditional wedding. Faith’s wedding had just two witnesses, and the entire ceremony lasted less than 10 minutes.
The photos that Faith shared on her Facebook page show her and her husband looking happy and in love, and it is clear that their wedding day was a special one for them.
Faith’s message is not just about saving money, but also about the importance of focusing on what really matters in a marriage – love, commitment, and partnership.
Faith’s post has sparked a conversation about the pressure that many couples face to have a big, expensive wedding. In Nigeria, weddings are often seen as a status symbol, and many couples feel that they need to spend a lot of money to impress their friends and family.
But Faith’s story shows that a wedding is not about impressing other people – it is about celebrating your love and commitment to each other.
Okpe Faith wrote her Facebook page;
“This was my first wedding. It happened at the marriage registry, costs less than ₦30,000, had just two witnesses and the entire ceremony was less than 10 minutes.”
“If this is all you can do, please do it with your full chest. If you are a Christian, your pastor can just pray for you after this and you move in to live together and start your family.”
Many people have praised Faith for her bravery in sharing her story, and for encouraging other couples to consider a court wedding. Some have shared their own stories of having small weddings, while others have expressed regret for spending too much money on their own weddings.
In a world where social media can make it seem like everyone else is having a big, glamorous wedding, Faith’s message is a reminder that there is no one right way to get married. What matters most is the love and commitment that you share with your partner.
