Planning a low key wedding still involves spending a reasonable amount of money, not to talk of the kind of wedding that breaks the internet. Obviously, this couple has wealthy and generous friends and family who do not mind their pockets.

We all pray to have this kind of gifts, but then where did all these money come from? Nigerians are supposed to be in a “No money state” or should I say “lowkey mood” or “saving mode.”

In the midst of the supposed “hard times” some people still have unlimited streams of income that makes them immune to economic crisis.

Unlike the Newlywed who sent an email to one of their wedding guests, complaining that her gift was “insufficient,” this couple would have to send lots of thank you messages to their guest for making their day so money-ful.
