Themed weddings made our list of top Nigerian Wedding Trends in 2016 and since then, the themes have been more creative and exciting. Every time we think we’ve seen the best theme, another Nigerian wedding comes up showing us that the best is yet to come. In this post, we’ve put together some Nigerian wedding theme ideas that made us stop and pay attention.
From Sade & Jude’s rustic Nigerian wedding, Ada & Uche’s social media themed wedding to Sumbo and Moses’ farm themed traditional wedding, these themes will inspire you.
Northern Nigerian bride, Fatima Ganduje from #FAAJI2018 had an Arabian-themed henna night, which featured camels, bright reds, and all the glitz and glamour associated with the Arabs. See photos by George Okoro Weddings.
Dami & Deji’s traditional wedding was all shades of cultural, vintage, retro. The stage decor by Events by Claud featured a typewriter with a love note from Deji to Dami in Yoruba. The stage also had items from the 70’s like CDs from Ebenezer Obey, a black and white TV, old magazines, lanterns and more.
Sumbo and Moses had a farm-themed traditional wedding planned by #LWNGVendor and Nigerian wedding planning company, TrendyBE Events. The wedding featured farm produce – fresh fruits, vegetables and more. The hostesses looked the part with their white traditional attires, hairstyle, and beads; the waiters dressed up as palm wine tappers and rode bicycles around the reception hall serving palm wine to guests.
Ada and Uche had a social media-themed wedding planned by #LWNGVendor and Nigerian wedding planner, IPC Events. The couple’s social media-themed wedding featured Whatsapp wedding invitation cards, BBM chat inspired menu cards, Twitter cocktail glasses, place cards made up of the actual tweets guests uploaded about the wedding, a QR code to allow guests upload photos and videos to the #AdUche2016 wedding social media page and more.
Sade & Jude proved it’s very possible to have a rustic-themed wedding in Nigeria. The couple got married in September 2017 and their wedding was planned by BSignature Events. Their theme was very refreshing, unique and creative. From their fingerprint wedding logo to their wooden wedding cake by Dainty Affairs.
