- Wedding event planner Whitney Boakye-Mensah wrote an open letter to potential brides on her Instagram
- She warned them not to spend too much on the wedding or get lost in the need for an extravagant wedding
Wedding and event planner Whitney Boakye-Mensah recently shared her thoughts and advice for brides about to do their white wedding.
NAIJ.com was pleased with her advice that brides should focus on the quality of the marriage not the quantity of likes their wedding will get online.
She said: "My dear Brides to be, this is 2017, I promise you the following: No, you will not die if you do not have pre and post wedding photo shoot. You will still have a wonderful wedding whether you have a bachelorette or not."
"Do not compete with all that you see on social media, social media likes will not save a marriage, you work on it everyday. Flee from pressure from frenemies who advise you to be like all you see on social media, when you owe and your name is tagged on social media, they will be the same who screenshoot to mock you with others."
"Prepare for marriage not a wedding, a wedding is but a day, maximum 2 days. Do not start your married life with debts from your wedding. Your happiness does not depend on social media likes, happiness is an inside job. Marriage is a two way affair, do not be more concerned about your bridesmaids customized robes, than your would be husband’s concerns."
"You do not need to invite the entire world as a proof of a good wedding. Always have two good friends to count on, pray for and with you, you will need it. Be prepared for frenemies. Get a trusted planner, delegate and have mad fun, it is your day."
"Treat your bridal team with respect. Again, have fun!"
