These ideas from across the border are quite cool. You could infuse them to spice up your wedding.
The foods, drinks and wedding ideas might differ, but in essence, the day is one for fun and rejoicing.
If you ever feel like incorporating a little foreign idea to spice up your big day, you could use these.
Instead of a cake or cakes, couples in France present their guests with a croquembouche which is nothing but a mountain of tasty pastries.
Now you could do this, too.
If you are worried of disappointing those who came majorly for the cake and little else, you could make a cake and a croquembouche.
Hey, who says you can't be a trendsetter.
Still another idea from France. The couple eat a lot of chocolate out of a toilet bowl. This one is said to give them extra strength towards the consummation of their wedding.
Well, you could eat the chocolate not for the strength [Jollof rice and dodo will do a better job at that], and you could as well bypass the toilet-basin aspect of things.
Maybe take it from each other's lips as an alternative.
If you are interested in long, elaborate weddings, you could travel to India for a destination wedding where their ceremonies last several days.
On the other hand, you could wed here in Nigeria and celebrate it for a number of days, maybe four or five.
That idea is not entirely new in Nigeria by the way, as Orobosa Igbinedion and Ibrahim Mantu recently did something similar.
Other ideas that you might find fascinating is one in Germany where the parents of the couple plant a tree as soon as she is born, so as to sell it when she gets engaged and use the proceeds of the sale to fund the wedding.
In Jamaica also, the couple invite the whole community to their wedding. Literally everyone.
