The rain should never stop a special day like your wedding, so, you have to beat the rain to its game. See below five important tips that would guide you through a 'rainy season' wedding.
1 Avoid an outdoor wedding: For the sake of your decor and the guests, opt for and indoor wedding. Event centres over the years have doubled in numbers in Lagos, with over 25 centres per local government area.
