A wedding is as much a day to celebrate a couple as it is an occasion for family and friends to come together, catch up on old times and reunite.

However, that happy event can turn into a major bore if you get stuck with a fellow guest who just dampens your mood.

Our Pulse blogger highlights the 5 kinds of people you should dodge when you attend a wedding.

  1. The person with a new Iphone 6: 'Do you mind if I get a close-up of your nails? Ta lo ba e se mehn, O get French tips yen gan... (Translation: who fixed them for you, men? They got the French tips right...) Aunty calm down,we know sey na person house rent you carry for hand.

  2. The deceptively cute flower girl: She is three. She is sweet and she is going to hug you with her cake smooched hands, pray you are not wearing white and the bride's hot male cousin couldn't make it for the wedding.

  3. The 'Mo gbo mo ya' (uninvited) guest: She's been standing alone near the catering stand looking like a serial killer for an hour now.

  4. Mummy London: A friend of the bride's mum who really hates dancing, the 2000's and as every wrong thing to say about every fly that flies. "Awon omo de isi yin, won a ko ma ma judi ka kiri nonchalantly ninu these overtly tight dresses... (Translation: All these children of nowadays, they'll just be shaking their bum anyhow in these overtly tight dresses). " Until a particular song comes on and now she's Tina Turner and the gele comes off.

  5. The mother of the next bride-to-be: In her 'Madam Kofo' inspired ice-cream cone gele, always ready with offensive, unsolicated words of wisdom. When she starts with the bride... "La le yi, igberin lo gbo do wo le, ko ya gba da da... (Translation: This night, you will conceive quadruplets so you better 'play' it well)."

Take off because she is coming for you. "Iwo ti e wa na, igba wo lo ma mu oko wa le, e o kin se omode mo, o fe di arugbo ojo si le daddy e ni? By the way, omo mi n wed next month, England la ma lo se white wedding... (Translation: So you're even here, when will you bring a man home? You're no longer a child, do you want to become an old woman in your father's house? By the way, my child is getting married next month and we're having the wedding in England."
