Nigerians are known for organizing the biggest weddings in Africa and it looks like this is how it will be done for the next forever years.

Pulse Nigeria readers say Nigerians love to have the big fat weddings because that's what they do and nothing will and can change that.

At weddings held in Nigeria or by Nigerians, its always full on fun fare, lots of food and drinks and the crowd is always above the budgeted number. Gate crashers are also part of the party and some how, they eat and drink more than those who were actually invited.

"Nigerians are my favorite clients because they always go overboard when celebrating something good,"Christiana  Holt, CEO of Wedding Concepts, South Africa explained at the Atinuda press conference in Lagos on June 8.

"However, weddings are all about love and happiness and not necessarily about being exaggerate."
