Nothing is supposed to go wrong at weddings but surprisingly a lot of things do go wrong. Four Nigerian brides share their worst nightmare and it all had to do with guests.
1. Abigail says a guest almost ruined her wedding with bad remarks:
"About a year after my wedding, a close friend who was in attendance shared that another guest had some not-so-nice remarks about my reception at their table. "This is so disorganized. Why doesn't anyone know what's going on?" she expressed in disgust. Her complaints apparently continued for several minutes and were in reference to some confusion between our ceremony and cocktail hour. This complainer is the wife of one of my husband's best friends, so we've been in each other's presence since the wedding. She has no idea I know about her outbursts. Poor thing."
2. Chinyere tells us her guest used her wedding to promote his business:
"One of my husband's childhood friends is a party promoter. He took it upon himself to hand out flyers for his own upcoming party at our wedding—during the cocktail reception! He put flyers on all the tables. My planner had to go around and pick each one up. Like, WT…?"
3. Bola narrates how a guest stole bottles of wine at her wedding
"I have to say it was particularly perplexing and downright rude when one of our guests took a few bottles of alcohol from the bar at the end of our rehearsal dinner. Let's face it: Taking booze is way different than taking the flowers after big events because liquor isn't thrown away at the end of the night. Furthermore, the rehearsal dinner was at our family home, so we paid good money for those bottles and maybe, just maybe, we actually wanted to keep them for our own enjoyment. Can I get a witness?
4. Modupe says her BFF went behind to invite her boyfriend whom "I didn’t invite to my wedding"
"I had a longtime friend who was invited to the wedding. I had only met her boyfriend twice, so I didn't include him. My friend called and said she was mad that he didn't get invited. I told her my husband-to-be had never met him, she wasn't married and I didn't have the budget to add him. She then tried to navigate around me by asking my aunt if she could use her extra invite. She jumped through these hoops behind my back to get him a seat. She ended up coming to the wedding and not staying for the reception, and as revenge didn't invite me to her wedding. Ouch!"
