As children get other, they break away from their parents and go on pretending that they can take on the big, bad world by themselves.

However, a wedding is one of those things you just need your parents for, especially, your mother, because there are some areas where only mother really does know best.

The following are five areas you absolutely need her help.

  1. Etiquette- This, especially in a country like Nigeria where there are so many traditions, is why you need your mother. Although, your day is about you, you also need to consider the laid down rules.

  2. Vendors- Your mother has probably had events, thus she has some experience in hiring professionals, and probably has people on her list who she can get for you to use at a reduced price.

  3. Music- You have to get your mother's opinion for this because left to your own devices, you will choose music for only the younger set. Your mother will be able to advice you on what kind of music to pick for some of your older guests.

  4. Budget- In this area, your mother will be of great help because she will be able to help you to prioritize what is important for the day and what you can skip in order to save. Besides, as a mother and wife, she has had lots of experience when it comes to making and sticking to a budget.

  5. Staying Calm-  Your mother has had experience handling all the frustrations, stress, and nerves that comes with weddings, therefore, she will be excellent for this area.
