Nigerian weddings have stopped being a ‘casual’ affair, as people now look for creative ways to distinguish themselves from what they see as the ‘norm’.
When Nigerians are not looking for the ‘perfect’ and ‘unique’ ideas for their pre-wedding photoshoots and their dream weddings, they are looking for other ways to make their weddings the ‘talk-of-the town’.
There is no doubt that Nigerians are creative, we love to make something out of nothing, and manage to find ways to turn serious situations into funny ones.

Below are some funny yet creative wedding invitations Nigerians have sent out to their guests:
1. The ‘proudly Nigerian’ passport:
How else can you share your love for your spouse and your country with the whole world, without being accused of loving one more than the other? The couple sure gave wedding invitations a patriotic twist.
2. The N500 note invitation:
How else will you prove that you ‘have arrived’ than to share the ‘money’ among your expected guests? This is sure going to leave people talking for a long time. Notice the ‘cash’ is laminated? So it’ll never get old…This N500 is ‘to have and to hold’ (just like wedding vows).
3. The movie clapboard:
This is how you reassure people who ‘ I didn’t lie when I said I was a movie star’. This one accurately shows the passion the ‘about-to-wed’ has for their profession.
4.The Whatsapp invitation:
This couple probably met via the chat app and decided to let their ‘history’ have a lasting memory on all their invited guests. They even went ahead to say “you’re obligated to attend our wedding otherwise you’ll be blocked on whatsapp.”
5. The video game CD/ track cover:
We are confused, is this the jacket for one of those PlayStation games or their album cover for their ‘new song’? Either way, this couple found a good way to remind their guests that they are in this together. Hope they shared free jerseys for their guests sha?
6.The credit card:
This couple want to show you that ‘money no be problem’ as their credit card will pay for ‘all you can eat‘ at the wedding. Their guests probably still carry this card around in their wallets. Just don’t mistakenly try to insert it into an ATM machine instead of your card.
7. The message in a bottle:
This couple may have tried to prove the ‘we survived storms together and were washed ashore, so we send you this message in a bottle’ to their invited guests. That wedding invitation probably collected sands from the different shores it touched before getting to the respective owners.
8. The movie poster
Wait! Why is she dragging him? Is it by force? LOL…anyway, the couple went to all this trouble to invite their guests and just so you know, if you are a guest and you got this IV and still did not show up, YOU SHALL BE DRAGGED LIKE THIS FROM YOUR HOUSE TO THE WEDDING VENUE.
9. The car number plate:
This couple na wa oo. They must really love to drive or did they meet in a taxi? Oh wait! They met at a mechanic’s workshop? Well, since we can’t tell for sure, their unique idea is sure going to leave their guests curious enough to attend and hear the ‘gist behind the gist’.
10. The family eager to give their daughter away:
Na wa o! Who did she offend and why are they so ‘excited’ to finally give their daughter out in marriage? Well, they asked all their guests to be ‘spider man’ (no loud noises around the bride, no sudden moves). The funniest part “We don’t want to give her an excuse to change her mind now, do we?”
11. The Hollywood blockbuster movie poster:
Did people queue up to get the IV to this million Dollar sorry wedding? Hope the couple are as ‘bad’ as the couple who first shot this movie? They both look great anyway and their guests must have had lots of fun at the “movie premiere”.
Anyway, who doesn’t love a good wedding? Which one did you like best?
