We had to do a registry wedding because we are not doing a church wedding, since we opted for a destination wedding, though we have 2 officiating ministers following us outside Nigeria for the blessing.
Our experience at the registry was somewhat mixed. Getting married at the registry is not stressfull at all, though it is a mad cash cow out there, with everyone looking for ways to milk money out of you. At the end of the day, it was a success, and we thank God for that
Here are a few pictures from the event
I think soft colours look good on me.
After signing, the asked us to kiss. I turned away, and give my husgand my cheeks. Then the official stood up, and gave me serious lecture, lol. So I had no choice but to kiss him... slightly... for like half a nanosecond, loooooollll.
I got a fine boy, right?
So all I can do is glow.
Part 1 is done and dusted. So now, we await part 2, the big trad wedding coming up this weekend. I don't know how it will go, but all I know is this... I am going to dance like never before, lol.
Also, there's always the controvery about sex. When is it legitimate to start having sex with your husband?
- As soon as you are legally bound but the laws of the land?
- As soon as dowry has been paid traditionally, and family has given you away in the eyes of the public?
- As soon as you have exchanged vows in the sight of God?
This question is assuming that you are doing all three.
It is different if your court is this week, and the wedding is next week. What if your court and white wedding is like 6 months apart, lol?
