this is by far the best comment so far, GOD bless you and i wish nigerian women have this mindset,i have told my gf that i am either buying the gown i feel is reasonably priced,or she can go pay for the vera wang and whatever out of her own pocket.

the funny thing is that an ugly girl will not look more beautiful with a 500 pounds wedding gown so i wonder what the whole fuss is about,alsdo i think most of the girls mouthing off here are not married hence still living in the make believe world of marrying tall dark handsome and rish who ll give them a fairy tale jordan and peter andre styl;e wedding

I think Nigerians, especially our women, love to live above their means, my friend rented a wedding gown from one of the shops in Ikeja two months ago for N20,000 (for 3 days) and she was absolutely gorgeous on her wedding day, she lives in Abuja, they even made airport arrangements for the sending and returning of the gown to lagos. If you cannot afford an expensive brand new gown, hire one, they are properly dry-cleaned after use, its no big deal, they are practically worthless after the wedding, your kids wont even wear them cos it wont be trendy in their time. I know many brides who now want to sell their gowns but no one is interested or the price they want to pay is ridiculous. I am hiring one for my wedding and I don't see anything wrong with that, no one is even gonna know unless you tell them, besides there are other things to use money for, I agree you hair + accessories + make up is what really brings out the beauty, hmmm, make-up, that's a story for another day, those make-up artists are just rip-offs, please 100k for make-up on trad and wedding day just for the bride, I just think Nigerians like to show off by buying expensive stuff and telling their friends that their wedding gown was vera wang and it cost 5000dollars and Tara did her make up for 100k and her accessories were from american swiss, please spare me!

Ice- Angel,

Be a little more considerate when you give people advice. A wedding dress does not the happiest day of your life make. She will have another happiest day, the day she has her first child. and she will probably be wearing a blood stained hospital gown if not just a tattered night gown, to meet someone just coming to this earth. Ice-angel are you married? do you have kids? I went to a lady's wedding sometime ago, Her dress was a Vera Wang that means nothing less than 5,000 dollars. she said she invited 500 people. at the reception there were less than 50 people there and so many empty seats and tables. Do you think if she knew, she wouldnt have worn a borrowed dress just to have people celebrate with her.

Dont give people quixotic advice like that. . there is a reason America is in its worst recession since the great depression,, people spent more money than they had/could afford. you dont want to spend so much money on a wedding dress and you and your husband begin to fight over money during your honeymoon.

it depends on your pocket, but now after getting married, I wish I had enough common sense to have bought a cheaper dress. Mine cost over 1500 dollars and I know people who bought 5000dollar dresses. the reason being that I have never really seen a bride who looked better than another. I think women should consider borrowing dresses. but I know no one will listen to me as far as borrowing. the best way to look beautiful on your wedding day is by preventing yourself from having someone bad do your make-up. have a nice hairstyle and you dont even have to wear expensive shoes, just buy nice white or silver ones or even black ones. One of the best bridal looks i ever saw was when the bride wore navy blue shoes. If I could redo my wedding the only thing I would spend more than 500 dollars on would be the reception hall. the wedding bussiness thing in america felt like a scam after I married. cos I felt I spent so much money on things that I neednt have.

Depends on ur budget, if u can afford it. . .why not

It all boils down to coating ur coat according to ur size

Wedding gown speaks volumes of ur personality on that day

What is all these buhaha about. 75k is too much or not too much depends on

1. Quality of gown

2. What sentiments are attached to wearing/owning your own wedding gown/ your mentality about buying an item for a one day wear ( mind u fit wear am on

your 25th if u don't go off and plumpy)

3. Your TASTE/CLASS

5 yrs a go I got my wife her gown 50K. I no shout, even though I toured the entire Lagos and was forced to know virtually every bridal store from cheap a to GBAM.

So the issue of much or not much should be laid to rest.

You either want it, it's got class, beautiful and makes the bride extra sexy and wedding outin posh or u leave am.

If u want it cheap try cut and sow or Benkol in Yaba

Want more expensive stuff try Dannies Bridal. If you think these are all too expensive go buy am direct from US.

I don't think the issue is the money. I think it all depends on the type of gown you want to wear. Do you want to wear a designer gown or a Taylor lo ran design (which is not also bad as I have seen beautiful ones made by them). If you plan well the cost of the gown can even be much higher than that. Do not also forget that the so called expensive gown might be given as a gift.

depends on the couple to be. If you actually do your research, you can end up with Dresses that are not that much, or there about. you have to consider your finances too, becos dats what you'll fall back on after the wedding. personally my guy was a lot more than that, not because of anything other than where i reside. that's how much it goes for around here for something nice and to look good in.

At damisbridal's we do have alot of wedding dresses that range from 65k and up, and come directly from the States.

for any inquiry send to damisbridal@yahoo.com

thanks, and we'll forward you tons of dresses within your price range.

A #75,000 wedding gown? that's cheap! why's everybody shyin away from sayin just that? I'm actually yet to see one that goes for less than #100,000 (not that i've done any serious searching anywayz). I'm all for people stayin within the confines of their income but a #75,000 wedding gown is definitely not expensive.

Personally if my Guy would want a new Gown for me, I would readily buy it. He makes a fuss of little things like that.

As for me, i would gladly look for a very beautiful and lovely wedding gown and rent. Renting gives much more variety. If you have to make it yourself, they may not get what i want. And why buy something i wouldnt use again when i could use it and return and have some space for other things.

I dont mind how much i am going to pay for the rent, it could even be as much as a new one but i dont mind provided its gorgeous, lovely, beautiful, elegant, adorable and classy.

what if her momma didnt have a gown? Mine didnt. She did court wedding and traditional so there's no "gown" to inherit

and some dresses are classically styled that anyone can wea it again no matter the era. afterall in some families, wedding rings are passed down from generation but they are usually unique and worth alot.

well, is not everyday that a gal walks into a room and everbody will be like whoooooooooo she is beautiful! snice the gal is going to be the center of attraction, i think she deserve all the gud things she can. #75k on a wedding gown is not too much if the money is there, i mean is not eveyday that one gets to wear a #75k  gown.

I have seen couples like that too.

There was one that got married around my neighbourhood (in Naija). His wedding was very posh and he invited almost everybody that lived in the neighborhood. A few months after the wedding , the woman was heavy with pregnancy. But she still has to go to the market to buy stuff to cook dinner for hussy. If u see the woman pushing her belly and walking thru the market, U would really respect women. I dont know what happened, but one day she fainted in the market. She could not bear the hot sun.

It got me thinking. Wouldn't it be better if the man had an ok wedding and used the remainder of the money to buy a car for his wife? That would have saved the woman a whole lot of trouble.

I know of some couples that spent their life savings just because they wanted to impress on their wedding day and immediately after the wedding there was nothing to fall back on. Maybe the lesson should be buy your gown according to your purse and not because it is the Most Important day.

I did not say it is not important but not necessarily that you buy a gown of N75k just for the purpose.

Good. I wonder why she did not go get her momma's gown instead of investing in a new gown.

By the time the daughter of the bride is old enuff to wear the apparel wont it be out of fashion or out of date or sumnin'. Women's fashion tends to be very dynamic.

Well if everything went according to plan, u are suppposed to get married before u concieve not to talk of giving birth. Getting married is the spark that sets of these chain reaction opf things. Maybe thats why women see it as thier most important day.

However, one wont go breaking the bank in investing in stuff that wont even be of use the very next day. I believe U should only spend what U think u can afford to lose on a wedding ress. So maybe it is an individual thingy. How much can U afford to lose?

And after the wedding day what becomes of the gown? Will you continue to wear it everyday or take it to the museum? Waste of money.
