Wedding Checklist for the Nigerian Wedding


wedding checklist

This Wedding checklist has been designed to ease the stress that comes with planning Nigerian Weddings. It breaks down the most essential tasks you will need to complete based on a 12 month engagement period. Unlike any other wedding checklist that exists, this one includes Traditional Wedding tasks as well. Keep in mind that this is meant only as a general guideline. There will surely be additional steps unique to your wedding. Don’t forget to create daily and weekly lists. This will make larger tasks on this wedding checklist more manageable. Make sure you delegate appropriate tasks to the relevant friends and family members.

10-12 months to the wedding

  • Congratulations on your engagement! The first step will be to announce this to all relevant parties. Be sure to go out of your way to personally inform people who may be offended if they hear the news indirectly from other sources e.g fussy aunties and long lost best friends across the continent.
  • Share this wedding checklist with all friends and family members helping you plan the wedding.
  • Select a wedding date. The traditional Nigerian wedding ceremony will be held anytime from the same day as the white wedding ceremony, to a few months before.
  • Start a wedding file or folder to keep records of all contracts, vendor quotes and wedding documents.
  • Choose a date for your Introduction, where you are officially introduced to your new family for the first time. This is the first part of most traditional wedding ceremonies.
  • Discuss a wedding budget and how expenses and duties will be shared between the two families.
  • Draft a preliminary guest list to get an estimate of guest numbers. Request lists from both sets of parents. Doing so as soon as possible will prevent you from searching for inadequate venues, and giving vendors wrong quotes.
  • Select bridal party members and inform them.
  • Choose the church/mosque ceremony location and confirm date and availability with the leaders.
  • Decide on whether you would like to hire a wedding planner and book one if necessary.
  • Start hunting for the wedding reception venue and secure this as soon as possible.
  • Select your wedding theme and wedding colour schemes, including aso ebi colours and wedding reception colours. Browse our Wedding Photo Gallery for inspiration.
  • Start researching wedding dress ideas. It’s never too early as some custom gowns take up to 5-8 months to prepare, and alterations and multiple dress fittings eat up extra time.
  • Search for bridal hairstyle and make-up inspiration.
  • Visit fabric vendors to choose your Introduction outfit. Start thinking of wedding day aso-ebi ideas as well.
  • Select and secure a Wedding Photographer for both the white and traditional weddings.
  • Select and secure a Wedding Videographer for both the white and traditional weddings.
  • Start researching and booking other wedding vendors, especially those who handle one wedding per day.
  • Start Honeymoon planning to get the best flight and hotel rates.

7- 9 months to the wedding

  • Buy your Wedding Dress. The earlier the better.
  • Finalize the Guest List, compile addresses and send out save the dates.
  • Choose aso-ebi for family members, friends and guests attending the white wedding and traditional wedding.
  • Choose the bride and groom’s attire(s) for the traditional wedding.
  • Take engagement photos to be displayed at your wedding, on your wedding website, and party souvenirs.
  • Research and secure a Makeup Artist for both weddings.
  • Research and secure a Hair Stylist for both weddings if two different people will be handling your makeup and hair.
  • Book the Master of Ceremonies (MC) for your reception.
  • Select a Band for the reception for both weddings.
  • Select a DJ for the wedding reception.
  • Book any other musician/entertainment.
  • Choose a Caterer for both weddings and decide on menu.
  • Choose an Event Decorator and florist that best suits your requirements.
  • Order your English and Traditional Wedding Cakes.
  • Create a wedding website to share details of your wedding with friends, family and other guests.
  • Finalize Honeymoon details and make necessary reservations.

4-6 Months Before

  • Finalize and present traditional wedding list (engagement list) to grooms family.
  • Order your wedding invitations, thank your cards, programs and other personalized stationery. This isn’t done too early to allow for changes in venues or dates.
  • Choose your white wedding hair accessories.
  • Buy your white wedding shoes, purse and jewelry (earrings, chains and bracelets).
  • Schedule hair and makeup trial appointments and ensure that hair accessories and hair style are complementary.
  • Choose a second wedding dress if you will be wearing two.
  • Choose the Groom and Groomsmen attires and ties.
  • Choose the Wedding Bouquet and Boutonnieres.
  • Buy and inform your bridesmaids’ of the gown you have chosen. Take varying body shapes into consideration.
  • Buy your Traditional wedding shoes and bag.
  • Buy your Traditional wedding jewelry (beads) and other accessories.
  • Buy the Wedding Rings. Account for time needed for engraving and additional sizing if necessary.
  • Discuss Rehearsal Dinner: Who will be hosting? Venue?
  • Order Rental Equipment: eg. marquee, tables, chairs etc.

2-3 Months Before

  • Start Buying items on the traditional wedding list (engagement list only relevant to the grooms family).
  • Choose Bridesmaids accessories.
  • Book wedding night accommodation.
  • Book Transportation for couple, family and wedding party.
  • Send out wedding invitations, aso-ebi and gifts for the aso-ebi purchasers.
  • Begin personal shopping for clothes needed for pre-wedding parties or honeymoon.
  • Begin organising transportation and accommodation for out of town guests and the wedding party.
  • Schedule a wedding rehearsal and notify everyone involved.
  • Inform DJ on Father/ Daughter song, First dance song, specific processional music and any other *Must play* songs.

1 Month Before             

  • Ensure bridal party receive their dresses, other accessories and tuxedos.
  • Discuss and confirm bachelorette party.
  • Write vows if you choose to personalize them.
  • Buy Wedding undergarments.
  • Confirm all details including location, date and time with all vendors.
  • Confirm all details including location, date and time with all vendors.
  • Organise car decorations.
  • Schedule a final dress fitting, and make sure you are wearing shoes this time. You should also have a bridesmaid there to learn how to bustle your train and fasten your buttons.

2 Weeks Before

  • Check the weather for your wedding day.
  • Confirm your total wedding look – ensure you have all necessary accessories for you and your bridal party.
  • Finish personal shopping.
  • Finalise honeymoon plans.
  • Plan bridesmaids’ luncheon.
  • Purchase gifts for your bridal party.
  • Go for final beauty treatments: spa, facial, wax. This is not the best time to experiment.
  • Create a seating chart and finalize seating arrangements. This is quite difficult to enforce, so at the very least, place cards designating some tables to important family members, friends and colleagues should be visibly positioned.

1 Week Before

  • Confirm final guest count and inform caterer and reception venue.
  • Have final consultation with all vendors.
  • Pack an “emergency kit” for the wedding day which may include: safety pins, tissues, cosmetics, hairspray, needle and cotton, headache pills, and mints .
  • Confirm honeymoon bookings and have ready all necessary documentation: tickets, passports, traveller’s cheques, etc.
  • Pack for honeymoon.
  • Rehearse the church ceremony with the ministers. Rehearse the wedding reception with your wedding party.
  • Arrange with your reception to have a table available for last minute gifts. Ask family members to move gifts home after wedding.
  • Sit down and organise the actual wedding day into some sort of time schedule. Provide the wedding party with the schedule.
  • Break into your shoes! Wear your wedding shoes around the house and on the same kind of floor you’d have in the wedding, until they are comfortable.
  • Ensure that all vendor payment deadlines are met.
  • Practise your dance moves. Don’t carry last on your special day.

The Day Before               

  • Confirm that all members of the wedding party are organised and well prepared.
  • Appoint your official *Cash Collectors*.
  • Have a massage, manicure and pedicure and relax.
  • Complete your evening skin routine so that your skin is moist for your wedding day make-up.
  • Relax!
  • Get to bed early!

On the Day

  • Eat a good breakfast.
  • Review your on the day wedding schedule.
  • Relax and pamper yourself.
  • Be at the ceremony at least five minutes early.
  • Smile and enjoy – this is your special day !
  • Party Hard! Komole, Azonto,….etc!

After the Day

  • Send out thank you emails, write thank you notes and make thank you calls. An 8-week period of grace is the norm.
  • Ensure all vendors have been fully paid.

Although this wedding checklist has been designed for a 12 month engagement, we understand that not all last that long, so all wedding planning activities mentioned in the wedding checklist above will be carried out in a much shorter time period. Also, hiring a wedding planner (recommended) will considerably reduce your workload as they will be handling many of the tasks on your behalf. If you are looking for more wedding planning information and lists, then check out our wedding resource page. Please like, tweet or pin this Nigerian Wedding Checklist if you think others may find it useful.

Good Luck and Congratulations!

    • Thanks for your comment and kind words Tosin. Wow, two months – you don’t have much time to plan oh, but it’s not impossible. Where in Nigeria are you based? Even though the list is based on a 12 month engagement period, you can condense everything into a much shorter time frame, but you will need a whole lot of support from friends and family, and your husband as well. Feel free to email me – info [at] and I’ll see what I can help out with.

    yaaaaaaaaaay!!! i found dis website @ d right tym my wedding’s jst in 12months tym so all i ave 2 do is to follow dis plan m xo happy rite nw……. may God increase ur wisdom nd ease everitin dat concerns u…..

  11. Well done Seyi. Nice piece you did up there. It’s obvious you are talented and really know bout planning weddings. I am not a new bride, been married for over 10yrs now but we are just planning our traditional wedding as we’ve not done it.
    I didn’t even know where to start from till I read your piece. Bless you so much.
    What do you think of Orange and Mint green? Smiling….. I should pay for that right?

    • Hi Olubunmi…yes oh, please you can pay me, but my currency is social media shares….lol

      Wow, it must be exciting to finally have the wedding after so long. I can’t imagine how much fun it’s going to be!

      So the mint green and orange, is this for your trad outfit or general colours including decor? I wouldn’t recommend it for decor/asoebi as they are tricky (not the safest) colours which when overused individually or together could look tacky/graish.

      If it’s for your Iro and Buba, then yes, orange and green is good. My first choice of green with orange would not be mint though. I think a darker less pastel shade of green with burnt orange would be better as seen on Nabila here –

      You can find more yoruba brides for inspiration in our gallery –

      Let me know if you have any more questions.

  12. Thanks dear, u reali relieved me of so much. D rush, headaches n stress. I didn’t jst knw how to comply my list. Thank God I still hv abt 9mnths left. Thanks dear, am so grateful

  13. Many Thanks!!! I find this very helpful

  14. Ok, one mor thing please.
    My trad is just @ months away and i cant even wrap my head around what color to combine with my Orange 🙁
    I’m thinking Coffee buhhhhh………. Pls help the needy. lol

    • Hello Oge….Orange is the happening colour of the year. Coffee is good and very safe. Other options are Gold and Green (risky but very colorful and bright – for the bold bride), Cream, Champagne, Burnt Orange, and even Red!. Have you seen our photo gallery and other posts on traditional wedding attires? Lots of orange inspiration there…:-)

  15. Charles edim says:

    • Hello Joy! You actually do not need a wedding planner. June is still a while away. Make sure you involve as many willing friends and family members as possible. Also use vendors whose who have been referred and have good feedback from the couples they worked with.

  22. I lvd ds so much,continue d gud wrk

  29. Thanks Sayo. Nice checklist. I have 6months to plan though. Just need to put all my ideas together.
    I need a favor though. Am working on my invitation cards with bibi invites and I need pictures of an ijaw bride and groom from delta state so she can make me a good design. Any ideas please?

    • Hi Stacy….Bibi Invites are so creative! Have you seen this post on Beauty and Felix’s wedding? They are an Ijaw couple from Bayelsa state. I don’t know if that would work for you.

      • Hi, thanks Sayo. I looked at the pics but the men in my place actually tie wrapper. But since its gonna be an inter cultural traditional marriage, we decided to wear the Yoruba attire of my husband to be. Spam also making the cards like that.
        Please keep the good work. Thanks again

  36. Ajasa Abiola says:

    This ȋ̝̊̅§ very helpful, I must commend ur effort, tho’ I’ve been following ur page for a while now, didn’t realze it contained a check-list, ♍♈ wedding ȋ̝̊̅§ four months away, and d colours still confuse ♍ε̲̣̣̣̥ a lot, I’ve settled for peach and purple for ♍♈ traditiional wedding but I need ur help on ♍♈ gazebo decorations, pls come to ♍♈ rescue…fnks Sayo, God bless U̶̲̥̅̊ gidi gan ni o

    • Sayo C. says:

      Hi Abiola,

      The beauty of Traditional Weddings is the flexibility when it comes to colours. Unlike white weddings where many things are super-coordinated, traditional weddings incorporate certain aspects of our culture i.e, chairs and decor made from bamboo, raffia or wood. So feel free to think outside the box. There is no pressure to use specific colours for your Gazebo. I would advise you to go for something neutral and then lightly decorate it with whatever colour you have chosen for your decor.

  37. Serah says:

    Hiiii, you have no idea how helpful this piece is! I’m getting married in July and this has been beyond helpful. I just started taking notes like a court stenographer. I’m nearly overwhelmed since I have just Saturdays to go around but I guess it’s time for division of labour!
    I chose rose red & champagne for white & blue & peach colours for the traditional…I hope it comes out looking good.
    God bless you!

    • Hey Serah! Is that this July or next July? Either ways, I’m glad you found this helpful! Yes, division of Labour is key, and those colours sound fab to me…Congratulations and all the very best with the wedding!

  38. nonye says:

    Good one. My white wedding will be coming up in October by God ‘s grace . Pls how do I reschedule this 12 months method to fit in as its just 5 months away. Will be very grateful if u can help me out. Thank you.

  39. Keep up d good work,and may God continue to prosper you. my wedding is coming up oct/nov this year and I would like to work with this check list,I pray God help me. Also I’m using 2 different colours for d engagement and reception. my fiance said he wants GTB colour for our wedding,which I don’t think I like,and I av chosen mint green,coral and Gold for the white wedding pls what do you think about these two colours,cos I dont know how to work with d colours. thanks a bunch,pls I waiting for your reply

    • Hello Busayo, Congrats on your upcoming wedding. The colour options for both your white and trad wedding are both good. How you work with then will depend on your preferences. Thanks

  40. Augusta O. says:

    Hi Busayo,
    please what is the happening color of the year as. My wedding is coming up first week of November this year so happy I came across this your page today. please I need colour (s)that will go with wine colour for my wedding. someone suggested wine, silver and cream how do you see that.

  41. oluwaranti says:

    hello sayo, kip up the gud work. im planning my friend’s wedding, she is in the far away north, but will be coming down southwest a month to the wedding. the wedding is in november. her colours are light blu, pink(baby or fusial), n ash. pls could u help with how to organise the bridemaides dresses, groomsmen,groom n bride, thee colours they should use for the engagement n wedding, then she requested that her train would have aso ebi for the engament. pls ur suggestions, will help a great deal. eku ise o

  42. oluwaranti says:

    Pls i also need advice on the aso oke n lace to buy

  43. Ola O. says:

    Hiiiiii. I just need someone on the planet to know that I’M PANICKING, no be small.

    We’ve set our date for November this year, I live in London and we’re getting married in Akure, by His grace. As for vendors, all my google searches yield Lagos results which is soooooooooooooo annoying. Nigeria is such a massive country, why does everything still have to revolve around Lagos, even in this day and age!

    It feels like I have so much to do, but I can’t muster the mental energy to do it 🙁 This checklist has really helped, but the guest number remains the great unknown and I don’t want to flop by booking a venue that’s too big or too small.

    Could people help me out with the following qs:
    1. for the Yoruba native, do the “ore iyawo” wear the same colour as the guests, the couple, or something totally different?
    2. for the church service, so the bridesmaids dresses match the colour of the aso-ebi for the guests?
    3. is it still “the done thing” for the couple to change to native during the reception, or do we wear the same thing all day?
    4. do you know any decent vendors/photographers in/around Ondo state, specifically Akure. I no wan pay transport moni 4 pesin wey come from Lagos on top of everything else again jor 😉

    Thank you for letting me let it all out

  54. Sayo I stumbled on this website by mistake but I thank God I found it…. You are really Godsend . My traditional wedding is in November and my color is yellow but I don’t know what other color I should combine with it being a loud color. My groom is not helping matters cos he doesn’t have any specific color so he left the choosing of colors to me.

  55. Sunshine says:


    I live in London but i am having my traditional wedding in Imo state in October 2014. Planning from miles away does have its challenges but with the right help i know it can be as easy as taking a walk in the park 🙂 Please do you know of very good make up artist, photographer and decorator around Imo state as most of those I have come across online are based in Lagos and do command a hugh fee for travelling out of Lagos.

    Thank you for your help.

  56. Sayo you are really Godsend. My traditional wedding is in Nov and my colour is yellow. But I am lost on the colour I can combine with it that will be nice. My fiancée isn’t particular about any colour. He’s left the colours choice to me. Please help a sister out. Merci

      Could you please shed more light on what exactly you are interested in. Here at wedding feferity, our services are limited to sharing wedding planning information on the blog and selling wedding stationery here in our store

      Please provide more info…x

  58. wow.. just found what i used d larger part of yesterday searching for.a very helpful blog and luckily for me my wedding is in 7months time so i can stilli incoporate this ideas into my planning. thank u for the information.

  59. I love all ur post. its wow so nice.
    pls my traditional wedding will
    coming up very soon and I need ur
    advice pls . My fiancé is from a
    royal family and I read a comment
    of urs dat says a royal wedding
    without Gold is incomplete . I love
    blue pls can blue go along with
    gold. and pls be precise about d
    type of blue. Tanx

    • Hello Serah,

      Most royal weddings do have Gold in them, but there is no hard and fast rule. Yes, Blue definately work with gold. When I say royal wedding, I mean a Royal themed wedding, as opposed to a wedding thrown by people who have a royal background. In your case, there are no restrictions per say because you can pair up any colours you want depending on your preferences. But if you would rather go with a royal themed wedding, then make sure the blue is of a deep shade, as opposed to a light shade

  60. Fantastic work. I’m so happy I found dis. My wedding is November, but I’m being nervous,i don’t know why. Please I need your advice. Can I go for blue and grey? May God bless u more. Thank you.

    to wedding planning is bespoke: we do not offer packages or try to shoe-horn you into an existing service.
    We will ensure we offer venues and suppliers that reflect the type of celebration you require and within your budget. Once the venue is secured we will together fill in the details: from
    the ceremony and reception design, flowers,stationery, food and photography, to your
    wedding day attire, entertainment, the cake,
    transport and the honeymoon. We can arrange a personalised wedding website, introductions to
    stylists and make-up artists, assistance with
    guest accommodation and a full concierge
    service for you and your guests.

  68. Hi Sayo,

    Thank you so much for this piece. It has been very helpful. I’m getting married in two weeks(Traditional), and I’m glad to say you have greatly assisted me in dotting all my i’s and crossing all my t’s. I especially loved the part about practicing dance moves before the day; I thought I was silly for considering doing that! Lol. I also like being reminded to check out the weather for the wedding day. I can’t believe I completely forgot to think of that.

    Thank you.
