She Wanted A Very Private Wedding But It Was Impossible To Ignore Family And Friends

   

We can totally relate to Mariam Bakare desire to have a very private wedding but couldn’t because of the many family members and friends that cannot be ignored.

A very private person, Mariam had her wedding few days ago and her plan was to have her parents and the groom’s parents with three friends each but considering the many people who have impacted her life in different ways, she had to let down her guard.

Her story is so relatable. Read it below

If I were to chose, I would have loved to have my wedding on the days where there was no social media, because I’m so private to the point where I honestly don’t know certain things about my self 😭but we have made lifetime friends via this platform and it’s only right that we do right by them by sharing our happy moments with them because that’s what friends do.

We originally wanted to have our wedding during the month of Ramadan on a Monday on the Island with just our parents and 3 friends each, because we believe that being private cuts away as much negativity as possible and I also believe that evil eye is real (call me old school dun care 🚶🏻‍♀️) .

Lol but that was a battle we couldn’t win, what would happen to all the aunties that used to send me money when I was broke? The neighbor that had to baby sit me and change my diaper when my mum was not home, My favorite cousins that used to help me eat my Eba when I was young so that I would not get into trouble for not finishing my food? The friends that we read for exams together and I passed because of them ? The friends that helped me submit assignment when I couldn’t go to class for one reason or the other? The aunties that always give me their baff ups so I could slay at events? The aunties that used to take me to birthday parties when I was young? The aunty that bought me my first body spray and diary? .

How were they supposed to miss my big day? It took a long time for me to accept that they were supposed to share this joyous day with us but by the time I did, it was already too late for me to properly plan a wedding, so we started doing wuru wuru.

Initially I wanted every vendor to be a family member or a friend or at least someone I knew but I had to mix old and new all together.

Now let’s start with @tmtbylayinka I called her last week at about 9 pm to book a slot, when she said she would be available I screamed for joy, fast forward to today, she kept to time! And she was too pleasant, I had a surprise in the middle of the make up and used tears to almost scatter the whole thing but she was just there smiling, like as if she was already expecting it, TBC…..

    Sincerely having a private wedding is the best. You journey with little people. There will be less of monitoring spirit

    You people dont read stories before u judge. Biko the headline has said it all.. She wanted something low and very private but she couldn’t because a lot of people were part of her lives and they were there for her when she needed them… You all should know that interviews will definitely go viral… Beautiful bride I can relate with your story jare.. May God bless your new home with lots of goodies. Amen
