Destination Weddings: Do you say ‘I do’?

Destination wedding are gaining in popularity in Nigeria.  I’m not sure why destination weddings are popular in other parts of the world but in Nigeria, I think a big part of it is that Nigerians love to show off.  Nigerians love the biggest, the most wanted and the most expensive.  Destination weddings fit right into the Nigerian ‘personality’.  A destination wedding (outside the country, obviously) says several things at once:

  1. I am unique (or at least, more unique than you)
  2. I have lots of money and
  3. This party is for a select few and you are not one of them.

Popular choices for destination weddings at the moment include The Gambia  and Dubai .  Extra points of course go to weddings held outside Africa.  If you pay the airfare for all your guests, you have practically won the game.
