What Potential Brides Can Learn From Ghanaian Wedding Planner, Whitney Boakye’s Post on Wedding

Popular Ghanaian  event planner, Whitney Boakye-Mensah recently shared an open letter to potential brides warning them not to spend too much on the wedding or get lost in the need for an extravagant wedding.

The celebrity mum of three handsome boys and Peace FM Entertainment Review Show panel member, also urges brides to focus on the quality of the marriage and not the quantity of likes their wedding will get online, PeaceFMOnline.com reports.

Read her thoughts below:

My dear Brides to be, this is 2017, I promise you the following:

No, you will not die if you do not have pre and post wedding photo shoot. You will still have a wonderful wedding whether you have a bachelorette or not.

Do not compete with all that you see on social media, social media likes will not save a marriage, you work on it everyday.

Flee from pressure from frenemies who advise you to be like all you see on social media, when you owe and your name is tagged on social media, they will be the same who screenshoot to mock you with others.

Prepare for marriage not a wedding, a wedding is but a day, maximum 2 days.

Do not start your married life with debts from your wedding.

You do not need 15 bridesmaids, just because Miss a did does not mean you should, and stop giving your friends pressure with an escalated budget for attires and events to attend just to be a part of your bridal team, you have no idea what they say about you, you need blessing for a new life not frowns and sneers.

Your happiness does not depend on social media likes, happiness is an inside job. Marriage is a two way affair, do not be more concerned about your bridesmaids customized robes than your would be husband’s concerns.

You do not need to invite the entire world as a proof of a good wedding. Always have two good friends to count on, pray for and with you, you will need it.

Be prepared for frenemies. Get a trusted planner, delegate and have mad fun, it is your day.

Treat your bridal team with respect

Again, have fun!!
