Nigerian Couple Indicate”No Reception” On Wedding Card
A Nigerian couple recently became the topic of discussion across several social media platforms after a photo of their wedding invitation surfaced on the internet. It is a common tradition for wedding ceremonies in this part of the world to often start off from a religious setting to a more relaxed environment where friends and well wishers will come together to eat and drink in joy of the day.
However, for a Nigerian man identified as Adewale Yussuf and his bride Blessing Ijeoma, the case was completely different from what many of their friends may have been looking forward to. The couple boldly pointed out that there would be no reception for their matrimonial ceremony after the church activities have been concluded.
However, the friends of the couple refused to let this happen as they made a surprise wedding reception for them all.

My wife and I had decided to not have a reception party after our wedding. Just church service, nothing big. But, on the day of the event after we had taken our pictures, I was tricked to the office by my mentors and to my surprise my team and friends had planned a surprise reception party for us. I have never been that surprised in my entire life. I was so shocked, that it took me hours to recover fully. One of the most heartwarming thing was that the team members who have moved on from the company, contributed towards the reception, as well. I believe in team spirit and that action reinforced my belief. Thank you #Techpointers Decor: @ifloraevent 📸 : @mediapointng
