Wedding Planners in Ghana

And before you start thinking of agencies that will reap you off, take time and go through your contacts list on your phone. Do you remember your aunt who was crazy about organizing an end of year party? What about your sister who just had a wedding? What about that loud mouthed friend of yours who always chirps ideas on some amazing wedding plan? The idea here is to save on the costs of hiring a professional wedding planner who will probably do the same job as the contacts on your phone. You can also put a team of the selected friends and families together and hand them a budget estimate. Remember, they are your family, and they can try and work with anything you’ve got.
You are probably thinking, “What type of dress will I wear on the wedding day?” Well, it doesn’t have to be the expensive one you saw while window shopping. What about the dress your mother wore to her wedding? Oh, you are thinking that it is outdated and out-fashioned, right?. Well, it is not always the case. You can take it to the tailor and have more embroidery added, with the latest Ghanaian wedding dress styles and stitches to cover up the patches. In a matter of hours, it would be looking brand new. You can also choose to hire a Ghanaian weddings gown for the D-day. There are many businesses in Ghana that hire out some of the wedding gowns to the couple to complete their dreams. It is cost efficient and you can rent it out for a couple of hours before you jump into that sexy dress as you head for the honeymoon. You can choose from a wide array of different traditional Ghanaian wedding gowns that suit and blend in with your persona. With a good bargaining power, you can land on a good deal.
Wedding Guest Dresses

Also guests that made the list can also be advised before the wedding to pick out outfits that go with the theme.
