SUMMARY

Through his Twitter page, Mwangi narrated how his friend planned a low-budget wedding that had ‘everything.’

He went ahead to break down the costs as an eye-opener to his followers who believe wedding budgets should be over the roof.

In an ideal situation, a wedding ought to be a once in a lifetime event and that probably explains why couples pump in thousands or even millions to make it successful.

You have probably been added to groups where members are given targets to ensure the wedding stands out.

I do not agree with such. I think one of the greatest decisions you will ever make is to live within your means.

Activist Boniface Mwangi on Tuesday shared details of his friend’s wedding that cost Sh47,000.

Through his Twitter page, Mwangi narrated how his friend planned a low-budget wedding that had ‘everything.’
