- A couple used the power of technology to solve their inability to travel down to Nigeria for their event, so the traditional ceremony held online
- In another report, a bride cried for joy when her brother who she had not seen for the past seven years came to her wedding unannounced
- Another couple got people talking about them as they used a motorcycle as their means of transport to their wedding venue
Wedding ceremonies are some of the best highlights of many people's lives, especially those who have been hoping to get life partners someday.
In a video that trended a few days, what was to be a wedding event became a reunion moment for a bride who got very emotional at the sight of her brother.
Legit.ng will be highlighting moments that made three wedding events memorable for couples and guests.

She never expected that the brother would come for the event. When she saw him, she screamed and left her husband-to-be standing.
It was such an emotional reunion for both of them as they were locked in a tight embrace, showing how much they had missed each other's presence.
2. Wedding via video streaming
A groom and bride could not come to Nigeria for their traditional wedding ceremony due to an undisclosed reason.
Leveraging the power of technology, they decided to go ahead with their plans to marry and still include their family members and friends.
Those in Nigeria gathered in a hall in their best clothes while the couple dressed up and held a single online wedding event.

3. Bride and groom on okada
A trending video showing a groom and his bride riding a motorcycle (okada) with a person that looks like the chief bridesmaid stirred reactions on TikTok.
Looking at the video, it seemed the lovers were on the way to their wedding ceremony and the bike was the transportation means they could afford. People saw their move as a show of true love.
Relationships over ceremonies
Organising a beautiful wedding does not guarantee a lasting relationship. If it is so, cases of divorce after grand marriage ceremonies will not happen. Investing in one's relationship and what comes after feeding guests and renting halls should be a priority.
Lady called off her wedding ceremony
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a media personality, Amanda Chisom, shared a screenshot of a lady's tweet who called off her marriage three days to the D-Day.
In the tweet, the lady said that her fiance was always telling her that his money was in a fixed deposit.
Despite the lady's numerous requests, the man said that he would refund whatever is spent on the wedding. She eventually called off the wedding on the advice of a marriage counsellor.
