Popular blogger reveals 9 interesting conditions you should meet before she contributes to your wedding
Terms and conditions apply.
Speaking about how she was "shamed" into contributing Sh1,000 by a couple, Wanja made it clear what she expected now that she had made such a significant investment with her precious money.
"...you take out your wallet again and look for the required amount, which you grudgingly give. As you're about to part ways, you congratulate them again and tell them you'll see them at the wedding. They tell you they intend to keep it a private, invite-only ceremony... but they will let you know. No. That wedding will be ours."
The couple in question had found Wanja unprepared when they asked for contributions where she had only had Sh200 to spare.
They then told her that they're only accepting contributions of only Sh1,000 and up.
After this, Wanja asserted that since the couple dictated the amount of money that should be contributed, she should also be allowed to have opinions about the wedding.
"The wedding will be ours."
Her conditions were very clear cut, "I am going to have a strong opinion concerning the flower arrangements and the bridesmaids' dresses and start heated debates on the choice of venue."
She also added the she will walk down the aisle with the couple, recite vows with them and then allow the couple to decide whose ring she should be allowed to wear first.
Wanja stated that she will pose with the inlaws and share her back story with the newlywed couple.
"You will let me have most of the dance floor during our ceremony," she continued.
The blogger also insisted on receiving the most well preserved piece of cake.
"If I have to fund your honeymoon, then you will have to take me along on that honeymoon trip."
But Wanja wasn't completely demanding. In a state of uncharacteristic pragmatism, she said that she would move in with the newlyweds, move into the master bedroom and allow them to take any other room.
"I will decide whether we are having DStv and Zuku," she concluded with a flourish.
Clearly couples who demand the amount of money to be contributed struck a sore spot.
If demands are made as to how much the general public should give, then it stands to reason that the people making the contribution become as heavily involved in the couples' lives.
