Of late, weddings have become a competition to the extent that people would go above and beyond to buy expensive things to please guests after which they're left with huge debts to start their married life with.

However, a yet-to-be-identified couple chose to cut their coat according to their cloth. Guests who attended the marriage event were served with gari, groundnut and soft drinks at the reception.

A video circulating on social media shows some guests gathered around the table and enjoying bowls of garri and groundnut while music plays in the background.

Twitter user, @jefe_says who posted the video on the microblogging site captioned it: “Couple serve garri and groundnut to guests.”

Meanwhile, in another news, a groom has warmed the hearts of many people after he carried the twin sister of his bride who has a disability to the wedding ground like a baby.

A lovely video shows the man walking to the venue of the marriage with the sister-in-law with special needs who was adorned with a wedding gown on her sister’s big day.

The bride, Morgan Watkins shared a video of the humbling moment on her TikTok page on October 5 and it went viral in no time.

“My twin sister who has special needs came down at my wedding with my fiancé, now who I call my husband.

“I wanted her to have her special moment as a bride like her twin sister. I will forever cherish this!

“Look at how her just looking around at everyone like she's on her throne this is why I fell in love with him bc he loves her as much as I do. #weddingtiktok #love #twins #marryme #lovestory #youarethereason #tiktok,” Morgan Watkins captioned the video.

Her post touched a certain Jessica Caudill who said: "As a mother who has daughters who will never get married this is so beautiful and selfless."

Then Morgan Watkins replied by explaining: "That is why I did it, she won't ever get married, she doesn't have interest in dating or anything but I just want her to have that special moment her sis got. I've dreamed of this since ever thinking about getting married!

"She's my girl. Where I go she goes & I always told myself I'll never be with a man who doesn't love her and accept her just like I do. Bless you, mama! Your girls are lucky to have you!"

Many users of the social media app have been awestruck by the groom’s gesture.
