Britain's Biggest Bridezilla? Nigerian Lady Spends £70,000 On 5 Different Ceremonies & 13 Wedding Gowns

This Morning: Britain's biggest bridezilla had 13 wedding gowns
A newlywed Nigerian lady has been branded ‘Britain’s biggest bridezilla’ after holding five different wedding ceremonies during which she wore 13 dresses. Sanda Igwe told how two of her ceremonies were held in Nigeria (bottom right), at a cost of around £2,500 to each guest - one of whom had to take out a loan in order to attend. 

For her third big day she had an exotic beach wedding, but for the fourth, it was a simple registry office ceremony in Coventry (bottom left). Her last wedding was at Grovesnor House (left and right) where she had 13 bridesmaids. She said she felt no guilt about demanding so much of guests as they should want to be there at such a 'significant' time. 
Her first wedding took place in her father's home village in Nigeria, and her second was a huge party in a hotel in Lagos, costing guests £2,500 to attend.

But she doesn't feel guilty for making her loved ones fork out to attend her weddings, saying: 'If you care about somebody, you love them, then why would you not be there for such a significant day in their life? So I don't feel guilty.

Her fourth wedding was the most low key of them all as she had a ceremony at a registry office, but many of her guests to refused attend because they'd been to too many. Pictured: Sandra and her husband and daughter at their registry office ceremony in Coventry

'I would do the same, I have done the same so I think it's fine.'
She told how during the hotel party she kicked her guests off the dancefloor so they could watch her and her new husband dance all night, and she refused to let those who hadn't followed the strict blue and silver colour scheme pose for any of her wedding photos.
Her third wedding was on a beach and she argued with the videographer about the shots he was taking of them, expecting the waves of the sea to be in a perfect position in the background.
For her fourth wedding she had a much more low key ceremony in a registry office in Coventry, and was furious when many of her family and friends refused to attend because they'd been to so many of her celebrations already.

Her last big day was a lavish white wedding at Grosvenor House in London, for which she had 13 bridesmaids and two wedding gowns. 
She made her guests learn an elaborate dance routine for the reception, which they ultimately did not perform it because the bride turned up four hours late.
Mrs Igwe says she is thrilled with how her weddings turned out, saying: 'Honestly they were everything I've ever imagined. Before I met my husband I told my friends I'm going to get married in Nigeria in December and I did it. Everything I wanted happened.'
She claimed she has made up with most of the friends and family she fell out with over her bridezilla actions, but refused to say how many she hadn't reconciled with.
Her story was slammed by This Morning viewers on Twitter (pictured), with some calling her 'greedy' and 'vacuous'

Her story was criticised by This Morning viewers, with one tweeting: 'Britain's biggest bridezilla what's wrong with wanting a simple wedding these days.'
'Bridezilla.. Her husband needs a medal...' another posted.
A third posted: 'Wow! Really glad I'm not friends with Bridezilla. It's not the money I'd have to spend it's that she's vile !'
'Just greed and vulgar,' another wrote.

Can anyone experience explain to me the utter fixation with marriage and "dream weddings", my partner and I have been together 30 years, have a wonderful family and are very happy. Never seen the need to get married so to speak, in fact I'd go so far as to say traditional marriage is a bit old fashioned and unnecessary these days. It is also very patriarchal and stereotypical in much of its details.

Any man who marries a woman like this deserves what he gets .... if you don't heed the warning signs ... don't come back complaining later on ...

I am married, just coming up to 36 years and still pretty happy - so nothing against marriage. But I find it unutterably sad that any young woman/girl invests time in planning for, and dreaming of, some mythical fairytale wedding that might never happen. Have they really got nothing else to plan for and aspire to in their young lives?
