Advertisements

The traditional wedding day look has always been a big deal but for the past couple of years it has become a bigger deal as brides to be become bridezilla’s tearing away anybody that is in their way of looking absolutely breath taking on their traditional wedding since of cause that’s the day the community knows the stuff she’s made of and that’s the day she proudly show cases her style.

Another thing you would sport this days are inter tribal mix when it comes to clothing and accessories. Their trimmings this days incorporate styles from different cultures around the country. As a true supporter of cultural heritage this mix of two culture’s is not only appealing but fascinating. This mix happens mainly when there is an inter tribal marriage but sometimes brides just decide to incorporate one or two style from other cultures.

Now another thing about traditional marriage that is different is the event decorations, they have taken quite a different turn compared to how they used to be years before. Although a lot of traditional trimmings are still incorporated into the venue decoration there are lot more modern placement around.

Even food has taken a different turn because now cakes have been incorporated into the wedding food menu, although the cakes are usually made to represent one or two traditional items. small chops has also made it to the list as well as other known modern food or foods that are traditionally known to other culture’s which have also been incorporated and this is  because Nigeria is a country with diverse cultures and we have been able to mix up nicely over the years.

Traditional marriages are certainly fun to be in as you tend to see all sorts of displays, the wedding itinerary is certainly different from the other kinds of wedding there are traditional dancers on display, sharing of kola nut, drinking of palm wine and so much more. Here the bride dances with her committee of friends to prove she’s not alone and if she doesn’t have any friends by her side that bride would always be embarrassed and this is one thing the brides avoid like a plague.

All in all traditional marriages are the peak because that’s what a lot of people consider as the real form of marriage as the white wedding and the court wedding are called “borrowed from the white man”.
