In Nigeria, the traditional marriage ceremony is one special moment and opportunity to showcase the rich cultural heritage of the different ethnic groups in the country. The Yoruba traditional marriage is not far fetching from this fact. The traditional marriage is one of the most glamorous; evidently seen from the outfits of the Bride, Groom, Parents and guests. The bride’s outfit might be seen as simple, but with an immense level of pageantry.The bride dresses in the native attire of Iro, Buba (Blouse and wrapper) And the Gele (head tie).
It could be of fabrics such as lace, damask, velvet, Nigeria wax fabric, or any other fabrics that appeals to her. Also not forgetting the Ikpele which is a fabric draped across the shoulder or tied loosely around the waist, it has to be of the same fabric with the gèlè. Her outfit will also be accessorized with beads, gold chain and earrings, bangles and shoes to match.
