Traditional weddings are a celebration of our roots, and fashion-conscious brides are celebrating in grand style.
We like to see brides that put their own spin on the traditional wedding attire. It is definitely not boring anymore. From assorted and adventurous colours to unconventional styles, more brides are taking fashion risks and reaping the benefits.
Take a look:

5. Igbo bride in red
6. That neckline…
Modern, yet Igbotic. That’s how to do “cultural evolution”. We have our own wine which our Igbo wedding is named after, due to its religious and social importance in #Igbo culture/history. So, we ought to be proud of it and always use it for Igba Nkwu. That way, we’ll maintain the originality and uniqueness of our marriage rite and hand it down to future Igbo generation(s). This isn’t a radical view, it is the norm across the world; for instance, you won’t catch French people insisting that because America is a superpower, Californian wine should replace French wine in French social affairs. Infact, I doubt you’ll find French people who think that foreign wines are better or even comparable to French wine. Likewise, no other wine is comparable to Mmanya Nkwu when it comes to consummating marriage in Igbo culture; by accepting and drinking Palm wine, an Igbo groom publicly declares his readiness to share life together with his bride at the most intimate level. More importantly, it marks the beginning of a new covenant between them. 📸: @Somxystylesofficial.
