Weddings are great and they are a time for fun, laughter and celebration.
Weddings are a big deal in Nigeria and the Yoruba’s have one of the flashiest wedding ceremonies among the three major tribes in the country (Igbo and Hausa are the other major tribes).
One thing that I find fascinating about the Yoruba weddings is the vibrancy of the entire atmosphere, the Yoruba’s are typically a very boisterous tribe and so it doesn’t come as a surprise that their wedding ceremony would be just as vibrant.
With splashes of colors everywhere and different uniformed attires a Yoruba weddings almost looks like a carnival……….

A typical Yoruba wedding usually plays out like a script, from the arrival of the groom to the proposal, bride price etc but whats most attractive isn’t the groom but the bride.
Every single culture and tradition states that the bride on her wedding day must look like and angel e.g if she had kiko when the groom met her she should have her hair braided.
The bride must look so rich, beautiful and full of life because it would be an embarrassment to the family if you look otherwise.
For Yoruba brides this is the day when you can be as loud as you want accessories wise; bring out the gold, the silver, the copper as the bride should look like a princess, something out of a fairy tale as weddings are an enactment of a fantastic imagination.
