Bridal Inspiration – My Yoruba Bride

Traditional wedding ceremony in Nigeria is a good avenue where different ethnic groups showcase the rich culture of the people. The event is usually colorful and glamorous as Yoruba Traditional Weddings also known as Engagement party are depicted. This can be seen from the Bride’s outfit, ranging from Iro and Buba (Blouse and Wrapper), Gele(Head gear) and Ipele(same fabric with the Head gear usually hung on the shoulder or Loosely tied round the waist), Bead etc.

This post is basically to depict a Yoruba bride on her Engagement Party, the day she is married traditionally. But it won’t be complete without a colorful Makeup.

For this bride a gold eye and red lip accentuated the look since her Gele and Head gear is a combination of Gold and white.
