Yoruba bridal styles 2022 – The Yoruba people boast of very rich cultural heritage dating back centuries. This people who are mainly in the south western part of Nigeria and other countries in West Africa are people who take their culture and traditions very seriously.
One of such traditions is partying, no doubt. That is a fact. I’m not kidding. An average Yoruba person takes partying very serious. Infact, guess where the term “Owambe” originates from. The Yorubas of course. “Asoebi” originated from where? Well, your guess is as good as mine.
For an average Yoruba person, party or Owambe, a lot goes into preparations for sure. The different food, style of clothes, the guest list, and a whole lot of other things are put into consideration. It’s a total package for sure.
For a Yoruba traditional wedding, for instance, it’s a real big deal. The families of the bride as well as that of the groom do a lot of planning to get things right. One key aspect that is the choice of fabrics for the big occasion. That’s where the Asoebi concept comes into the picture.
It’s a uniform outfit for the couple for sure. Some of the family members from both sides may also dress in same fabric as the couple if they wish. Whatever the choice of outfit, what’s sure to be commonplace is a vast number of the guests dressed in uniform outfits or Asoebi.
Back to the couple. The choice of fabrics for the couple can be Aso Oke, brocade or lace, most of the time. It’s only on rear occasions that the couple settle for ankara or something similar.
Because it’s the couple’s day, the bride in particular, must look her best. She must look regally gorgeous.
