If you’re thinking ‘what is the best colour combination for a Nigerian traditional or white wedding?’ I got you covered – in this post. I know how stressful it is planning a wedding and also looking for ideas on nice colours that work well together. Let me help you. I spent a lot of time researching colours, and finally, have put together what I call the ultimate Nigerian colour combinations lists. As a result, I made a colour combo list for Peach, there’s another for Wine colour combinations, and different lists for other colours. Each of our colour combo lists has up to 50 sets of combinations and includes the trending wedding colour combinations in Nigeria. They also work for non-wedding colour combo works such as interior design. Swipe or scroll down to check out our colour combo lists for different colours.
I made sure to cover so many colours – hundreds of colour combination sets (you’ll find nice 2- and 3-colour combinations). Our list has some of the best sets of colours that are known to go well together. All you need to do is pick and choose. You won’t ever have to ask anyone again: ‘what colours combine or go well together?’. Find below lists of the best colour combinations ideas I put together for you – different lists for different colours. Check them out one by one. What you’ll find are colour schemes and combinations of colours that look appealing together.

If you’re a Nigerian, you know how we’re so obsessed with wedding colour combinations – one combo for the traditional wedding; another for the white wedding, another colour combo for family members’ aso-ebi, a different combination for friends aso-ebi, and another colour combination for office colleagues aso-ebi. That’s in addition to finding wedding colour schemes for the bride and groom’s wears and that of their bridesmaids and groomsmen. That’s not all – plus a colour pallete for the wedding venue. Wow! What a hard job that is. That is what Nigerian brides go through, plus the usual anxiety and stress associated with wedding planning. Choosing a colour combo is a stressful affair, but I’ve done the work so that you don’t have to stress yourself.
Save this page because you’ll need it again and again. If you’re a bride asking: ‘how do I choose a colour combination for my traditional wedding attire and venue decoration?’ Or ‘I am looking for a colour combination to sew a new ankara pencil dress’, just come to this page and pick one combo. To make sure that you don’t go through stress to find a colour combination, I took the pain to do extensive research to provide you with appealing colour combos for different colours. I also grouped the colour combinations by the type of colour so that you can quickly filter through to pick a combo around your favourite colours.

- Men can use this guide when combining colours for their native wear and caps, or to choose colour combo for the men aso-ebi or to choose matching ties or socks for their groomsmen/ bestman suits.
- Aim for harmony and cohesion when picking different aso-ebi colours. Do you want the overall colours in the group pictures of you and your aso-ebi men/ women to look cohesive, together, in-sync and coordinated, without appearing off or clashing? Ask yourself: if the couple and a few people in each aso-ebi colour group are in the same picture, will all the colours appear ‘together and cohesive’ in that picture? If you’re a brides or groom planning to wear Peach for your traditional marriage attire, use this guide to choose colours for your ore iyawo/ aso-ebi ladies or men.
- This colour combo guide will also help you to choose a bridesmaid and groomsmen outfits that do not clash in pictures.
For brides and grooms who are picking wedding colours, it’s easy to choose your own outfit colours, but consider whether everyone’s colours will tie-together to look pleasing to the eye in a group picture – just use the above peach colour combinations list to choose a matching colour for your various aso-ebi people.
We usually see traditional wedding pictures of a bride and her asoebi bella ladies together and the colours are clashing, even though they look gorgeous when not snapped together. So, when thinking of your own traditional wedding fabric colours, also think of how your (bride’s) outfit will match your asoebi belles when snapped together in group pictures.
The Struggle Nigerian Brides Go Through To Find Matching Colours for Wedding
Colours have a way of bringing a certain ambience to weddings. Every wedding is colourful, but more so with Nigeria weddings where the bride is faced with picking tons of colour matches for different things aside from her wedding colour pallete. She has to choose her and her groom’s outfit colours. Also, she has to pick a nice wedding colour scheme for her venue decoration and wedding party (bridesmaids and groomsmen).
For Western brides, that would have been all, but for a Nigerian bride, she also has to find the right colour match for her and her groom’s traditional wedding attires. That’s not all, she also has to pick aso-ebi colour combinations for different groups of relatives and wedding guests. That’s definitely a hard and stressful thing, given that the wedding planning itself is super-stressful.
For years, we have been sharing the stress of finding matching colours for traditional wedding and every other wedding thing with brides in our NaijaGlamWedding community – they’re always asking us for ideas on how to mix and combine every imaginable colour in this World (onion colour combination ideas, cockroach colour combos and so many funny colour names that made us roll on the floor with laughtr.
