  1. pls I want to know the best attire to use for my introduction coming up soon, though my hubby is not an Ika man. an ika attire that will suit both bride and groom

    • Hello Joy, the best attire for your traditional wedding is your people’s traditional/ cultural attire for weddings. You may or may not also incorporate your groom’s people’s traditional wear as a second outfit change, if you like.

    am Julian, an Igbo lady getting married to a Benin guy. what should i wear on my upcoming traditional marriage?

    • Hello Julian. Congrats on your upcoming wedding.

      You can wear your Igbo traditional wedding attire for brides, and if you have extra cash to spend, you may do a second outfit wearing his Benin traditional wedding outfit for brides.

  3. Tambari gift says

    Hi my name is gift,I am from rivers state my traditional marriage is coming up soon,and am confused of wat to wear,am chocolate in complexion.

    • Hello Gift, congrats on your upcoming wedding.
      Looks like you’re asking about colour combination for your traditional wedding. If that is so, there’s no right or wrong colour, BUT a guide is either to decide your colours from your best everyday colours that you usually like or wear – for example, if your normal best colour is pink, base your colour combo on pink.

      >>Another idea is to copy colour combination and/ or styles from past wedding pictures you see on websites, magazines, Facebook, instagram or Pinterest.

      Those are my favourite ways to find colour combo ideas.

  6. Ume Lilian says

    plz I need help, am fair in complexion can red hear gear, red shoe, red purse, red bead and blue cloth fits or match my day for my up coming traditional wed..? Lilian.

    • Hello Lilian, blue is a nice colour, but since you are of fair complexion, you may want to go for a not-too-bright blue and a cooler shade of red such as wine colour.

    • ayi kikanme says

      everything red when you are not masquerade, variety is the spice of life add another colour either white or golden colour

  7. Pls how does ijaw delta dress
    I’m confuse
    Can I see a photo?

  8. Ella obaga says

    Hi hello my wedding comes up soon…l I’m a delta lady uhrubo to be presice and I’m getting marriage to an Edo guy Sean to be presice. I want to kwn if he will dress as a delta man or he Wil dress Edo and I will dress delta way.

    • Hello Ella. There’s no rule for you or him to dress in a specific cultural attire – both of you can either dress in your trad attire (Delta) or in his own (Edo). A second option is for you to dress in your trad attire and him in his Edo attire. The third option is for you you and him to have 2 outfits – in the first you come out dressed up in Edo attire or Delta, and after some time the two of you will change to the second person’s traditional outfit – that way everyone will be happy.

  9. Good day, I have chosen torques blue and cream color for traditional marriage attire. What do u think?

    • Hello Gold, that’s a nice colour combo – turquoise blue combines beautifully with cream colour.
      Other nice wedding colour combinations for TURQUOISE BLUE with any of these: yellow, red, brown, fuschia pink, coral, purple, orange, green, cherry-red, dark-violet.
      Congrats in advance, on your traditional marriage ceremony.

    am in Kenya and would like to know if you can help me buy lace fabric for ceremonial gown online. this is a great site and i love all your creations . thank you.

    • Welcome to NaijaGlamWedding, Josephine; and I’m glad to know that you love our posts. MiddlesexTextiles.com is a great UK-based online store that sells lace fabrics. Visit their site and I’m sure you’ll find many beautiful things. Also, they deliver to a lot of African countries.

  16. pls dear,,am planing my trad and i mk my colours to be royal blue,,baby pink and blown,,hw do u fink it luks lyk

    • Hi Rapheala, welcome to NaijaGlamWedding. That’s a nice wedding colour combo that you’ve chosen. I suggest that you choose 2 of those as your main colours and then use the third colour minimally. That way, you can have something like royal blue and baby pink with a touch of brown, OR you could have Baby pink and brown, with a sprinkle of blue. Anyway, Pink and Royal blue is a popular wedding colour combo among Nigerian brides.

  17. Please i need a matured colour and design for my engagement

    • Hi Esther, most brides base their wedding attire colour on their favourite colour. Try that, and then choose designs from the video above.
      There are plenty of designs and ‘matured colour’ combinations in the over 100 styles we featured above. I suggest that you find some quiet time and sit down to look at each Niger-Delta traditional wedding attire picture in the above video. (2) Then make a note of the ones you like. (3) Then watch again, and narrow down on your best 2 or 3.

  18. Please i’m wearing army green lace with a light gold sequence as the blouse design, can a black purse and shoe go with it? Thanks as I await ur reply.
