1. Nigerian wedding guest dresses: styles colors and designs

How were African wedding dresses for guests chosen historically?

In the past Yoruba bride would pick the Aso-Ebi styles, colours and fabric for her wedding guests. She even bought the Aso-Ebii fabrics or outfits in order to resell them to her guests with some profit. She used this extra money to cover some of the wedding expenses and for the ‘thank you’ gifts for each guest.

The bridesmaids (Iyawo) would wear uniform Aso-Ebi dresses, Gele head-wraps, and even beaded necklaces while the groomsmen would wear their Nigerian wedding guest dresses in a single colour scheme and design. Even ordinary guests could wear the same Aso-Ebi colours or patterns.

However, wedding guests will often want to look unique and stunning in the crowd of the similarly-dressed people. So, girls often look through fashion magazines, ‘bella naija’, popular Instagram pages and Nigerian movies in order to pick the most elegant outfits to sew.

As a result, stylish dress for wedding guest will make any conventional wedding into a vivid color burst while the pics will be absolutely gorgeous!
