We told you last year that Nigerian brides were not playing, especially with their traditional bridal outfits! We’ve been watching brides slay week on week since January 2018 and we decided to share 10 stunning traditional bridal outfits we’ve spotted at Nigerian weddings this year.
Abisola from #weRtheAfos looked absolutely stunning in her Yoruba traditional bridal outfit. Her fabric was supplied by Loola O Blings and the outfit tailored by BethO.
Oluwatobi from #TheObodos wore a stunning fringed
This military inspired trad outfit worn by DIY bride Aisha of Iysha Couture for #AandJTheParty is first up on our list of fab traditional bridal outfits.
Fatima’s stunning traditional bridal outfit by Kulu Abuja gives us Northern bridal vibes
Fola’s very blue and sparkly outfit made her glow. All we can hear is Beyonce’s voice singing ‘Shining, Shining, Shining’
Tomisin from #ToMileks wore a regal and embroidered aso-oke corset and skirt, which we absolutely love 🙂
Tola from #TheNubianParadise struck the balance between loud and subtle in this stunning outfit by JBliving. She stood out for all the right reasons
Morenike from #OnTheBits2018 wore a stunning traditional outfit would easily pass for a couture dress on the runway. That aso-oke by BisbodV is stunning.
Valerie‘s traditional bridal outfit would have easily passed for a white wedding outfit especially if it was white or ivory. The Efik bride wore a stunning green off shoulder dress.
Chichi from #ChadFinity18 wore an Igbo traditional bridal outfit, which gave us a taste of Komole for Igbo brides. The Delta-Igbo bride, who was styled by Lavish Bridal, wore an off-shoulder blouse and skirt with a cute bow. The skirt was made of Akwa Ocha (a fabric made from wool; it’s the traditional cloth worn by the people of Anioma region of Delta state, Nigeria) and featured a white bow detail, which we absolutely love. We love the modern twist on this outfit and it reminds us of how Deola Sagoe’s Komole redefined Yoruba traditional bridal outfits.
