Wedding ceremonies in Nigeria are great, especially ones organized in the western parts of the country. While a lot of the celebrants are expected to observe certain traditions and follow certain rules, the guests are not spared either, as there are certain etiquette rules they too have to abide by while attending the occasion.
If you are visiting Nigeria and planning on attending a wedding, you are going to want to put your best foot forward. And that means getting well acquainted with what the rule book says. To give you a head start, Jumia Travel, Africa’s No.1 online hotel booking portal, shares 6 rules for wedding guests in Nigeria.
Do not wear any shade of white
The general idea is that the brides wear white or shades of the colour, including ivory, cream e.t.c. You are not allowed to try and upstage the bride by wearing anything that is primarily white or a dress in a hue that is really close to white.
You can however wear something with a touch of white, as long as the white does not dominate the ensemble. Actually, you are also not allowed to wear anything that will keep all attention on you rather than the bride. Stay away from plunging necklines, and thigh high slits.
It is her day and it is important she has all the attention.
