70% of the wedding in Nigeria are huge, this is mostly because it seems that every single culture in the country believes that a wedding ceremony is the unification of the bride and groom as well as their immediate and extended families not to mention the community as a whole. The size of the wedding makes for more money spent as well as the total following of tradition.
In the west (the Yoruba land) the wedding ceremony is just as big with the bride and groom both wearing hand loomed cloth woven by cloth weavers known as the aso oke. The aso oke which translate’s to “top cloth” in English is a very fabulous but pricey fabric but because its a wedding ceremony spending top Naira for the outfit is a necessity.
For a Yoruba bride, wearing her fabulous piece (buba, Iro, Gele and Ipele) made from the aso oke is a dream. If you are a Yoruba bride-to-be and you too are planning to wear your aso oke piece then you are in luck. There are so many buba styles right now, while the iro (wrapper) is still almost typical the cuts and designs of the blouse (buba) is definitely different.
This week alone we’ve come across several buba styles and they are simply fabulous. The timeless fabric has been giving definitions overtime and this period is no different. For soon-to be Yoruba brides you would need a look-book to showcase the latest aso oke trends that you can be inspired by and that’s why we are here.
