If you’ve ever witnessed a typical Igbo traditional marriage (Igbankwu) thumbs up to you! If not, please watch Flavors- Ada Ada video just to have an idea of the rich cultural traditions displayed at Igbo traditional marriage ceremonies, certainly worth witnessing one. Marriage in Igboland is not just an affair between the future husband and wife but also involves the parents, the extended family and villages. First the groom asks his potential partner to marry him. Assuming that this is affirmative, the groom will visit the bride’s residence accompanied by his father. The groom’s father will introduce himself and his son and explain the purpose of his visit.

The bride’s father welcomes the guests, invites his daughter to come and asks her if she knows the groom. Her confirmation shows that she agrees with the proposal. Then the bride’s price settlement (Ika-Akalika) starts with the groom accompanied by his father and elders visiting the bride’s compound on another evening….and so on!

The aim of this post is to inspire potential Igbo brides out there with some style inspiration. Incase you missed our first post about The Igbo bride, the traditioal styles and flawless makeovers, please CLICK HERE!
