the unique culture of Niger-Delta part of Nigeria.
Traditional weddings outfits of both the bride and the groom in the Niger-Delta part is absolutely regal but the adorning of the bride with coral beads is what I find fascinating!
These beads comes in different sizes and shapes. But I personally love those huge ones on the neck especially the white ones used by the Kalabari women #breathtaking
Some parts of the Niger-Delta make a complete outfit from these beads for their brides while some tie George fabric wrapper round her chest and then wear coral beads on top.
I also like the brides that makes a hat from the coral beads and wear that with exquisite coral neck beads on their complete blouse and double wrapper outfits.
Original coral beads are known to be quite expensive and its sometimes transferred from one generation to another. But some jewellers make beautiful plastic coral beads for brides on a budget for lesser price and they still look super gorgeous on their big day.
Let’s see some gorgeous Niger-Delta brides in their gorgeous traditional wedding outfits adorned with different kinds of coral beads to showcase the beauty of the African/Nigerian culture:
