African wedding dresses are more captivating and colorful than the white, Western-world bridal attire. They often feature matching headpieces and, sometimes, even the groom is wearing a matching suit. Let’s have a look:
With amazingly rich colors, African wedding dresses really capture the essence of the big day. Colors vary throughout the entire spectrum, but some of the most loved are: blue, orange, mustard, emerald and purple. Usually, it’s the mix of prints and textures that really makes the dress stand out. The bolder, the better – these print mixes are so beautifully eye-catching!
Most dresses have an A-line bottom part and a fitted or asymmetrical upper part. Some are mermaid-style gowns, which flare consistently towards the hemline. The look wouldn’t be complete without spectacular, matching jewelry and head-tie (gele). All in all, it’s a superb display of prints and saturated colors which leave the viewers eager to see more.
