Nigerian Weddings are not complete without the wedding guest style aka “Aso-Ebi” which is literally a form of identification for guests at the occasion. It is symbolic – a gesture by the guest who wears it to show their support and solidarity for the couple who are celebrating.
Aso-ebi comes in different kinds of fabric. Traditionally, Aso-ebi were made from Aso-oke fabrics and handmade fabrics like tie and dye. Today, Aso-ebi comes in diverse fabrics, colours, patterns and designs.
Finding the right wedding guest style can be a tad of struggle. For the guest, there is a desire to look different among a sea of sameness. Every wedding guest strives to be the best-dressed guest, totally dressed to kill and perhaps share the spotlight or totally upstage the bride. Chai!
