The Dresses
We chose the shweshwe fabric first. We went for a yellow colour. My wish was to look like a Tswana princess and I wanted a ballgown shape. I also wanted something I would be able to wear again I asked them to make it a skirt and a top. There were no tears but I was content with my choice. I went for Igbo mermaid dress which was comfortable for the reception.Nigerian Wedding

Culture
Considering that the husband is Igbo from Nigeria and wife is Tswana, we decided to wear modern shweshwe attire for Matrimonial and Igbo traditional attire for the reception.Nigerian WeddingNigerian Wedding

The Wedding Style
It was an African wedding and the dress code was African print. Our intention was to embrace the coming together of two nations and cultures.
