Even though Nigeria is a melting pot of culture and rich history, their magnificent wedding celebrations serve as a custom that unites everyone together. Specifically, there are multiple layers commonly associated with Nigerian nuptials, including several days of celebrations based on one’s tribe. For Igbo and Yoruba people, the traditional wedding comes first, followed by a church ceremony that is often referred to as the “white wedding” due to the color of the bride’s gown. Nigerian nuptials are also community celebrations where extended family, distant relatives, neighbors, and well-wishers of any variety are expected to attend—often garnering a guest list of 250 guests or more.
