So i found another HOT color that has made brides appear super gorgeous and stunning this year.

It’s a beautiful color combination for the 2014 bride to be to consider when choosing colors for her traditional wedding attire so as to ” stylishly slay” and appear astonishingly beautiful before your groom and guests.

I also featured some other colors in the Part 1 (here) and Part 2 (here).

My next color in this part of the series is RED and Gold

Red signifies passion, sexuality and energy while Gold signifies wealth, success and abundance!

So you can imagine what you get when you combine these colors together.

Below are beautiful brides in red and gold traditional outfit on their big day:

Hello People,
Happy new week and i wish us all more of God’s blessing in this new week
I saw the pictures of Jude okoye’s wedding on Bella Naija and I was attracted to the guys’ aso-ebi in the post.
Remember I made a post last year on the aso-ebi of the guys at Peter and Lola Okoye’s wedding here.
The color theme for the male aso-ebi was white and blue.
The fabric is cotton fabric also known as Atiku material (white) adorned with a cobalt blue cap and a cobalt blue muffler on their necks which made all the guys look so on point.

See them showing so much swag in the following pictures:

Hello all,

The weekend is almost here and we are getting ready for the next owambe. But before then I will like to alert us on a new trend in the ‘aso-ebi industry’.

This new trend for Brides and Wedding guests is the MULTI-COLORED ASO -OKE!

The fabric is the same aso-oke fabric in different colors (2 colors, 3 colors or even 4 colors) merged together to create a perfect blend.

This new rave is absolutely beautiful and trendy, the color variation of the fabric exudes class, elegance and sophistication.

You can also use this multi-colored aso-oke for baby dedication/christening or even as your Sunday’s best attire to worship the King Of kings.

 Below are beautiful multi colored aso-oke used as gele (headgear) and ipele for your peusal:













Hello people, Early this year i promised to deliver better content and improve my posts on here and i think i have actually improved a bit.

In view of this, am introducing a new series called ‘the aso-ebi junkie wedding’, where i will feature a particular wedding and showcase the aso-ebi styles for that wedding to inspire in selecting appropriate aso-ebi color/theme for your owanbe(s).

So for this series i have partnered with excellent photographer Shola Bolaji you can check his blog  here  and Facebook page here to exhibit lovely weddings with excellent pictures that showcase the beauty of aso-ebi and it’s true essence.

And my first post in this series is actually a Muslim wedding/Nikkah ceremony between Hameedat and Jamiu in Lagos Nigeria. I love the pink and white aso-ebi theme used by both men and women at this party.

Here they used two different fabrics as aso-ebi. Pink lace and fuchsia pink gele for the ladies as well as white atiku material and pink fila for the guys. These colors/fabrics came out really nice on all the guests as they use it to make different designs and style in honor of the couple.

Happy new week people,

There is a saying that ‘when purpose is not known, abuse is inevitable’

You may be wondering how this relates to theasoebijunkie? This phrase came to my mind when I saw a post online, where someone wrote that —- ‘there is more to life than aso-ebi” and lots of comments followed this post as to how they are tired of the aso-ebi syndrome!

Some people mentioned that celebrants use aso-ebi to raise funds for their parties/events while others even made resolutions not to buy aso-ebi again or restrict themselves to a particular budget for aso-ebi within the year.

I actually felt bad after reading the post and the comments because aso-ebi is not meant to be a source of funds for your celebrations/occasions but it should be a unifying factor of your friends and family members as they come out to grace/honor you at your occasion.

Aso-ebi, which means family cloth in Yoruba language is being bastardized from the actual intent of the Yoruba culture which is to promote love and unity within the family.

Have heard people sell aso-ebi for ridiculous amount like N100, 000 (ahn! ahn! Kilode?) And some much more outrageous amount of which when their guests finally get the fabrics, the quality/value is nowhere near the amount they paid for it.

Aso- ebi is not meant to tear people’s pocket nor should it make them close their bank accounts.

So I will like us to break this myth that aso-ebi prices must be over the board before you can get good fabrics for your guests to attend your parties, which was what my new friend Bolatito (love her already) and I discussed this past week.

You can get quality aso-ebi for as low as N10, 000 or even less depending on your choice of fabric.Examples are: silk, chiffon, ankara,adire, guinea brocade for men and some lace fabrics.You can also make provision for your guest to buy in yards so that they can buy only the number of yards they need and not the whole 5/6yards. In the case of head-gears (gele), you don’t have to sell the whole pack, most people can not tie large/skyscraper gele. so you can cut one pack into two to reduce cost for your guests.

I urge us all to consider our friends and family member’s budget when choosing fabrics and do not let people cringe anymore when they hear the word –Asoebi.

Let the love and unity being displayed as they all wear one fabric to honor you be your ultimate goal.

I remember when my junior sister was getting married, my Late father (My Hero) actually paid for the aso-ebi of all his family members including extended family members. He gave it out to all of them for free because his delight was just to see everyone in that fabric.

So am encouraging us all not to abuse the aso-ebi tradition but try as much as possible to preserve the culture of bonding within the family as well as our friends while planning our events.
