2019 WEDDING COLOR: ORANGE

Hello my beautiful readers,

It’s almost the end of the year and there are loads of parties happening every weekend especially weddings.

And like I mentioned in my last “2019 wedding color” 👉HEREwhere I wrote about emerald green, some colors are always dominant in Nigeria every year especially during the party season. So our focus today is on the ORANGE COLOR.

Orange they say is the new black! And this bright and bold color has become a classic like black and it’s now a popular asoebi color. Most celebrants and brides want orange asoebi either for their friends or family members. Or sometimes choose that color for their parents outfits just to infuse this stunning color into their events.

It’s super beautiful on dark skin and also gorgeous on #brownskingirls. It naturally pops on every skin tone making a very bold and bright statement that makes the event colorful

You can combine orange with other colors in order to tone it down or up the brightness of the color .

I particularly love the monotone combo of orange fabric and orange headtie because it’s so elegant and classy as you can see in the following pictures :

Some of the colors you can combine with orange to tone it down or Brighten it includes: black, grey, royal blue, green, gold, white,lemon, purple


So if you are planning any event this year or towards early next year and you are still trying to make a decision on colors, I will suggest you choose orange.

If you need a complete color combination ideas for your wedding, don’t forget we offer color consultation services for events

Also if you need good quality asoebi Fabrics in orange or any other color, we sell beautiful fabrics for asoebi from 8000 Naira for 5yards and above. Buy from us and let your guests slay stylishly.

THEASO-EBI JUNKIE WEDDING, WEEKEND SPOTLIGHT

THEASOEBIJUNKIE WEEKEND SPOTLIGHT #thebashunion

Hello everyone,

Hope you are enjoying the long holiday if you are in Nigeria and Barka da Sallah to our Muslim community.

Today I’m bringing back your favourite series on this blog #theweekendspoltlight

This is actually the first one this year 🙈 ( check the last one HERE ) but over the weekend, a particular traditional wedding broke our timeline on different social media platforms with the hashtag #thebashunion and this triggered the need to bring back this series.

It was such a beautiful and colorful event with top celebrities and society ladies in attendance.

One striking thing about this wedding is that they didn’t choose any fabric as asoebi but they only made a uniform asooke for their party guests as asooke asoebi and it was beautiful.

Like I normally say here even though I’m a fabric vendor, when you want to choose asoebi always consider your guests. If a uniform gele be it #segogele or asooke will be perfect and affordable then it’s okay. You don’t have to use or sell fabrics as asoebi.

In this case , their party guests are high class ladies so money is not even a factor and most of these wealthy folks even give out asoebi for FREE. But it could be due to time frame because manufacturing and shipping fabrics in large quantity takes like a month to 6weeks that’s for air freight but asooke is made locally and it will be faster to get and distribute.

So choose whatever works for you and make it easy for your guests . You can choose affordable fabrics of great quality as asoebi or you can choose quality asooke gele or Sego gele for your asoebi or just pick a color code. Remember the most important thing is to have your guests honour you with their presence at your party.

Now let’s see the beautiful party guests we spotted at #thebashunion last weekend in their lemon green or Chartreuse color asooke gele asoebi:

First of the gorgeous couple ( Dara and Tosin) in all white looking super stunning

Then in their asooke traditional outfit ( Did you notice they are wearing different but complementary colors)

Now to the party guests in fabulous fabrics with the asooke :

Then some other party guests in different gorgeous designs without the asoebi gele but still caught our attention as they are spectacular in different colors also:

What do you think about #thebashunion traditional wedding? Share your thoughts in the comments section and will you use only asooke gele as asoebi for your party? Let me know why.

Cheers,

NORTHERN NIGERIAN BRIDES

Sometimes a go I made a post HERE about the Hausa or Northern Nigerian Amariya I shared my thoughts about the beautiful Hausa/Fulani rich culture displayed at their weddings which is quite unique from other traditional weddings in Nigeria.

Over the years, the Amariya or Northern Nigerian brides have evolved in their fashion/style for their big day and I felt I should make another post on this.

In as much as we all know that Hausa especially the Fulani ladies are conservative but we can’t ignore how stunning they look naturally. Have you met some Shuwa Arab ladies?? OMG! They are super gorgeous.

Their smooth and shiny skin either dark or light, their long and soft sometimes curly hair , their love for perfumes and incense ( they love to smell nice)😉 are some of the attributes of the Northern Nigerian ladies.

They spend a lot of money on their hair/skin especially on natural skin care products from Arab countries and some parts of Nigeria ( Maiduguri in particular) where they have local spas that you can treat your skin with natural herbs at low costs.

When getting married, the northern Nigerian wedding is more of a festival especially for the bride.

The display of culture from the outfits to the makeup, henna, exquisite gold jewelry, unique veils is amazingly beautiful.
Since this is our focus on today’s post, grab your popcorn and check out these beautiful pictures of stunning Northern Nigerian brides and let me know what you think in the comments section:

THEASOEBIJUNKIE WEDDING – #JR2017

Hello everyone,

We will not allow the month of love(February) to end without sharing beautiful pictures from the wedding of our #christmas couple.

The bride as being an amazing customer for about two years (or more), so when she contacted us that she was getting married, I was so excited. She chose coral red and teal green for her wedding theme, so we stated with her aso-ebi fabric and I sent her options that fit into her color theme/budget and in a short while we sealed the asoebi deal. She’s the calmest bride ever! Then we moved to family fabrics and we sealed that too as well as fabrics for her own outfits, asooke and sego headtie (s) and the native handfan for delta brides.

Let’s see these fabrics in pictures as we celebrate this amazing couple displaying so much love at their traditional wedding.

Bride’s first outfit – Fabric and headtie from us

She slayed stylishly in our teal green tulle lace embellished with pearls and stones matched with our beaded sego headtie

Here she steps out with her boo in her second outfit which I really love because she allowed me style her in champagne gold monotone combo.

Fabric is champagne gold George with matching tulle blouse.

Headtie was champagne gold asooke fully embellished with Swarovski stones and gold pearls

Handfan was also embellished with stones (we had to go all out for our bride)

Here is our pretty bride with her brothers in Atiku and teal green asooke caps also styled by us

Now to the asoebi Fabrics, her female friends and colleagues turned up in this colorful yet classy/beautiful tulle lace with white sego gele that blends perfectly into her color theme and also makes you think of Christmas while the male counterparts wore white Atiku with coral red caps. All supplied by us!

I really wished we got more pictures of the asoebi Fabrics but from the few we got, we have no doubt that everyone slayed in different gorgeous designs.

We appreciate the couple for choosing us to style them and their amazing families and guests on their big day.

We pray that God bless their home and that their love for each other abound forever.

Thanks again for choosing Theasoebijunkie.

If you are a bride and you need our services for traditional bridal styling for any tribe in Nigeria, please send us a mail at theasoebijunkie@gmail.com or call/whatsapp 07033040834 and we will take the stress of you.

Cheers,

CORALS OF THE NIGER DELTA

Hello everyone, 

In 2015 and 2014, we made posts on the beauty of corals worn by the Niger-delta part of Nigeria brides for their traditional wedding HERE and HERE

Like I mentioned in previous posts, the brides from the Niger-delta are adorned with beautiful coral beads most times from Head to Toe which makes them the cynosure of all eyes on their big day.  This culture is quite fascinating, purely African and super gorgeous. 

The coral beads gives the bride a royal appearance and The Niger- delta bride whether from Edo, Delta or Rivers state outfit can never be complete without the beads costume.

There are always of different sizes and shapes ranging from small sized bead to medium to large to extra-large! Yeah, extra-large because some of them look very huge on the neck of the bride but am not sure of the weight if it’s as heavy as it looks (if you are from Niger-Delta kindly explain further in the comments section. Thanks).

Customarily, coral red color is the standard color for the beads even though some use other colors like white, peach e.t.c. it’s only the coral colored beads that actually give the native effect that every bride will want to portray on her traditional wedding day.

The beads can be worn as a top on the wrapper tied on the chest; it basically covers from the shoulder down to the waist in some parts while some other parts use the beads to make a cap and the bride gets to wear this very regal cap and also adorn her neck with the huge size coral bead neck piece! EXQUISITE!

Some also use it to adorn the native hairstyles that are exclusively made for brides on their Big Day to give the Emotan (Benin Queen) look with different sizes of coral beads carefully arranged on their neck as they present them to their groom.

Once again, check out these gorgeous brides adorned with different designs of corals beads on their big day to inspire you especially if you are from the Niger-delta and you’re trying to make a decision on your traditional wedding outfit :

Cheers,

THEASOEBIJUNKIE STARS: ADEFUNMI2016

Hello everyone,

It is my delight to bring our amazing #theasoebijunkiestarcouple to you as they rocked theasoebijunkie asooke on their big day.

Our bride- Now Mrs Adeleke made it clear that she wanted a unique and gorgeous design of asooke for the traditional wedding and not the regular hand-cut buba but something easy breezy that will be airy and not so heavy.

So we decided to make a tiny interlace hand cut buba in champagne gold with patches of orange and neon green to represent her color theme with lots of blings scattered on it.
The wrapper was a plain champagne gold asooke but we also joined the tiny inter lace handcut to the lower part which turned out so beautiful.
Because the buba and wrapper had a burst of colors, we decided to tone it down with a plain white head-tie and ipele embellished with gold stones and pearls which the bride slayed stylishly on her big day.

The groom also looked regal in his  champagne gold agbada with white embroidery design and champagne gold cap.

Theasoebijunkie brand is so proud of the final outcome of the couple’s attire and we are grateful to be part of your big day!

Now let’s see the amazing pictures from Ripples Photography:

THEASO-EBI JUNKIE WEDDING

THEASOEBIJUNKIE STARS #ADEOLU2016

Hello everyone, Its been a while!

Today post is about the exquisite and customised red/white tulle lace for the wedding of Adedoyin and Tobi Allen.

The groom’s Sister contacted us for a red/white and black theme Asoebi , so we sent in options and she finally choose one and made deposit for production.
But this was when the foreign exchange policy in Nigeria suddenly changed and sending money to our suppliers can be likened to the biblical pool of Bethsaida,Coupled with continuous rise in dollar rates and some other factors it was a bit challenging. But we pulled through by the grace of God and delivered the fabrics to our clients and their party guests slayed stylishly.

I am extremely grateful to the Allen’s for the opportunity to be part of their big day supplying Asoebi for 100 guests and more orders came in but we had to stop at 100 because of time constraint.
And particularly for their patience when we had delay in delivery due to circumstances beyond us.

The red/white and black color theme was so elegant and sexy!

Here are some of the pictures of part guests in the our beautiful red and white tulle lace embellished with stoned and pearls for your perusal:

Once again, we would like to say huge congratulations to  Mr and Mrs Allen and pray that their home be continually filled with unspeakable joy and everlasting love in Jesus name Amen.
We are very grateful and we do appreciate your patronage.

Cheers,
Modupe
