THEASO-EBI JUNKIE WEDDING

CORALS OF THE NIGER-DELTA

Happy Sunday everyone,
Hope you had a great time yesterday? Did you attend any wedding and will like to send pictures? Please send via WhatsApp 07033040834 as I have issues downloading attachments from my mails at the moment.

Last year I made a post on the beauty of the corals of the Niger-delta HERE and showcased different brides looking exceptionally beautiful on their big day.

Today am bringing another edition to showcase the unique culture of Niger-Delta part of Nigeria.
Traditional weddings outfits of both the bride and the groom in the Niger-Delta part is absolutely regal but the adorning of the bride with coral beads is what I find fascinating!

These beads comes in different sizes and shapes. But I personally love those huge ones on the neck especially the white ones used by the Kalabari women #breathtaking

Some parts of the Niger-Delta make a complete outfit from these beads for their brides while some tie  George fabric wrapper round her chest and then wear coral beads on top.
I also like the brides that makes a hat from the coral beads and wear that with exquisite coral neck beads on their complete blouse and double wrapper outfits.

Original coral beads are known to be quite expensive and its sometimes transferred from one generation to another. But some jewellers make beautiful plastic coral beads for brides on a budget for lesser price and they still look super gorgeous on their big day.

Let’s see some gorgeous Niger-Delta brides in their gorgeous traditional wedding outfits adorned with different kinds of coral beads to showcase the beauty of the African/Nigerian culture:
