THEASO-EBI JUNKIE WEDDING

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,

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:
