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:
