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,

ANKARA JUNKIE, ASO-EBI INSPIRATION, WEEKEND SPOTLIGHT

ANKARA ASOEBI #FAAJI2018

Hello my beautiful readers,

Last weekend was the multicultural traditional wedding of the Son of Oyo state Governor Senator Ajimobi (Idris Ajimobi) and Daughter of Kano state Governor Ganduje (Fatima Ganduje)

Immediately I saw it in the news, I developed interest and stalked their hashtag FAAJI2018 which was indeed a display of the Hausa and Yoruba cultures ranging from the bride’s hausa costume,Asooke, Durban horses, royal event theme, henna night and so many beautiful and magnificent expose of the richness of our diversity in Nigeria.

Another aspect which is my major interest is the asoebi. Because this is a society wedding and both parents are politicians, I was expecting that the event will be filled with a sorts of Swiss laces as asoebi but to my pleasant surprise, I saw their beautiful guests slaying in colorful Ankara fabrics. OMG!!! To say I was elated will be an understatement.

Remember few weeks back HERE, I made a post on Ankara aso-ebi. And I was trying to show you how your guests can slay stylishly in Ankara fabrics at budget friendly rates.

So when I saw that # FAAJI2018 was filled with mainly Ankara designs, I was excited because this shows that you can use Ankara fabric aso-ebi for your event not just because you have a low budget but because you just want to appreciate and give you event that Naija or African Vibe.

Let’s see some of the pictures from # FAAJI2018 :

The pretty Bride and

The guests in different gorgeous Ankara fabrics :

Awesome! Awesome display of the Nigerian culture.

Also check out this picture of the bride and her friends in the Fulani traditional attire :

Then the Wakanda formation of the groom’s friends :

All in all, # FAAJI2018 was splendid and I wish Idris and Fatima Ajimobi a very peaceful marriage filled with all the good things of life.

Cheers,

THEASO-EBI JUNKIE WEDDING, THEASOEBIJUNKIE STARS

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:
