How to Dress up for a Nigerian Wedding

It is another Saturday, and with it, we remember the popular phrase  ‘Owambe Saturday’. It can be daunting planning what to wear to a Nigerian wedding, especially when you have one every other week (I have gone for two weddings this month already). These tips I am about to share with you will have you looking like a chic and trendy wedding guest from now on.

Wear Pastels or Floral

Pastels are soft or neutral colours like; baby pink, baby blue, lavender, etc. These colours are perfect for weddings because they give off a feeling of sophistication without even trying. Also, Flower patterned gowns are feminine yet sexy and are a good way to show a softer side of yourself.

If you are looking for what to wear to that wedding, I suggest going with a pastel coloured / floral patterned gown for that down to earth sophisticated look.

Floor Length is the Right Length

Floor length gowns worn to a Nigerian Wedding are a personal favourite of mine. With a floor length gown, you are sure to come off as chic and sexy, depending on the cut and style.

Take the SMA Neema Maxi-gown, for instance, it is a perfect way to look chic and classy for that Nigerian wedding you have been invited to, not only that, but it will be sure to land you a Mr Right.

Ditch the Dresses for Pants

Wide-legged pants are all the rage right now, and with good reason. They have a way of making even the most basic outfits look chic and edgy. Ditching your gowns for pants are a sure way to stand out at a Nigerian wedding, especially as most people will be wearing gowns.

Pick a Statement Bag

Accessories bring out the best in any outfit, but the go-to accessories for that Nigerian wedding has to be the bag. Carry a statement bag that stands out and speaks style. It will make your outfit look ten times better, especially in pictures!

Follow any of these tips, and be the best dressed wedding guest at your next wedding.
