Unspoken rules of an African wedding

Unspoken rules of an African wedding

Being invited to attend a wedding is a privilege. To make it on the final guest list you have most likely been hand picked from some of the closest friends and family of the happy couple. They have chosen YOU to be a witness to their love and joy. With this in mind, it is probably not a good idea to disrespect the couple, especially at an African wedding where one look from an African aunty can turn you to stone and their words cut like a knife. In this video we discuss some of the rules you need to abide by to avoid this fate.

About us:

As two young women born in Nigeria and brought up in the UK, we longed to walk into a store and see clothes that reflected our African heritage, in stylish designs that we could easily incorporate into our day-to-day wardrobes. Nothing like that existed at the time, so we set about creating it. We started by listing a few African inspired dresses on Depop and received overwhelming support, so we created an entire collection of luxury, hand crafted clothing and accessories featuring stunning Ankara wax prints made in West Africa by tailors and artisans and made it available worldwide, and so Cultureville was born. www.cultureville.shop
