Hello beautiful, lately we have been seeing a lot of Asoebi and Ankara styles adorned by Africans for weddings and so on. Today we bring you Isiagu Style Combinations for couples as showcased by our Igbo brides and grooms.
Marriage is considered one of the three most important family events after birth and death. In Igboland, the traditional marriage is referred to as Igba Nkwu or Igba Nkwu Nwanyi (wine carrying). It is the climax of an intense traditional marriage process as friends, families and well-wishers gather together in colourful attires to celebrate the couple.
The bride’s traditional attire is usually the center of attraction but the groom’s look is almost just as important. Whereas the bride’s attire are usually made from brocade and top quality lace, the groom is adorned by the legendary Isiagu attire alongside other combos.
The words Isi Agu mean “a lion’s head”. The name was given to the fabric patterned with lions’ heads all over. Once upon a time, this fabric was very expensive and one could rarely see it on people, especially the common folks.
More and more modern Igbo grooms are returning to wearing the traditional Isiagu outfit. The ladies have not fully adopted this trend as it was originally a ‘men’s style’. However, we’ll see some of our ladies beautifully rocking the attire to make a perfect blend of Isiagu Style combinations.
Isiagu is also used to create lovely wedding dresses and it’s often chosen for both the spouses. There are many quite festive and lovely options with a fair background and a bright colorful pattern. Accompanied by bright jewelry, such garments for both the bride and the groom will create a special mood.
Inspire yourself with these carefully curated and colourful Isiagu Style Combinations for Couples.
