Ladies: 5 kente styles for your December weddings.

Weddings are also a joyous occasion, imagine weddings being sad, solemn and depressing? What a shock that will be.

A wedding is a ceremony where two people are united in marriage. Wedding traditions and customs vary greatly between cultures, ethnic groups, religions, countries, and social classes.

Fortunately Ghanaian marriages are done in a very beautiful and peculiar way that it makes marriage and wedding ceremonies exciting. The traditional marriage popularly known as engagement starts with the knocking or kokooko then the engagement follows.
