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.

Kente cloth is special on many levels. Around the world, the unique patterns and colors are easily identifiable as a representation of West African culture. In modern day Ghana, where the tradition of weaving Kente cloth began centuries ago, it's a sign of national and ethnic pride, printed on shoes, bags, and clothing throughout the nation. All tribes in Ghana have, and wear, a unique Kente design.
