As with just about any other fashion, African fashions also go through their changes so you’ll want to make sure that the outfits you sew are up-to-date.

Most people are very familiar with this popular clothing pattern that originated from Ghana. One of the easiest and most cost-efficient ways of incorporating something African into your wedding is to wear a piece of African Kente cloth draped over your shoulder (both men and women), or wrapped around your waist… (women only).
Don’t forget all the accessories that you’ll need to have to go with your wedding regalia. You’ll need matching shoes and purse, possibly a hand-fan if you’re going to be getting married in the summer months or in a tropical area… African wedding beads, African bead necklace and other jewelry.
