African weddings are a family affair and involve the combining of two lives, two families, and sometimes even two communities! There are many different wedding traditions in the African continent and no two are exactly alike.
However, in all the communities the bride plays a very special role and is treated with respect because she is a link between the unborn and the ancestors. A bride might eventually bear a very powerful child, so she is treated with respect. In some areas of East Africa the grooms family would even move to the brides village and set up a whole new house there.
There are many steps that take place before marriage. These start at a very young age where training takes place in how to be a suitable partner.
Weddings can be very elaborate, involving feasting and dancing for days within a community, they can be very simple, or they can even be performed in huge marriage ceremonies involving many different couples.
It looks better in person than on line. Thank for being real.

My daughter and I absolutely love the skirt we purchased. It was better than we thought. The material is gorgeous. The price was right and shipping was quick. - Nicole in Acworth, GA
