BN Wedding Glam: The Bolanle Bob-Egbe & Temie Williams-Olley Traditional Wedding

BN Wedding Glam is a feature from Bella Naija Weddings focused on the wedding guests.
We have many exciting wedding features planned for January 2011 and we want to get the ball rolling.

On the 9th of December 2010, Bolanle Bob-Egbe & Temie Williams-Olley celebrated their traditional wedding/engagement ceremony in style at the 10 Degrees Event Centre in Lagos, Nigeria.
The colours for the bride’s friends were gold and blue – the gold was beautiful lace sari while the ‘george’ provided the dash of blue. In honour of the bride and groom’s Delta and Yoruba heritage, respectively, guests crafted their aso-ebi into styles inspired by both the Delta (2 Piece Wrapper) style and also the contemporary ‘skirt and blouse’ looks.

Check out photos from the event and expect the BN wedding feature in February 2011.

    wow very courageous of her, to have gone off a limb like that and not stuck to the ankara status quo …nice!

    • Gs2Gents January 12, 2011 at 8:49 pm

      Emm Nigerians don’t only use ankara for engagement aso-ebi. Lace & george are just as common if not more!

    Most SE and SS tribes wear George. It’s not an urhobo/itsekiri-only thing

    They all look good! I think the blue fabric is Indian, not the “george” wrapper. Not sure sha, just looks so to me.

    • CC January 12, 2011 at 12:55 pm

      Well george material is originally an Indian fabric, that has been adopted by many Nigerians east of River Niger.

    • Miss Face January 30, 2011 at 10:19 pm

      i agree, i thot george is a very thick, stiff fabric and this blue looks transperent, soft and flowy. can anyone help me out cos me likey alot!!

BTW guys George wrapper is not for eastern and Southern people oo, me maa(mummy) wore a beatiful blue and green George on her traditional/engagement day in the late 1980’s and we are from Kogi/Benue (both parents are Idoma/Igala mix)…
