BN Weddings Trend Watch: Bridesmaids rocking Headpieces!

BellaNaija Weddings




Headpieces by John 3v3

Hi, my name is Ink and I’m co-wedding editor at BellaNaija Weddings. I was asked to guest blog at our friend at EWAM, and since their weddings are so sweet, I immediately knew what to feature –

Bridesmaids! I mean, what could be better than your girls by your side on the most special day of your life?

The headpiece trend is one that keeps reemerging each decade with subtle reinventions.

When it comes to Nigerian bridesmaids, we tend to be more formal – we kind of have to be, especially for the religious wedding ceremony. For some ceremonies, we have to cover our hair, hence a stylish compromise was born – the headpiece! Fascinators, Hats, and more! Here are bridesmaids rocking headpieces from different sources, from short and chic to Grecian and romantic.

    The very first group (in the very first picture)in royal blue and the wine and gold group on the staircase with bride in the middle teasing her veil. Those are two really elegant and well dressed groups. Beautiful gowns and properly fitted to each bridesmaid.

    In theory, I don’t mind fascinators. In practice, not so much. Just because I don’t know when I’d wear them again.

    Maybe church?

    Truth be told, that guy is good, ITAM by kingssignature. My
    best is Tolu’s maids (nee Odukoya) torq and burnt orange hat. Its
    classy, has the vintage feel, chic and modern. His pieces are
    really nice.
