Trend Alert - All white traditional wedding ensemble!

Honestly, i don't remember ever seeing it on anybody until songstress, Tiwa Savage wore it during her traditional wedding last year. I remember predicting it was going to become a huge trend and guess what? It is now. Probably Tiwa wasn't the one that invented it but, like it or not, she has given the trend 'a name and face'. We are talking about wearing an all white ensemble for a traditional wedding. Usually at this part of the world (Nigeria), traditional weddings are very classic and overly colorful. Regardless of how you try to 'tushen' things up, you're still going to have to go back to basics cos wearing an all white? I'm really not sure whether or not i'm up for it, one thing that is certain though is -wearing an all white ensemble for a traditional wedding is very unique and beautiful no doubt.

And BTW, i'm not just talking about the brides now but the grooms equally.



If there is anything i have noticed though, it is that the fact that the trend works best with couples with 'darker' skin tones. It compliments them better i think.

I really don't know where i'm at with it but are you guys up for the idea and why? Putting in cognizance the fact that you might be wearing white for your wedding proper, wouldn't you see this as rather too much?

I will keep observing the trend and hopefully fall in love with it so much that i'll get to do a post on how to pull it off. I've seen a couple of brides after Tiwa's wedding in it and also, a few of my friends are hell bent on rocking it for their tradition weddings as well. But, what are your thoughts on it?

Remember to ask me your fashion and beauty question via twitter @soladunn and lets get talking............
