when i write edo or benin city i mean from edo state not akoko edo. there r different local govt in edo state n diff tribes too
the bini/edo ppl wear bubba n wrapper n agbada all d time, even everyday.

on their wedding day dey also wear bubba n wrapper n aso oke or head tie. dats how d men sew their clothes too (agbada or dat kind of traditional top n trouser). dat doesnt mean dey r yorubas or dress like yorubas

their main attire or mode of dressing for d main traditional wedding is d head gear (okuku) which is decorated with beads but after d church/traditional wedding (during reception) dey wear d type of clothes u think/say looks like "Yoruba traditional clothes is strange here. Looks like a Yoruba wedding"

Alaga Iduro as a priest (kneeling, and praying for the blessing of the marriage)


Alaga Iduro – The Enigma at Yoruba Traditional Weddings

All across cultures, wedding occassions are known to be loudest and most ceremonious. Wedding signifies the joining of two souls, the union between two families, the coming together of two adults for the purpose of …LOVE!
Well, In the Yoruba culture, as in other cultures, it is the only accepted union designed to signify continuity and propagation of the species, of the clans, of the race, and of the culture

Not surprising, at weddings, there are music, loud music. There are dances. And everyone expresses joy at witnessing a day when two persons, two families come together with the purpose of propagating the human species.


ne of such innovation is the Alaga Iduro – literally translated ‘Standing Chairperson’ – that has become unavoidable component of most Yoruba traditional weddings. What or Who exactly is Alaga Iduro?

Well, an Alaga Iduro is the person hired by each of the marriage family – bride’s and groom’s – to be their spokesperson at the wedding occasion. Alaga Iduro is invariably a woman of many parts. She combines the role of a Singer, a Poet, a Preacher, a DJ, a Comedian as well as a Family advocate.

She is responsible for introducing the bride’s family to the groom, or vice versa ay the wedding occasion. she says or selects the person to say the prayer at traditional weddings. She writes the Introduction (of “intention to marry your daughter”) letter or the Acceptance (of your “offer to marry our daughter”).

Malibu Real Wedding

Fola and Alvin wanted a “magical and unique” location, so they chose Rancho Pacifico del Sol. The 280 guests were shuttled along the scenic California coastline and up the Santa Monica hills to the wedding site.
