First you go with close friends and elderly family members, inform your in-laws prior to your arrival. Go with palm wine schnapps and kolanuts, depending on the standing custom. Cash is inalienable. Go with enough. Your fiancee will be at her place awaiting your arrival. After the introduction, you may take a list from the male and female leader summarising all the cash and kind requirements. You may choose to pay cash instead of bordering yourself with 40 tubers of yam and tobacco leaves and what not. Upon fulfilling the requirements, you fix a date for Igba Nkwu. I am sure you can find your way from there.

Your to-be father-in-law will expect you to come with your father or an uncle to represent your father.
Again, your must go with drinks and ofcourse cash.
Good luck to you our in-law. smiley

Go with a family related elder. Introduction is not as serious as most people think.

The prerequisites for this visit may vary from village to village, but, basically some of the key items offered as gift to the host family include Kolanuts, Wines (alcoholic/non-alcoholic) and wrappers (Nigerian/Holland prints). Money (cash gift) is usually not offered at this point in order not to be misrepresented...This is just a summary. One thing you should know though, The igbo traditional marriage ceremony can be expensive sha..i almst got married to an abriba lady last yr;but her selfish n greedy family refused;giving lame excuses abt her being the eldest daughter;tradition demands she gets married to an abriba dude;the crazy biatch is still single and now wants me back..The tradition of selling women for the sakes of marriage must be discontinued.Every woman in each region is priceless, but they do not get sold to the highest bidder..as 4me;i am done with Igbo girls;@ OP;know more abt ur fiancee's tradition n marriage rites b4 headng dere else;they'll milk you dry..kudos..

Op this is the best and only advice. He said it on point.
Ask ur wife to be even if she don't their own tradition, she will ask. Igbos have diffrent tradition for instant we don,t mary on Eke market day.

Ask her wat is required for numb 1, give her money to buy and keep dem so u dnt hav to carry along. 2, yes u must go wit an elderly person
Re: Pls I Need Advice On How To Go For My Marriage Introduction In Igboland by Nobody: 7:51am On Aug 11, 2014
Yes, go with a friend/Uncle. This is just the first stage so money is not needed as such but you must go with drinks!!. But if she has an older relative she's close to, you guys can speak to know how best to go about it!!!

Welcome to Igbo land!! kiss kiss smiley smiley

hmmmm ur comments show that u have no element of love for this girl. A girl u claim to love and wants to marry is the same person u are reffering to as a "biatch"!!! What a world!!! Thank God they didn't allow u marry her cos u are d bigger biatch.
