The wrappers and jewelries what are the for? If he getting married to the in-laws or the lady in question? Pls get ur facts right rather than telling me some fake stories u saw on Nairaland or the oones ur friends told u.


My dear you are arguing a moot point..

As far back as 1999, my father was the intermediary in a friends wedding to an Abia State girl, the list cost in excess of 600, thousand. They gave him a list for the mother and father that contained full outfit for them (Isi Agu, original red cap, walking stick, jewelry and more). The list also contained a box of Hollandaise wrapper. This was outside the ones for umunna and umuada and the traditional rites of kola nut and co. I have shared that experience here on Nairaland, feel free to search my post history if you please.

In my hometown of Agukwu Nri, the Elders council had to come up with an official list for traditional marriage in the community because of the disparity in list from different families and the cost.


Go online and search for tales from people and see for yourself. I had a pleasant experience and though my trad cost millions, it wasn't tied to the list. Those were just my personal expense.

Imo State is the biggest culprit for exaggerated bridal list. Your family's list is not a yardstick for judging Igbo traditional marriage list. Some people are reasonable others are ludacris.

The Igbo people of Eastern Nigeria are an enterprising ethnic group, and are noted for their rich culture and traditions, high business acumen and industrious savvy. In Nigeria they dominate the commercial hub running upwards of thirty five percent (35%) of small business enterprise in the country. It is common to get invited to an igbo traditional marriage (Igbankwu) and certainly worth witnessing one.



www.igboguide.org/HT-chapter11.htm

Tho missing some important info (pre-wedding activities) still a good writeup
But
Is it not about time people start focusing on other smaller and lesser known tribes within and outside the country
Most people don't get to know much about them

Though I disagree with the fourth picture, it denotes a bad omen, its only when a woman is been sent back to her parents, which signify a divorce or irreconcilable differences that she carries a keg of palm wine covered with ogilishi leaves on her head.

And the accompanied relations of the husband re few with downcast faces.

Igbo tradition marriage re conducted at night, as from 9pm till dawn, this is still active in Enugu, Ebonyi and some part of Abia states.

These afternoon show that re held now, is modern acculturation

Good to know some of these things, it's time for NTA to regain some consciousness and start doing documentaries that would enlighten Nigerians and the world, many people live in Lagos and can't tel you of customs in nearby Abeokuta , likewise myself throughout my early childhood in Ibadan I was a teenager in Europe before I knew how the Obaship of Ibadan is conducted

Oh I see...the Igbo have adopted part of Yoruba cultural aspects, to celebrate their own weddings. Interesting. cheesy

Now you know. IGBOS are quite open-minded in accepting and anchoring ideas, local and foreign in enhancing and promoting our lives and ways.
That's why our endeavours are progressive, no matter the obstacles.

Only after she has found the groom, she offered the cup to him and he sipped the wine, the couple is married traditionally.
sip ke? for my Villa the groom receives the wine but dear NOT sip or get it close to his mouth rather he pours away the wine and put money inside the cup and give it back to the bride. the sole reason is to Avoid Goitre. cos of witches and wizards grin

Trust me, madCow1 is as igbo as they come.

Stop using your own experience as a yardstick. My own roomate in the uni from Mbaise got married in 2009 and her husband spent close to two million on their wedding.

My closest friend, an igbo girl got married in 2007 and her husband spent 700k on their wedding in Anambra, and that is minus other 'hidden charges'

that is a big fat lie. do you even know what 2 million is?. Any guy that will spend 2 million on a girl he is marrying is just doing that to show his affluence and riches and not because the parents demanded it. Is he buying a duplex or a car or is it not the normal yams, clothes and stuffs on the list. And also don't use your friend and room mate's experience that is if it is true as a yardstick too.

Not some cultures where you see pictures displaying ugly grooms with horrifying tribal marks like demons.
