This is a beautiful concept but if he chose to wear his native attire for his church wedding how come he could not convince the bride to do the same?

Isn't it obvious that he is marrying an incompatible lady whom he can't control?
Nigerian men of this generation are in big trouble; they've gone from Samsons to Simpsons overnight.

I still wonder how women who were in our parents' time relegated to the back seat as passengers in the home are now the ones who call the shots?

Only 2 in 10men today are the ones whose overall decisions are not somewhat influenced by their wife's opinions on it.
That in itself is a calamity.

Several years ago, I suggested a business proposal to my mumu friend and he told me he could not be definite on his stand right away because as someone who loved to carry his wife along; he'd need to discuss it with her.
That was the end of my friendship with him.

The last time I saw Simpleton the simple simp was on a weekday in a tailor's shop; he took a casual leave from work to accompany his wife to go amend her gown.

I'm not impressed.

Like NwaAmaikpe said - he should have forced the wife to do same.

See how they look like improper fraction.

I love the groom's attire. I am a Christian and I bliv with time we will successfully separate the White man's culture esp as regards dressing from Christianity.

White wedding is European culture (including the attires). For the groom to ditch the suit & put on his own cultural attire is no big deal. It shows he's an enlightened man, a non-conformist.

Which englightened, it shows how local he is, since white wedding is a european culture let us behave the way they behave and dress the way they dress, after all didn't he do traditional marriage where he wore traditional attires undecided.

Sis, only colonised minds talks like this. A freeman acts according to standards he chooses, not as dictated by colonisers.
Know what? I guess the reason he chose his attire was cuz they didn't have a traditional wedding, but he wanted to dress traditionally, so he decided to dress this way. He's a freeman, not a 'zombie'.
