The Edo traditional wedding is one rich in culture, and unique in every sense. In a typical Edo traditional wedding, the bride wears a red suede attire, with a beaded crown known as “Okuku” worn on her head. She also wears these beads, known as “Ivie”, on her hands and feet. The groom wears a white skirt and shirt beautiful decorated with Oba’s traditional staff.
The bride price is a very important factor in an Edo traditional wedding. The groom initially receives a list which includes foodstuffs and drinks. On the day of the traditional wedding, the items are received and an elder ensures that everything on the list is available.
