24 Elegant African Traditional Wedding Dresses
The African traditional wedding dress is usually long and richly embroidered, sometimes flowing or mermaid or straight. Available in a wide variety of styles, the main purpose of the dress is to gracefully highlight the bride’s shape and figure.
Today brides have tons of options when selecting the wedding gown that best suits their style, their body type, and what they are looking for in a wedding dress. They can choose any wedding dress design that carries their signature style or something totally out of the ordinary.
In addition to being worn for the wedding ceremony, traditional wedding dresses can be worn by the bride at other times, such as her bridal shower, reception or wedding after party.
