Wedding Etiquette: What You Should Never Wear To A Wedding

On this side of the planet, weddings have  become a part of the weekend lifestyle. Every other Saturday, somebody you know or someone that knows someone you know is getting hitched. And one question that often times will come to your mind is: What do you wear? Well, maybe it’s time you also start asking yourself “What shouldn’t I wear?”

Here are the wedding etiquette you need to know.

1. Follow the dress code.

Most weddings have a dress code and as guests, you are often times told what to wear even when there is no aso-ebi. So stick to it. For example, if the invitation says purple dinner dress with dark heels specifically, wear it-just don’t be shy to add your touch to it.


2. Wedding Etiquette suggests you avoid dressing in white.

Unless the dress code specifically says white, please do not go to any wedding in a white dress. White is traditionally saved for the bride. Even the chief bridesmaid isn’t allowed to dress like the bride all in white. Though now days, brides go in other colors, it’s still safer not to be caught unawares.

(Toke Makinwa)

3. Try to evade stealing the spotlight from the bride.

This is a NO! NO! The golden rule is to keep the attention on the bride of the day-she is supposed to be the most beautiful woman at her wedding. Avoiding going in clothes that are revealing, overly short and tight.


4. Pay attention to the venue chosen.

Whatever you choose to wear should befit the location and type of wedding you are attending. Think about the aura of the event, the people attending and even what the experience will be like.

Finally, don’t be scared to ask for clarification if you don’t totally understand the theme or dress code of the wedding.

Tying braids help keep your hair clean, although it might sound just strange to you, but believe it; this is true.

History of braids

Many hairstyles have come and gone but braids remained since age old. Yes, braids have existed since ancient times. You might have watched classic movies where most girls, young and old, have braided hair. You probably even tie braids at home or outdoors. This hairstyle has appeared on the heads of humans- both women and men all over the world’s history. Different countries and their early beauty techniques are related with different kinds of braids styles.

Different patterns of tying braids in different places usually specified a person’s ethnicity, wealth, social status, and age, religious amalgamation etc back in the days. In Africa, braids are a fragment of tribal traditions and customs. Its roots can take us back to 3500 BC, where braids denoted wealth and social status because they were used on wigs which were worn by royal groups. Numerous tribes exist on the large African continent. We have always regarded braids as our people’s custom as well as a fashion statement. Each of our regions has their own traditional braid variants and style patterns. Different tribes used to embellish their crowns with rare braids styles which reflected their origin and region.

Let us go back in time and learn about the evolution of braids.

Cornrows, Africa (3500 BC)

This is probably where it all started. The Cornrow braids style is created by braiding small portions of hair in rows closely to the scalp. A French ethnologist discovered a rock painting with his team. The painting was from the Stone Age and it was found in Sahara’s Tassili Plateau. The painting dated back to 3500 BCE and it had a lady wearing cornrows feeding her kid. Similarly, a 500 BCE Nigerian clay sculpture had a Nok civilization figure wearing cornrows to the head.

Egyptian braid (3100 BCE)

Egyptians scorn body hair. But their love for hair on the head can be traced back to ancient times. That is why they styled their hair using jewels, extensions, beads and wigs. They probably used braids to keep their head cool even in the scorching climatic conditions. We all recognize the look of “Cleopatra”. That is how they braided their hair; by separating their hair in to separate strands of braids which would have beads on them. Sometimes, they would weave in beads from down to the roots to its tips, while at times; just to keep the weight light, added beads to the tip of each braid. If you do not know of the wealthy Queen Meryet-Amun, she was buried along with additional braids.

In ancient Greece, many women and slaves would keep their hair short. Similarly, Spartan women, who would participate in games kept their hair short for obvious reasons. However, wealthy women were seen with long braided hair; arranged and twisted in fancy styles for important gatherings and events. It seems like that used to portray their social status and persona.

Native American braids (Pre CE)

Braids are usually imagined to be related to traditional hairstyles of the Native Americans. But that is just a fragment of the fact that there have been 500+ tribes of Native Americans. And it can be fairly assumed that every tribe had their own meaning and customs related to braids. Wisconsin, Kiowa, and Cayuse women would have braids in their head. The Kiowas would sometimes let their hair loose while the Cayuse wore two lengthy braids. The Wisconsin styled their braids with ribbons and would keep one long braid down their backs.

For the Quapaw Women, singles braided their hair and would sometimes roll and wear the braids behind their ears. Married women would leave their hair loose. Interestingly, Plains Indians used to wear 2 long braids, but these were men. The Plains Indian women would have short hair; shorter than the men. Speaking of gender differentiations!

Ancient celts (750 BCE)

Once occupants of Western Europe and British Isles; the ancient Celts were powerful fair-skinned, tall people popular for their fancy clothing and hair styles during 750 BCE. Although great in the department of style, even the Romans and the Greeks were interested in the ancient Celts. The women and men had long hair- with the noble class styling fancy detailed braids which were mostly well-decorated. For those who were working people, braids were simply meant to keep the hair away from their work.

Medieval Europe (1066-1485)

Back in those periods, showcasing long flowing hair was forbidden. Things were not at all the same as now. If an elder women belonging from a noble family would be seen around with their hair unfurled or head uncovered, they were accused of being witches. That is the reason behind the well-known styles of braids such as the braided crown, the double braid, the fishtail braid, or the double braided bun usually were covered using head-pieces.

Mongolian undercover braids (13th century)

We do not know about you but Mongolians have always been standing out as style influencers. This is not new but has been going on since old times. With the expansion of the Mongol Empire during the 13th century, women of the noble families would wear fancy hairpieces and styled their hair elaborately. Hundreds of years later, photography came into business. That is when the rest of the world had a glimpse of the wealthy Mongolian Halh ethnic group’s summer outfits and trendy hairstyles of the 19th century.

They would prepare such cool and styles; it is heard that Queen Amiadala from Star Wars is said to have been inspired from that style. They wore elaborated wing-style hairstyles with the tips of their hair kept covered using braid-sheaths. In the modern world, you can still find Mongolian women wearing two braids, long and hidden similarly with designed black cloth bags.

The Chinese braid “Queue” (1644)

This braids style is also known popularly as the “Queue” and this unique braids were worn by Manchuria’s Manchu males during the Qing dynasty, the last imperial dynasty of China. This braid style can be seen in those old-school Chinese Kung-Fu movies. Men would shave all the hair on top of their temples and the rest of the long hair would be tied into a pigtail. The braid would go down their back. It would be considered treacherous if one did not wear the queue and people would even be executed for this reason. They surely took braids to another level.

The modern cornrow (1970s)

The modern version of probably the oldest type of braids that started the trend of braiding hair can be mostly seen worn by the African-Americans. The Black Is Beautiful movement in the 1970s motivated people to accept their base and natural hair texture and patterns. This was against the trend of using chemically enhanced substances to straighten the hair.

When we speak about cornrow braids, it would be incomplete without mentioning a few instances. Blake Edwards, a director, filmed Bo Derek wearing a swimsuit and flashing a cornrow while running in slow motion. Since then, many celebrities were seen sporting cornrows- Justin Timberlake, Madonna, Juliette Lewis, Axl Rose, K-Fed and many others.

Everybody knows what YouTube is. This video site was launched in 2005 and just 8 years later, YouTube had over 1 million videos on braiding. This is without even counting Instagram, Pinterest and such other sites. Braiding has now been made accessible to everyone using the internet.

“Begging on Social media has to stop” – Yemi Alade

Yemi Alade who made waves with her single, “Johnny”, took to her social media page to attack folks who are fond of begging for money or other material things on social media.

According to the singer, she wants a stop to the activities.

She Wrote: “Seriously begging on social media should STOP. NO BE ONLY YOU DEY HUSTLE. if u wan work send email to my label. Work plenty.”

Meanwhile, It has been a few months since Yemi Alade released her third studio album, Black Magic, and she has stayed hot on our radar since then by releasing videos for some of the standout tracks off the album.

Now, she has released her first single since the release of Black Magic, “How I Feel”, and it’s definitely a vibe.

This song is nothing like the Yemi Alade we usually get, as it’s a simple love song without her staple ‘Mama Africa’ vibe. On this song, she bares her heart, explaining how she feels towards her significant other: “I’ve fallen completely, my baby you too set oh, my baby you get sense oh”.

The mid-tempo beat leaves a lot of room for us to hear and appreciate Yemi Alade’s impressive vocal range, which rarely gets the love it deserves. While the song gets a bit repetitive after a while, it’s a very sweet and lovable song and we would like to see Yemi Alade on this form more often.

You can listen to “How I Feel” below:
