These Elegant Hausa/Fulani Brides Melted Our Hearts
The wedding itself is called the Fatihah and just like other tribes the bride is decked to the teeth in her attire and jewelry. The northerners do a lot of gold when it comes to accessories and unlike the other tribes where showing some flesh is allowed, the northern bride is well covered in length garbs and has on a head cover and veil as well.
The wedding event in the north also has a dinner party/reception as part of the ceremony and so we decided to help out our Muslim/Northern sisters with some styles prospective brides can cull ideas from.
Most brides also have on the “laale” traditional henna as part of the bride’s adornment for her big day.
