We love traditional weddings, those moments are mind-blowing and the Benin traditional wedding is one of such you would definitely love, this is because of their rich cultural heritage; the brides are always the centre of attraction. When they turn up, they leave us with no choice than to love them.
There is always no end to the gawking and drooling of these brides, this is certainly because of their epic traditional outfits; they are known for their unique traditional outfits which comprise of various fabrics ranging from Lace, George to Velvet etc, the symbolic beads that are ever present from the head to toe of the brides. It is safe to say that the brides outfit can be termed incomplete without the beads because of its very significant role.
For this bridal inspirational, the talented makeup artist, @kristabelmakeovers has successfully brought out the glam in this gorgeous Edo bride. In these photos, the bride is rocking a black velvet with some white pattern sewn into a tube dress with the cape beads; she is accessorized with a coral bead on her neck, ears, hair and hands. She completed her outfit with a beaded purse and a horse whisk for her big day. And her makeup was flawless.
