Today I want to give a little history about my husband’s home town called Benin(Edo State),my home culture is a bit different from his,although I was born in a State where its culture was different from my main home town,but it helped me in adapting to other people’s culture.

EDO WEDDING TRADITIONAL DRESS

In Edo state when a woman is about to marry the first thing that has to be done is the traditional marriage before the white or church wedding.In Edo state the traditional clothing looks like the picture below
