A Nigerian lady simply known as Chioma has become a hot topic on social media after she rocked a customized Ankara dress to her white wedding.
According to the beautiful bride, her unique wedding dress was made by her friend and colleague.
Sharing photos online, Chioma wrote;
”Initially, I thought she would laugh at the idea of an Ankara wedding dress but she loved the idea and made sure I looked great”.
“I didn’t bother to tell anyone about it. It wasn’t even up for debate . I just told my friends not to wear ankara. I am sure if I had mentioned it to people, they would have tried to discourage me because human preferences are different.”

@blvck_Witch; Omo so long as she’s happy abeg. The dress is beautiful and who said we must wear a white dress???
@victorsozaboy; Can we still call it “white” wedding in this case? And what makes it white wedding really, the fashion, the ritual the concept? Is suya also steak? Happy Sunday, I am missing amala hence my questions
@easyblaze24; Why are we so soaked in another man’s culture? When I was in Iran, most of them hardly understand English, its only there native language, same in UAE, locals hardly understand English, why wont we for God sake be proud of ourselves for once. I hope d Ankara is made in Nigeria.
