During the Alaga Ijoko, the Yoruba traditional wedding, the bride wears gele, a headscarf; buba, a blouse; and iro, a wrapper tied around her waist. She adds accessories like gold earrings and necklace, beads and bangles.

The groom puts on an agbada, a traditional four-piece suit and fila, a Yoruba traditional cap. The colour of the woman’s attire must complement the colour theme for the wedding and reflect the man’s outfit as well.
