Efik

The Efiks are a minority tribe in southern Nigeria with a traditional wedding attire that is so unique from other cultures. The bride first wears Ofong Ukod Anwang, an attire which includes a knee length skirt, blouse (usually covering only the bust) with decorated beads. The second attire is the Onyonyo, a big long flowing gown as shown in the photo above. She also wears over the top hairpins and carries a decorated staff.

The groom wears a white shirt with colourful wrappers known as the Usobo. He also puts on a beaded jacket, beaded shoes and a hat. He must not forget to hang a long piece of cloth (the Okpomkpomon) around his neck.
