The Igbo traditional wedding is called “Igbankwu” in the Igbo language. It is a social event that is laced with the Igbo tradition and lots of heavy spending. During “Igbankwu” both the families of the groom and bride look their best. Although there are usually lots of disagreements as regards how much the groom’s family should really pay before being allowed access to the bride, all these are masked by the beautiful attires of both the bride and groom.
