Edo traditions: Adesua Etomi pictured with her ‘fake bride’ at her traditional wedding to BankyW (photos)


During a typical Edo traditional wedding ceremony, ‘fake brides’ are brought out by the older women of the bride’s family and the groom is asked to identify who his wife-to-be is.

If he successfuly does, she is presented to her inlaws and handed over to her husband.

The bride’s wedding planner, bisolatrendybee has now confirmed that this indeed took place contrary to speculations on social media that Adesua didn’t follow Edo customs. In a post on IG,

‘The Bride and the fake bride. #BAAD2017 was fun. The Groom’s family had to confirm they knew who their bride was and after it was confirmed the fake bride was fake, it was time for the real bride to dance in and she wanted to be brought in with her amazing friends. They slayed.’
