Avoiding white at a wedding was a rule invented to show that the married couple was pure at the ceremony hence white bridal dresses.

For men, a tuxedo is always the best choice but African wear is also worn frequently.

For women, formal dresses, maxi dresses, skater dresses, or African traditional wear are common. For example a kitenge. On the other hand, If your style is trousers, wear an official one. Unless the bride tells you otherwise, avoid short dresses. Below are the outfits you should wear to a wedding:

c) Men

A tuxedo is always the recommended outfit. African wear is also a good choice. Although we have seen some guys showing up with casual wear like jeans and t-shirts, it is not recommended since it can be seen as a don’t care about the event.

d) Children of all sexes

Children can get away with dressing. They can wear their normal outfits or their parents can dress them in their best outfits. However, we would recommend high-end designer outfits like tuxedos or African wear if your family is close to the couples or if you are a VIP to the event.

This is important because wedding memories last forever and there will be photographs that the couple will store and treasure all their lives.
