I’m sure you’ll agree when I say that the Yoruba traditional culture is so beautiful. For more attires, check out the photo gallery. If I was forced to pick a favourite, it would be the blue and red traditional looks. The contrast between the two colours is just beautiful. Which is your favourite?

  15. @sayo..I mean for a wedding theme..most importantly the couples traditional attire

  16. blessing okoh says:

    what color of wrapper will match pink and orange gele and a pink top for an engaGEMENT……………thanks as i wait for ur response

    • Hi Blessing…Are you an Igbo bride or Yoruba bride? If you are a Yoruba bride, then it has to be either Pink, Orange (most probably) or a combo of Pink and Orange.

      If you an Igbo bride, you have more options as your outfits can use a wider range of colours. But at the same time, it depends on how much orange your gele has. If it has a lot of orange, then it would be best to go for an orange or pink wrapper to prevent colour riot since orange and pink are really strong colours. But if you it just has a little, then you have more options such as gold.

      Hope this helps….

  17. FEYISAYO says:

    pls name sake,my wedding is coming up soon and i have problem in choosing colour.i want to use pink and any other two colours but i just dont know how to combine them.i want you to advise me on the colours that can go with pink putting into consideration my husband.We are both dark in complexion.thanks.Expecting to hear from you soon.

    • Namesake mi! Congrats on the upcoming wedding. Pink is a very versatile colour, I wouldn’t even know where to start. Also what shade of Pink is it?

      Since you want to use two extra colours, one option is to use another shade of pink, e.g baby pink, fuschia pink and then an extra colour – silver, grey, burgundy, red, navy blue, aqua, purple, gold, champagne, cream…the list is endless.

      Other combos – Pink, Red, Silver/Grey. Pink, Blue and Cream/Ivory/Gold/Champagne or another neutral colour. The key is to have at least one neutral colour so it isn’t over the top and excessive.

  18. FEYISAYO says:

    pls you can also send pictures of couples thst has used my kind of colour in the past.i will be so grateful.

  19. can i use royal blue and skye blue together?

  20. Adebayo Kehinde Tosin says:

    • Hello Kehinde….Purple looks fab with Gold, Champagne, Yellow, Lilac…Just some of the many colours you can use.

  21. Pls, i will like to have th idea of price of complete aso-oke, lace, hand fan n neck beed.

  22. Hi sayo, pls help me out. My wedding is coming up In May both traditionally , Church and Reception in the same venue. Am confuse on which colour to choose. I have cream and orange or lime green and furhia pink in mind . Or which colour will go for the decoration.

    • Hi Omotola. The colour options you laid out above, are they for you and your husband? I would go with the Cream and Orange. It’s a pretty safe combo. Lime green and Fuchsia pink is nice as well, but not everyone can pull it off, as it may not look nice in every fabric or pattern. I wouldn’t use Lime green for the decor as well. It’s a tricky colour that sounds nice but doesn’t always come out as imagined.

  23. pls sayo my wedding is up in APRIL how can i combine peach and mint green for my ASO-OKE

  24. Pls my wedding is coming up n i need ur product, how do i locate u pple? Help me chose colour bcos wit wat i see here am confuse. Am dark in complexion help me out. Tnk u

  42. Tosin says:

    Kudos to u Sayo. My wedding is coming up soon & I’m confused abt d colours I chose.First,is coffee d same as chocolate brown? I chose peach aso oke & choco brown lace for d couple’s traditional attire,pink& silver or grey for our parents attire,aso ebi & decoration for d white.Pls,help me out to know if I’m on d right path.I & my hubby are dark.Again,do I need choose another colour(s) for d traditional decoration? or still use our Attire’s colour or d aso ebi’s colour.Do tell me for better options rather than d ones av chosen.Hoping to hear from u soon.

    • Hi Tosin. Thanks for your detailed comment. It always helps to tell us what colours you already have in mind, as opposed to open ended questions.

      First of all, Chocolate brown and Coffee are different. Chocolate brown is a really dark brown, while coffee could range from quite dark (think of it with no milk added) to quite light (almost the same colour as tea), but on average, the coffee people refer to in colour language is lighter than chocolate brown.

      Secondly, yes, peach and brown is a good combo. See this pic here -> http://www.weddingfeferity.com/?attachment_id=6922. She mixed it a bit with pink. (Photo credit goes to ebonix pictures). I also like the idea of Silver and Pink for aso ebi and both white and traditional decor (i’m assuming it’s all happening on the same day).

      The only change I would recommend is your parents attire. There is nothing wrong with them wearing the same colour, but I think they should stand out a bit since the decor and aso ebi colours are the same.

  43. Hello goodevening, I really admire this world. Am in need of your help here. Please I decided to choose red and blue as d colour of d day for our guest. With that, what colour do you think my husband and I could put on and also the both parents.for traditional marriage( engagement). Please help.

  44. Please I don’t know if there’s any shop u could direct me to at d popular eko idumota market or any other one. Where I could get lovely aso oke&attires. Please I do need reply fast. Please….. Thank u. Kudos

  45. kokaranwa gift says:

    Hello Dear, please my Wedding is coming up soon. I have Orange and Peach in mind but i don’t known what colour to combine with each of them. Pls help

    • Hello…I’m not sure I understand your question. Is this for a trad or white wedding? Orange goes with champagne and green, while peach goes with brown, champagne, and also green (olive green).

    Thanks

  49. motunrayo says:

    Hi sayo my wedding is coming up october and I’m still confused about d colour but I’m thiking of using peach and royal blue for d engagement so wat can d both parents use,ur reply will be very helpful. tnks.

    • Hi Motunrayo. The parents colour is not really a big deal. Many parents wear the very traditional old school aso oke – Etu, Alari, Sanya. They usually come in Blue, Red and Cream respectively. Google it to see some pictures. But really, there are no rules for them. Just make sure their colour combo is different from yours.

  50. oladoyin says:

    hi sayo, my wedding is coming up august and the color for our guest is peach and champagne but till now I don’t know what colour I and my husband would wear for engagement and reception we are both light skinned not too like please I need Ur help and would work with the colour u decide thank you.

    Hi Sayo,job well done.
    My wedding come up soon,planning the reception and traditional in one place after church. i intend to use teal and fuscial pink for the traditional.
    would like to know what colour can also go with this two for my decor.
    such that two of it is dominant for the church and another two is dominant for traditional.

    a+ b could match for either church or trad
    b+ c to match for church or trad as well.
    hope u got my analogy.

    would appreciate your prompt response.
