SHOULD SO MUCH EMPHASIS BE PUT INTO TRADITIONAL WEDDING DECORATING AS COMPARED TO WHITE WEDDINGS?. MY ANSWER, YES.
You know why, I strongly believe any good thing done traditionally defines our Cultural heritage and showcases our Ethnicity, and, thereby Traditional wedding should be given much more emphasis to and also in it decorating because in one sentence, "Tradition defines who we are, where we come from and gives guidelines to where we are going".
Traditional weddings occur in every parts of the world with so little similarity yet huge differences. Differences based on the cultural trends of such country or ethnicity.
Such differences are been observed in the traditional attires worn, the hair styles, the music been played at such occasions, the dancing moves, even the food been served to the invited guest.
Take Nigeria for instance,we have three major ethnic groups which are Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba. This three different tribes have their cultural diversities ranging from their language to the dressing pattern because of their cultural differences. And so, Traditional wedding decoration must differ.
