Introduction ceremonies as we used to know them continue to change. While following tradition is key at these cultural ceremonies, there is no harm in adding a bit of luxury and spice to your ceremony.
From the dress code to the decor. Here are some trends that will add a splash of flamboyance to your party.
Groom changing attire
This is a very recent trend that continues to grow. Attention was drawn to this when singer Rema Namakula introduced husband, Humza Sebunnya to her parents. Sebunya changed three times. Now, the trend is seen more often.
Having maids while cutting cake
Before, only traditional attires were worn at the introduction. This later morphed into brides dressing up in the groom’s cultural wear (If they came from different tribes) when cutting cake and later into putting on party dresses. Now, however, brides make special dresses for the bridesmaids during cake cutting. The dresses are usually long, colourful and round. This new trend has been embraced by many.
The photo booth
It has been there for some time but now, the creativity in kwanjula booths continues to grow. While before, the booth was usually customized with the bride and grooms name, what matters now is how beautiful it will come out.
Gomesis and sashes made from the same material
It was all about contrast in the past. Colour blocking was also once a thing. Now, however, brides are making their sashes from the same material. Others are choosing colours that are closely related and we love it.
Men and their entourage dressing up uniquely
Before, the only person that would be distinguished from the man’s side would be the groom and that would be done by adding a flower on his pocket. Now for a change, men go to their introduction ceremonies dressed differently and having their groomsmen dressed distinguishably from the other people that escort them.
Grooms dressing up in attires that are not necessarily the official traditional garments
It is important to agree first on this with your lady and also make sure her family is not rigid on dress code. Other than that, grooms coming up with custom made attires is now a trend.
