Every country and culture has its own traditional wedding ceremonies. America, being the melting pot that it is, is a true amalgamation of multiple cultures. Within the same week you can go to India, head to Greece and make it back in time for a colorfully, ceremonial Nigerian wedding. African Bride USA is a new magazine tailored to the traditional African wedding. Currently, there are a number of bridal magazines but none that actually cater to the bride of African descent.
Africa is one of the largest continents with the oldest civilizations on earth. It is home to a wide range of religions and cultures. Depending on which African country or culture you are in, wedding ceremonies can be very elaborate, some even lasting for days.
The “Real Wedding” sections of African Bride will provide an outlet for brides of African descent to share their wedding stories and unique cultural traditions. The magazine caters to people of African descent across the globe including South Africa, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Egypt, Morocco, and Kenya, to the Caribbean Islands, South America and the United States. The magazine features real weddings, articles and tips to help brides-to-be plan their perfect wedding; it will be the “one-stop shop” for every African bride. “We see this magazine really taking off in the future, as African brides reach out to their cultural traditions,” says Tola Lufadeju, editor-in-chief of the magazine.
The president for Nima Marketing Inc., Summer Amin, says, “There was a gap in the wedding industry and African Bride USA has just filled it. With this magazine, brides of African descent finally have the resources to execute the perfect wedding with the fusion of African and American cultures. We look forward to the future of this magazine.”
The magazine will be sold in major retailers like Barnes & Nobles, Borders and Walden bookstores later this year. For now, the magazine is available for purchase on their website. For more information, check out www.africanweddingsus.com <http://www.africanweddingsus.com/> .
