The rich culture of Edo state is evident in the beautiful, elaborate attire of the Edo bride. She is a showstopper, generously decked in coral beads on a backdrop of fabric. She wears beaded anklets, waist beads, and bracelets around her wrist called the Ivie-ebo, earrings called Emi-ehorivie, a cape called Ewu-ivie made entirely of beads, while holding her beaded clutch or Ekpa-ivie.
The Edo bride is a queen who must have her crown- an intricately beaded piece of art called Okuku. Traditionally, her hair is put up in a high up-do called Eto-okuku, and the beads are sewn directly onto the hair.
