Walima

Walima is the final day of the wedding held by couple as they host their first dinner as husband and wife. The groom's family invites all of the bride's family and their guests to their home for a feast at their home or a marriage hall. The walima is typically the most festive event of the wedding ceremony and intends to publicize the marriage.The bride wears a heavily decorated dress with gold jewelry provided by the groom's family. Typical colour palettes are green or pastel shades. The groom normally wear a formal Western suit or tuxedo.
