My cousin Wole, on my mom’s side of the family, got married a few weeks ago to his wife Edom. When I found out Edom was from Ethiopia, I knew this was going to be an exciting cultural fusion wedding.

The wedding spanned across four days from Thursday, May 25th to Sunday, May 28th, 2017. May 25th was the Yoruba traditional wedding at The Ballroom in Bethesda, MD , Saturday was the church wedding and reception at Foxchase Manor in Manassas, VA, and Sunday was the Ethiopian wedding.

Here is what I wore on Thursday:

So for Saturday, I wanted to wear an outfit that was comfortable, since I would be wearing it all day.

I decided to wear the Mode9ine Jamila Keyhole Bell Sleeve Dress.

This dress was super comfortable to wear. I was able to dance comfortably in this dress at the reception.

This dress is a ready-to-wear item and is  only $65. It is only available for purchase on the All Things Ankara Marketplace here.
