10 Stunning Ankara wedding gown inspiration for the modern bride

It’s a way to display their heritage, and look every inch the bride that they are.

(Ankara is African Wax Prints that are omnipresent and common materials for clothing in Africa, especially West Africa. They are industrially produced, colorful cotton cloths with batik-inspired printing. -Wikipedia)

Here are 10 brides that absolutely rocked the Ankara wedding gowns like the queens they are.

The Full Ankara Ball Wedding Gown
@therealrhonkefella

This has to be one of my favorite wedding gowns of all time, because it takes confidence to rock a full Ankara wedding gown.

Her crown (tiara) which is sitting pretty on her head, compliments her Ankara colors. She looks absolutely fabulous.

This gorgeous wedding gown has the best of both worlds. The bride has effortlessly and beautifully merged Ankara and the lace in the most spectacular way.

The Ankara bow in the front and back, with the Ankara tail is so beautiful.

The Tea-Length Wedding Gown

Not many brides do tea-length dresses, but when done right with the right volume, it is such a beauty.

This dress is one of those done really nicely, with a touch of Ankara. (Spot her groom with the same Ankara as his waist belt. So adorable).

The Full Ankara Ball Wedding Gown
@TojuFoyeh

This is another full Ankara ball wedding gown that is absolutely stunning. I specifically like the ‘lacey’ hands and the bow on the shoulder.

I also love her feather tiara, really suits the drama of the dress.

The Full Ankara Sheath Wedding Gown

We love this full Ankara sheath wedding gown for its simplicity; and the bride looks so beautiful.

It is especially nice for a beach themed wedding ceremony.

The Full Ankara Modified A-line Wedding Gown

This bride looks like an African Queen in her simple Ankara modified A-line wedding gown with a bead-like tiara.

If you are wearing a short wedding dress, there is no better way to elevate it than the way it is done by this unique bride.

The Sheath Wedding Dress with Ankara

This is for a bride who wants to wear her full white wedding gown, but still wants to add a touch of Ankara.

This is done perfectly well. She looks stunning.

The Ankara Cape Wedding Gown
@Pinterest

How well can you wear a cape wedding gown other than accentuating it with Ankara as done by this bride???

So elegant.

The Ankara Trumpet Wedding Gown
@Pinterest

This Ankara trumpet wedding gown is also one of my absolute favorite, in terms of the style, fit and the creative way the Ankara is being used.

Such an exquisite bride.

Would you rock any of these, or perhaps an Ankara wedding gown?
