In traditional weddings, customs vary slightly from one part of Nigeria to the other.In Western parts it is called the engagement ceremony.However, the convoy is not immediately let into the girl's homestead.Rather the bride's gate is locked and song and dance begins as a cover for negotiations.

On the wedding day the groom and groomsmen (ሚዜ) get ready at the groom's house early in the morning and proceed to the bride's parents house to begin the wedding ceremonies.A delegation carrying small gifts is then sent to the woman's home to meet with her clan elders.Deliberations on bride price actually begin on a later date and these are strictly conducted by the older men only.The groomsmen have to either serenade or bribe their way into the house so that the groom can take the bride with him.Additionally, the best man holds perfume and sprays it everywhere inside the bride's family house.
