Recently, Ummi Rahab got married to her longtime boyfriend Lilin Baba on the 18th of June, 2022. The marriage has been the most trending event in Kannywood and northern Nigeria.
Apart from the glamorous wedding, another thing that caught the attention of people was the bridal outfit. Ummi Rahab gathered a reputation for being a fashion icon, so, naturally, her wedding dress will be such a topic of discussion.
Even though her bridal gown was beautiful, it was panned by critics. The white gown had a simple style with a neck collar.
“It is a wedding down and not a graduation gown” was the response of someone who reviewed the gown.
To many, the gown looks ‘too local,’ and the collar was ‘unnecessary’. She was also accused of using an ‘extra bra’ and ‘padding’ her hips. In addition, the dress was too revealing, which led to the conclusion that it was rented or not hers.
Many people liked the second gown’s style but not the fabric.
The red gown complimented her fair skin and the henna on her with her beautiful purse. To some, it is the most beautiful of all the gowns she wore.
Surely, because of the gowns’ beauty, they must have cost a fortune.
So how much did each cost?
Checks on lacesfabrics Instagram account reveal that each gown could cost anywhere between N100,000 to N140,000.
Additional costs for tailoring and design could amount to an extra N200,000 each. All in all, Ummi Rahab’s bridal gowns cost between N500,000 to N600,000.
The gowns were probably from Brides World located at 1 Audu, E Bello Rd, GRA, Kano.
The groom on the other hand wore his white Babban Riga and a matching Zanna Bukar cap, and a black cover shoe to match.
