LOL! These pics didn't really explain much about the difference between the various ethnic groups.

Well yeah, everyone wears gele now because Yoruba fashion has the most influence in Lagos fashion.  Gele isn't just Yoruba now, its Nigerian.  You won't find a picture of people wearing traditional clothing post 90s without gele.

The headdress is Igbo.  I've been to enough Igbo traditional weddings to know that.  Its pretty standard.  I've also been to a Calabar traditional wedding, actually a few months ago.  This is what they wear:

(The only thing is ... honestly most marriages either fail and end or they fail they and stay together - but they are unhappy. I have sooooo many friends  in one of these positions and 20 years earlier they too all started off with these wonderful weddings.
 
So now I look at marriage as a temp thing. I think if you can find true happiness for about 10 years .. you are doing good. )
 
Girl......  We are so on the same page.  You forgot how so many of them were screwed up even from the beginning.  That's the 3rd and very common scenario.
