Due to the sheer size and diversity of Africa, wedding customs vary greatly not just between countries but between local communities.

There is a growing trend among African communities where wedding ceremonies and marriage processes are blending traditional customs with modern practices.

This is evident throughout many locations within Africa, where Christian and Muslim followers will participate in traditional customs as well as ones typical to their religion. The diversity of traditional beliefs throughout the country leads to enormous diversity among African communities.
