The latest trend by Kenyan couples during Ruracio ceremonies (dowry payment ceremonies) is wearing matching outfits.

There are many his & hers outfit designs. Many people go for the design where by the lady has an African print dress and the gent wears a shirt made of the same fabric. But that’s becoming cliché cause everyone is doing that. Now, there are many other modern and trendy designs that you can have your tailor make from you, spanning from mermaid dresses, skater dresses to a little more intricate designs. As for the gent’s outfit, you can choose to go full blown African print or have just a dash of it on a plain color, just enough to match your lady.

While most people will go for modest skirt or dresses designs, now, you can even have a pants design for the lady. I’m not so sure that will be taken so kindly by the folks seeing as this is a Ruracio and the lady is expected to be modest and decent (and some tribes still look down upon women in trousers) but if you’re that daring fashion conscious modern bride-to be, then why not?

Check out some designs to inspire your his & hers outfit when your Ruracio time comes:

1. A glamorous design for the lady that's similar yet slightly different from the gent's shirt.

13. The colors do not have to be similar if you both like different colors. You can have a dress in your favorite color and the gent in his, then incorporate an African print fabric to match.

It's different, unique and still smart.
