Now you don’t have to get married in Africa to have such things. There are officiants all over the world who can assist you in having the engagement/wedding ceremony of your dreams.  If there are contemporary traditions (from the West) that you’d like to incorporate feel free to do so. It makes absolute sense for those of us from the Diaspora. Do it up!!
